The successors of the Xiaomi Mi 5X and its Android One variant known as the Xiaomi Mi A1 will soon be unveiled in China. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 626-powered Xiaomi Mi 6X is expected to be unveiled on April 25 with MIUI onboard, while the Android One variant will hit the market as the Xiaomi Mi A2.

Although the Xiaomi Mi A1 was the first Android One handset of this popular Chinese brand, it quickly turned into a very successful mid-ranger than even now — more than six months since its release — provides excellent value in its sector of the market. The Xiaomi Mi A1 is, in fact, a renamed Xiaomi Mi 5X, which has the same hardware specs but runs on Xiaomi's custom MIUI firmware. By the end of the month, it seems that both will be replaced by the Mi 6X and the Mi A2.

Xiaomi has recently sent invites to the Chinese media for a special launch event that is scheduled to take place on April 25. Although the invite does not include technical details, the Xiaomi Mi 6X visited TENAA recently and most essentials have been unveiled already. The handset's specs and features include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor, a 5.99-inch full HD+ display with 2,160 x 1,080 pixels, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage (no changes here), microSD support up to 128 GB, Android 8.1 Oreo, a 20 MP selfie shooter (major improvement over the 5 MP unit of the Mi 5X/Mi A1), a 20 MP + 8 MP dual camera setup on the back, a rich set of connectivity options (sadly, it looks like NFC is still missing, but the 3.5 mm audio jack and IR sensor are still present).

The Xiaomi Mi 6X is expected to feature a 2,910 mAh battery, which is slightly less than the 3,080 mAh provided by the Mi 5X/Mi A1. At last, we should mention that the list of color options that should be available at launch is quite generous: black, gold, white, blue, red, pink, rose gold, silver, and gray. Some of the bits and pieces above are not official yet, but do not expect any major changes. In the worst case scenario, we think that Xiaomi might launch the Mi A2 a few weeks after the introduction of the Mi 6X, but nothing else.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
