Xiaomi launches flagship Mi 6 smartphone in China

Xiaomi launches flagship Mi 6 smartphone in China

The Xiaomi fans have gone berserk over a set of five most exhilarating features offered by the smartphone.

Xiaomi's Mi 6 is now official. Here's how it fares against the competition. When the Mi6 goes on sale April 28, it will only hit shelves in China.

Xiaomi Mi 6 64 GB variant has been priced at CNY 2,499 ( Rs 23,500 approx) and 128GB at CNY 2,899 (Rs 27,000 approx). While OnePlus learned the lesson with its OnePlus 3 and 3T.

The phone is loaded with 128Gb of Internal storage giving the user a much-wanted space and a battery back-up of 3350mAh which is packed in and the Xiaomi Mi6 supporting the fast-charge, which is made possible with the quick-charge of 4.0 support.

In December 2010, a suicide bomber blew himself up, also on the Drottninggatan street, slightly injuring several passersby. Police said they were unable to confirm local television reports of explosives being found inside the truck.

The phone comes with 5.15 inch full HD display with resolution 1080x1920 pixels. However, it seems as Mi 6 has given a tough competition to the most coveted smartphone. The new flagship smartphone gets a slew design and hardware upgrades, including a stainless steel metal frame, waterproofing abilities, along with the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The other popular smartphone now released with the chipset is the Samsung Galaxy S8, which costs significantly higher than the Xiaomi Mi 6. Additionally, the Snapdragon 835 SoC is reserved for the global markets.

Although the newer chipset is yet to undergo real-life tests, it is considered to bring in significant improvements over the older Snapdragon 821 SoC. The 64GB variant of the Xiaomi Mi 6 gets a price tag of around $360, while the 128GB variant of the smartphone is priced at around $420.

Pricing for the Mi 6 starts at $363 and runs up to $435 depending on the configuration. The memory can't be expanded using microSD card.

After the Redmi Pro and the Mi 5s Plus, Xiaomi is once again dabbling with a dual camera setup on the Mi 6. There are two 12-megapixel snappers accessible on the back of the Xiaomi Mi 6, and the phone ships with Android Nougat with Xiaomi's MIUI 8 OS on top of it. There is also an 8-megapixel camera on the front for selfies. The main camera will sport an f/1.8 lens while the secondary one at the rear will feature an f/2.6 zoom lens. This camera also offers a Portrait Mode similar to that found on the iPhone 7 Plus, giving you DSLR-style depth of field functionality. However, the Mi 6 also supports audio through the same port, unlike the other two smartphones listed here. The phone will also feature a 3,350mAh battery and it looks like Xiaomi will be continuing the trend of not including a headphone jack with the phone. Other connectivity features include Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, along with dual-SIM capabilities.

The splash resistant device comes with support for under-glass front fingerprint sensor. The rounded corners and the slim side bezels turn this handset into an eye-catcher. As is already evident, the flagship from Xiaomi is half the price of Apple's iPhone 7 Plus, another popular high-end phone that has a dual camera system.
