Xiaomi Mi 6X, the successor to last year’s Mi 5X, is expected to launch in China on April 25. The smartphone is likely to be rebranded as Mi A2 and replace the Mi A1 in India, the first smartphone from the company based on Google’s Android One platform.

While we have already heard about the specifications and design features of the smartphone, a new leak shows an alleged retail box of the upcoming smartphone. A photo posted by Slashleaks claims a user got hold of the retail box of the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 6X. The back of the box reveals that the Mi 6X will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, and will be Xiaomi’s new mid-range offering. The leaks so far suggest it will be offered in three storage variants, a base model with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage, and a 6GB RAM variant with option for either 64GB or 128GB storage.

The retail box also shows that the upcoming device will feature a dual rear camera setup. It is expected to copy the vertically stacked dual rear camera setup of Redmi Note 5 Pro, and sport a combination of 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensors. The leaked image also shows that the smartphone will come bundled with a USB Type-C to 3.5mm dongle hinting at the fact that the smartphone will miss out on 3.5mm audio jack.

Xiaomi Mi 6X rumored specifications, features

In terms of specifications, the Mi 6X is expected to feature a 5.99-inch display with a Full HD+ (2160×1080 pixels) resolution, and 18:9 aspect ratio. It is expected to sport a 20-megapixel selfie camera, and pack a 2,910mAh battery. Xiaomi executives have been teasing the launch for sometime and last week, the company shared a number of pictures taken with the smartphone.

The Xiaomi Mi 6X is expected to be based on MIUI 9 with Android Oreo as the base variant. The rebranded Mi A2 will likely run Android 8.1 Oreo with Android One branding at the back. It is expected to arrive in five different colors including Cherry Powder, Red Flame, Sand Gold, Glacier Blue and Black Stone
