Xiaomi has an event lined up on April 25 in China, but it’s chosen not to reveal what’s coming out at the occasion. Bets are on either the Mi 6X or Mi 7 showing up.
The Mi 7 is long overdue, but it doesn’t seem to be time for the handset to emerge yet going by various reports. Most are expecting the Mi 6X to make its debut. The handset has already appeared on TENAA, leaking out a number of specs and images in the process.
To recall, last year’s Mi 5X eventually made its way to India as the Mi A1. It’s likely that Xiaomi will repeat the same pattern this year as well, bundling the Mi 6X with Android One and selling it as the Mi A2 in the subcontinent.
As for specs, the Mi 6X might be equipped with a 5.99-inch FHD+ screen with a trendy 18:9 aspect ratio. This will allow the device to have a taller screen without altering the size too much. Bezels are going to be present all around, so no chance for a notch to make an appearance.
Other major specs which Xiaomi might include are a full-metal body, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of ROM, an 8MP selfie snapper, a Snapdragon 626 processor, dual-SIM support, a 2910mAh battery, and a USB Type-C port. The brand’s placed the dual rear cameras vertically, similar to the Redmi Note 5 Pro’s design. Rumor has it that the module will consist of a 20MP + 8MP combination.
