One of the most anticipated smartphones for the past two years has just been made official as the Xiaomi Mi6 was just announced in China. We’ve been impatiently awaiting for the official unveiling which was expected to come late last year, but as you all already know it never happened when we hoped.

Now, Xiaomi impressed us all with it’s perfect adaption of a high-end smartphone with a Xiaomi-like price tag which comes in hundreds less than competitors such as Apple. It’ll be interesting to see what the Mi6 does for declining Apple sales, especially in emerging markets such as India, China, and others throughout Asia.

Xiaomi Mi6 Specs and Features

One of the most welcomed surprises of the Xiaomi Mi6 specs is the highly regarded Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. To-date, it’s only the third smartphone to feature the high-end processor which will take multitasking capabilities in the palm of your hands to a whole new level.

Other Xiaomi Mi6 specs and features are as follows:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC
  • 6GB RAM
  • Dual 12-MP primary camera
  • 8-MP secondary camera
  • Android 7.1.1 Nougat pre-installed
  • 64 and 128GB models
  • 5.15 IPS LCD Capacitative display
  • 3350 mah battery with fast charging technology
  • Colors – black, blue, white and ceramic black
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • Dual SIM
  • Splash resistant

The Mi6 sports some pretty impressive specs and the most impressive thing will be the price. It’s expected to launch for only $350 (US price) which will be comparable in other markets and will come in almost $400 less than the Galaxy S8 and iPhone7 when launched.

The official unveiling in China was April 19th with consumer sales starting sometime in May. Those in India will have to wait until the end of April to early June and the price is expected to come in under Rs 25000.
