Xiaomi has launched a lot of smartphones in the first three months of 2018 and will add another to its lineup in April. The Chinese smartphone maker will unveil the Xiaomi Mi 6X in China on the 25th of April. Xiaomi, in official teasers of the device, has revealed the key aspects of the design of the Mi 6X.

According to the leaked image, the Xiaomi Mi 6X will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset. This is quite an upgrade over the Mi 5X/Mi A1 which ran on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset. Interestingly, the Mi 6X will not have a 3.5mm headphone jack and instead retail with a USB C to 3.5mm dongle. To the front of the smartphone will be a 20MP camera with AI software like Beautify.

The device has a dual 20MP and a 12MP sensor. However, the exact implementation of this dual camera setup is yet to be known. The front-facing camera is likely to support Face Unlock, like the Redmi Note 5 Pro. The Mi 6X will be powered by a 2910 mAh battery and support Fast Charging via a USB C port, as confirmed by the packaging.
In a recent teaser, we also learned that the Xiaomi Mi 6X will be available in a lot of colour variants. The Mi 6X will be available in Red, Gold, Rose Gold, Black and Blue colour variants. How many of these will make their way to the Indian shores is yet to be seen. The Xiaomi Mi 6X could be launched in India as the Mi A1 (2018) or the Mi A2. However, nothing is confirmed for now and the company might announce its global availability at the launch event.
