We have already covered the Xiaomi Mi 6X several times, and the phone is now official, and it launches tomorrow on the 27th of April.
As usual with Xiaomi and this range of phones, in particular, you get an insane amount of phone for your money.
The phone comes with a Snapdragon 660, 4/64GB or 6/128GB RAM/Storage configuration, 12MP+20MP rear, 20 MP front, 3,010mAh, QC 3.0 and USB type-C
The 4/64GB will cost RMB 1599 or £181 if you could get it at the same price in pounds.
2018 is all about the camera and Xiaomi are keen to show off the camera performance of the new phone. The 12MP+20MP rear setup, and “Xiao AI” features, such as scene recognition, a variety of voice commands, and so on. The front camera, a 20MP IMX376, uses pixel binning to allow for much stronger light sensitivity in selfies.
Last year the Mi 5X was a huge success, and it was later modified for the international market in the form of the Mi A1 which removed MIUI 9 in favour of Android One. It is highly likely we will see a similar release this year in the form of a Mi A2 or another name.
The phone will be limited to China, but you will likely find it available on import sites if you can’t wait for the international version.
Xiaomi has also announced they will forever limit the net profit margin after tax for our entire hardware sales (including smartphones, IoT and lifestyle products) to a maximum of 5%. This could be one of the many reasons why they can offer phones at such competitive prices.
