Xiaomi Mi 6 Goes Official with Snapdragon 835 SoC

Xiaomi has just officially announced its latest flagship — Mi 6, at an event in Beijing, China. It is the next device to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor right after the Sony Xperia XZ Premium and Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ (Malaysia getting the Exynos variant, though).

The Mi 6 sports a 5.15-inch Full HD display with an eye-protection mode, and also a pretty slim bezel. Like the iPhone 7, the Mi 6 now doesn’t have a 3.5mm audio jack, but there’s splash resistance. The device also features an under-glass fingerprint sensor below the display like the Huawei P10.

In terms of camera, the Mi 6 features a dual-camera setup with two 12MP cameras on its back (wide-angle lens + telephoto lens). The 12MP wide-angle lens comes with a 4-axis OIS to keep things steady. Additionally, there’s a Portrait Mode as well. Selfie wise, it’s still an 8MP front camera to get the job done.

Inside the curved rear glass panel and metal frame is a 3,350mAh battery, which the company claims able to last through a day easily.

The Mi 6 comes with four color finishes — black, blue, white, and ceramic black. The ceramic black finish is priced slightly more expensive at 2,999 Yuan (RM1,916) with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. As for the rest, there are two versions — 6GB RAM + 64GB storage and 6GB RAM + 128GB storage, priced at 2,499 Yuan (RM1,597) and 2,899 Yuan (RM1,852), respectively.
