Xiaomi is ready to launch a new device, the Mi 6X in the market. Reports have pointed out that the Mi 6X is the successor of Xiaomi Mi A1, an Android One-powered smartphone that the company launched last year in the Indian market. A recent report suggests that Mi A1 has been discontinued without any particular reason from the company. One reason behind the discontinuation of the smartphone could be because of the upcoming Mi A2/6X.
This will be Xiaomi’s first smartphone to be launched in five colour variants. The Redmi 5, Redmi Note 5, and Redmi Note 5 Pro are currently available in Black, Gold, Rose Gold, and Blue variants, and four out of the five colour options of the Mi 6X seem to be inspired from these. Only the Red Flame variant appears to be a new colour in Xiaomi’s portfolio. The leaked posters also reveal that the handset will bear a 20-megapixel rear camera, which has been mentioned in several reports in the recent past.
Talking about specifications, the Mi 6X is expected to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, coupled with 4GB/ 6GB of RAM and 32GB/ 64GB/ 128GB inbuilt storage. The handset is said to sport a 5.99-inch full-HD+ (1080×2160 pixels) display with an apparent 18:9 aspect ratio. Additionally, the phone is expected to pack in a 2910mAh battery under the hood. While the Mi 6X might run MIUI 9 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo in China, it might be launched as Mi A2 with Android One-based Android 8.1 in markets such as India.
