Xiaomi Mi 6 is the company's next big release after it unveiled Xiaomi Mi5c at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in February this year, and unarguably it's a keeper. Here's how it fares against the competition. The Xiaomi Mi 6 will be up for grabs from April 28 in China, and it will be accessible through Mi.com, Mi Home stores and some of Xiaomi's retail accomplices. There's also the fact this phone may not reach Europe or the U.S. anytime soon as main target markets are India and China.
The phone will come in blue, white, silver, and black and will cost $360 for the 64GB model and $435 for 128GB. There's also a Ceramic variant of the Mi 6, which costs a little extra. The standard 6GB/64GB model is priced at CNY 2499 (approx Rs 23500) and the 6GB/128GB one at CNY 2899 (about Rs 27000). "I'm really excited to join our Mi fans today to introduce Mi 6, which once again defies price expectations, and I'm looking forward to unveiling even more fantastic products in the year to come". It is equipped with a 5.15-inch display while the OnePlus 3T features a 5.5-inch display and the Honor 8 sits between the two with a 5.2-inch display.
PC Advisor suspected that Xiaomi Mi6 screen remains full-HD, though they are trying to confirm whether it was upgraded to Quad-HD resolution. Anybody expecting the Mi Mix's practically add up to absence of bezels will be disappointed, in any case.
The Mi6 features a curved glass back and metal frame design.
Hopefully the certification is an indicator of an impending announcement, and we'll be sure to keep you informed on Mi 6 Plus' eventual unveiling. Additionally, the Snapdragon 835 SoC is reserved for the worldwide markets.
Xiaomi has gone all guns blazing with Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 chipset. The processor inside is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835, which Samsung's Galaxy S8 holds as a timed exclusive.
The 64GB version of the Mi 6 will be sold at RMB 2,499 and not 2,199 as we were hoping.
The Mi 6 sports 12 MP primary camera with 8 MP secondary camera. The 12-megapixel rear camera uses a wide-angle lens and telephoto lens to offer depth of field tricks. The smartphone bears a 16-megapixel shooter on the front. It remains to be seen whether the camera will take pictures as well as the iPhone or the S8, but on paper it's quite impressive.
Now, on top of all that, a 4,500mAh battery had also been mentioned in various rumors thus far, and fast charging will also be included in the package.
One downside to the Xiaomi Mi 6 is that it is NOT running the latest version of Android. You will find the speaker grille and the microphone grille at the bottom along with the USB Type-C port.
There's no question that the Mi 6 has the might to compete with other top-level smartphones, at least on paper. For connectivity, the Xiaomi Mi 6 supports 4G+ networks with download speed of up to 600Mbps and up to 100Mbps upload speed.
It has an under-glass Fingerprint sensor at the front. Both phones run Android Nougat OS with their respective user interface skins atop.
Another noteworthy feature of the Xiaomi Mi6 is its powerful camera, that will remind you of iPhone 7. It's the successor to last year's Mi 5 and packs in a lot of heat for not a lot of cash.
