Everyone is talking about the Galaxy S8 this week, but Xiaomi is trying to take some of the attention away from Samsung’s juggernaut. At an event in Beijing, the company took the wraps off its own flagship handset, and it clearly has the S8 in its sights.
The Mi6 bucks the large-screen trend somewhat with its 5.15-inch display, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a premium handset. Under the hood, the phone is powered by the Snapdragon 835 chip, making it just the third phone to feature the next-generation processor. However, with Sony’s Xperia XZ Premium not shipping until June, it will be the first to hit shelves after the S8.
