Today was the last day in which Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun could rehearse for the event happening tomorrow, April 25th, where we’ll have the much rumored Xiaomi Mi 6X finally see the light of day. Along with his presence, various specs and features of the upcoming mid-ranger got confirmed, so here’s a quick recap.
Let’s begin with Xiaomi Mi 6X’s design. The smartphone is set to come with a full metal body along with antenna lines created through a nano injection molding process. The Mi 6X will also be available in five colors: cherry powder, red flame, sand gold, glacier blue and meteorite black.
The Xiaomi Mi 6X is going to sport a 5.99-inch display with Full HD+ (2160 × 1080) resolution, meanwhile under the hood we’ll find a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core CPU based on 14nm FinFET technology, along with an Adreno 512 GPU. Xiaomi’s handset is also set to pack up to 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. Battery capacity will be slightly disappointing at just 2910mAh.
In the camera department, the Xiaomi Mi 6X will be boasting a dual camera setup consisting in 12MP plus 20MP image sensors, we can’t say yet which of the two will be the primary one though. The phone will also sport AI, just like the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S, to recognize a subject and do some changes to improve the image overall. Finally, we’ll have a 20MP front camera for high res selfies along with Beauty AI to smoothen your skin and more.
The Xiaomi Mi 6X is expected to cost 1500 Yuan (around $237) for the cheaper variant and up to 2000 Yuan ($317) for the all-in specced out model. A quite interesting pricing considering how much phones with similar hardware usually cost (Elephone U Pro anyone?)
