New Xiaomi Mi 6X, all features and prices

A new member has just landed in Xiaomi’s already extensive catalog of mid-range smartphones. The Mi 6X has just been presented in China , and reaches the market to be at the top of the middle range android based modern design, cutting-edge specifications and a category photographic section

It has been almost a year since Xiaomi introduced the Mi 5X, phone that precedes this new Mi 6X, and that later would end up becoming the successful Mi A2, thanks to a collaboration of Xiaomi with Google. We do not know if this new My 6X will become a future My A2 with the passage of months; What we do know is that we are probably one of the most balanced phones with the best value for money in this first half of 2018.

Xiaomi Mi 6X, all the information

Repeating a known design

The leaks have made a dent in the presentation of this Mi 6X. So much, that there were hardly any surprises saved by the Chinese giant. One of the first aspects to come out uncovered about the Mi 6X was its aesthetic section, whose resemblance to other phones of the company is more than obvious.

We find a terminal made entirely of aluminum, whose front part houses a 5.99 inch large panel and 18: 9 format . It is a screen IPS Full HD + , whose screen frames have been significantly reduced, and the front reminds us of the Redmi Note 5 Pro presented several months ago.

If we travel to the back, made of metal, we come across a fingerprint reader located in the center , position used by Xiaomi in most of her latest phones. The dual camera, however, is located in the upper right corner, arranged vertically instead of horizontally as in the previous Mi 5X.

Other details to highlight, is the inclusion of a USB port type C on the back , which in addition to charging and transferring data, will be used to connect the headphones through the adapter included in the box, since The Mi 6X lacks a 3.5mm port. Nor will we enjoy water resistance, one of the features that Xiaomi still resists adopting in most of its devices.

A medium range of power thanks to the Snapdragon 660

The platform Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 will be responsible for giving life to the new king of the mid-range in the Xiaomi catalog. It is a chip of 12 nanometers and eight cores, which generates a maximum clock frequency of 2.2 GHz. Estro, added to the 4 or 6 GB of RAM with which the Mi 6X arrives, assures us an outstanding performance in any imaginable situation, and I am afraid that the lag and power losses will be a thing of the past with this model.

At the storage level, we will not miss space either, as we can find 64 or 128 GB expandable through microSD card. Unfortunately, we can not say the same about his battery, as the 2.910 mAh capacity it seems to us something scarce in a telephone of this size. We will have to trust in the efficiency of the processor signed by Qualcomm.

The terminal software will be based on Android 8.1 Oreo , the latest available version of the Google operating system. It will be personalized, though, by MIUI in its version 9.5, which among many other functions introduces navigation by gestures to interact with the system interface.

Two cameras that promise war

Perhaps the aspect in which Xiaomi has stopped most in the presentation, are the photographic capabilities of the device. Technically, we are talking about a Dual rear photographic system, consisting of two sensors, a main one of 20 megapixels f / 1,75 , and a secondary Sony IMX486 12 megapixel accompanied by an LED flash and focus by phase detection.

According to Xiaomi, a great effort has been devoted to improving the photographic section of the terminal, through different software-based systems that promise to improve the experience when taking photographs. One of the aspects that has received the most improvements is night photography, as well as background blur mode , which on this occasion takes advantage of artificial intelligence when detecting the edges of the object in the foreground.

It is also based on artificial intelligence the scene detection mode, thanks to which the camera is able to identify the situation, and optimize the parameters to obtain the perfect capture, after it has been taken.

At the time of selfies , the 20 megapixels come back on the scene thanks to the Sony IMX376 sensor, which promises to capture images in great detail and colorful portraits. Xiaomi, of course, has not forgotten to include his famous skin softening system, so popular among the Chinese public.
