Xiaomi device with Snapdragon 660 to launch as the Mi 6X

Mi 6
Xiaomi's new device, spotted carrying a Snapdragon 660 on GFXBench a while ago, has been speculated to be released as the Mi 6X.

Last week, we reported the sighting of a mysterious high-end Xiaomi device on GFXBench. The device, styled "Xiaomi Jason", was speculated to be the Mi 6C, a cheaper, lower performing variant of the standard Mi 6. Information has surfaced that points towards the device being, in fact, the Mi 6X.

This wouldn't be the first time Xiaomi have released an X variant of a device, with the Redmi 4X and subsequent Redmi Note 4X being recent precedents. These devices, however, were improved versions of the Redmi 4 and Redmi Note 4 respectively, while this would be a downgrade from the Mi 6. Quite baffling, some would say. The OEM would do well to have a standardized naming format.

As previously reported, the Mi 6X will carry the Snapdragon 660, Qualcomm's new mid-range SoC. It will sport a 12MP rear camera and a 4MP selfie shooter, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Slated for an August release, it's expected to retail with a price tag in the $300 region.
