Many of you passed on Xiaomi Mi6 because it was too small, for those of you Xiaomi is doing a bigger and better Xiaomi Mi6 Plus phone to fight against OnePlus 5.
While OPPO Find 9, Vivo Xplay7, Mi Note 3 and Honor Magic 2 are nowhere to be seen, Xiaomi is taking full advantage to capture the Big Display performance enthusiasts market using Mi6 Plus.
Originally supposed to debut in June Mi6’s bigger brother is arriving late to the party. The main culprit is actually Qualcomm and Snapdragon 835. Battling with chip shortages, because of high demand Mi6 Plus had to wait. Now confirmed to operate using Snapdragon 836. Most noteworthy, battery life will increase thanks to the 4050mAh battery. Compared to Mi6, Mi6 Plus will be using a larger 5.7-inch display. We are hoping for an increase in resolution or maybe 18:9 infinity display rival?
Could Xiaomi have a huge Ace up their sleeves?
Xiaomi Mi6 Plus RAM and Storage options also target OnePlus 5 with 6GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB options available at launch. To summarise Mi6 Plus is packing a 5.7-inch screen with Snapdragon 836, larger 4050mAh battery and at least 6/128GB memory.
Sources claim Mi6 Plus will be the first MIUI9 released phone by Xiaomi. Xiaomi Mi6 Plus back cameras will use the same regular+telephoto sensors like Mi6. With time to tweak the sensors and maybe adding better lenses, Mi6 Plus could be a better camera phone. I believe Xiaomi will target a much better front camera sensor, so we could be seeing the first 4 camera phone by Xiaomi.
