Xiaomi launches Mi Max 2 with massive 5300mAh battery, starting at RMB 1699

BEIJING, CHINA, 25 May 2017 — Leading technology company Xiaomi announced today Mi Max 2 with a massive 5300mAh battery, the latest device in its large-screen smartphone category. Mi Max 2 will be available from 1 June in China starting at RMB 1699.

Mi Max redefined the large-screen smartphone category when it launched a year ago, spurring demand in this segment and crossing 3 million units sold to date.

With a 6.44-inch supersized screen, Mi Max 2 is perfect for watching movies or TV shows on the go. In addition, the stereo speakers on Mi Max 2 intelligently activate in landscape orientation, transforming it into a mobile theater with an immersive audio experience.

Thanks to MIUI optimizations, Mi Max 2 is great for use in any situation. With “One-handed mode”, which is a feature that makes the usable display smaller, users can still navigate with ease using just one hand. Furthermore, MIUI will soon introduce “Split screen”, which allows two applications to run in the foreground, making full use of the large 6.44-inch display. For instance, a user can watch a video using the top half of the screen while replying to messages in the lower half.

Mi Max 2 is powered by a massive 5300mAh two-day battery, which provides up to 18 hours of video playback, 21 hours of GPS navigation, or 57 hours of talktime. The huge battery means that Mi Max 2 can even charge other smartphones connected to its USB Type-C port. Despite the large capacity, Mi Max 2 is able to charge 68% in one hour as it supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 with parallel charging, which allows fast charging while controlling temperature increase.

Mi Max 2 is an overall upgrade in terms of design, camera, and specifications. It now features a unibody metal design, a Sony IMX386 1.25-micron large-pixel camera sensor for
better photos. Mi Max 2 comes with 4GB RAM and will ship with 64GB storage for RMB 1699, and 128GB for RMB 1999.
