Xiaomi Mi 6 to carry dual-camera set-up on back and feature 6GB of RAM?
The Xiaomi Mi 6 is about to be unveiled this coming Wednesday, and all of the signs point toward the device coming to market with 6GB of RAM instead of 4GB of the sweet stuff. For example, on the recent Geekbench test we told you about last week, the Xiaomi Mi 6 was indeed equipped with 6GB of RAM. In addition, a recent video teaser from Xiaomi has confirmed the upgrades for the phone.
The Mi 6 will offer three upgrades from the company's previous flagship model, the Xiaomi Mi 5. One is the replacement of a single camera system on the back of the phone with a dual-camera setup. The second is the exchange of 4GB of RAM for 6GB on the new model. The third improvement, or upgrade if you will, is unknown for now.
Other reports indicate that the fingerprint scanner is going to be embedded under the front glass, and that the phone will have an IP68 certification rating for dust and water resistance. The 3.5mm earphone jack is said to have been eliminated, and a USB-Type C port is expected to be found on the bottom of the device.
According to the buzz around the water color, Xiaomi wants the Mi 6 to feature the combination of the Snapdragon 835 chipset and 6GB of RAM in order to set a new benchmark for domestic handsets in China. The Xiaomi Mi 6 is expected to be priced at the equivalent of $290 USD. The premium Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus will cost more than the equivalent of $435 USD.
