Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi is gearing for a new smartphone launch. Dubbed as the Xiaomi 6X, it will be succeeding the last year’s Mi 5X, also known as Mi A1 which came with stock Android on board. An image of the new device showing its back panel was leaked in Chinese media platform Weibo.
The leaked image shows the device featuring lines similar to its predecessor and a metallic body with its upper plastic band of antennas. The device as expected sports dual camera setup on the rear but with some minor changes. This time the dual cameras have been stacked in a vertical position in the top left corner similar to the Apple iPhone X camera setup. Between the camera sensors, there is a gap which will likely hold the LED flash.
In the middle part of the rear panel, there is a hole which we guess the fingerprint sensor will be placed. The rear placement of the fingerprint sensor means the smartphone will be sporting a FullScreen display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The Mi A1 didn’t have an 18:9 aspect ratio which is a huge drawback when compared to smartphones from the same segment like the Honor 7X.
Other specs are not available at this moment, but a photo of TPU case was leaked online showing a speaker grill at the bottom and a 3.5 mm jack. So we will suggest you don’t throw your old 3.5 mm earphones away. According to the rumours, the Xiaomi 6X will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset along with 6 GB of RAM.
We cannot say certainly if the leaked image is fake or genuine, but comparing it with the previous model, it looks like it is real. Also, it is the time the Mi A1 gets an upgrade. We can fairly assume that the new Xiaomi Mi 6X will be launch both in local and international markets since its predecessor did the same and was very successful overseas.
