The heat is up for the Xiaomi April 25 event. Earlier, Xiaomi teased us for something that’s worth noting on the said event but haven’t done so much of what the company is coming out with. Thankfully some of us are just keen to scope as much information that we can that soon than later, we seem to have found out what Xioami is really preparing for us. However those ideas and speculations were still hanging by a thread, more like a cobweb if you’d picture it and the event location, well not that much until today.
Xiaomi itself now finally sent an official poster for the April 25th event and the venue for the said event is set to be in Wuhan, a pretty significant place where Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun got his Computer Science degree back in 1991. And the device that would be the star in the event is no other than the Mi 6X, a successor to the successful Mi 5X from last year and most probably the twin brother of the rumored second generation Android One device from Xiaomi.
From the official teaser, the Xiaomi Mi 6X will sport a dual camera setup with the main sensor being a 20 Megapixel unit or that it could even be both. Rumors also suggest that it would still be focussed as one of the best imaging-centric devices in its segment. Other reported specs of the Mi 6X includes a 5.99-inch display with a Full-HD+ resolution and obviously this will have a tall screen with an 18:9 Aspect Ratio.
Xiaomi have not delved into specifics about the Mi 6X but rumors suggests that it will be powered by a Snapdragon 626 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. What maybe, just maybe the most underwhelming rumors about the Mi 6x is that it is said that it will only have a 2,910 mAh battery, if that’s the case then, this will be a mixed bag of upgrades and downgrade of some sort.
What really is obvious from here is that the handset will run the company’s proprietary MIUI 9.x interface while its future Android One sibling which more and more people are suggesting that it will be the Mi A2 will run on stock Android. The latter detail though isn’t confirmed just yet, so it should be taken as a grain of salt until Xiaomi confirms and campaign for it later this year.
