Xiaomi Mi 6X With Metallic Unibody Design Leaked Again
For the past few weeks, the Xiaomi Mi 6X has been in the news for multiple leaks. Its first ever leak revealed a design on the back similar to the iPhone X with a vertically placed dual-camera. Interestingly, even the LED flash appears to be placed between two cameras like the iPhone X. The Mi 5X was launched in mid-2017 so it looks like the Mi 6X launch is a few months away as of now.
However, that doesn’t stop more leaks from surfacing online. A new leak has revealed that the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 6X will have a metallic, possibly aluminium, unibody build and design. This is very similar to the build of the Xiaomi Mi 5X and a lot of other mid-range devices. As expected, the fingerprint sensor is placed on the back of the device.
Apart from the design leaks, there hasn’t been a lot of information about the specifications that have been leaked. Even if the Mi 6X is launched with this design, there is no guarantee that India will see a launch of this smartphone. The Mi 5X was launched in India as the Mi A1 with stock Android OS and was well-received. If the Mi 6X comes to India, it will be a successor to the Mi A1 with stock OS again.
What Do We Know About The Xiaomi Mi 6X So Far?
A few days ago, two leaks of the Xiaomi Mi 6X revealed that the device will continue the trend of having dual cameras and a tall display. The new images seemingly confirm that and it appears that the Mi 6X will have an 18:9 5.99 inch display. The company could use an IPS LCD panel, similar to its predecessor and a lot of other Xiaomi mid-range devices.
The Xiaomi Mi6X will be powered by the recently leaked Surge S2 chipset. The Surge S2 will have an octa-core CPU with four Cortex-A73 cores running at 2.2 GHz and four Cortex-A53 at 1.8 GHz. Accompanying the chipset will be the Mali-G71 MP8 GPU which is a great improvement over the Mali-T860 from the Surge S1.
The Xiaomi Mi 5X was launched in July of 2017 and the Mi 6X is expected to be launched at a similar time. If so, then the Mi A1 (2018) or Mi A2 will be launched in India in September.
