Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi is reportedly working on successor its Mi 5X, which was launched globally as Mi A1. The phone dubbed Mi 6X recently surfaced online as several renders of the device were spotted by different sources. The Mi 6X model allegedly pictured in a couple of hands-on images revealed the design of the upcoming device. The latest set of images show the Mi 6X in Black and Gold colour variants. And these photos were posted on Chinese microblogging Weibo and spotted by OnePhone and Slashleaks
The leaked images show the Mi 6X images up front and of the back. The most noticeable change is the vertical dual rear camera setup that resembles that of the Apple’s newly launched iPhone X. The LED flash is placed between the camera sensors as well. Apart from the camera module, the image shows a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner that is placed in the middle of the panel.
The new images also seemingly confirm the Mi 6X will support the trendy 18:9 aspect ratio display. The smartphone is likely to feature a 5.99-inch display with Full HD resolution. Xiaomi is expected to use standard IPS LCD panel, similar to its predecessor and a lot of other Xiaomi mid-range devices.
The Mi 6X will be powered by Xiaomi’s own Surge S2 chipset. This will have an octa-core processor with four Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at up to 1.8GHz. Accompanying the CPU will be the Mali-G71 MP8 GPU.

Xiaomi is expected to unveil the Mi 6X in late February at its MWC event in Barcelona. Interestingly, the Mi 5X was launched as Mi A1 in international markets. It is, therefore, possible the Mi 6X may launch as Mi A2 outside of China.
