Xiaomi Mi 6X may come in 5 colours, launch set for April 25
Xiaomi looks set to launch the Mi 6X in China on April 25. Ahead of launch, promotional slides of the alleged Mi 6X have hit the internet seemingly confirming the range of colours the phone may be made available on launch. While its current breed of devices max out at 4, the Mi 6X may come in as many as 5 colour options. The Mi 6X, as per the leak, will be available in Cherry Pink, Flame Red, Sand Gold, Glacier Blue, and Black. That's the most for any Xiaomi phone to date. If it happens that is.
Rumour has it that the Mi 6X will come with a tweaked design and would look a lot like Xiaomi's Redmi Note 5 Pro. This means, the Mi 6X may also be a bezel-less phone, and since the Mi 5X packed in dual rear cameras something similar is expected from its successor as well. The images leaked and going around the internet point towards the same as well. On the inside, the Mi 6X may be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor although some reports suggest the phone may come with a Snapdragon 626 processor.
The Mi 6X is particularly interesting with regards to India since its predecessor, the Mi 5X, became the Mi A2 for this market. The Mi 6X, likewise, may end up becoming the Mi A2 for all we know. The Mi 6X may or may not be the Mi A2, but, many would be banking on it. Whatever be the case, we'll know soon enough.
In other news, Xiaomi has not discontinued the Mi A1 in India contrary to some ongoing reports. Xiaomi, in fact, has no immediate plans to pull the plug on its first Android One phone that took everyone by surprise when it was launched in September last year, the company has confirmed to India Today Tech. It's been long since we saw the Mi A1 in stock on certain platforms including Xiaomi's own Mi.com/in. That's probably a sign that Xiaomi isn't building as many Mi A1s now. But it surely isn't giving up on the Mi A1 just yet.
"Mi A1 is not discontinued in India and it will return for sale soon," a Xiaomi spokesperson said in an email to India Today Tech.
