Xiaomi Mi 6: Reported More Powerful Than Samsung S8

The Xiaomi Mi 6 sports a 5.15-inch display, and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC paired 6GB of RAM. This includes a pair of 12-megapixel snappers - one wide-angle lens and one telephoto lens capable of 2X lossless zoom. The fingerprint sensor is embedded underneath the display and there is no headphone jack on the Mi 6.

The company also announced that it will come out with a Mi 6 Ceramic version which has a four-sided curved ceramic casing, has wear and tear resistant up to 8 Mohs of hardness and 18-karat gold camera rims.

Xiaomi's new phone is certainly a looker, with curved glass panels on the front and pack and a stainless steel frame holding it all together. The specs of the phone can compete those of the "Galaxy S8", so it's no wonder that a lot are looking forward to the unveiling of the device. Moreover, other leaks claim that it will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with Adreno 540 GPU.

The smartphone comes with 6GB of RAM ( DDR4X 64 bit dual-channel memory) as standard across all variants along with 64/128GB of internal storage and a 3,350mAh battery.

As with other Xiaomo devices, the Mi 6 is unlikely to make its way to Europe or the United States, instead being reserved for countries such as China and India. "Mi 6 also comes with four-axis OIS so images and videos remain sharp, reducing the effect of handshake or motion", says Xiaomi in a press note.

Talking about the storage capacity, MiMax2 will come with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB internal storage which is expandable further via microSD card.

We'll have to wait for Mi 6 to launch in India before we can comment on its overall performance. But there is another device that is rumored to be launched alongside the Mi 6. The Mi 6 with 64GB of storage will go for around $360, while a 128GB model will be priced at around $420. It's not the top-notch QHD resolution of other recent flagships, but the Mi 6 doesn't cost as much as other recent flagships either (more about the price later). So guys stay tuned with us for more unbelievable and latest updates about the tech-world.

The smartphone comes with a 5.15-inch Full HD display that Xiaomi has retained from the predecessor. The device runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat with heretofore MIUI on top. There is also the dual-lens camera setup on the rear side.
