Xiaomi's Mi 6X is confirmed to launch on April 25 at an event to be held in China.

In this short announcement, someone just couldn't wait any longer and leaked some Xiaomi Mi 6X tech-specs online from the box and confirms that it will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE processor instead of MediaTek's Helio P60 after all. This is quite an upgrade over the Mi 5X/Mi A1 which ran on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset. Armed with a 2,500mAh battery, the smartphone comes with connectivity options such as dual SIM card slots, 4G LTE with VoLTE support, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Global Positioning System. Xiaomi, in official teasers of the device, has revealed the key aspects of the design of the Mi 6X. The front camera is also shown to be having a 20-megapixel sensor. The box mentions that it comes with a USB Type-C to 3.5mm converter, so we can assume that Xiaomi has made a decision to remove the 3.5mm audio jack from the device. On the front, the device will bear a 5MP front camera. The colour options of the Xiaomi Mi 6X are Cherry Powder, Red Flame, Sand Gold, Glacier Blue and Black Stone.

Coming to the camera department, the Mi 6X will come with a rear dual camera setup consisting of a 20MP primary camera with f/2.0 aperture and an 8MP secondary camera with f/1.8 aperture for bokeh effect. The smartphone is expected to run the latest Android 8.1 Oreo. The phone will be 7.3mm thick and 165mm tall. Previous reports also have promised the current presence of 4GB/ 6GB of both 32GB and also RAM/ 64GB/ 128GB of storage.

The Xiaomi Redmi 5 which is also priced at Rs 7,999 for the base variant, comes with an HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio, a better Snapdragon 450 SoC, along with a bigger 3,300mAh battery making it a value for money proposition.
