The rumor mill sneaked one last leak of the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 prior to its expected unveiling today, April 19, in the form of rendered images of the highly anticipated device.

New photos out of Weibo reveal a sleek design for the phablet with its classy gold finish and confirm the all-metal chassis that makes for a premium look and a sturdy build. It also appears to be sporting a clear case.

The leaked images also confirmed that the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is not getting a dual-camera setup, but the primary shooter does have a flash with a fingerprint sensor just below it.

Previous reports suggest that this rear-facing camera will be at 12 MP and will come with a Sony IMX378 sensor. On the front will be a 5 MP selfie snapper.

The new Xiaomi Mi Max is also keeping its 3.5 mm headphone jack with the IR blaster, speaker grilles and USB Type-C port to boot.

According to previous reports and leaks, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 will come with a 6.4-inch full high-definition (HD) display and will be powered by different chipsets based on the configuration.

There is a version packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor that comes with 4 GB random-access memory (RAM). In another model, Xiaomi pairs a Snapdragon 660 chipset with 6 GB RAM. Both models will reportedly offer 128 GB storage. Xiaomi is also adding 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) connectivity in there.

The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 promises long hours of usage courtesy of its massive 5,000 mAh battery, which tops its predecessor's 4,850 mAh battery pack.

The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 was rumored to be released next month, but is now expected to arrive today along with the Chinese tech firm's flagship, the Xiaomi Mi 6.
