Lately, Xiaomi — the China-based smartphone manufacturer has been aggressively launching new devices. The company is now gearing up to launch its flagship smartphone next year — Xiaomi Mi 7. However, according to the latest leak, the company is also working on Mi 6X.
An image of the phone’s back cover has been leaked online which allegedly belongs to the upcoming Xiomi Mi 6X smartphone. This is the first time we are hearing about the Mi 6X, which is supposed to be an upgraded model of Mi 6, the company’s current flagship device.
The leaked image suggests that the phone will come with a dual camera setup at the back with two camera sensor stacked vertically. The camera module will be placed at the top-left corner, similarly to what we saw on Apple’s iPhone X.
There is a big circular hole in the middle of the back cover, which we are assuming is for the fingerprint sensor. Apart from that, this transparent silicone case also shows the phone’s buttons placed on the right. It seems that there is a speaker grill at the bottom, along with a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Given that the fingerprint sensor is placed at the back, there is a possibility that the phone will feature a full-screen bezel-less display — similar to what we saw on the recently launched Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus.
The Mi 5X was launched in July earlier this year, so if the company is indeed working on the Mi 6X smartphone, we are expecting it to get launched in mid-2018. It will be interesting given that the company would have already launched its next-generation flagship smartphone Mi 7.
Xiaomi Mi 7 is expected to come with a 5.65-inch display whereas the Mi 7 Plus may feature a large 6.01-inch screen. Both the phones are rumoured to support 18:9 aspect ratio. The Mi 7 may include a battery of 3,200mAh capacity whereas the larger Mi 7 Plus may feature a 3,500mAh battery. These devices are also rumoured to support wireless charging.
The recently announced Snapdragon 845 chipset is likely to be the driving force for the smartphones, along with 6GB RAM. Both smartphone models are expected to house dual rear cameras featuring Sony IMX380 and IMX350 sensors.
