With one day to go before Xiaomi officially unveils its next-generation Mi 6 flagship, the phone made an appearance on benchmarking website GFXBench. This isn't the first time the Mi 6 showed up on GFXBench, but this time around the listing corroborates that the handset will indeed feature a dual camera setup, as many rumors and leaks have already indicated.
According to the current listing, the Xiaomi Mi 6 will debut with a 5.1-inch FullHD (1920 x 1080) display, just like its predecessor. The device is also reportedly set to take advantage of Qualcomm’s first 10nm system-on-chip (SoC), the Snapdragon 835. According to GFXBench, customers can expect the flagship to come in two variants - the base one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage and the more advanced one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage. The dual camera setup listed here consists of two 12-megapixel sensors capable of shooting 4K video recordings, while the selfie snapper is an 8-megapixel one and will also support 4K video capture. It's worth noting that previous rumors have claimed that the Xiaomi Mi 6 would come carrying a slightly different main dual camera made of a 12-megapixel and an 8-megapixel sensor. Regardless, most industry insiders agree that the Xiaomi Mi 6 will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat with Xiaomi’s MIUI 9 interface out of the box.
A batch of leaked Xiaomi Mi 6 images surfaced out of China yesterday, suggesting the phone might make an appearance with a ceramic back panel and two speaker grills located at the bottom. The pictures also reveal the phone will lack the standard 3.5mm audio port but will feature an USB Type-C port. Alongside the Mi 6, Xiaomi is also expected to unveil a larger version of the flagship dubbed the Mi 6 Plus. If rumors are to be believed, this variant will arrive with a 5.7-inch panel with either FullHD or QHD resolution. Both phones will feature a physical home button located under the display, which will most likely double as a fingerprint scanner. While none of this information has been confirmed by the Chinese company, tomorrow’s launch event will surely reveal everything there is to know about the Xiaomi Mi 6 and Mi 6 Plus.
