Chinese equipment manufacturer Xiaomi made an official announcement that the successor of Mi Max called Mi Max 2 will be unveiled on 25th May in China. The company also released a video teaser on its Weibo account.
Xiaomi launched a dedicated website where it is teasing the features of upcoming Mi Max 2. The website suggests that Mi Max will sport a massive display and battery like its predecessor. Mi Max 2 may rock an over 6-inch display backed by a huge 5000mAh battery. Considering the excellent battery life on Mi Max, a slightly larger battery coupled with optimized OS may further enhance the battery life. It will be interesting to see if Xiaomi retains the same design language as Mi Max or revamp the design following the latest design trends.
