The Xiaomi Mi 6 release is just a few days short and the latest rumor to make the rounds, is the inclusion of gesture support on the fingerprint sensor. A few brands have adopted this methodology to get rid of the on screen navigation buttons, like Lenovo in the Z2/ Z2 Plus and Motorola in the Moto G5/ G5 Plus.

The phone is slated to release on the 19th of April. The Mi 6 is rumored to feature a a finger print sensor that works as a home button too with the either side of the button having capacitive back and recent apps buttons.
According to sources, the Mi 6 will sport a Snapdragon 835 with Adreno 540 coupled with 4GB/6GB of RAM and 32/64/128 GB of internal storage. The device is expected to have a 5.15 inch 1080p display whereas the Mi 6 Plus might feature a 5.7 inch display. The recent leaks suggest that the front will host an 8MP ultrapixel camera whereas the back will be equipped with a 20 MP dual camera setup.
