There is nothing new to say about Xiaomi's popularity in India. The company offers smartphones with impressive specifications at cheap price and hence it's not surprising to see more takers of its products in emerging and price-sensitive markets. The centre of attraction for Xiaomi fans at the moment is the recently unveiled Mi 6.
The Xiaomi Mi 6 is set to hit the stores on April 28 in select regions but it may take some time to expand to some countries, including India. Now, it's been reported that the device will be launched in India only by the end of May. Mi fans in the country could be left disappointed by the late launch as they have been waiting eagerly for its release.
However, it may be noted that we are yet to know the official release date of the Xiaomi Mi 6 in India.
The Mi 6 6GB RAM+64GB ROM model is priced at 2,499 Yuan (around Rs 25,000 / $363) and the 6GB RAM+128GB ROM model at 2,899 Yuan (around Rs 29,000 / $421). However, it is reported that the former variant will be priced at Rs 26,999 and the higher-end model will not come to India.
The Xiaomi Mi 6 sports a 5.15-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1,080x1,920 pixels (428 ppi pixel density), powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, and runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system.
The device has a dual 12 MP main cameras – one with f/1.8 aperture, 27mm lens, OIS 4-axis, and the other with 52mm lens and f/2.6 aperture — phase detection autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash, 1/2.9" sensor size, 1.25 µm @ 27mm and 1.0 µm @ 52mm pixel size, an 8Mo front-snapper and a 3,350mAh battery with Fast battery charging (Quick Charge 3.0).
