After Samsung revealed that the company is planning on selling its flagship smartphone with impressive 6 GB RAM in China, few people might have raised their eyebrows as such RAM capacity isn’t really necessary for the Smartphones unless you are a freak of nature who uses heavy multitasking. Even then, 6GB RAM could be too much. However, only if that was case.
Xiaomi has unveiled its 2017 flagship model Mi6 which packs almost everything you want to have in your smartphone. The company is set to start selling the model for $360 in China later this month before offering the smartphone in other countries.
The latest Xiaomi smartphone features 6GB of RAM, minimum 64GB of internal storage along with Snapdragon 835 processor. In addition to this, the model also features dual rear cameras with one 12MP wide-angle lens and one 12MP telephoto lens that lets you take shots using the lossless 2X optical zoom feature. In order to protect the device from accidental splash, the smartphone also has a splash resistant feature.
While these features are pretty solid, the Xiaomi Mi6 falls little bit behind as it features 1920 x 1080 pixel screen while other flagship smartphones contains higher screen resolution. However, the smartphone might make up for its low resolution with 3350 mAh battery which will last more than the average flagship smartphone. Moreover, you can adjust the display to meet your need since the brightness can be selected between one to 600 nits. Apart from this, you might notice the dropped 3.5 mm traditional headphone jack in case you are a bigtime fan of the traditional headphones.
Pricing for the models start at $360 for the 6GB RAM/64GB storage and 6GBRAM/128GB storage will require you to spend $420. If you take a look at the design though, the model is hardly revolutionary given that we have seen similar design for a long period of time. However, in such price range, you might not worry about the design so much when you can get so much performance out of the device. However, it’ll be worthwhile to see how the device performs at the long run as more often than not these smartphones fail to deliver the promised performance.
