Xiaomi launches its latest flagship Mi 6

Xiaomi Mi 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S8 vs One Plus 3T Xiaomi launches its latest flagship Mi 6
Rosalie Gross | 21 April, 2017, 04:09

Inside sits a Snapdragon 835 chipset (a processor we've only seen in two other phones: the Galaxy S8 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium), a massive 6GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of storage, and a 3350mAh battery.

The Xiaomi Mi 6 sports a 12MP dual-camera array, which takes inspiration from Apple's approach of mixing a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens in the iPhone 7.

On the storage front, this device comes in two variants; 64GB and 128GB along with 6GB RAM. Besides being a performance beast that is powered by Snapdragon 835, Mi 6 also demonstrates how we are constantly refining our design and pushing the boundaries of materials technology with the use of four-sided 3D curved glass and ceramic. Holding the display and the sides together is a frame made out of stainless steel. It's also worth pointing out that the new Mi 6 does not get a headphone jack. There'll also be a model with a flashier ceramic back panel for 2,999 yuan (about $435). In terms of optics, the buzz is it will have a 23-megapixel rear camera along with a 16-megapixel shooter at the front.

Xiaomi Mi 6 will be available in China as from tomorrow, but there's still no word on the global availability. OnePlus has recently updated the 3T to Android 7.0 Nougat. Per usual for a Xiaomi phone, it appears to pack powerful hardware at a relatively affordable price.

Overall both phones are looks good on the brochure with the Galaxy S8 being the pricier device comes with better specifications.

As per our sources, Xiaomi Mi Max2 will be named as Xiaomi Oxygen. For connectivity, the Xiaomi Mi 6 supports 4G+ networks with download speed of up to 600Mbps and up to 100Mbps upload speed. Aside from very basic specs like screen resolution, dimensions, and battery size, are eleven different color options for the Xiaomi Mi 6. The rear camera also offers up a 10x digital zoom, 2x lossless zoom, and optical image stabilization (OIS). Xiaomi also revealed that there will be an worldwide release to "selected" markets in the future though the date and locations were withhold. The Mi 6 does, however, boast stereo speakers, Qualcomm's Sense ID fingerprint authentication with the fingerprint scanner embedded under the display, and a USB-Type C port. The higher-end capacity also comes in a special ceramic edition with an 18-karat gold-lined camera for a few dollars more. The 64GB version will go on sale for approximately $360, while the 128GB storage option will take customers as far as $420.
