The Mi 6X will be launched by Xiaomi on April 25 in China, but the company had been teasing the phone since the past few weeks. It has already revealed the design of the phone along with all the colour variants that will be on offer. The Mi 6X also stopped by TENAA for its certification process, thereby revealing most of its important hardware specifications. Now the pricing of the Xiaomi Mi 6X has been leaked ahead of its official launch event.
Xiaomi Mi 6X: Price, Launch Date
The Xiaomi Mi 6X price will be CNY 1,799 (approximately, Rs. 18,920) for the variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. The price of the Mi 6X with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage is CNY 1,999 (approximately, Rs. 21,000). Pricing of the Mi 6X variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage hasn’t been revealed yet.
The Mi 6X will be launched in China on April 25, 2018. It could be launched in India as the Mi A2, and we say this because Xiaomi had launched the Mi 5X in India as the Mi A1 (review). The only difference between the two was software. The Mi 5X runs MIUI, while the Mi A1 runs stock Android user interface, and is Android One program certified.
Xiaomi Mi 6X: Features, Specifications
The Xiaomi Mi 6X features a 5.99-inch IPS LCD screen with Full HD+ resolution (1080×2160 pixels), 18:9 aspect ratio, and minimal bezels around the display. This is quite similar to the screen used in the Redmi Note 5 and the Redmi Note 5 Pro. It uses a metal build, measuring 158.88×75.54×7.3mm. In terms of camera, the Mi 6X will have a dual-camera setup at its rear, consisting of a 12-megapixel Sony IMX486 primary sensor (ƒ/1.8 aperture) with phase-detection autofocus and a 20MP Sony IMX376 secondary sensor (ƒ/2.2 aperture). There’s a dual-tone LED flash between the two camera sensors. It can also record 4K videos, similar to what the Mi 5X was capable of. At the front, there is a 20MP selfie camera which can also record 1080p videos.
The Mi 6X runs Android 8.1 Oreo-based MIUI interface, and is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor. The chipset uses eight Kryo 260 CPU cores and Adreno 512 GPU, making it much faster than the Redmi Note 5, Redmi Note 5 Pro, and the Mi 5X (and the Mi A1). It will come in various memory configurations: 4GB RAM+32GB storage, 4GB RAM+64GB storage, 6GB RAM+64GB storage, and 6GB RAM+128GB storage. There will be a microSD card slot for storage expansion. If the microSD card slot isn’t being used, it can be used for secondary SIM card. Connectivity wise, it will feature A-GPS, GLONASS, 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 5.0, IR port, USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone port. The phone will come packed with a 2910mAh battery with support for Quick Charge.
