Getting more than a fair revenue in the first half of the year, Xiaomi has planned for another launch of its mobile phone series this year. Although, there were enough rumors specifying the launch of the phone series to be the Mi 6, a 13-second teaser posted by a user on Weibo has given a hint about upcoming Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus smartphone. At least the specifications of the phone stated there say that. It was said that the launch would happen on April 19 along with flagship Mi 6, which did not take place due to varied reasons as per reports. However, now the launch of the device is speculated to be on July 11, Tuesday, this week.
The phone as per the teaser shown is supposed to be powered by a Snapdragon 800-series SoC and this particular series of the phone is expected with Snapdragon 835 SoC. This series would come with the 4,000 mAh battery as per reports and has a fast charging support.
In terms of optics, there is a 22-megapixel rear facing camera supporting 4K recording. Mi 6 Plus is said to include Infrared (IR) blaster, NFC support, 4G VoLTE connectivity, and a USB Type-C port, including the rear glass. Other features of the phone are expected to include 6 GB DDR4 RAM, two internal storage variants consisting of 64 GB or 128 GB and UFS storage.
The product in the teaser sports a dual rear camera placed horizontally on the top-left along with dual-LED flash next to the camera. Xiaomi will stick with the physical home button embedded with a fingerprint sensor for the Mi 6 Plus, as there is no fingerprint sensor in the rear panel. The phone also sports a 5.7-inch FHD or QHD display and it’s expected to run MIUI 8 with Android Nougat 7.1.1.
It’s also rumored that it will join Mi MIX 2 smartphone at launch on July 11. This Mi Mix successor is said to sport a large bezel-less 6.4-inch QHD display with 1440×2540 pixel resolution, 19-megapixel rear camera, and a 13-megapixel camera at the front.
