Xiaomi is gearing up to launch its new smartphone — Xiaomi Mi 6X, which is the successor of Mi 5X. The international variant of the same could be named Mi A2 — the successor of the Mi A1 Android One smartphone. The phone has been subject to several leaks, including specs, renders, etc.

While we recently reported that the Mi 6X could be powered by MediaTek’s new Helio P60 chipset, a new report claims that the phone will not be powered by the Helio P60 processor.

Recently, the Mi 6X appeared in a TENAA listing, which revealed that the phone will be powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core processor. Our guess is that it will pack the Snapdragon 630 or Snapdragon 660 as they are both clocked at 2.2GHz.

Further, the listing reveals that the phone will come in two variants based on the memory configuration — 4GB/6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB internal storage. While the leaked images related to the smartphone suggests dual camera setup at the back, the TENAA listing only lists one 20MP camera sensor on the back. On the front side, it is expected to feature a 20MP snapper.

Recently, Mishaal Rahman of XDA-Developers suggested that on the back side, the primary sensor will be Sony IMX486 while the secondary camera sensor will be Sony IMX376. On the front side, the company is expected to have the same Sony IMX376 lens.

The smartphone will flaunt a 5.99-inch display with 2160 x 1080 pixels screen resolution. It will have a full-screen display with 18:9 aspect ratio and thankfully without a notch on the top of the display, which seems to be the trend nowadays.

The Xiaomi Mi 6X is expected to be running Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box, with the company’s own MIUI on top. However, the international model of the same, which could be called Mi A2, will run stock Android Oreo as Xiaomi’s A-series is a part of Google‘s Android One program.
