Xiaomi Mi 6 visits GFXBench, revealing 12MP dual camera setup on back
Xiaomi is supposed to unveil the Xiaomi Mi 6 tomorrow. On the eve of the flagship's appearance, the device was benchmarked by GFXBench. According to the site, the Mi 6 will feature a 5.1-inch display carrying a 1080 x 1920 (FHD) resolution. The Snapdragon 835 chipset is under the hood with an octa-core CPU, and the Adreno 640 GPU. Apparently, consumers will have the option of purchasing the phone with 4GB RAM/64GB of storage or 6GB RAM/128GB of native storage.

While previous speculation had Xiaomi putting a 19MP shooter on back, the GFXBench test shows that there will be a 12MP dual-camera setup on the rear of the phone. In front, an 8MP camera will be at the ready for those snapping selfies. Android 7.1.1 will be pre-installed. While not mentioned in the GFXBench results, a 3200mAh battery is expected to keep the hamster wheel spinning, and the handset will sport a fingerprint scanner.

The listing of the dual-camera setup on back dovetails with a leaked photo we passed along to you yesterday. The picture revealed that there are two cutouts for the dual cameras on the Mi 6's rear cover. In addition, a teaser that Xiaomi recently released also mentions that the Mi 6 has been upgraded to include the two rear snappers.

Previous leaks suggest that the Xiaomi Mi 6 will be priced at the equivalent of $290 USD. We should know more tomorrow when the phone is officially introduced by Xiaomi. Check in with us often for the latest.

A typo - gpu listed as "Adreno 640". I'd be blown away if that was really true.

SD835 supports up to 16MP dual cameras, 32MP single. A sensor used on typical pro grade dedicated cameras can have pretty low pixel count, such as 16MP, 24MP. Still it measures over 20 times the size of the sensors used on current smartphones. ok, that's just me...

They differentiate their models by underclocking the cheaper ones seen here again which is so cruel. Such monopoly xiaomi.
