- The unannounced Xiaomi Mi 6X specs may have been outed in a recent leak.
- The handset is said to pack an FHD+ display, Snapdragon 660 chipset, and dual rear cameras.
- Xiaomi has an event scheduled for April 25 where we may see the phone launched.
The Xiaomi Mi 6X is widely tipped to launch in the coming weeks. A listing on China’s TENAA organisation gave us a taster, but it looks like all the major specs have now been uncovered.
The information comes via XDA-Developers, which got its hands on the device’s firmware files. The Xiaomi Mi 6X looks like a notable power upgrade over its predecessors, the Mi 5X/Mi A1, thanks to a Snapdragon 660 chipset (compared to the predecessor’s Snapdragon 625). The publication also tips the new handset to offer 4GB to 6GB RAM, 32GB to 128GB of storage and an 18:9 display at 2160×1080 resolution.
The photography department also seems like it has received an upgrade, featuring a 12MP and 20MP f/1.8 dual camera combination. By comparison, the Mi A1 offered two 12MP shooters (f/2.2 and f/2.6). The new device won’t have a telephoto lens, but it’s believed to feature a Portait Mode. Look at the front of the phone and you should find a 20MP f/2.2 camera with a flash.
In terms of software, the Xiaomi Mi 6X is anticipated to run Android 8.1 Oreo with MIUI 9. We’d expect the device to run stock Android if it leaves China.
When will it be launched?
As for a release date? Xiaomi has sent out invites for an April 25 event in China, which suggests that we’ll see the device then.
We can probably rule out a new entry in the Mi Mix range, as the Mi Mix 2s has just launched and the main Mi Mix devices tend to be launched in the second half of the year.
