Xiaomi Mi 6 Leaked Photos Reveal USB Type-C, Curved Back But No 3.5mm Headphone Jack

Xiaomi has started teasing the features of its upcoming Xiaomi Mi 6 flagship smartphone. The first teaser hinted the arrival of dual rear cameras on the Mi 6 and the following teaser has suggested that it may arrive with curved design at all four sides at the front and rear. It is also rumored that the Xiaomi Mi 6 would be coming with an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner that will be embedded under the front glass. It is also said to function as a Home button. Weibo has now revealed several leaked photos of the Xiaomi Mi 6 which confirm all the aforementioned teasers and leaked information.

It can be clearly seen from the above image that the Xiaomi Mi 6 has a larger Home button compared to its predecessor. Rumors have it that does not press down. However, it is speculated to be equipped with a linear motor to deliver vibrational feedback.

The body of the Xiaomi Mi 6 appears to be made of ceramic to boast premium design. If you remember, the recent teaser suggested that the Mi 6 will have four curved design. Now, this could mean two things: curved display + curved back design or four curved design at the back (kind of like Honor Magic which had an eight curved design). Despite reports saying that the Mi 6’s display was going to be flat, this new teaser from the company kind of rekindled dual curved display rumors.

But seeing these renders and the fact that they are in line with previous leaks, it’s possible that Xiaomi’s teaser was talking about the four curved design at the back. Fresh information also suggests that the Xiaomi Mi 6 will be coming with IP67 certified dust and water resistant body.

Xiaomi Mi 6’s topside seems to feature an IR blaster. The right side of the phone features volume controllers and power button. The back panel is equipped with dual rear cameras coupled with dual LED flash. The bottom side of the phone features a USB Type-C port that separates the two external speakers. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack on the device.

The Xiaomi Mi 6 appears to be aesthetically beautiful in these leaked shots. It is a well-known fact that the phone will be powered by Snapdragon 835. Recently, it was spotted on Geekbench with stellar performance scores.

With the arrival of features like IP67 rated body and iris scanner, it seems that the phone will be selling with a higher price tag. Leaked details have revealed that the Xiaomi Mi 6’s base model featuring 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage would be available for 2,199 Yuan ($319) whereas the starting price of Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus featuring 6 GB RAM and 64 GB storage would be priced at 2,699 Yuan ($392).

    I hope they have stereo speaker, kinda tired for their dual grill speaker design but only one is the real speaker.

    No headphone jack, no buy. Sorry Xiaomi, but you copied the wrong manufacturer this time around.

    This is about the 100th “leak” over the past week, and about the 4th different design we have seen. In other words this could be the next Mi6 or it could be another fraud. We won’t know till next week.

    Screw Xiaomi! No jack is a no buy!

    Also… If the device is as fragile as the Mi5 as shown on JerryRigEverything…

    I’m not buying a phone without a simple 3.5mm audio jack which I use a lot with my headphones. I might wait for OP4(5?) or buy S8 now even though I don’t like Samsung for it’s laggy UI but I don’t have a choice to replace my old phone, LG for G6 is asking too much for a phone with last year CPU, as for Xperia XZ Premium I can’t stand the HUGE bezels and only 3GB of RAM!! This year is the worst in smartphones history.

      I have to agree… Snapdragon chips are underpowering and also to add salt to the insult, Apple is getting better and better each year.

      And if Mediatek manages to catch Qualcomm up… Oh boy…

    I,ve been using a Le Pro 3 with no 3.5″ Jack since November and I’ve never missed it. At first I was using their headphones but I gave up really quickly because they were extremely uncomfortable.
    The phone came with an adapter so I can easily use my Xiaomi hybrid.
    The result is a extra inch of the cord and I really don’t get why is such big deal for so many

      How did you like the RN3? I am thinking about getting the international version to get my MIUI fix. I like the new Note 4 but it is missing Band 2.
