The design of the phone largely resembles of what we have seen in the Xiaomi Mi 5. The team has taken a step further with the implementation of the four-sided curved glass at the front and back panel. Creating a phone that feels great to hold in the hands. While it is not IP-rated for water and dust proofing, Xiaomi has stated the phone will be at least splash-proof with rubber sealing.
They even hop onto the dual camera bandwagon with the Xiaomi Mi 6. The camera uses 2 different focal length lens, one standard lens and another telephoto lens. It works just like the iPhone 7 Plus, where you get 2x lossless zooms and takes awesome looking portraits.
