1. 4 Sided 3D curved Glass:
One of the important aspect of the Mi6 is the design and it now comes with new four-sided 3D glass feature which adds to the aesthetics of the device and gives a premium feel to the flagship. Mi 6’s sides are also made from stainless steel, which gives a beautiful high-gloss outline. While 3D curved glass is not a new feature, having a 4 sided 3D glass is definitely a new innovative feature to look forward.
The Snapdragon 835 is probably the most powerful chipset available as of now and it is made with 10nm process technology making it even superior. This is coupled with 6GB RAM making the Xiaomi Mi6, the most powerful device in the segment. With AnTuTu benchmark score of around 184292, performance should be one of the best aspects of the phone.
Xiaomi Mi6 comes with dual rear cameras. It has a 12MP wide angle + 12MP telephoto camera that allows you to have 2x lossless zoom. Mi 6 comes with portrait mode which captures depth of field, and facial features beautifully. The Mi 6 camera also comes with 4-axis OIS, which helps you take steady shots.
4. Splash Resistant:
Xiaomi Mi6 also adds a splash resistant feature, probably the first device form Xiaomi to have this. While splash resistance does not mean complete water resistance, all the openings in the phone are sealed properly including the SIM slot. While this feature is not as effective as IP68 certification in Samsung Galaxy S8, it is still a good feature to have in a flagship.
5. Under-glass fingerprint sensor:
The Xiaomi Mi6 comes with a fingerprint scanner placed on the front panel under the glass. The fingerprint scanner is located below the glass and uses Qualcomm’s new Sense ID based fingerprint scanning tech, which can unlock the device even if your finger is wet or oily.
6. Dual Speakers:
Xiaomi Mi6 also comes with dual speakers which gives you a more immersive experience when you’re watching videos. Also, if you are a music buff, then this is something to be really excited for.
