Xiaomi Mi 6, the company’s flagship for 2017 is expected to be announced next month, but ahead of official introduction speculations on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo talk about a possibility of a dual-camera setup equipped on the phone. These rumors are currently circuiting around some images containing sketches of a Xioami-branded phone that sports two cameras on the rear. The featured design on these drawings, especially the cameras, resembles that of Apple’s last year’s iPhone 7 Plus.
We can fearlessly say that the pictures display an iPhone 7 Plus sketch with mi branding. The only thing besides the branding that distinguishes this unverified device from the iPhone 7 Plus is the placement of power and volume buttons.
Xiaomi Mi 6 remains to be anonymous even nearly a month ahead of launch. It is expected to share the same size its predecessor, Xiaomi Mi 5. A 5.15-inch of size, but this time to be having a superior QHD display with 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution. It is also rumored to be running the top-notch Snapdragon 835 mobile chipset and to have versions with up to 6GB of RAM.
While the possibility of a dual-camera Xiaomi Mi 6 phone persists, it would not be the first Xiaomi phone to have such feature. The Chinese giant has one device with such feature, and it is the 5.5-inch Redmi Pro. The dual cameras on the Xiaomi Redmi Pro are positioned vertically on the back of the device and are separated by the dual-tone LED flash.
We should know that Chinese leakers sometimes share misguiding information labeled as leaks just weeks before products go official. It happened with the Huawei P10 Plus, it was rumored to be having the dual-edge curved display, QHD resolution, and even there were claims of it featuring an Iris scanner and fingerprint on both sides. There even were photoshopped press renders of the Huawei flagship that gave legitimacy to such fake news.
So the best way to not be disappointed with the original device is to take these rumors and leaks with a grain of salt and wait for April 16 when Xiaomi Mi 6 will be officially announced.
