Xiaomi Mi 6X is introduced; mid-ranger features AI 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).

No NFC,No headphone jack,No Dual sim card slot with SD card but only Hybrid sim card slot with SD card slot and small battery 3010 mah compare to Nokia 7+.Why cant all these chinese companies provide all these basic stuff in a midrange phones they shouldn't skip on it.nokia,sony,motorola provide all these basic things in their midrange smartphones where nothing is missing it's there all rounder smartphones but only cost is high but nokia is doing right in global market with their devices specs,prices on all their range.Stop following Apple move not cool at all just like iphone 7,8 with small battery compare to 7+,8+ and no 3D Touch,headphone jack on iphone SE 2 and no true tone display on this year ipad compare to ipad 10.5inch.I hope next year they don't do this with us anymore,They need to taught a lesson this time around.

Please dude. Look at the Mi A2 price first. I agree on the small battery but aside from that, it's the best budget midrange phone.

Don't worry about battery life.... Considering Mi A1 with 3080mAh it will easily last longer than any of the iPhone in the market. (For you iPhone has the best battery backup...lol)https://www.gsmarena.com/battery-test.php3

I don't care about whether it lasts more than iPhones or not. I game on phones a lot. So definitely need a larger battery. I am not your average guy who uses his phone for just typical stuff such as web browsing, calling, chatting, etc. I am a mobile gamer. And no, I don't entertain any PC master race guys.........

Xiaomi has more sense here than all pack of old dogs. No notch. Simple.

I want to spend $300 And this or the upcoming Nokia x6 which should pack a SD660 should fit the bill.

That's one pretty android one phone! Though I think the Nokia 7 plus is better.

A decent phone around the $300 mark needs to make it to the US! I would be more than happy to spend $300-$400 on ANYTHING with an sd660. We won't even see a SD636 for less than $400, probably not even less than $500 :"(

PhoneArena, both back cameras don't have f/1.75 aperture. Coz one is telephoto.

Second camera is also f/1.75 and it's exactly like OnePlus 5T's second camera including pixel binning.

Waste of money. For a 6 inch phone it should have had a 4000mAh battery.

Hope it has TMobile LTE bands like redmi 5 plus
