A new silver color variant of the popular Xiaomi Mi 6 may be on the way if the latest news reports are to be believed. Only yesterday, the Chinese smartphone giant had launched the Xiaomi Mi 5X, a very decent device set to start shipping from August 1. At the same event, Xiaomi announced the Xiaomi Mi 6 Mercury Silver Edition. The new device will come for 3999 Yuan or just over Rs 38,000 and will start shipping from August 3.
Xiaomi Mi 6 Mercury Silver Edition Specs and Features
The new edition of the Mi 6 is similar to the traditional Xiaomi Mi 6, which is Xiaomi‘s flagship device. The specs and features of the device are, like all other flagships, excellent. On board is a four-sided 3D glass design while we have appreciated the 5.15-inch Full HD 1080p display. The phone’s front and rear are constructed of glass separated by a stainless steel frame.
At the heart of the device is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, a 64-bit octa-core processor which has been clocked at a lightning fast 2.45GHz. This processor is paired with the Adreno 540 GPU, besides 6GB of RAM. The native or internal storage capacity is 128GB while the Xiaomi Mi 6 runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system. Xiaomi’s proprietary MIUI 8 runs atop the Nougat OS.
The juice is provided by the 3350mAh battery, specially designed for the MIUI 8, meaning that it can adapt to the usage and can last a full day of heavy use. The Xiaomi Mi 6 also has excellent cameras and optics. The rear dual camera setup has two 12-megapixel cameras, one with a wide-angle lens and 4-axis Optical Image Stabilization or OIS while there is another 12-megapixel camera with a telephoto lens which can provide 2x lossless zoom. The front snapper has an 8-megapixel camera for better selfies and video calling. All of these features will make it to the Xiaomi Mi 6 Mercury Silver Edition as well.
