Last year, Xiaomi unveiled its first-ever smartphone with stock Android UI, the Mi A1, in India. However, it wasn’t a completely new device. The company had released the same phone as the Mi 5X, and it used MIUI. Later, the company launched it as the Mi A1 with stock Android UI. Now, it looks like the Chinese smartphone maker is gearing up for the launch of the successor to the Mi 5X, which could be released as the Mi A2 in India and the US.
Xiaomi’s new smartphone with model number M1804D2SE has been spotted at TENAA, China’s telecom regulatory authority, and it could be called the Xiaomi Mi 6X. Specifications-wise, the device brings some important upgrades and has specifications which are similar to that of the recently launched Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. However, the phone has a smaller battery capacity compared to the one used in the Redmi Note 5.
Xiaomi Mi 6X: Rumored Specifications
Going by the detailed specifications revealed through TENAA’s database, the Mi 6X sports a 5.99-inch IPS LCD screen. There’s no doubt that the screen features Full HD+ resolution (2160×1080 pixels), 18:9 aspect ratio, and minimal bezels. Furthermore, it has a dual rear-facing camera setup with a dual-tone LED flash. All these features are similar to that of the Redmi Note 5 Pro (review). There’s a fingerprint reader placed at the phone’s rear. In terms of dimension, the phone measures 158.88×75.54×7.3mm, but has a smaller battery capacity at 2910mAh.

For now, these are the only details we know. There’s no information regarding its internal hardware such as the processor or storage, but we can expect the Mi 6X to come in 3GB or 4GB RAM variants. It can mark its international debut as the Mi A2, when it launches in India and the US later this year. It will be a true successor to the last year’s Xiaomi Mi A1 smartphone.
Xiaomi Mi 6X: Mi A2 For International Markets?
What we can conclude from the listing, is that the Mi 6X (or Mi A2) is much similar to its predecessor. The only changes which we can see is the screen. Along with the notable hardware changes coming in, this newer generation smartphone might run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box in international markets and with MIUI skin in the Chinese market.
