Purported real images of the Xiaomi Mi 6X have surfaced
The Mi 5X was released at the start of the second half of 2017. The device, a capable mid-range option, was overshadowed, quite overwhelmingly, by the Mi A1. The A1 and the 5X were, for all intents and purposes, the same device, but the former, being an Android One offering, featured Google's stock Android as opposed to Xiaomi's MIUI skin on the Mi 5X. News of the 5X's successor has been trickling across the internet for a while now, and the latest rumor shows what is said to be live images of the device.
Some weeks ago, a leak by a reputable source claimed that the Mi 6X, the 5X's successor, would feature a vertical dual rear camera placement similar to the iPhone X's. The leaked images actually conform to that, so there may be some truth to that. The 5X was released about six months ago, though, and it may be a bit early to have production units out already.
According to the image, the Mi 6X will sport an 18:9 display, albeit with visible bezels. Not quite as prominent as those seen on the Mi 5X but still larger than those on the Redmi 5 Plus. The device is expected to feature a 3.5mm headphone jack, an IR blaster, and a Type-C USB port, much like its predecessor. It could also be launched as the Mi A2 outside China.
Of course, leaks like these are unsubstantiated, so you'd do well to be leery.
