The Xiaomi Mi 6X is expected to arrive in mid-2018, and the phone has just leaked in a new image, at least that seems to be the case. If you take a look at the provided image, you will get to see a mysterious Xiaomi-branded smartphone, and the source claims this is the Xiaomi Mi 6X. Now, some of you probably think that this could be the Redmi Note 5 Pro based on the location of its cameras and a fingerprint scanner, well, that is true, but it seems like this phone sports a different antenna placement than the Redmi Note 5 Pro, at least based on the looks of a case that the phone is in.
As you can see, the phone features a vertically-aligned dual-camera setup, just like the Redmi Note 5 Pro and the Mi 2S, while all the physical keys seem to be located on the right-hand side of this smartphone. This smartphone has the U-antenna design, if the case is to be believed, though this image does not reveal all that much, as the whole back side is covered by the case, but at least it suggests the placement of the phone’s cameras and its fingerprint scanner. The Xiaomi Mi 5X was announced back in June last year, while that phone later became the Xiaomi Mi A1, Xiaomi simply rebranded it, and included stock Android on it. The same will probably happen with the Mi 6X, as Xiaomi is expected to announce the Mi A2 which will be a part of Google’s Android One program, mainly because the Mi A1 was quite popular, which is not that surprising considering that it was, and still is, really cheap, while its internals and build quality are nothing to scoff at.
The Xiaomi Mi 6X and Mi A2, if a recently-leaked spec sheet is to be believed, will sport a 5.99-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) display, just like the Redmi Note 5 Pro and the Redmi 5 Plus. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 626 64-bit octa-core SoC will fuel the device, while Xiaomi will also include 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage in the device. 20 and 8-megapixel snappers will be included on the back of the phone, while a single 20-megapixel shooter will be placed on the device’s front side. A 2,910mAh non-removable battery was also mentioned, as was Android 8.1 Oreo.
