Xiaomi Mi 6 is now official; phone will be released on April 28th with SD-835 and 6GB of RAM
The Xiaomi Mi 6 is now official. Introduced by Xiaomi founder and CEO Lei Jun this morning, the eagerly awaited handset features a 5.15-inch display carrying a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. The Snapdragon 835 chipset is under the hood with an octa-core 2.45 GHz CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. The handset will come with 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of native storage. A 3350mAh battery is charged with keeping the lights on. Because the Snapdragon 835 SoC is 25% more efficient than the Snapdragon 820, the Mi 6 should provide users with outstanding battery life.

The dual rear camera setup in back features a 12MP regular camera, and a 12MP telephoto snapper. The second camera provides 2x lossless zoom in order to capture photos taken at a distance. The dual camera setup will also allow users to snap portraits with the background blur that enhances the look of such photos. And to keep shaking hands from ruining videos, the standard camera will be equipped with four-axis optical anti-shake functionality.

While there is no 3.5mm headphone jack, the Mi 6 will feature stereo speakers. Xiaomi is throwing in Qualcomm's Sense ID technology, which means that the handset's fingerprint scanner scans fingerprints in three dimensions, making it harder to bypass. Giving the Mi 6 a premium look is four-sided 3D curved glass. The version of Xiaomi's MIUI based on Android 7.1.1 is pre-installed, and a Type-C USB port is on board.

The Xiaomi Mi 6 will be available in Black, White and Blue with two special editions, Ceramic and Silver. The ceramic edition will feature 18K gold camera rims. The device measures 7.45mm thick, and is splash-resistant.

Pricing starts at the equivalent of $363 USD for the model with 64GB of native storage. The unit packing 128GB of native storage will cost the equivalent of $421 USD, and the Ceramic edition is priced at the equivalent of $436 USD. The Xiaomi Mi 6 will be released on April 28th at Mi.com and and in all 72 Mi Home stores in China. A global release will be announced at a later date.
