Mi6 is all set to take the world by storm, yet again

The Chinese handset maker, Xiaomi is now all set to take the world by storm once again with its flagship and budget devices in this new year. The anticipation for its flagship device Mi6 and budget phablet Redmi Note 4 is pretty high this time around. The latter is all set to be announced at an event scheduled for January 19,2017, the former will be announced at the Mobile World Congress 2017. The wait and hype for the flagship device is much more than the budget lineup as the brand is expected to bring some serious high end features to the mid-range this time around. Here is a brief overview of the device for those who are holding on to their purchase for Mi6.

Why Should You buy?

Snapdragon 835: Xiaomi is known for equipping its flagship devices with cutting edge technology out there. This year, the brand will be launching its flagship with Octa-core Snapdrgon 835 processor. This SoC is the latest and best in the handset market as of now. You can expect the handset to perform like a champ and shatter some benchmark records.

Force touch display: Another high-end feature that Android users have been missing in their devices for a while now, is the force touch display, which is developed by Apple and is popularly known as 3D Touch. Xiaomi is expected to bring the technology to its upcoming flagship and with that, operating the device would become whole lot of easier and faster.

Dual camera module: One of the latest fads in the smartphone market right now is the dual camera module on the rear panel, which has been bought back by the Apple in its iPhone 7 Plus. Now, everyone from high end brands to budget segment are making devices flaunting the same. It only makes sense for Xiaomi, called as Apple of China, to come out with its own dual camera flagship. Xiaomi Mi6 is rumoured to be flaunting the same 12 Megapixels dual camera setup on the rear panel as the one on iPhone 7 Plus. Which automatically means that it is one of the best smartphone camera to be available.

Brilliant display: Xiaomi has equipped the flagship handset with a 5.1-inch display that comes with a resolution of Quad HD. This results in massive pixel density, leading to improved brightness, sharpness and daylight legibility. Moreover, the display will also come protected with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass for durability.

Why Should You Not buy?

Hybrid SIM slot: There really is not much to complain about the Mi6 if it indeed comes with these specs and at the speculated price. However, the only grouch that anyone could possible have with the handset is the Hybrid SIM slot. Which means they can either use dual SIM or single SIM and expandable storage but not dual SIM and microSD card together.

No 3.5 mm audio jack: Xiaomi has equipped the new handset with the latest USB Type-C port, which is now a standard on all flagships. However, the brand also did the unthinkable like Apple and got rid of the 3.5 mm audio jack in favor of the USB Type-C port. Which means that you cannot listen to audio and charge the handset at the same time, which is a big deal breaker for many users.

Any Alternative?

Motorola Moto Z Play: If the handset is indeed priced in the range of INR 25,000, Motorola Moto Z Play can be a suitable alternative to the handset. It comes with the support for same Moto Mods as its elder sibling. Moreover, it has impressive specifications and brand Motorola backing it up.
