Xiaomi recently announced the availability of gorgeous looking Mi 6 in China for starting price of RMB 2,499 and comes with the mighty Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. It is expected that India will see Mi 6 releasing by end of the next month.
After a period of rigorous growth, the company faced a slump last year. This is why the success of this flagship is all the more important for it. Do the specs and features provide the smartphone with enough to help the company through it? Let’s find out.
Mi 6 has four-sided 3D curved glass and a stainless steel frame. It is available in three colors (Black, White, and Blue) as well as two special editions: Ceramic and Silver. The phone dimensions are 145.17 x 70.49 x 7.45mm.
The biggest shock here comes in form of a missing 3.5mm audio jack. Most users wouldn’t have thought of this when there were rumors of the Mi 6 being similar to the iPhone 7. The display is 5.5-inch, and the rear camera does a standard dual 12MP. Even the rear camera has some similarities with the iPhone 7. There is a mix of wide-angle and telephoto lens, with 10x digital zoom and 2x lossless zoom and optical image stabilization.
For good security, there is a glass fingerprint sensor at the front bottom. The RAM has been bumped up to 6GB. The device is powered by the latest processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC.
