With the first quarter of 2017 closing in, we have seen amazing phones like the LG G6, and the almighty S8 and S8+. Mi flagships are something we are less excited about, but it’s 2017, and everything in technology is blowing my mind these days. Recently, leaks of Mi 6 has started appearing and it is absolutely gorgeous. If you loved the display of S8 then you’re in for a treat seeing the Mi 6.
There have been few renders of the Mi 6, but it’s not quite certain which will make it to the assembly line. The other renders are similar to Mi 5 with an edge-to-edge display and usual industrial design. Having used the Mi Mix, the bezel-less render of Mi 6 has to be the most beautiful phone I’ve ever seen. But before getting all hyped up, the render clearly shows no navigation bar and instead of the bottom chin, it has a favorable upper chin.
Now talking about specs, nothing is certain when you’re talking about leaks but these days they are pretty much accurate. Let’s hope it’s true for Mi 6 as well. So, the phone will come in two variant, Mi 6 and the Mi 6 Plus. The Mi 6 will come with a 5.15-inch display and the Mi 6 Plus will come with a 5.7inch display. Both the phones sport Full HD panel. Powering the phone will be the latest Snapdragon 835 Chipset. Mi 6 will come in 4GB and 6GB RAM variant with 32/64/128GB options. And the Mi 6 Plus will come with 6GB of RAM and 64/128GB option. All of the storage variants will be based on UFS 2.0, which means faster R/W speed resulting in faster performance.
On the photography front, both Mi 6 variant comes with a dual back camera 15+15MP. On the front, it’ll have an 8MP Ultra Pixel Camera. Ultra Pixel Camera’s let more light enter into the sensor resulting in bright and sharp photos and is usually used for making night shots better. Both the phones will be running on Android Nougat with MIUI 8 on top.
Mi 6 Plus will be backed up by 4,500mAh battery while the Mi 6 will come with 4,000mAh battery. Mi 6 with 4GB RAM and either 32/64GB storage will cost $290 and $335 respectively.
