Xiaomi Mi 6 with 5.15 inch full HD display and 12 MP dual rear camera setup unveiled

After several leaks and teasers, Xiaomi has finally officially unveiled its 2017 flagship – the Xiaomi Mi 6 with power-packed features.


Xiaomi has announced the launch of the Xiaomi Mi 6, which is the company flagship offering powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, making it the first smartphone out of China to use the powerful processor.

While Xiaomi is known to offer cutting edge hardware at affordable pricing, this time the company took it a step ahead by also focusing on design and build quality. The Xiaomi Mi 6 has four-sided curved 3D glass with a stainless steel frame. The company has implemented the new Aligned Design Concept which keeps the controls, the SIM tray and the antenna lines aligned.
