Xiaomi Mi Max was released back in April and was an instant hit among buyers, due to its super large 6.44-inch display and an equally large battery. The phone comes in a number of variants in China, starting at 3GB RAM with different storage options and going up to 4GB of RAM. However, it looks like Xiaomi may have another variant of the Mi Max in the works, which, considering its specification, should be priced cheaper than the current base variant.
Recently, Xiaomi Mi Max 2GB RAM version was leaked. The screenshot further reveals that there is just 16GB of storage inside. As mentioned above, the cheapest version of the Mi Max being sold right now starts at 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, so we an expect this special low-end variant to cost even lesser than the 3GB RAM model. To remind you, the above variant sells for 1499 Yuan in China which comes to $230. So, the 2GB RAM version should ideally cost around 1299 Yuan ($198).
As for the specs, expect the rest to be the same as the Mi Max 3GB RAM model. So, the phone should feature Snapdragon 650 chip inside with 2GB RAM, 16GB storage and MicroSD expansion slot (hybrid). You should find a large 4850mAh battery inside the slim 7.5mm body. At the back, there should be a 16MP shooter and up front, a 5MP sensor.
However, the Mi Max 2GB RAM model is still not listed on the official Mi.com website for sale. Either it could be released later, or this particular version may not see the light of the day in China. Instead, it could be sold in India, where the company will release the handset on June 30.
Stay tuned for more details.
