Xiaomi, just recently, unveiled the Mi Max 2 handset that is widely known as the successor to last year’s Mi Max phablet.
As it turned out, the handset was initially released in a Gold color variant, but now, the company is offering the device in a new Matte Black option as well.
Going by reports, this new color model has been pushed out to the Hong Kong market and brought along the same specifications as the Gold version of the smartphone. The handset is priced at HKD 1,899 and is seen running MIUI 8 based on Android 7.0 Nougat.
Same as its predecessor, the new color edition of the handset packs a big 6.44-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display and is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM.
Talking about optics, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 brings a 12-megapixel rear camera with PDAF support and dual-LED flash.
It has a rear camera configuration that consists of a Sony IMX386 sensor with 1.25-micron pixels for a better effect in different lighting situations. At the front area, it sports a 5-megapixel camera for taking quality selfies.
Interestingly, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 was seen in two storage models, such as 64GB and 128GB storage capacities. However, this new Matte Black option was only rolled out with 64GB of internal storage.
The handset is fitted with a large 5300mAh battery, that has support for Quick Charge 3.0, and also packs connectivity options including 4G connectivity, Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth.
It also comes bearing a fingerprint scanner and sports an IR blaster, which can act as a universal remote for TV and air conditioner.
