Yesterday, the official MIUI Weibo account announced that there will be news released this morning, and the following morning, the official Weibo account of Xiaomi mobile announced that there will be a Xiaomi Mi mobile phone product launch at Wuhan University on April 25. The star of the show is likely to be the Mi 6X that was in the news a while back.
The location choice of the press conference likely stems from Lei Jun’s deep connections to his alma mater, as Lei Jun is a Wuhan University graduate. “May you venture for half your life, and still return as a youth” are the words written on the poster shared on Xiaomi’s official Weibo account. In addition to the Mi 6X, there will likely be other new products released at the press conference worthy of anticipation as well.
The specifications of the Xiaomi Mi 6X is already available through the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. It has a model number of M1804D2SE/M1804D2SC, a CPU of 2.2 GHz, as well as a maximum 6GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. This configuration is a slight upgrade to the Redmi Note 5. On the front is a Sony IMX 376 camera with a 20MP sensor; on the back are Sony IMX 486 and Sony IMX 376 dual cameras with 12MP and 20MP sensors respectively.
