The choice of the Snapdragon 625 CPU may leave some people a bit disappointed, since the first one had a more powerful Snapdragon 650/652. But when you think about how power-efficient it is, then you’ll probably figure that it actually makes more sense.

There’s also 4GB of RAM, and 64GB/128GB options for internal storage. In terms of imaging, the Mi Max 2 has a 12MP rear camera minus the telecam lens that is found on the Mi 6.

One of the key areas that the Mi Max 2 shines in, is the battery. Specifically, a massive 5,300mAh battery which comes with Quick Charge 3.0 capability. This allows you to charge the battery to 2/3 of its maximum capacity in just an hour.
