Xiaomi announced the brand new Mi 6X on Wednesday, April 25. Unlike the Mi 5X, a red variant of the Mi 6X is available right from the launch day. The Mi 5X didn’t get a red variant until a few months after it was announced.
There are four other colors – black, blue, pink, and gold; and they are all stunning. However, only the red and black variants have black front bezels.
We have been able to get our hands on live photos of the red variant courtesy of ITHome and have decided to share them with you. We have also included some official promotional images from Xiaomi.
The pictures show that all color variants will come in the same retail box and with white accessories (USB-C cable and charger).
The phone does look very thin and it is sad that the audio jack had to go. The dual rear cameras have a slight bump. We don’t know if the glass covering the lens is scratch resistant, so we advise getting a case that has a bulge for the camera cut-out.
I am fawning over this red variant and it sure will make it to my list of favorite red phones for 2018.
The Xiaomi Mi 6X has a 5.99” FHD+ display, a Snapdragon 660 AIE processor, up to 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. It has dual rear cameras in a 20MP + 12MP configuration and another 20MP sensor sitting above the display.
A 3010mAh battery is under the metal body with support for Quick Charge 3.0 and it comes with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.
