Xiaomi Mi 6X (or Mi A2) and Xiaomi Mi7 has been a part of multiple leaks in the past and has also stopped by at TENAA, China’s telecom regulatory for certification. While some of the specifications were detailed by the listing, a leak this week claimed that Mi 6X will be powered by MediaTek Helio P60 SoC, an octa-core chipset with four Cortex A73 cores similar to Snapdragon 835. However, it fails against Snapdragon 835 with Mali-G73 MP3 GPU.

The phone should be about the same size as the Mi MIX 2S given that it will have a 5.99” screen. The 2,910 mAh battery is a bit of a downgrade, though, while the memory setup remains the same – 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage.

In many ways, the smartphone resembles the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, It is expected to have a dual rear camera setup - featuring a 20-megapixel primary image sensor with an f/2.0 aperture on top, and an 8-megapixel secondary sensor with an f/1.8 aperture. On the front, the smartphone is rumoured to have a 20-megapixel image sensor with an f/2.0 aperture on top. It has also been mentioned the past that unlike many of the new mid-range options, the Mi 6X is not likely to come with a notch design.
