Xiaomi today introduced the next iteration of its eye-popping phablet smartphone. Called the Mi Max 2, the smartphone retains the display qualities of its predecessor from the year before and receives subtle upgrades under the hood. From a more coherent design language to a bigger battery, here are the top five features of the Xiaomi Mi Max 2. Also Read - Good news for iPhone loves!

Design

To begin with, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 has now been improved in terms of outer appearance. Instead of the boxy feel of the predecessor, the Mi Max 2 features a U-Type antenna design that blends the lines on the edges, keeping the rear panel neat. Overall, the design language has been given a soft touch thanks to the rounded edges. While it makes one-handed operation of the mammoth smartphone with a 6.4-inch display slightly convenient, by the looks of it, the smoother edges could also make the smartphone vulnerable to accidental drops.

While the rest of the design elements have been kept intact, such as the rear fingerprint sensor and the camera positioning, there are certain enhancements on the software front which make the Mi Max 2 stand out. Xiaomi s custom MIUI skin adds a One-handed mode to the smartphone; it is a feature that makes the usable display smaller, thereby making it easier for users to navigate using just one hand. There is also a split screen mode which allows for convenient multi-tasking. Given the outrageous size of the display, these subtle tweaks stand for an improvement over the predecessor.

Performance

What good is an upgrade if it doesn t house a better processor? The Mi Max 2 is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC which is fabricated using a 14nm FinFET technology. The octa-core processor is clocked at 2.0GHz and paired with 4GB of RAM. It is available in storage choices of 64GB (RMB 1,699, Rs 16,000 approximately), and 128GB (RMB 1,999, Rs 19,000 approximately). There is also an option to further boost the storage to 128GB via microSD card. The Snapdragon 625 SoC was released in 2016 and already powers a range of smartphones in the affordable segment including the Xiaomi s own Redmi Note 4, Moto Z Play, Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom, and Samsung Galaxy S7 among others.

Camera

One of the most important upgrades is the camera on the Mi Max 2. To recall, the Mi Max features a 16-megapixel rear camera. For the successor, Xiaomi has opted for a 12-megapixel Sony IMX386 1.25-micron large-pixel camera with auto-focus, LED flash, PDAF support, and HDR. Don t let the megapixel count confuse you. In our review of the Mi Max we highlighted how the camera output was average in nature. There is also a 5-megapixel front camera with 85-degree wide angle lens and Beautify feature for enhanced selfies. With the Sony sensor, even at a lower megapixel count, the quality of output is enhanced. Some of the camera samples are below. While it is yet to be seen how the camera on the smartphone performs in the hands of a casual user, these samples do suggest a rather enhanced output even in low light environments.

Battery

Making it worthy of the upgrade label is the battery capacity in the Mi Max 2. The predecessor features a 4,850mAh battery. The Mi Max 2 houses a massive 5,300mAh battery that is supported with Quick Charge 3.0 and parallel charging. It is claimed to take the power levels up to 68 percent in just an hour of charging, all while controlling the temperature increase. Given that it is a big display smartphone, the enormous battery beneath is justified. Xiaomi claims that the battery can survive for almost two days.

Stereo speakers

Another upgrade is in the form of stereo speakers. Being a big display smartphone, there is all likelihood of users watching more of videos or playing games. The Mi Max 2 features stereo speakers which are automatically activated in landscape orientation for a more enhanced video or gaming experience. The Mi Max, in this case, lacked the technology.
