Xiaomi Mi 6 is unveiling itself some more today, through what appear to be camera samples. The pics shown below are supposed to be samples taken with the dual camera of the device, that has been rumored a lot over the past month. A novelty comes out today, as we learn that the handset is going to sport 5X optical zoom.
That sure sounds a lot like the technology Oppo unveiled at MWC 2017 and Xiaomi may have just borrowed it from their rival. We’ll remind you that the Mi 6 is going to be a powerhouse with a Snapdragon 835 processor, said to be launched around mid April. It’s expected to have two back cameras, a 4 MP front shooter and a 3200 mAh or more battery.
Recently certified by 3C in China had the two camera samples published online, with the words “Shot with Mi 6” and “5X Optical zoom” written on them. We take this info with a grain of salt, because there’s no EXIF data to confirm it. The images also show a nifty logo with two circles overlapping, hinting again at the dual back camera setup on the handsets.
Xiaomi Mi 6 is also said to have 6 GB of RAM, 256 GB of storage in the high end model that comes with a ceramic body, but there will also be a 4 GB version with Snapdragon 821 CPU and a MediaTek Helio X30 one too.
