One of Xiaomi's biggest tech releases in 2016, both literally and figuratively, is now speculated to get its beefed up version very soon. Reports are indicating that the Chinese smartphone manufacturing giant is planning to release Xiaomi Mi Max 2 over two months from now.

Straight out of China's microblogging site Weibo, the rumor has indicated that Xiaomi will be launching the successor of 2016's Xiaomi Mi Max, Xiaomi Mi Max 2. As cited by GSMArena, the device is scheduled to be announced in May 2017.

The leaked information has also revealed that Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is going to feature a spacious 6.44-inch panel. It is also stated that the upcoming device will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, which is deemed to be an interesting choice by some tech enthusiasts. Meanwhile, the smartphone's chipset is tipped to be supported by a massive 6GB of random access memory (RAM) and 128GB of native storage.

Phone Arena has reported that Xiaomi Mi Max 2 will be sporting the similar aesthetics of its predecessor. While this isn't a significant development for the upcoming unit's design, the decision, if legitimate, would still be welcomed by most as Xiaomi Mi Max was known for its strong build quality. As such, this is one of the smartphone's features that was praised by many tech aficionados at the time of its release. On the other hand, the same news outlet has added that the device is coming with a hefty 5,000mAh battery that should be enough to power these top-of-the-line specifications.

While most of these have not been confirmed by Xiaomi yet, it would be smart to take heed of these with a pinch of salt. But if in the event that these speculations turn out to be true, then all Xiaomi fans would be elated to know that they are definitely in for a treat with Xiaomi Mi Max 2's top-notch specs and affordability.
