Mi 6X, which is Xiaomi’s latest upcoming smartphone, has been officially launched in China today. The company hosted an event in the city of Wuhan, and had a livestream for the event as well. Mi 6X is the new version of the older Mi 5X, which was launched as Mi A1 in India and other global markets.
Mi A1 ran stock Android, though the camera app was from Xiaomi itself. The smartphone is assured of two years of Android updates and the Mi A1 has already been upgraded to Android Oreo in India. The Mi A1 was launched at Rs 14,999 and while the phone is out of stock in India, the company insists it has not been discontinued. In contrast, the Mi 6X is already being referred to as Mi A2 in India, even though the company has not yet confirmed if it will launch the phone in India.
Mi 6X features a newer 18:9 aspect ratio display coupled with the newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor. The highest variant of the Mi 6X comes with 6GB RAM, 128GB storage and the rear camera is 12MP+20MP, while the front camera is 20MP.
