After series of rumors and leaks, Xiaomi has finally taken the wrap of the new Xiaomi Mi 6X. As claimed by the company, the main highlight of the phone is its dual-camera, which will even outshine the likes of iPhone X and OPPO R15.
Though it’s called Mi 6X in China, the device will globally go on sale as the Mi A2. Which definitely makes it the successor of last year’s beloved Mi A1.
At the rear is what most of the users will look on to while buying this phone. It has a dual-camera setup, out of which, the first one is a 12MP Sony IMX486 with f/1.75 aperture and 1.25 pixel. The second boasts a 20MP Sony IMX376 sensor for capturing better portrait photos and images in dark lighting condition.
According to Xiaomi, the secondary camera will work wonder to produce better low-lighting photos, all thanks to the 4-in-1 pixel binning technology as seen in OnePlus 5T and OPPO R15. The front comprises a similar 20MP Sony IMX376 selfie snapper.
Moreover, Xiaomi hasn’t missed out on the on-going AI trend. The dual-camera is capable of detecting 200 scenes including 12 different portrait modes. The AI enhancement is also expected to provide better blurring for even hats.
Internally, the phone is no slouch either. The Xiaomi Mi 6X has Snapdragon 660 chipset clocked at 2.2GHz and Adreno 512 GPU. The device will come in three memory variants, including 4/64GB, 6/64GB, and 6/128GB — all expandable through a microSD card. At the front, there’s a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display.
The whole phone will boot on Android 8.1 Oreo with MIUI 9.5 on top. Powering it will be a 3,010mAh battery with QuickCharge 3.0 support.
The Xiaomi Mi 6X will go on sale with a price tag of $250. Although there’s no word about the availability of the phone outside China, we expect the Mi 6X (or Mi A2) to arrive in Nepal within a month or two with a price tag of around Rs. 30,000.
