The Xiaomi Mi 6 is expected to land in April, and the phone’s front panels just surfaced. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll get two front panel leaks, showing off alleged black and white Xiaomi Mi 6 front panels. These two images are actually showing off front panels with really thin side bezels, and a rather big home button below the display. In addition to that, you can see quite a few cutouts above the display, one of which seems to confirm an iris scanner for the Xiaomi Mi 6, read on.
In addition to the iris scanner above the display, you will get a front-facing camera here, and the phone’s home key is flanked by two smaller cutouts which are reserved for the device’s capacitive back and overview (multitasking) keys which will be customizable inside MIUI 8. The Xiaomi Mi 5 came with a physical home key which doubled as a fingerprint scanner, though that home key was considerably thinner than the one shown off in the Xiaomi Mi 6 renders. If this leak is accurate, the Xiaomi Mi 6 will still sport quite a bit of bezel above and below the display, but its side bezels will be really thin, presuming we won’t get thick black bars around the display, of course. Now, we’ve seen various Xiaomi Mi 6 rumors thus far, and three dates have been mentioned in those rumors, April 11th, April 16th and April 18th. Chances are that the Xiaomi Mi 6 will launch on one of those dates, and the company recently shared Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 post on Weibo (Chinese social network), which suggests that the Xiaomi Mi 6 will be fueled by Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor.
Now, the Xiaomi Mi 6 is rumored to land in two variants, the regular Mi 6 variant, and the Mi 6 Plus model. The Xiaomi Mi 6 will, allegedly, sport a 5.15-inch fullHD display, just like its predecessor, while the Mi 6 Plus will come with a considerably larger, 5.7-inch fullHD panel. Both devices will be made out of metal and glass, and the rumors are saying that the ‘Plus’ model will sport a dual camera setup on its back. Android Nougat will come pre-installed on these two handsets, and chances are we’ll get MIUI 8 out of the box, as MIUI 9 is expected to land later this year.
