Chinese smartphone maker, Xiaomi is planning to launch a new smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi 6X. The smartphone will be the successor to last year’s Mi 5X, which was launched as Mi A1 in other markets with stock Android on board. An image of the phone’s back cover, allegedly belonging to Xiaomi Mi 6X has leaked online via Chinese microblogging site Weibo. The image shows lines very similar to those of Mi 5X/ Mi A1, with a metal body, interrupted by the upper plastic bands of the antennas. However, there are a couple of differences from the past models.

The leaked image shows the phone will come with a dual camera setup at the back, but this time the sensors have been stacked vertically. The module has been placed at the top-left corner, similar to the choice made by Apple for its iPhone X. Much like iPhone X camera setup, there could be a LED flash nested between the two lens.

Besides the camera module, there appears a big circular hole in the middle of the panel, which is perhaps for the fingerprint scanner. The placement of the fingerprint scanner at the rear suggests that Xiaomi will bring the bezel-less design with trendy 18:9 display for its Mi 6X phone.

This is not the first-time leak of the Mi 6X as earlier a photo of TPU case was seen online. The transparent silicone case showed a speaker grill at the bottom with an option for 3.5mm audio jack. Other details and specifications regarding this device are unclear at this point.

Also, it is safe to assume the Mi 6X as Mi A2 for international markets. According to rumours, the Mi 6X will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC and up to 6GB of RAM. Of course, at this point, it can be said with certainty, and the image itself could be a fake one.
