|Xiaomi Mi 6 Now Official; Dual Rear Camera, Snapdragon 835 Chipset and 6GB RAM|
Xiaomi has officially launched its much-awaited Mi 6 flagship device, and it doesn't disappoint, as most of the rumors pertaining to its chipset and cameras came out true.
The Mi 6 indeed runs on Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 octa-core chipset along with a generous 6GB of RAM and default 64GB of internal storage. There's no slot for a microSD card, but a 128GB variant is available if you need more storage space.
Apart from its powerful processor, Xiaomi's latest flagship device flaunts a dual camera setup. It comes with two 12-megapixel cameras on the back with phase detection autofocus and dual LED flash, while on the front is the 8-megapixel selfie camera.

In terms of design, the Mi 6 also thrives with what the company now calls the Aligned Design Concept. It has curved glass on both the front and back and a stainless steel frame in between, with a familiar 5.15-inch Full HD display.
Interestingly, Xiaomi ditched the 3.55mm audio jack on the Mi 6 similar to the iPhone 7. Instead, there go the stereo speakers and it is now splash-resistant.
The Mi 6 runs on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat with MIUI 8.0 on top. And, powering this device is a decent 3350mAh non-removable battery.
