Xiaomi is doing what they do best yet again and has launched a brand new mid-range smartphone, called the Mi 5X, that’s honing in on two big features — its camera and the desire to be trendy. Well, that and a killer price tag.
If you’ve been eyeing for an affordable compact flagship smartphone, the wait could be finally over. Xiaomi has just teased a new product launch in Malaysia and it appears to be a dual-camera smartphone. This is likely to be their Xiaomi Mi 6 that was introduced in China 3 months ago.
UPDATE: The new device is a special edition of the Mi Note 2.
The Xiaomi Mi 6 packs a lot of hardware in a smaller 5.15″ form factor. It has everything you would expect from a flagship like a Snapdragon 835 processor along with 6GB of RAM as standard across all models.
For those who want something bigger, Xiaomi appears to be releasing an upsized model tomorrow which could be called the Mi 6 Plus.
Xiaomi has produced a couple of impressive value for money earphones that sound better than the ones that come with your phone. With several smartphones going jack-less including Xiaomi’s very own Mi 6 flagship, the Chinese brand has finally introduced its first ever USB Type-C in-ear headphones.
Not only it supports the new interface, Xiaomi has also added active noise cancellation for a better music experience.
The most affordable Snapdragon 835 powered flagship smartphone appears to be coming to Malaysia real soon. The Xiaomi Mi 6, which was launched exactly a month ago has finally passed our local certification.
UPDATE: Xiaomi Malaysia opens pre-order for Mi 6 and Mi Max 2.
Can’t wait for Mi Malaysia? The latest Xiaomi Mi 6 smartphone is now available in Malaysia through our local grey importers. This is currently the best spec smartphone you can get in a compact 5.15″ form factor.
Xiaomi is always known for making smartphones with the best specs at an unbeatable price. With the Mi 6, this trend continues and Xiaomi is taking a step further by attempting to make a phone that looks and feels more expensive.
Xiaomi clearly isn’t cutting any corners when it comes to raw specs. The Mi 6 runs on a 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and all variants will get 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM. But is it all good? Read on for our first impressions of Xiaomi’s new flagship smartphone for 2017.
