Xiaomi has claimed that the phone has 31 days of standby time and 57 hours of talk time. Starting January, the company has launched three Redmi devices - Redmi Note 4 followed by Redmi 4 and Redmi 4A, and another ecosystem product Router 3C.
This is of course helped along by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 under the hood, a SoC known for its power efficiency and reliable performance. To back the chipset, Xiaomi has gone for 4GB of RAM as a standard for the 64GB model in India.
For the captures, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 has a 12-megapixel rear camera with the Sony IMX 386 sensor, F/2.2 aperture and Dual LED flash support. For selfies, there is a 5MP front camera with wide-angle lens.

And even if Cristiano Ronaldo stays, he's 32 and is in need of rotation to keep him fully fit for the key months of the season. Enter noted Real Madrid fan Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The biggest improvement though is the build of the device.
The new phone Mi Max 2 launched today in India. We have only spent a few hours with the device and even though it is a large smartphone, it is by no means hard to hold. Needless to say, the highlight of the phone is the giant screen and an even bigger battery. This probably a no-no for your jean trouser's pocket. The Mi Max 2 has a rear-mounted circular fingerprint scanner and curved 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass (unspecified) on the front with backlit capacitive keys.
The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 features an all-metal body and rounded edges. Watching videos on Netflix and YouTube is about as cinematic as it can get for a smartphone, and the dual-speaker system helps if you aren't using headphones. The Mi Max 2 looks as tall and wide as the predecessor but weighs slightly more at 211g. There's a stereo speaker setup provided, where the earpiece acts as the second speaker in the setup to give you better audio when watching videos or listening to music. Unlike micro USB slots (used in Mi Max Prime), it doesn't have an upper side.
Xiaomi Mi Max 2 runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat with MIUI 8. Some leaks also suggest that the phone may indeed be released in many variants and these will be known only when the official announcement comes.
