Design and Display

The Xiaomi Mi 6 shows off an elegant design, which is largely comparable to what we have seen in the past. It will be available in standard glass and ceramic models. The latter variant, complemented by tiny 18K gold accents, is more premium, but also heavier.

At 7.5 mm, the phone parades a somewhat svelte profile. Xiaomi Mi 6 offers a 5.15-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD (1080p) resolution. Although the screen should deliver spectacular viewing quality, Xiaomi could have provided its flagship device a higher resolution.
