Xiaomi Mi 6X is introduced; mid-ranger features AI cameras, SD-660

Xiaomi Mi 6X is introduced; mid-ranger features upgraded cameras, SD-660
Earlier this month, we told you that Xiaomi was holding an event on April 25th to unveil the Xiaomi Mi 6X. Today is the 25th of the month, and sure enough the Mi 6X is now reality. The same handset will most likely be marketed in many markets as the Mi A2, an Android One model that follows last year's Mi A1 Android One model. The latter was based on the Xiaomi Mi 5X.

Browsing through the specs of the Mi 6X, we happily note that instead of the rumored Snapdragon 626 chipset mobile platform, the phone carries the Snapdragon 660 SoC. The latter features an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 512 GPU. The 5.99-inch LCD display offers a 1080 x 2160 FHD+ resolution, which works out to an 18:9 aspect ratio. There are three variants of the phone; one model comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB of native storage, another has 6GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage, and the third features 6GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage. And those seeking additional storage can turn to the microSD slot that is onboard.

As far as the cameras are concerned, just think 20. The two sensors on the back of the phone both weigh in at 20MP (each sporting an aperture of f/1.75), and there is a 20MP front-facing selfie snapper. Similar to the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, the cameras use AI to analyze the subject, the scene and the lighting conditions to optimize a photo. Bluetooth 5.0 is included, and keeping the lights on is a 3010mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0. MIUI 9.5 runs on top of Android 8.1.

The Xiaomi Mi 6X does not come with a 3.5mm headphone jack, but it does have a Face Unlock feature. It will be offered in Black, Gold, Rose Gold, Blue, and Red. The 4GB RAM/64GB storage model will be priced at 1599 Chinese Yuan (equivalent to $253 USD at current rates). The unit with 6GB RAM/64GB storage will cost 1,799 Chinese Yuan ($285 USD), and the 6GB RAM/128GB version will be tagged at 1,999 Chinese Yuan ($316 USD).
