Ahead of the launch of the mi Max 2 phablet today, some interesting specs have shown up on the Geekbench database as part of its benchmarks. The huge 6.4-inch device is expected to be unveiled at an event in China.
Geekbench benchmarks usually don’t reveal all the specs but they do give a fair idea about the processors and RAM. Such is the case here. The Mi Max 2 is seen to be sporting a Qualcomm Octa-core processor. The SoC model number is shown to be MSM8953. Now we know very well that this model number belongs to the Snapdragon 625.
So, if the benchmarks have not omitted the last three letters at the end of ‘MSM8953’ it will be SD 625. Otherwise, it might end up to SD 626. Previously, other rumours have pointed out to the Mi Max carrying the SD 626. So that validates the suspicion.
Apart from the SoC, we know from the benchmarks that the Mi Max2 will have 4 GB of RAM. And it will run Android Nougat along with MIUI on top. What is interesting to know that Xiaomi might also take the wraps off MIUI 9 at the event as we recall the Mi Max was also the first to be created with MIUI 8 last year. But this is an assumption.
Mi Max 2 also appeared on GFXBench recently displaying the 1080p screen 18 GB of usable storage, a 12 MP rear camera as well as a 5 MP front camera.
