Xiaomi to launch a dual-camera handset in India

Xiaomi has two handsets with a dual camera setup on the market, but none in India yet. However, this is going to change in September, when the first Xiaomi phone with this popular feature is scheduled to hit the local market.

India is an excellent market for Xiaomi since only Samsung managed to beat the Chinese brand there in the first quarter of 2017. However, the Mi 6 and Mi 5X, both powerful phones with a dual camera setup, are not present in the country yet. Fortunately, the first Xiaomi handset to offer this feature has been confirmed to arrive next month.

A message recently posted on Twitter by Xiaomi India's Managing Director, Manu Kumar Jain, reads the following: "Can't wait for you guys to check out Xiaomi's first dual-camera phone in India! Coming next month! Can you guess which one?"

As mentioned earlier, there are only two candidates: Xiaomi Mi 5X and Xiaomi Mi 6. Since Xiaomi Mi 5 arrived in India last year less than a month after its release in China, it is more likely to see the Mi 5X launching in India next. The Mi 5X arrived in China a week ago, while the Mi 6 has been around since April.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
