The home country will be receving the Xiaomi Mi 6X phone on April 19.

So, as the images above show, the Mi 6X has a design similar to the Redmi Note 5 Pro with the only difference being the design of Antenna lines on the rear.

As far as the specifications of Redmi Note 5 are concerned it features a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display with a screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels, a colour contrast ratio of 1000:1 and 450-nits brightness. The handset's firmware shows msm8953, which means Redmi S2 will have Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset under the hood. However, the exact size of its display is not available yet. The Xiaomi Redi Note 5 Pro has plastic on top and bottom for the Antenna lines, but the Mi 6X has a full metal body with Antenna lines similar to the Mi 5X or Mi A1 of past year. Three variants are rumored for this release, including one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It's still unknown whether the new smartphone will have microSD card support or not, but given Xiaomi's track record, we can expect a hybrid solution mostly. In addition to revealing the colors of the Mi 6X, Xiaomi's post also throws light on a number of other features which have been previously leaked. There could be 32 GB model with 3 GB of RAM.


The firmware mentions that the Xiaomi Redmi S2 will launch in India and China. The device will ship with a proven processor, dual cameras and face unlock feature, which may prove to be a USP for Redmi S2 in the budget segment.

Redmi S2 is a budget Xiaomi smartphone but will come with a dual rear camera setup. As for the specs, the smartphone may either include a 12-megapixel Sony IMX486 or 12-megapixel OmniVision OV12A10 sensor as the primary sensor. On the front panel, the Redmi S2 is expected to come packed with a single camera set up with a 5-megapixel Samsung S5K5E8 sensor. Even though the new MIUI 9.5 is associated with Android Oreo, the devices in question aren't getting Oreo, rather, the update only brings Xiaomi-made changes and updates based on Nougat 7.1. At present, there is no information available on the launch date and pricing of Redmi S2.

The Mi A2 is said to have slightly lower capacity than the outgoing model, with a 2910 mAh battery powering the smartphone.
