Xiaomi has been teasing the launch of a dual camera smartphone in India for the past one month. The company has now started sending out press invites and fan registration across the Indian media for a smartphone with flagship dual rear camera. If you are a Xiaomi fan, you must know that the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has two dual camera smartphone presently for sale internationally — the mid-range Mi 5x and the flagship Mi 6.

The last time we talked about their leak related to this under-the-wraps dual camera smartphone, we assumed it to be the Mi 5x. That was because Xiaomi’s mid-range smartphones find a lot of favour with the Indian smartphone seeker. The Mi 5x fits the requirements of Indians perfectly with a mid-range Snapdragon 625 chipset, 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage along with a dual camera setup from the flagship Mi 6. It is, in fact, a glorified Redmi Note 4 (read the review here).

 

However, the leak here also states about a ‘flagship dual camera’ smartphone, with this to be their global unveiling. The ‘flagship’ tag also hints at the Xiaomi Mi 6, which is supposed to be the successor to the old Mi 5 flagship from 2016. Will Xiaomi unveil the rumuored Mi 6 Plus in India? The standard Mi 6 with its Snapdragon 835 chipset, 6GB RAM, a premium glass-metal body and a dual camera setup is a solid smartphone and with the Mi 6 Plus, Xiaomi could finally have an answer to the this year’s flagship killer witha  justified price — the OnePlus 5 (review). It would also make sense for Xiaomi to unveil the Mi 6 in India before the arrival of the festive season so as to get some respectable sales figures for this supposedly expensive Xiaomi smartphone.

 

As for now, nothing else has been revealed by Xiaomi. But one thing is known for sure — both the Mi 5x and the Mi 6 are good smartphones having gathered positive reviews across the globe.
