Xiaomi Mi 6X shown off in hands-on images ahead of announcement


Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi 6X mid-ranger has leaked out both new hands-on images and a video. The Chinese company’s next device is currently set to be announced tomorrow in China and thanks to a number of new leaks, the final design, and certain specs, have been confirmed once again.

As can be seen in both the video and images, the front panel of the device sports a large 6-inch, 18:9 display that avoids the introduction of a notch by retaining relatively thick top and bottom bezels. Moving on to the rear, an aluminum construction is present, meaning wireless charging will not be supported. Furthermore, a circular fingerprint scanner can be seen slightly above the center of the panel, while an iPhone-like camera setup is present in the top-left corner of the panel. This setup is rumored to include a main 20-megapixel sensor alongside a secondary 20-megapixel lens that should help achieve bokeh effects. Speaking of the cameras, up front the Mi 6X will also feature a third 20-megapixel sensor. In addition to all of this, the new smartphone will make use of AI in order to achieve better image results.

In regards to internal specifications, the live images once again confirm the inclusion of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 inside the Xiaomi Mi 6X. Alongside this, previous rumors have pointed towards 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Xiaomi may also release a 4GB of RAM variant with the options of either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, however. On a software note, Android 8.1 Oreo is expected to ship straight out of the box with Xiaomi’s MIUI 9 overlay on top.

Xiaomi is yet to confirm the pricing of the upcoming Mi 6X, but if previous devices are anything to go by, the new smartphone should retail around the $200 mark. Now, it’s worth noting that the Xiaomi Mi 6X is expected to remain exclusive to a number of Asian markets and will be available in both black and gold colors. But, just like last year’s Mi 5X, this year's Mi 6X will reportedly see a launch in a number of other markets such as Europe and the US under the Xiaomi Mi A2 branding later on in the year as part of the Android One program.

In leaks,its mentioned 2910 mah.it should have atleast 3200mah.Oreo update was a buggy update.Its Xiaomi who decides when to push updates,not Google.So not a pure Android One device.

Best value for money phone. Where else can you find a 660 on a $200 phone? I'll wait for reviews for the battery as that seems like the only con for now

I feel sorry for Apple .. they did their best to come up with a different phone, but now maybe 80% of the phones in 2018 looks like their iPhone X.

Xiaomi is being more like Apple than Apple itself by not choosing a notch. Steve's philosophy and concentration on symmetry/simplicity would not have allowed such a gimmicky half way house solution such as the notch. I can see him stubbornly saying that if the bezel needs to be there, then it should be there in its full splendor. We can get rid of it once the technology gets to the point of eliminating it entirely. "In the meantime, let the Android OEMs do the dumb stuff."

I don't get the obsession of all these chinese phone makers about left corner standing camera.
