The information known currently is limited, and thus, all kinds of comparisons and analysis is not possible at present. I will also discuss, what kind of users should go for this smartphone, and also the possible areas, where Xiaomi could have improved, in their upcoming budget beast.

Xiaomi Mi 6X smartphone specs based early verdict
Mi 6X Design overview
Let’s first find out the physical dimensions of the smartphone, and then discuss the other details of it. As far as the physical dimensions of the Mi 6X are concerned, it is going to be 158.88×75.54×7.3 mm, which implies, it is going to be a slim device. The Mi 6X being a budget smartphone, will not come with notches, and that is something I love, as there are unnecessary notches all around. It will have short bezels on the top and bottom, just like other budget smartphones by Xiaomi. There will be a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, which is something I like. The Mi 6X will come with 5 color variants as of now, and they will be Black, Gold, Red, Pink, and Blue. Yes, if you are looking for a smartphone with some uncommon colors, go for Mi 6X.
SoC, RAM, and storage
Most users, looking for a budget smartphone by Xiaomi, go for the hardware and SoC, it offers. Thus, if you are planning to purchase the Mi 6X, know the specifications first. The Mi 6X will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, and will come with 3 storage and RAM variants, which are 4 GB RAM along with 32 GB internal storage, 6 GB RAM, along with 64 GB storage, and finally, the 6 GB RAM and the 128 GB internal storage variant. The prices of the three variants are still not known. The Snapdragon 660 have 8 Kryo cores and come with Adreno 512 GPU, which will no doubt offer great 3D performance. Thus, if you are going to purchase the Mi 6X for high-end gaming along with great multi-tasking, the Mi 6X will surely be the best friend for you within a budget.
Xiaomi Mi 6X Camera
Moving on to the camera segment, the Xiaomi Mi 6X smartphone features dual rear primary camera setup, having 20 MP and another likely to be a 12 MP camera. The camera sensors will possibly be Sony IMX486 for the 12 MP, and IMX376 for the 20 MP shooter. For selfie lovers, the Mi 6X will come with 20 MP secondary camera, which can also be helpful to make high-quality video calls. Another notable feature is that the secondary or the selfie camera will also come with a front-facing flash to get clearer selfies. I wish, Xiaomi doesn’t dispatch a torch in the Mi 6X, in the name of flash, as that will completely ruin the experience of taking selfies. The primary camera will be capable of recording videos at 4K, and thus, if you are looking for a high-end camera on your smartphone, the Mi 6X is surely not going to dissatisfy you.
Mi 6X Display and Screen
The display is an important feature of all smartphones nowadays, and Mi 6X is not going to dissatisfy those users, who want to get a great screen resolution and an optimistic display from their smartphone. The Mi 6X will come with a 5.99-inch FullHD+ screen, or 1080×2160 pixels, which will help you get the crispier quality of display at the time of playing games, or do some other tasks on the smartphone. There is no confirmation yet, about the display type, which means, it can either come with an IPS LCD display or an AMOLED display.
Xiaomi Mi 6X Software
The Xiaomi Mi 6X smartphone will come with Android 8.1 or Android Oreo out of the box, and there is every possibility, it will be upgradable to Android P. There are even some reports that the Mi 6X will also be the part of Android One initiative, which means, it will come with stock Android, and will even get regular updates and fixes, once they are launched by Google. I being the lover of stock Android, will surely be happy, if it really comes with stock Android. Another news is that the smartphone will be certified by TENAA in China.
Xiaomi Mi 6X smartphone Battery
Whether or not the Mi 6X is going to be the best daily driver for you, can be decided, by having a look at the battery. The Mi 6X is expected to be packed with a 2910 mAh battery, which can eventually run a day long, under normal usage condition. But, Xiaomi could have given a better battery with this budget device. Though the performance of the battery on Mi 6X is dependent on a number of other factors, and will also depend upon how the software will play with the battery.
This was all about the information available about the Xiaomi Mi 6X smartphone, as of now, before the launch. There is no confirmation about the sensors, which will be present in the device, or whether it will be VR ready. As far as the specifications on pen and paper is concerned, the specifications are really attractive. India at present is a competitive market for smartphones, and if Xiaomi could launch this product at a pocket-friendly price, it will surely capture the Indian market. Unless the price of this little beast is known, it will not be a smart idea to comment on any kind of improvements. But the only thing, Xiaomi could have improved, is the batter capacity.
I wish Mi 6X had at least 3500 mAh battery, and there was an 8 GB RAM variant. The 8 GB variant could have taken this device to a different level, along with such a powerful SoC. Another improvement, though the current state is not known, could be in the field of display, and I wish, Mi 6X come with an AMOLED or OLED display. If the 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage variant is priced less than Rs. 20,000, I am sure, it will rock the Indian market. Thus, if you are looking for a budget smartphone with close to premium specs, Mi 6X is surely going to be the best gadget for you in 2018.
