Design and Display
The Xiaomi Mi 6 shows off an elegant design, which is largely comparable to what we have seen in the past. It will be available in standard glass and ceramic models. The latter variant, complemented by tiny 18K gold accents, is more premium, but also heavier.
At 7.5 mm, the phone parades a somewhat svelte profile. Xiaomi Mi 6 offers a 5.15-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD (1080p) resolution. Although the screen should deliver spectacular viewing quality, Xiaomi could have provided its flagship device a higher resolution.
The Chinese company obviously equipped the Xiaomi Mi 6 to serve up high-quality images. You will find dual 12 megapixels shooters with dual tone, dual LED flash, OIS, and phase detection autofocus on the rear.
Turn the device around and you will find another 8MP sensor for selfies. The primary camera shoots 2160p videos while the selfie shooter captures 1080 videos, both at 30 fps.
