Xiaomi Mi 6X Will Be A Colourful Version Of Redmi Note 5 Pro
The Xiaomi Mi 6X is expected to succeed the Mi A1 in India as the Mi A2 or Mi A1 (2018). But, before its launch in India, the Mi 6X will be launched at an event in China on the 25th of April. The Mi 6X is launching a couple of months in advance as the Mi 5X was launched on the 26th of July in 2017. Recently, Xiaomi released an official teaser of the Mi 6X revealing the design of the smartphone. Now, a new teaser video of the Mi 6X reveals the different colour variants the device will be available in.
From the teasers released by Xiaomi so far, it is quite evident that the Mi 6X will resemble the Redmi Note 5 Pro. The smartphone will have a vertically placed dual-camera setup on the back with the LED flash placed between the two sensors. It is quite possible for the Mi 6X to have the same cameras as the Redmi Note 5 Pro considering the similar price point of the two devices. This time around, it looks like the Mi 6X will be available in a red colour variant from the offset.
In 2017, Xiaomi launched a red colour variant of the Mi A1 a few months after the Mi A1 was launched in India. With the Xiaomi Mi 6X, the company will introduce a few colourful variants which is a great move by the company. The Mi 6X will be available in Red, Gold, Rose Gold, Black and Blue colour variants. How many of these will make their way to the Indian shores is yet to be seen.
According to a recent TENAA listing, the Xiaomi Mi 6X has a 5.99 inch IPS LCD 2160 x 1080 px display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, the device has a 2.2 GHz Octa-core chipset, which could be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 626/660 chipset. Additionally, the device has either 4/6GB RAM with 64/128GB onboard storage.
The device has a dual 20MP and a 12MP sensor. However, the exact implementation of this dual camera setup is yet to be known. For the front-facing camera, the smartphone uses a 20MP sensor, like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. Additionally, the front-facing camera is likely to support Face Unlock. The smartphone will be powered by a 2910 mAh battery and support Fast Charging as well.
The Mi 6X, if launched in India as the Mi A1 successor, could be priced very similar to the Redmi Note 5 Pro. The Redmi Note 5 Pro is still one of the best budget smartphones in India and the only caveat is the flash sale system. It will be interesting to see if consumers in India would pick a better chipset on the Redmi Note 5 Pro or stock OS on the Mi A2.
