Xiaomi Mi 6 release
Finally, the Xiaomi Mi 6 release date is confirmed. According to Xiaomi’s official website, Mi 6 will be unveiled on April 19 at Beijing University of Technology Gymnasium. A message also follows, “You waited for 203 days, we waited for seven years.” According to a Xiaomi official, 203 days have passed since the launch of Xiaomi Mi 5s. And it took them seven years to “explore the dream of the work.”
Mi 6 specifications
The new flagship phone will still be a performance monster, according to the official. From the information that was gathered, it is likely to use Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU and probably curved glass as the main material of the body.
According to previous information, Xiaomi Mi 6’s new features will be the use of USB type C port for earphones (no 3.5mm interface), improved iris recognition, no physical Home button, and glass body (with ceramic version). Other specifications reported were 5.1-inch FHD (1080p) screen, 4GB / 6GB RAM, 64GB / 128GB ROM and Android 7.1.1 system. The front camera is 8 megapixels while the rear is 12 megapixels. The Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus was also reported, which will have a 5.7-inch screen and may adopt the dual rear camera design.
Appearance and price
Xiaomi’s confidentiality about the Mi 6 is topnotch. With less than ten days to go until the conference, there are no confirmed leaked photos yet. Only renders and sketches are available. We can only speculate on how the Mi 6 would look like.
As for the price, Xiaomi Mi 6 will most likely cost higher than its flagship predecessors, which were previously released at CNY 1999. One reason for this is the rise in cost of mobile phone parts and components. Another is Xiaomi’s need to ensure cost and production. The new price will probably be CNY 2599 for the basic version and up to CNY 3699 for the advanced.
