<p><a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/110302b6p8ij7cvff63yqo.png" class=" no-style"><img class="alignnone size-hero-size wp-image-488560" src="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/110302b6p8ij7cvff63yqo-728x410.png" alt="" width="668" height="376" /></a></p> <p>Xiaomi, to no one's surprise, unveiled the Mi 6X, a follow up to last year's Mi 5X. As is typical for Xiaomi, this phone packs an insane value with its solid specs and low price point.

So, all in all, it's a pretty typical affair, but the Mi 6X looks like it'll be a winner.<div class="clear"></div> <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/04/25/xiaomi-mi-6x-launches-april-27-snapdragon-660-dual-cameras-ai-features/" class="read-more">Read More</a></p><p><a href='https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/04/25/xiaomi-mi-6x-launches-april-27-snapdragon-660-dual-cameras-ai-features/'>Xiaomi Mi 6X launches on April 27 with Snapdragon 660,...
