After launching Mi Mix2 smartphone in the market, Xiaomi is looking forward to launching another competitor in the race of bezel-less handset. Citing a recent leak, the Chinese smartphone maker is manufacturing a yet another 5.99-inch display handset after Mi Mix2 and Mi Mix2s.
Regarding the naming of the handset, the leaks surfacing on the Internet suggested that the device will be sold as Mi 6X in its home country in China. Interestingly, the previously launched Android One handset from Xiaomi, Mi A1 was launched with a similar nomenclature. In China, the Mi A1 smartphone was named as Mi 5x. Hence, it could be assumed that the leaked Mi 6X could be Mi A2 for India.
The handset will be unveiled with similar look and feel of flagship Mi Mix2s. At the rear, you will find a similar dual camera setup along with a fingerprint scanner at the centre of the panel. The smartphone will be sporting a pair of a 20-megapixel lens with f/2.0 aperture and 8-megapixel lens with f/1.8 aperture, accompanied by an LED flash.
On the front, the Xiaomi Mi 6X or Mi A2 will flaunt a mesmerising 5.99-inch FHD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) IPS display with 18:9 aspect ratio with a 20 MP selfie snapper. While seeing the image from TENNA it is still unclear that how much bezel would be present at the front. Also, where the camera would be placed, at the top of the handset (near the earpiece speaker) or at the bottom (near the mic).
Apart from looks and the camera, the Xiaomi Mi 6X or Mi A2 will be powered by a 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It has also been suggested with the leaked images that the upcoming smartphone will be running on Android 8.1.0 out-of-the-box; and will be fueled with a powerful 2910mAh battery.
Hence, if you are looking to purchase a Xiaomi handset, and likes the stunning display of Xiaomi Mi Mix2 and Mi Mix2s, and tight at the budget, you can wait for the upcoming Mi 6X(Mi A2 for India). However, if you are a hardcore gamer or need a full-on performance and budget doesn’t matter to you, go with Mi Mix2s. Though, I would suggest giving a look at other options available in the market as well.
It is expected that the Xiaomi will launch Mi 6X (Mi A2) under the sub 20K category in India in Red, Black, Rose Gold colour variants. Let me know in the comment section down below that would you like wait for this handset, and what do you think that what will be its competitors. Also, please suggest that how much Xioami is needed to tag the price of the handset to make it a worth buy.
