After numerous rumors and anticipation, Xiaomi has officially unveiled the Mi 6 in China. The smartphone, as rumored, comes with top-of-the-line specs with additional focus on the phone’s design too. The Xiaomi Mi 6 comes with Snapdragon 835 and dual cameras at the back.
The 5.15-inch 1080p display of the phone is wrapped with a curved glass on the front and back framed with a stainless metal polished with care and precession — Xiaomi claims that it took 12 days and 40 processes to achieve the polished look. The company also showcased its phone with ceramic back and 18K gold rims, similar to the Mi Mix. There’s also a fingerprint scanner embedded into the glass home button at front.
The phone consists dual camera setup flushed onto the back of the phone providing an appealing look. The dual camera setup of the phone boasts two 12MP cameras — the first one being a wide angle lens, while the second one tends to be a telephoto lens, similar to iPhone 7 Plus. The dual camera setup of the phone also comes with 4-axis optical stabilization, which can be useful for steady shots.
As for the specs, the Mi 6 is one of the few phones to carry Snapdragon 835 chipset, period. The powerful chipset of the phone is backed up by 6GB of RAM, with either 64 or 128GB of internal storage. Unfortunately, Xiaomi is brave enough to ditch the headphone jack in favor of a stereo speaker, meaning there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack present on the phone.
The phone is powered by a 3350mAh battery inside and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat on top of Xiaomi’s MIUI 8.0. The phone will go on sale from 24th of April carrying a price tag of $360 for the 64GB variant, $420 for 128GB and $435 for the exclusive ceramic variant. The company, however, hasn’t mentioned anything about its availability.
