Xiaomi Finally Brings Dual-Cam Setup to Its Lead Flagship with Mi 6

April 22, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Xiaomi has officially taken the wraps off its Mi 6 flagship, and as expected the Chinese manufacturer have kept upgraded many of its hardware elements to keep it up to date. The most highlighted ones among the new additions are the dual-camera setup and the chipset it houses.

Xiaomi has introduced the dual-cam setup with Redmi Note Pro, instead of having it launched on a flagship series. A change was witnessed last year with the launch of Mi Note 2 device last year, and it has become complete with the addition of dual 12 MP sensors on the rear side of the Mi 6.

The setup will work similar to iPhones and other phones in the market, i.e. creating a fake depth-of-field effect to produce quality images. The wide-angle camera lens will also offer 2x optical zoom.

Besides, Mi 6 will also be the second device available in market to feature the Snapdragon 835 SoC when it gets released on April 29. Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus were the devices that first housed the advanced SoC from Qualcomm. While Sony too has revealed the chipset for its Xperia XZ Premium, it will be coming out to the market only at a later point.

The chipset will be paired with a RAM of 6GB and storage of 64 GB. Other specs include a heavy battery of 3350 mAh, 5.15 Full HD display, USB-C port, stereo speakers and NFC support. Along with the upgrades, Xiaomi has made one noticeable omission: the support for a headphone jack.

The base model is priced at $365 (2499 yuan), and there’s also a 128 GB version that will retail at a higher price point of $420(2899 yuan). Mi 6 will also be available in a flashy ceramic version that will retail at $435 (2999 yuan). The latter will also sport gold camera rims of 18-karat.
