Finally we already know all the specifications and characteristics of the one of the most anticipated Chinese smartphone of the moment. Today we say goodbye to hundreds of leaks and rumors and we reveal all the details of the new Chinese flagship, the Xiaomi Mi 6.
We find the smartphone made of metal and glass, now with resistance to splashes. We see the return of the infrared sensor in the upper edge and the usual USB Type C to upload and transfer device data. The left side is reserved for the volume and lock buttons while on the right side there is the slot for inserting two SIM cards (nano) supported by the phone.
Its main highlight is the curved four-sided 3D glass that gives more rounded corners to the smartphone resembling the Honor 8 Pro and other Huawei terminals, something that is evident with the shiny appearance of its back cover.
The design of Xiaomi Mi6 emphasizes the double frontal camera, as well as almost nonexistent frames in both edges of the screen. A fingerprint sensor with ultrasonic technology, identical to that of Xiaomi Mi 5S, is integrated under the glass at the bottom of the phone.
The Xiaomi Mi 6 has a double speaker on the bottom and the upper speaker can also be activated when listening music, giving the feeling of having a stereo speaker. However this has repercussions on something that we have been warning, the loss of the 3.5mm jack connector for headphones.
At the moment we can see that the terminal can be purchased in blue, black and white, in addition to an exclusive version in silver and a variant called Xiaomi Mi6 Ceramic. Its dimensions are 145.17 x 70.49 x 7.45 mm and its weight is 168g (normal version) or 182g (ceramic version).

As for the overall set of features of the Xiaomi Mi6, all the rumors associated with the device are confirmed. We find expected specifications and a clear commitment of the Chinese firm to improve one of its usual weaknesses, the camera.
Its screen remains 5.15 inches FullHD with 600 nits of brightness but this time technologies are added to protect the user’s eyesight and reduce the damage caused by blue light. The screen density results in 428ppp and features a 1500: 1 contrast as well as 94.4% coverage of the NTSC.
