A Cheaper Variant of The Xiaomi Mi 6 Could Be Launched On November 11th
Xiaomi may have plans of rebooting its 2017 flagship, the Mi 6. Spotted on the certification website, TENNA, a Mi 6 with 4GB RAM and 65GB onboard storage might be launched on the 11th of November. In April 2017, the Mi 6 with 6GB RAM/64GB storage and 6GB RAM/128GB storage were launched. A cheaper variant of the flagship could now make its way to the Chinese market in November.
The price is expected to be at 2299 Yuan (Rs 22700 approx.) which is about 200 Yuan cheaper than the standard variant. The Mi 6 with with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage is available at a price of 2899 Yuan (Rs 27100 approx.). As far as other specifications are concerned, there won’t be any changes. The Mi 6 has a 5.15 inch 1920 x 1080 px LCD display. Powering the device is a 3350 mAh battery and the phone runs Android 7.1 Nougat with MUI skin on top. Under the hood, the device has Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and Adreno 540 GPU for graphics. The fingerprint sensor is housed in the home button just below the display. Xiaomi Mi 6 is also splash-resistant, with the SIM tray also sealed against splashes.
The Xiaomi Mi 6 does have stereo speakers and is missing a 3.5mm headphone jack, much like the iPhone 7 and it seems to have become a norm these days.
The Mi 6 has a dual camera set up of two 12MP cameras at the back. One of the cameras has a wide-angle lens with 4-axis Optical Image stabilisation with an f/1.8 aperture while the other one is equipped with a telephoto lens with an f/2.6 aperture for 2X lossless zoom and bokeh effect photos. On its front, it has an 8MP camera which records 1080P videos.
Whether the cheaper variant of the Mi 6 will make its way to India is yet to be seen and its global availability will be announced when the phone is unveiled.
