The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is probably the best smartphone if you’re looking for a large smartphone with a huge battery. With its even larger 5,300mAh battery and a frugal Snapdragon 625 processor, Xiaomi says you can easily last 2 days on a single charge. It was launched about two weeks ago and now you can get your hands on one in Malaysia.

As usual, DirectD has started offering imported units of the Mi Max 2 in Malaysia with a retail price of RM1,499. This is for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage version which comes only in Gold. Since it is an early import set, it is priced higher than its official China pricing which is going for 1,699CNY (about RM1,057) for the same 64GB model or 1,999CNY (about RM1,243) for the 128GB storage variant.

To recap on the specs, the Mi Max 2 gets a 6.44″ Full HD display and it is powered by a 14nm Snapdragon 625 Octa-Core processor that’s also powering the Redmi Note 4. In terms of build, it gets a more refined unibody metal design with curved antenna lines that looks inspired by the iPhone 7.

For better video enjoyment, the Mi Max 2 now gets stereo speakers that utilises both earpiece and down-firing loud speaker. It also retains a headphone jack and it now charges via USB Type-C. The Mi Max 2 also supports QuickCharge 3.0 and you can charge 68% of its 5,300mAh battery in just one hour.

In terms of optics, it gets a 12MP f/2.2 Sony IMX386 main camera with PDAF and dual-tone LED flash, while the front sports a 5MP f/2.0 selfie shooter. The Mi Max 2 can shoot 4K videos and 720p slow-mo videos at 120fps. It’s also a dual-SIM device that uses a hybrid SIM design accepting either two SIM-cards or one SIM + microSD.

If you’re interested, head on over to DirectD.

RM1.5k? What have you been smoking son?


    its Mi not Redmi get your perspective right 🙂


      Does it matter Mi or Redmi? That is still overpriced as DirectD is taking an advantage out of it. Such phone will never reach Malaysia at least another 4 to 5 months time and DirectD is importing in the moment the phone launches.


        Yes, dd taking advantage. I bet if you market it in Malaysia, you will sell it cheap as you want ….which is like never..


DD have their right to set the price. they always fast to bring in latest model to malaysia. if think their price is high, can get it at 1299, Jalan 11. Mi and Redmi does matter. just like lexus and toyota. either to wait malaysia launch or fly to china to get oneif u think grey importer price high.

It is NEVER worth it for early adopters to buy from Grey importers. In overseas, all early adopters need to do is to brave long lines.

But in MY you have to burn a hole in your pocket just for braging rights.

Better to waita bit longer. Economy not good so spend wisely.

Too bad it is not equipped with the rumored snapdragon 660, instead xiaomi slapped in snapdragon 625 which kind of a bummer for gaming. But it is a good thing that they include dual stereo speakers which is a rarity this days. My opinion, the first mi max is still good than mi max 2, and theres no need for an upgrade. Camera quality is upgraded a lot and u just cant go wrong with it. Battery wise, is guess it is just too much battery for that chipset tho, just a minority of people would use up to 3 days of battery life and 11+ hours of screen on time. Mi max 1 battery is still excellent all the way.


    +1 proud owner of mi max 1
    i prefer body casing design of the max 1


Great traveling gadget if u wan a mini pad that can put inside a pocket. Rm1499 too steep, wait 200 cheaper when others importer also available.
