Xiaomi to offer more Android One devices in the future

Xiaomi to offer more Android One devices in the future

Much like the current trend, the new Mi 6X comes with 18:9 aspect ratio. The Mi 6X does have an IR blaster. Also, the Mi 6X is the cheapest smartphone with Snapdragon 660 chipset. It runs MIUI 9.5 out-of-the-box, based on Android Oreo 8.1. On the basis of our experience with the Nokia 7 plus, the 6GB RAM variant of the phone is likely to offer smooth performance. A 6/64GB configuration fetches 1,799 yuan ($285), while the same RAM count combined with twice the local digital hoarding room will set you back CNY 1,999, or $315.

It is priced affordably, but the Mi 6X doesn't compromise on connectivity options and sensors. The Mi 6X/ Mi A2 is also the second smartphone by the company to come pre-installed with the new Xiao AI. The Xiaomi 6X will be made out of metal, as you can see in the provided video, while the phone will sport a dual camera setup and a rear-facing fingerprint scanner. With AI onboard, the Sony IMX376 sensor with f/2.0 aperture can capture unbelievable selfie shots by identifying 12 kinds of self-portrait scenes.

In terms of optics, the Redmi Note 5 is equipped with a 12-megapixel rear camera sensor with f/2.2 aperture, PDAF (Phase Detection Autofocus), EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) and an LED flash. And, it comes with lots and lots of artificial intelligence. On the front, it has a 20MP AI-powered Sony IMX376 sensor.

Coming to the camera department, Mi 6X sports 12MP+20MP dual cameras at the back. It's powered by a 3010mAh battery, which is slightly smaller than the 3080mAh battery of the Mi 5X/A1, but significantly smaller than the 4000mAh battery of the Redmi Note 5 Pro. What we understood when the Mi A1 launched was that A1 stood for Android One, so what will they call the successor?

So if you are interested to get your hands on the Redmi Note 5, don't miss the sale tonight.

While the 3GB version comes at a price of Rs 9,999, the 4GB version will cost Rs 2,000 more.

The Xiaomi Mi 6X was launched today in several color options that include - Black, Gold, Red, Blue and Pink. That's the most for any Xiaomi phone to date. The Mi 6X will also have a face recognition feature to unlock the phone. The expectation is that Mi 6X could launch in India as a flagship offering under the Mi A2 name.

Xiaomi's Mi A1 was quite a departure from then line-up of Redmi series. In India, the only phone to be powered by the Snapdragon 660 right now, is the Nokia 7 Plus and that phone costs nearly Rs 26,000.
