Xiaomi launches the Mi 6X in grand style - Snapdragon 660, Quick Charge 3.0, no headphone jack
Xiaomi launched the Mi 5X back in July last year. The device was positioned as a mid-range camera device, and was later rebranded as the highly successful Android One Mi A1. The company has released the successor to that device today, the Mi 6X.
The Mi 6X sports a 5.99-inch FHD+ display, with slim bezels. It's powered by the popular Snapdragon 660 that offers performance close to the Snapdragon 821 used on devices like the OnePlus 3T.
Camera-wise, it features a dual rear camera setup comprised of a 20 MP Sony IMX 376 sensor and a 12 MP Sony IMX 486 sensor. The main rear sensor has a f/1.75 aperture, which promises fine low-light photography. The selfie shooter is a 20 MP Sony IMX 376 sensor, capable of portrait mode by way of software processing. There are no mentions of EIS or OIS.
The Mi 6X is powered by a 3010 mAh battery. The device is said to be able to get a 50% charge in 30 minutes via a Quick Charge 3.0-powered USB Type-C port. There are no mentions of NFC, and the device does not feature a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Mi 6X comes in three variants: one with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage (US$255), another with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage (US$285), and yet another with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage (US$315). It goes on sale on April 27, and could be rebranded as an Android One Mi A2 in the near future.
