Xiaomi unveiled its newest flagship Mi 6 today, showcasing a sleek and beautiful device powered by Qualcomm’s next-generation Snapdragon 835 platform with 6GB RAM and up to 128GB storage. Priced from RMB 2,499, Mi 6 is the first device powered by Snapdragon 835 to debut in China. It will be available starting 28 April on Mi.com and in all 72 Mi Home stores in China, and will make its way to selected global markets at a later date.
Mi 6 underscores Xiaomi’s commitment to being at the forefront of technological innovation and making these innovations affordable to the widest possible range of consumers. With the use of Snapdragon 835 based on the cutting-edge 10nm process, Mi 6 once again raises the bar for smartphone performance. An optical zoom dual camera setup means Mi 6 is able to take clearer photos of distant subjects, and portrait shots have an unparalleled background blur effect.
Precisely crafted like a watch, Mi 6 seamlessly integrates four-sided 3D curved glass and a stainless steel frame. It is available in three colours (Black, White and Blue) as well as two special editions: Ceramic and Silver.
Xiaomi founder and CEO Lei Jun said: “Mi 6 is the culmination of our seven years of research and development in the smartphone industry, and represents the pinnacle of our journey thus far. Besides being a performance beast that is powered by Snapdragon 835, Mi 6 also demonstrates how we are constantly refining our design and pushing the boundaries of materials technology with the use of four-sided 3D curved glass and ceramic. I’m really excited to join our Mi fans today to introduce Mi 6, which once again defies price expectations, and I’m looking forward to unveiling even more amazing products in the year to come.” bakırköy escort
