A new device from Xiaomi has cleared certification from SIRIM. As far as we can tell, it appears to be the Mi Max 2; although the model number doesn’t quite match up. That said, there’s no other device from Xiaomi expected to arrive in Malaysia.
The Mi Max 2 is, as expected, the followup to the massive Mi Max. This time around, the goal isn’t so much size as it is about squeezing as much battery life as possible from the smartphone. Xiaomi has gone as far as to use a less powerful but more efficient Snapdragon 625 SoC to this end.
Despite this sidegrade, the Mi Max 2 retains the massive 6.44-inch FHD display from its predecessor. There’s also 4GB RAM, 64GB or 128GB of storage, MicroSD support, 12MP rear camera, and a 5MP front camera. The giant battery from the Mi Max has been further expanded to a 5,300mAh battery.
There’s no telling when Xiaomi will be getting the Mi Max 2 on to the market. It shouldn’t be long from now, seeing that the device is now cleared for use in Malaysia.
