Last month, China’s biggest mobile phone player launched its second generation Mix Max phone - the Xiaomi Mi Max 2. This phone is the successor of the Xiaomi Mi Max, a phone which had received rave reviews from the public. At that time, the device only came with one color option which is the gold variant. It was quite disappointing for many customers, especially those who prefer a different shade to their Xiaomi phone. The gold variant wasn’t really everyone’s favorite flavor, thus affected the phone’s appeal to consumers.
There were rumors circulating on the web regarding Xiaomi launching the Mi 6 Plus alongside the Mi 6 but that didn’t happen. Not to mention, leaks associated with the Mi 6 Plus waned after the Mi 6’s release in April. Fortunately, these leaks have surfaced again online, giving Xiaomi fans hope of a launch soon.
