The rumours about Mi 5X refresh is not a new one, but Xiaomi has now finally revealed that they are preparing to launch the Mi 6X at a special event in China on April 25. In addition, the company’s first teaser image provides a glimpse of the handset in brand new blue colour.
As you can notice, the teaser image is also hinting us that its packing 20MP front and rear-facing cameras. The vertical dual camera setup approach is the same as can be found on the recently launched Redmi Note 5 Pro smartphone (which makes use of primary sensor and depth sensor around the back).
Other rumored specs include 5.99″ FHD+ display in 18:9 aspect ratio, Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, 20MP (F2.0) + 8MP (F1.8) dual sensors, 20MP (F2.2) Front shooter, and 3000mAh battery. The Mi 6X is presumed to run Android 8.1 Oreo with MIUI 9 out-of-the-box. We’d expect the device to run stock Android 8.1 Oreo if it launches outside of China. As you already know, Xiaomi launched Mi 5X as a Mi A1 (Android One) in many countries (Except China) including India.
Another possibility is that the company is rumoured to launch Mi Band 3 fitness tracker alongside Mi 6X, as the company CEO Lei Jun spotted wearing the next-gen Mi Band at Black Shark gaming phone launch. But like I said before, this is just speculation for now, though it does seem like the right time for Xiaomi to introduce new fitness and home products.
Xiaomi has unveiled a number of new products already this year, as it attempts to grab a bigger portion of the competitive Chinese market. Recent models include the Xiaomi Black Shark gaming phone that was unveiled a couple of days ago, Mi TV 4S, the flagship Mi MIX 2S and mid-range Redmi Note 5 (AI Dual Camera) smartphone as well as Mi gaming laptop back in March.
