Xiaomi Mi 6 Configuration Details Leak: 2K Display, Mi Note 2 Camera

by Habeeb Onawole 15

The Xiaomi Mi 6 is not launching anytime soon. Xiaomi is not even attending MWC 2017. So if you have been unaware of that detail and been looking forward to the Mi 6 making an appearance, we are sorry to burst your bubble.

However the configuration details for Xiaomi’s next flagship were leaked on Weibo by a user called @Reviewer_Well. His post says the Xiaomi Mi 6 will be available in two variants: a 4GB RAM + 32GB ROM variant which will have a 1080p display and a 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM variant with a WQHD display.

He goes on to mention the camera details. The front facing camera is the Sony IMX268 8MP autofocus sensor which is the same one in the Xiaomi Mi Note 2. Sadly we won’t be getting the Mi Note 2’s 22.5MP rear sensor, instead the Mi 6 will have a 12MP Sony IMX386 sensor.

Rumor has it that the Mi 6 will go on sale in April but there is still no launch date yet. These specifications are unconfirmed by Xiaomi, so you might want to take it with a pinch of salt.

    I am not sad the rear sensor is not the same as the Mi Note. So many pixels to get an oil painting effect, really no need. I think the MI5s sensor is much better!

    The imx386 is a perfectly fine sensor if Xiaomi gets the software aspect of it right.

      And user proper lenses.

    So far I have not heard a single interesting thing about it.

    The MX6’s IMX386 is not a bad choice, but not a really good choice either. The Note 2’s IMX318 would have even worse IMO.

    At least this time they should put the camera together with OIS and large aperture not to mention much better camera software. Otherwise even best sensor alone doesn’t necessarily mean good image quality.

    They have to replace old LCD tech with well calibrated OLED. Its design must be in line with the Mix. Judging by the early leaks this year S8, G6 and later iPhone 8 likely will have great screen body ratios and screens with higher aspect ratios than 16:9.

    Phone designs with large bezels and 16:9 screens will be considered outdated.

    Half the price tag is not enough anymore.

      Luckily they also have excellent software and support to go along with that half price tag. I’ll gladly take a 16:9 ratio on a better phone than pay an extra $400 for an overpriced Samsung with terrible software.

      But Huawei are the one’s to really watch out for.

    bad camera again

    Zte makes good budget phone with good camera for its price but they have a crap software and ui. Xiaomi other hand have good ui and software but mediocre camera. You can win when buying Chinese phones.

      ZTE’s software is getting better and better each year.

    • lildwell

      Well it doesn’t matter to me because I’m slapping Lineage OS and Google camera on whichever device releases sources first.

    “Sadly we won’t be getting the Mi Note 2’s 22.5MP rear sensor, instead the Mi 6 will have a 12MP Sony IMX386 sensor”

    Sad that they are using a better camera sensor? Please tell me this author doesn’t believe”higher mega-pixels = better camera”. I expect more from this site.

        Sensei! Where have you been? How is life?

        • MaxPower

          I’m slowly losing interest into reading few articles between Elephones ads on both sites. Life’s good, very busy at work.
          What about you?

          • balcobomber25

            Just busy with grad school, also doing a lot of work in India consulting for a few companies including Micromax. Lot of work and lot of late nights with little sleep but enjoyable none the less. I mostly go on AA now, these sites have become a shell of their former selves.

  • I don’t care which camera sensor will use xiaomi. All of xiaomi’s phones have poor camera, even if before premiere they show fake photos taken by SLR lol.
