Although the Galaxy S8+ won't sport a dual rear camera setup which many of us were hoping to see, it seems like dual camera is the order of the year for smartphones in 2017. We have already seen the LG G6 launch with two lenses on its back and now the latest renders from a Chinese source on Weibo seem to be indicating that the Mi 6 too will have a similar setup. Take a look at the render above in all white.


If the rumors are to be believed, then what we are looking at here is the Mi 6 Plus, which is larger than the regular Mi 6. However, since there is nothing to indicate that this isn't the regular Mi 6, it could also be that both variants will be sporting the 12-mp/20-MP sensor combos at their backs. Check out the rumoured spec sheet of the Mi 6 range from Xiaomi below.


1440 x 2560 pixels QHD IPS LCD display
Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 SoC

A photo has been leaked online that shows a phone sporting a display that's not curved on the sides but right at the centre. The concave design may remind one of the LG G Flex, but this one is a Xiaomi. It looks like the Chinese brand has recently decided to explore all aspects of a smartphone's display. The beautiful Mi Mix was not only the first true bezel-less phone of the year, but it also sold faster than any phone ever did in China. The Mi Note 2 was unveiled at nearly the same time and it was the company's first phone to feature a dual curved panel. The Mi Note 2 took 50-seconds before going out of stock during its first sale.


As you can imagine Xiaomi's two experiments went very well for them and therefore, it would be quite interesting to see how this concave design fares, when and if it comes out. The image was spotted by GizmoChina on Weibo and from what we can see here, it's running on the Chinese version of the MIUI. As far as we can tell, the curve is limited to the centre of the phone only, as no curved edges can be seen in the picture.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix is a "concept" phone that you will actually be able to buy from November 4, provided you live in China. The ¥3,499/¥3,999 ($515/590 approximately) price tags seem almost underpriced, considering the kind of hardware and innovation it brings with it. The 6.4-inch Full HD display in front of the device nearly has no bezel with a screen-to-body ratio of 91.3%, something that was only a concept till now. The only bezel it actually has is at the bottom of the display, which houses an 8-mp selfie cam.


However, it would be unjust to judge the Mi Mix based solely on the beautiful all screen display, without taking into consideration the fact that it has removed most traditional sensors, as well as the microphone for phone calls! Yes, the Mi Mix senses proximity via ultrasound and a piezoelectric speaker does the work of the microphone via utilizing the metal frame; which in itself sounds like some crazy piece of science fiction tech to us! The futuristic design was apparently achieved by the engineers at Xiaomi by working with the French designer Philippe Starck.



The side buttons and the back of the Mix are ceramic and the display is curved near the corners to add to that full-screen look which it sports so flawlessly. Just in case the innovations seemed insufficient, note that the Mi Mix is also supported by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC, 4GB/6GB RAM, 128GB/256GB internal storage, a 4,400mAh battery, a 16-mp rear camera, an 8-mp front camera and even a 3.5mm jack. To be honest, we are blown away by the Mi Mix and what it promises to bring to the table.

Xiaomi is known mainly as the budget king of the smartphone world, but in an effort to outshine even the likes of the S7 Edge, today it has launched its most expensive smartphone in China. However, considering the beastly specifications that it boasts of, we would say it still is a budget device, if you consider the price-to-performance ratio. Just take a look at the specs unveiled today to get an idea about the proposition.


Display: 5.7-inch dual curved QHD display (Flexible OLED).
SoC: Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 (2.35GHz)
RAM: 4GB/6GB
Internal storage: 64GB/128GB
Battery: 4070mAh
Primary camera: 22.56-megapixel Sony IMX sensor with EIS and f/2.0 aperture
Secondary camera: 8-megapixel



Even the staunchest of Samsung or Apple fans must admit that these are some impressive specs, at least on paper anyway. Once you consider the price, we are sure that you will find it even more interesting. The 4GB/64GB version is priced at CNY 2,799 ($410) and the 6GB/128GB version is available for CNY 3,499 ($515). The good news is that the 6GB/128GB variant will see international release, with global support for 37 LTE bands. We cannot wait to see how the Xiaomi Note 2 performs once it's released.

Xiaomi is famous for bringing top end specs to their smartphones and sell them at half or even less than the similarly powered smartphones from the big boys like Samsung, HTC or Sony. However, all of its smartphones are usually available via online retailers and their own websites only. Xiaomi is about to change that trend with the Redmi 3S+, which according to the company, is going to be an offline-only device. What this means is that the mid-range smartphone priced at Rs 9,499 ($140 approximately) is not going to be sold online anywhere, but will only be available in actual brick and mortar stores under the Make in India initiative.


The decision was apparently taken by the Chinese OEM in order to reach Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities in the country, where online shopping is not very feasible or popular yet. We can clearly see that it is actually a pricier variant of the Redmi 3S/3S Prime without any real improvements. The higher price is obviously a result of offline retailing expenses, but the phone still offers decent value for the price. Check out the major specifications below.


Display: 5-inch 720p
SoC: Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 (1.4GHz) Octa-core 64-bit processor
RAM: 2GB
Internal Storage: 32GB
Rear/front camera: 13mp/5mp
Battery: 4,100mAh
Misc: Fingerprint scanner, VoLTE, etc.
