Xiaomi has announced the Mi 6X, a new phone for China. The phone sees Xiaomi start using 18: 9 screens in the middle of its range after the recent launch of the most affordable Redmi 5 line and the high-end Mi Mix 2S.
The Mi 6X has a resolution of 18: 9 2160 x 1080 LCD, a Snapdragon 660 processor, a dual camera configuration with a 20 megapixel main sensor, a 20 megapixel selfie camera with flash, a fingerprint sensor on the back, USB-C and without a headphone jack. It has a thickness of 7.3 mm, weighs 166 grams and comes in black, red, blue, gold and pink. Prices start at 1599 yuan, around $ 250 USD or 17,000 Indian rupees.
Although the 6X is focused on China, it could hint at an important future device for India and other major markets for Xiaomi. The Mi 5X last year finally became My A1 outside of China, marking the first Android One phone from Xiaomi and one that marked a turning point for the Google program, which previously targeted very low-end devices.
Could we see soon this 6X stock running Android, renamed as My A2, and sold anywhere in the world? It is very possible.
