The phone is the third handset to be announced with Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835processor, after the Sony Xperia XZ Premium and Samsung Galaxy S8. The new Xiaomi Mi 6 comes with a 5.15 inch display, but that's not all, the display is in HD.
The 5.15-inch display device sports 12MP wide angle with 4-axis OIS stabilisation + 12MP telephoto dual camera setup and houses 3,350mAh battery. Not only that, Mi 6 is tightly packed with powerful hardware and specifications one can't expect at the price point: that's something Xiaomi has consistently delivered upon.Its stunning 3D glass designfeatures 4 sides of curved glass-back which is something unique to Mi 6 and is really mesmerizing.
Xiaomi's new phone is certainly a looker, with curved glass panels on the front and pack and a stainless steel frame holding it all together. Unfortunately, the Mi 6 doesn't feature a 3.5mm audio jack.
According to the company, the Snapdragon 835 chipset has been developed on the 10nm process and hence consumes up to 25 per cent less power than its previous generation chipsets.
Xiaomi is selling the 64 GB Mi 6 model for 2,499 yuan ($362). As for selfies, an 8-megapixel camera should be enough for snapping great self-portraits. It will be available starting 28 April on Mi.com and in all 72 Mi Home stores in China, and will make its way to selected global markets at a later date. But we think that it will come with Android 7.0 running MIUI 8.2 on top. However, Xiaomi Mi6 is more expensive than its usual flagship prices. Hence, it is confirmed that phone will have golden color but there can be launched with other color variants also.
Similar to the Mi 5s, the Mi 6features a Qualcomm-based ultrasonic fingerprint reader built under the glass at the bottom of the phone.
To achieve the ideal balance between power consumption and performance, Mi 6 is equipped with an octa-core processor with four performance cores running at up to 2.45 GHz.
The Mi 6 comes in three shades - blue, silver and ceramic.
Another advantage of the dual camera setup is the ability to shoot handsome portraits with out-of-focusbackgrounds. In both tests, it outperformed the Samsung Galaxy S8 (1,916 single-core and 6,011 multi-core) and Samsung Galaxy S8+ (1,929 single-core and 6,084 multi-core). Xiaomi is also adding 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) connectivity in there.
The Mi 6 also comes with NFC and the handset is compatible with the company's Mi Pay NFC-based mobile payments service.
