The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 phablet was officially unveiled in China back in May, and now a 32GB model of the device is about to hit India, the company confirmed. The phone released in China with 4GB of RAM and was offered in variants with 64GB and 128GB of internal flash memory, before availability spread to further markets, and the 64GB option was introduced to India in July priced at Rs. 16,999 ($264). The model with 4GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage will be up for grabs from Mi stores, Mi Home, and Amazon India from Wednesday noon local time and will have a regular price of Rs. 14,999 ($233). An introductory price of Rs. 12,999 ($202) will be attached to the device on launch, although it's not clear how long this price will last.
Specifications of the Mi Max 2 include a 2GHz Snapdragon 625 SoC paired with the Adreno 506 GPU for graphics processing, and the phone ships with a 6.44-inch display with a fullHD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080. Like the other variants, the storage of the 32GB model can be expanded via a micro SD card, and a 5,300mAh battery is also part of the package to keep the lights on. Camera-wise, it has a 12-megapixel camera at the rear and a 5-megapixel front-facing unit with an 85-degree lens, while its connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth, and GPS.
