But unlike the Mi MIX 2’s 6-inch FHD+ display with an 18:9 image format, the device’s screen measures 5.6 inches and has a traditional aspect ratio of 16:9. Could this be the Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus that was rumored months ago?

Another Xiaomi Chiron feature seen on GFXBench is a 12-megapixel rear camera. Now, we’re not sure if it has a dual-camera system or not. For all we know, we might actually be getting two sensors. You see, there are rumors saying that the smartphone’s highlight is its high-end camera, with its support for 4K 2160p video recording, auto-focus, HDR, and face detection.
