Xiaomi has been producing high-end and budget smartphones for a long time now and it’s safe to say that Xioami’s innovation and quality production has earned themselves a fair share in the current market of smartphones brands. Xiaomi’s phones are very popular in Asia especially.
Today Xiaomi has announced yet another high-end smartphone in China. With the launch of this phone, we are starting to see Xioami using 18:9 displays, the fashion of today.
The Mi 6X will come with an 18:9 2160×1080 LCD display, a Snapdragon 660 processor, dual-camera setup with a 20-megapixel main sensor (both sensors are from Sony), a 20-megapixel selfie camera with a flash, a fingerprint sensor on the rear, USB-C, and no headphone jack. The thickness of the phone is around 7.3mm, will weigh around 166 grams, and will come in black, red, blue, gold, and pink. Pricing starts at 1599 CNY, about $250 USD.
Even though the 6X is focused on China, but it could hint at an important upcoming mobile phone for Indian and other big markets for Xiaomi. Looking at the statistics of last year Mi 5x eventually slipped outside of China, making Xioami’s first Android One phone and the one that marked a turning point for Google’s program.
Who knows we might see this 6X running stock Android, rebranded as the Mi A2, and sold elsewhere around the world? It’s very possible.
