Just a few days after the Mi 6 was found lurking on GFXBench, the Mi Max 2 may have also gotten spotted on the benchmarking site. The handset appears to have shown up under the name Xiaomi Oxygen.
The Xiaomi Oxygen has a 6.4-inch 1080p screen, the same size and resolution as the Mi Max. This makes it a very strong candidate for the title of the latter’s sequel. It seems to be carrying a 2.2GHz octa-core Snapdragon Cortex A53 (ARMv8) processor with an Adreno 506 GPU to keep it company.
A previous rumor had alleged that the Mi Max 2 would carry a Snapdragon 660 SoC. However, the above configuration also falls in line with the Snapdragon 626 CPU. It should be noted that the original phablet ran on a Snapdragon 650 or Snapdragon 652 chipset, depending on the configuration chosen.

In terms of memory specifications, the Xiaomi device may possess 4GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM. It could come with Android 7.1.1 Nougat layered over with MIUI. A 12MP camera might be situated at the back, capable of 4K video recording, autofocus, face detection, and flash. A 5MP shooter takes care of selfies on the flip side.
Connectivity options may include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC and GPS. Speculation till date has predicted that the Mi Max 2 will get a bigger 5000mAh battery, 6GB of RAM, and look just like its predecessor. The brand is rumored to be implementing an integrated metal process instead of a 3-stage one this time round.
