Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun finally confirmed during the company’s live stream that they working on its flagship smartphone named as Mi 6 and all set to unveil it next month. The news fits with my previous rumors that Xiaomi will unveil its new device on  April 11, 2017.

Xiaomi Mi 6 Coming Next Month

The previous rumor about Xiaomi Mi 6 reveals that the device will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and fingerprint sensor. But fingerprint sensor was not visible on the leaked photos of the Mi 6 which hit the web a few days ago. So chances are high that the Xiaomi may embed the fingerprint sensor under the display.

Xiaomi Mi 6 front photos

Another leaked photos of Xiaomi Mi 6 appear on the web with a bezel-less beautiful front and vertical dual camera setup. It is not featuring curved display similar to the one in Samsung Galaxy S8, but still, it looks beautiful. The basic sensors for the device are placed on the top side accompanied with the front camera. On the right side, you can see the Power and Volume Up| Down buttons.

Xiaomi Mi 6 back photos

At the back side of the device, there is a dual camera setup arranged vertically. In previously leaked photos, the same was arranges horizontally, so definitely this is making things little confusing and interesting.

Regarding specification of the Mi 6, there is not much information available, but the device is expected to have some interesting features like Iris recognition, Water resistance, and Wireless charging. Read more about the features in my previous rumor about Xiaomi Mi Leaked Features

Apart from Iris Scanner, the Xiaomi flagship device expected to have a ceramic body similar to what the Mi Mix and Mi 5 have. The Ceramic glass will provide extra premium and sleeker look to the Xiaomi Mi 6. Though the process of producing Ceramic glass is very slow and maybe due to this reason Xiaomi fans may encounter scarcity of the upcoming device. But it will be featured on the top most Xiaomi models. Xiaomi flagship device also talked to come with a colorful body so chances are high that we get a metal clad variant too.

Xiaomi Mi 6 Features Leaked: Ceramic Body | Iris recognition | Waterproof | Wireless charging

Mi 6 also rumored to be waterproof. Now what that means is that the Xiaomi Mi 6 charging ports will be completely covered up. The company will able to do that by making the Xiaomi Mi 6 charge wirelessly. Wireless charging is another interesting feature which is rumored for Mi 6. Even I’m not sure if the device will be packed with a wired charging feature or not.
