The successor of the Xiaomi Mi 5X already popped up on TENAA with plenty of specs. While some of them are expected, like a tall screen and dual-cam setup on the back, today a new leak on the Mi 6X suggested the chipset would be the not-so-popular Snapdragon 626.
The Xiaomi Mi 6X will have a 5.99 IPS LCD panel with Full HD+ resolution. The SoC, also seen in recently announced vivo V9 or the modular Moto Z2 Play, is a minor upgrade over the Snapdragon 625. Its eight CPU cores are still Cortex-A53, but this time they can reach clocking speed of 2.2 GHz, while the GPU remains Adreno 506.
The leaked spec sheet says storage is 4 GB + 64 GB, while the dual camera will have 20 MP + 8 MP setup, the latter with a relatively big aperture of f/1.8. Selfie snapper will be a 20 MP F/2.0 unit. The OS is listed as Android Oreo 8.1 – the Mi 6X is most likely to have MIUI 9.5 with limited Google services on top, while the global A2 should have stock Android.
