Hello Xiaomi Mi6 – No Headphone Jack Confirmed!


xiaomi mi6

If you don’t want to spoil the launch surprise of the Xiaomi Mi6 then avert your eyes now! We have some of the best spy photos of the phone seen so far.

Ok, if you were trying to keep your eyes off Xiaomi Mi6 leaks then you will have had a really tough time. The Mi6 might be Xiaomi’s latest top end smartphone, but it’s also the world’s worst kept secret! We’ve seen leaks of this thing for months now!

That said these latest leaked photos of the Xiaomi Mi6 do give us the best look at the new phone so far, and they also get up close so that we can see some of the finer details of the new handset.

As with previously seen photos of the Xiaomi Mi6, this spy shot also shows the Xiaomi Mi6 with a 2.5D curved edge-to-edge display rather than a full curved panel seen on Samsung phones and the Mi Note 2. There are suggests around the web that this photo shows the entry-level flagship phone and that a more expensive handset will get a full curved panel, however no leaks have backed this up.

We can also see from the images that the rear of the Xiaomi Mi6 looks to have an extremely curved shape that is more organic than previous designs and should equal a more comfortable to use and premium-feeling device.

The images also seem to show a ceramic finish to the rear of the Xiaomi Mi6, confirming another rumour about the phone, and of course, we see that the handset does still have those dual rear cameras and dual tone LED flash.

From the edges of the phone we see that the base of the Xiaomi Mi6 has a USB Type C, and grills for the speaker and receiver, but nowhere on the handset is there a 3.5mm headphone jack! This would confirm other rumours, and also put a lot of potential customers off from buying the new phone.

The dark images of the Xiaomi Mi6 make it difficult to see how narrow the bezels will be on the new phone, but we can just make out a mark where a front home button/fingerprint scanner will be located.

    For Xiaomi’s sake I hope not.

    I was hoping that the launch would drive the Mi5 price down, but I guess it might not.

      You can currently find the Mi5 for around $220, it won’t get much cheaper than that for awhile (minus random flash sales). Around mid summer it will be below $200.

    I seriously doubt they’ll leave the 3.5mm jack off.
    – the phone is not waterproof, so there is no added protection by leaving it off
    – the phone is big enough there is no need to leave it off
    – Leaving it off from the iPhone was not a well received move from Apple, there are jokes going on to this day how much ‘courage’ they have, and Samsung left the 3.5 in it’s place on the S8, so leaving it off did not became a trend (thankfully)
    – Xiaomi sells a sh*tload of headphones – all with 3.5mm jacks. All the Pistons and Hybrids, they even have their own menu in MIUI. It would be a colossal shoot in their own foot.

      Xiaomi and Apple love to copy each other so it is a possibility. In response to your points though:

      – We don’t know if it is or isn’t waterproof yet as nothing has been made official, we will know next week.
      – There are other reasons besides size/waterproof to leave it off. One of them is better audio quality.
      – Apple has had no issues selling the iPhone 7. They laughing all the way to the bank.
      – While Samsung hasn’t adopted it yet, they are actually researching it. Several Android companies have adopted it so it is becoming a trend.
      – Xiaomi would be able to create a whole new line of Pistons and Hybrids, which is more sales for them. Companies have a much higher profit margin on accessories than they do on devices.

          I can name about 100 things that were “new” in iOS that had been used in MIUI for years. Apple copies just as much as any other company.

          the “Joke of the month” is the people who think everything Apple does is original.

            First, I am not apple fan. But I got both Android and iphone (iphone 7+ 256gb) But MIUI was inspired by iOS. No iOS, no MIUI.
            Apple copy Android? Oh yes. Apple copies MIUI? C’mon man, gimme a break. Anyway, have a good day! Peace out!

              MIUI was inspired by iOS, I never said it wasn’t. That hasn’t stopped Apple from copying features of MIUI over the years. Just because Xiaomi was inspired by Apple, doesn’t mean they sit around and wait to copy everything. MIUI is constantly evolving and adding new features. Many of which Apple has copied for new versions of iOS. Android itself has copied features of MIUI (and other popular UIs). You’re just making yourself sound ignorant.

    NO B20 FDD, NO XIAOMI!!! I also care 3,5mm jack plug, but until Xiaomi wont reach US and EU bandwiths of 4G… No thanks. I own a Zuk Z2 without B20 and I love that phone but will never understand why B20 is that SPECIAl or expensive, they leave it out. In 2018 China Unicom will start fully covered 4G+ network with (YES) B20 800Mhz. So I hope Xiaomi awakes and make B20 capable phones. If not, then I hope they go bankrupt.

        Nobody likes waiting. But I have no choice I want an Android phone with at least 6GB RAM 256GB ROM with waterproof. for now, Mi Mix is the only choice. I heard Mi Mix’s display is not that good for outdoor use especially under direct sunlight. Currently I am using iphone 7+ 256Gb. Switched from Mate 9 due to gaming performance sucks.
