Rumours have been swirling around the upcoming Mi 6X handset since the beginning of this year. Now, an alleged retail box of the handset has surfaced online. This alleged retail box of the Xiaomi Mi 6X has revealed a few key specifications and features of the upcoming handset.
Spotted by folks at Slashleaks, the Xiaomi Mi 6X box reveals a more powerful Kyro Snapdragon 660 processor under the hood, as opposed to earlier leaks which indicated a Snapdragon 626 octa-core processor.
Elsewhere, the box suggests the handset will come with a USB-Type C port, implying the handset won’t feature a dedicated 3.5mm port for audio. Other specifications revealed by the box include a 20MP+8MP dual-lens setup on the back.
