The poster shows the smartphone sporting a Blue color chassis with dual cameras at its back. In addition to the Mi 6X, Xiaomi is also likely to unveil the Mi Band 3 at the event.
Xiaomi Mi 6X has already appeared in so many leaks that we know what to expect from the smartphone. The smartphone's firmware files have revealed that it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor which has the clock frequency of 2.2GHz. According to TENAA listing, the Mi 3X will arrive in three memory variants.

As stated, the Mi 6X will probably launch in global markets as the Mi A2. It is worth mentioning that Xiaomi has discontinued the Mi A1 in India. This strongly indicates that Mi A1's successor could get unveiled soon in the country. Of course, we are yet to a confirmation on this matter, the hints are enough.
The Mi A1 was quite a popular device among Indian customers, and its successor is also expected to do well in terms of sales. If we were to make a guess, the Xiaomi Mi A2 will carry an affordable price tag just like the Mi A1.
