Xiaomi’s latest flagship phone has just been outed. Dubbed the Xiaomi Mi 6, it may be the first new phone to give the Samsung Galaxy S8 a run for its money. The Mi 6 is no phablet, featuring only a 5.15-inch Full HD screen, but it’s packed full of other high-end features, including an octa-core 2.4GHz Snapdragon 835 CPU, 6GB RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.

It also comes with a large 3350mAh battery, which should provide a good amount of battery life given the onboard chipset’s known power efficiency. The Mi 6 also features a dual cam setup on the back, using a combo of two 12MP camera sensors with no bulge, and up to 2x lossless zoom plus 4-axis anti-shake for video recording. The phone looks stunning in every sense of the word, though it’s now known how well it will withstand scratches with daily use.

The Mi 6’s curvy body hides a total of 4 stereo speakers, a fingerprint scanner below the display, a Type-C port, and splash-resistant protection. It ships with Android 7.1.1 as standard, and will be available in White, Black, and Blue. It will also be released in two special Ceramic and Silver editions, with 18K gold camera rims for that extra premium feel. Pricing starts at around $363 or Php 18,000 for the 64GB version, around $421 or Php 21,000 for the 128GB version, and around $436 or Php 22,000 for the ceramic versions.
