Larger Home Button
The image clearly reveals that the flagship phone of Xiaomi features a larger Home button than its predecessor. It is also said to pack a linear motor that delivers vibrational feedback. However, according to rumors, the Home button does not press down.
In terms of design, Xiaomi Mi 6 does look gorgeous. The body of the device seems to be made of ceramic, which gives it a premium appearance. The latest teaser from the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has hinted the phone will have four curved design.
This little piece of information could mean that the Mi 6 will either sport a curved display teamed with curved back design or four curved design at the rear. Previously it was speculated that the phone would have a flat display, but the latest teaser has suggested otherwise. However, most likely the Mi 6 would come with four curved design at the back.
Another rumor claims that the Mi 6 will also have IP67 certified dust and water resistant body. As per this image, the smartphone will come equipped with an IR blaster and the power and volume controller button will be located on its right side.
Talking about cameras, it seems to have two cameras at the back along with dual LED flash. The phone also features a USB Type-C port, while no 3.5mm headphone jack can be seen from this image.
If the rumors regarding the water resistant body and iris scanner turn out to be true, then the phone will naturally carry a higher price tag compared to its predecessors.
