Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has finally launched the much-awaited flagship of the year Xiaomi Mi 6 in China. Mi 6 comes with top of the line hardware embedded in a dazzling glass body. While other flagships like Galaxy S8, LG G6, etc., are boasting large screens, Mi 6 comes with a relatively small screen, 5.15-inches.

To minimize the overall footprint of the phone, Xiaomi ditched 3.5mm audio jack to audio over USB Type-C port. However, Xiaomi incorporated stereo speakers in Mi6. Unlike other flagships in the market, the basic variant of Mi 6 also comes with 6GB RAM. Unfortunately, Xiaomi is yet to embrace water/ dust resistance on its flagship.

Mi 6 comes with a 5.15-inch IPS LCD Full HD (1080 x 1920 pixels) screen with a pixel density of 428ppi. The screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 4 on the top. Under to hood, it is powered by a 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core chipset with custom Kyro cores paired with Adreno 540 GPU. In the storage segment, it packs 6GB LPDDR4 RAM and 64/ 128GB internal storage. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box with Xiaomi's custom software layer MIUI on the top.

On the camera front, Mi6 houses a dual-camera: a 12MP sensor with standard wide-angle lens and a 12MP sensor with a telephoto lens. The rear camera is assisted by a PDAF and dual-tone LED flash. 4-axis OIS which was first introduced on Mi5 makes its way back on to the Mi6's camera. It features an 8MP selfie snapper.

A non-removable 3350mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 4.0 fuels Mi6. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, 2G, 3G, 4G LTE, GPS, NFC, USB Type-C, etc. A under-glass fingerprint sensor is encapsulated in the home button. Other sensors onboard include an accelerometer, gyro, proximity, and compass.
