Xiaomi Mi 6 is Set to be Unveiled on April 19th in Beijing
Xiaomi Mi 6 is one of the most anticipated smartphones of 2017 in China. The reason why Chinese tech fans are so highly enthusiastic about Xiaomi Mi 6 is because the manufacturer is based in China. Nonetheless, Xiaomi fans should be happy to know that Mi 6 will be officially unveiled on April 19th. This is quite surprising since rumors were pointing out to a sooner launch. However, it’s better late than never.
April 19th Release
Seeing that Weibo (Chinese Reddit) was filled with rumors regarding Mi 6’s launch date, Xiaomi decided to announce the official date so that fans won’t get confused. Xiaomi posted a picture of Beijing that included the number “6” and the launch date. We should mention that Mi 6 is going to be accompanied by Mi 6 Plus which is a more premium model.
Xiaomi has yet to unveil the smartphone’s official specs sheet list, but according to rumors the smartphone will ship with a 5.1 inch display that will offer a full HD pixel resolution of 1920 x 1080. On the other hand, the Plus model will feature a larger 5.7 inch QHD display. Even though these devices are different models, both of them are going to be built from glass and metal. In addition, both models will ship with a fingerprint sensor.
Rumor has it that Mi 6 and Mi 6 Plus will feature capacitive buttons for the Back, Home and Overview options. Also, the capacitive buttons can be remapped in the smartphone’s software so that they can activate different apps or functions.
In terms of hardware power, both smartphone models will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 CPU. If this proves to be true, Xiaomi’s smartphones are definitely going to be powerhouses. However, all that we know is still based on rumors and everything is subjective to change.
In the end, April 19th is not that far away and we can be sure that Xiaomi is going to generate huge amounts of profits if the rumors about Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 CPU prove to be true. In addition, the Chinese smartphone market is going to become even more competitive which will benefit customers because companies will be forced to reduce their prices.
