Xiaomi has come up with the craziest high-end devices that are priced ridiculously, and the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is the latest to join the lineup. At 6.44 inches, the large device will easily capture anyone's attention.

At first, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 could pass off as the iPhone 7 Plus. As most know, the Apple phablet is quite huge, but some love it because of the wide display it offers. The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 offers a neat alternative for folks who are not too concerned about brand. While the aesthetics may seem similar, the meat of the device could come from within.

Aside from the 6.44-inch full HD display of the Xiaomi Mi Max 2, the mid-range comes with an acceptable range of specs. These include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset ably supported by 4 GB of RAM. As far as internal storage options, potential buyers can choose from either a 64 or 128 GB class.

Other specs of the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 include a 12 MP Sony IMX386 rear camera, which comes with a 1.25-micrometer large pixel sensor. It also comes with a 5 MP front-facing selfie shooter, stereo speakers and a non-removable Li-Ion 5300 mAh battery, which is reportedly good to last for 2 days.

The longevity of the battery for the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 may vary depending on one’s use. Regardless, running out of juice should not be much of a fuss, considering the device comes with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 – something that can charge up the device to 68 percent in just an hour, Slash Gear reports.

The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 also comes with dual-SIM support and Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. Again, it would be best to note that this is a mid-range device, not a high-end device. It looms as a good buy for folks looking for a phablet to view videos, or folks who simply want to take photos on a wider screen.

As mentioned earlier, there are two storage options available for the Xiaomi Mi Max 2. According to the latest update from Mobile 57, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is already out in the Australian market. Pricing is based on local market shops and showrooms provided by main Xiaomi dealers in Australia. These are subject to change, meaning it would be best to ask from local dealers first.
