This could be our first look at the Xiaomi Mi 6!
The Xiaomi Mi 6 is about to become matter of fact in a few days – April 19, we're told! It's about time some credible-looking photos of the upcoming phone showed up, as all we had up to this point was our imagination and concept renders. What we're showing here may or may not be the Mi 6, and may or may not be computer-generated – it's getting hard to spot a fake these days! However, what we're seeing somewhat looks the part.

At first, we thought someone's peddling us shots of the OnePlus 3T, but there's no question that this is a different phone. It's just that the Home button looks nothing like it did on the Mi 5 or other Xiaomi handsets, but such details are always subject to change. Moreover, the back panel sure looks like something Xiaomi could come up with, reminding us of the Mi 5's canted sides and matte black finish.

Furthermore, the dual camera we're seeing matches many of the leaked specs we've had of the Mi 6, and the bottom side is quite typical of Xiaomi - oblique shape, four speaker holes on each side, USB C port in the middle.

Chances are this could be the real deal, but honestly, the front panel looks too much like a Meizu or OnePlus phone for us to be fully convinced. Regardless, April 19 is in five days, we'll get a pretty good look at the Mi 6 at its official announcement. This will be a powerful phone, available in three variants targeting different price points. The entry level model is said to be running the MediaTek Helio X30 chip, while the other two are supposedly Snapdragon 835 devices.

This phone's good. But a 256gb variant will help to make a decision.

Looks like they dropped the headphone jack. No wonder people call this company as a apple ripoff. They are doing the ripoff so much so that they too have the courage to remove the headphone jack for no reason.

How can the same oem that produced the gorgeous mi mix release this dud of a design? This is so generic looking. Also not a fan of round back phones.

it looks kind a...plastic!? Anyway...It' price, plus shipping costs, reseller margin, and VAT = NOT WORTH IT, since you are getting device without service support and warranty.

I don't think that's it. Looks pretty bad. Maybe the Nokia 8?

Fake. Since it's fake Apple still sucks. Thankfully, I don't care. If Apple ripoff isn't enough I got better name to say. Let's just say a photocopier.

This Mi6 design is dud and unimpressive. I hope this is just a concept and not the real thing.
