Xiaomi Mi Max 2 with 5300 mAh battery launching in India on July 18

There had been rumors of Xiaomi Mi Max 2 launching in India in late July, however, it seems the company has preponed the launch of its phablet and has started sending out press invites to the media for the launch of the Mi Max 2 scheduled on July 18.


Xiaomi has sent out press invites to the media which says “Big Is Back“. Although the invite doesn’t mention anything about the device that will be launched on July 18 in India, recent teasers shared on Xiaomi’s social media channels do suggest that Mi Max 2 is indeed the device which will be launched on July 18. Moreover, the Mi Max 2 is the biggest device in Xiaomi’s portfolio, hence, this pretty much confirms that Mi Max 2 is launching in India next week, unless Xiaomi has some other big device planned for Indians which is very unlikely.
