Xiaomi has a couple of flagships in its digital series. However, among all its flagships in the digital series, the Xiaomi Mi 6 appears to be the most classic. The Mi 6 is Xiaomi’s last small-screen smartphone with a 5.15-inch display. As a classic product of Xiaomi’s digital series, Xiaomi Mi 6 has been attracting a large number of loyal users since its launch. According to reports from second-hand trading platforms like Xianyu, the second-hand price of Xiaomi Mi 6 is more valuable than Xiaomi Mi 8. Recall that while the Mi 6 was released in 2017, the Xiaomi Mi 8 was released a year later.
On the Xianyu platform, the second-hand price of Mi 6 exceeds 600 yuan ($93). However, the price of the Mi 8 is less than 600 yuan ($93). The release time difference between the two is more than one year. PS: Mi 6 was released in April 2017, while Mi 8 was released in May 2018.
Although the Mi 6 is over four years old, Lei Jun recently announced that it still has over 2 million active users. This has been sparking speculations that Xiaomi will release a Mi 6 look-alike.
In addition to the small 5.15-inch display with a resolution of 1920 × 1080, the Mi 6 also comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. At the time of its launch, this chip was the strongest. This smartphone also uses a 12MP camera as well as a 3350 mAh battery.
