Xiaomi is allegedly working on a successor model for Xiaomi Mi Max phablet. A leakster from China has revealed some of the leaked specs of the smartphone that is dubbed as Xiaomi Mi Max 2.
Xiaomi Mi Max 2 Leaked Specifications
According to the Chinese leakster, the Mi Max 2 will be coming with a 6.44-inch display. It means that the company will retain the same screen size that is available on the original model.

The Snapdragon 660 chipset on Mi Max 2 is speculated to be coupled with 6 GB of RAM. Its native storage is mentioned as 128 GB by the leakster. Last year’s Mi Max came in two storage models. Hence, it is likely that the company may also announce a 64 GB variant for it.

One of its SIM slots will be capable of supporting either a SIM card or a microSD card at a time. The rear and front-facing camera configurations are also unavailable for the Mi Max 2.
