Xiaomi Mi 6 goes official with Snapdragon 835, dual main camera


Xiaomi Mi 6 is the company's latest flagship phone featuring Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB RAM, and a dual-lens primary camera setup with 2x lossless zoom.

One of the USPs of the Xiaomi Mi 6, the camera on the rear of the phone is a dual-sensor setup, offering two 12MP sensors, with one having a wide-angled lens while the other has double the focal length.

Precisely crafted like a watch, Mi 6 seamlessly integrates four-sided 3D curved glass and a stainless steel frame. The handset comes powered by a Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-center processor and a 3,350mAh battery is additionally a piece of this bundle. The Mi 6 with 64GB of storage will go for around $360, while a 128GB model will be priced at around $420. If the provided info is to be believed, the Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus will essentially be a larger variant of the Xiaomi Mi 6, but it will remain the design of Xiaomi's already-announced flagship, and also most of its specifications. In terms of optics, the buzz is it will have a 23-megapixel rear camera along with a 16-megapixel shooter at the front. The Mi 6 will become available in China starting April 28th, so there is enough time for customers to decide on the storage option and the color variant they will choose. But we think that it will come with Android 7.0 running MIUI 8.2 on top.

Another noteworthy feature of the Xiaomi Mi6 is its powerful camera, that will remind you of iPhone 7. The fingerprint sensor on the front is also embedded under glass, while there is a uniformity in the alignment of all the ports, speakers and other knick-knacks found externally. Xiaomi does have a phone that takes the no-bezel approach - the stunning Mi Mix - but that design has been omitted here. Its binocular stereoscopic vision imaging and depth learning algorithm makes edge recognition more accurate in the photos, says Xiaomi. There is also a portrait mode for the main camera.
