The phone runs MIUI 8 based on Android 7.1, and the company claims its Antutu score is over 180,000 points. With those specifications Xiaomi Mi 6 would be a great candidate for convergence applications, but AFAIK the company has not provided any “desktop experience” software, nor docking station.

The phone ships with a USB tType-C cable, an eject pin for the SIM card slots, a user manual, and a power adapter. The 4GB/64GB sells in China for 2,499 CNY ($362), and 6GB/128GB version for 2,899 CNY ($USD421). GeekBuying has already started to take pre-orders for respectively $481.99 and $565.99 shipped, with actual shipping scheduled for in about one month.

    Benjamin :
    Any word on LTE connectivity ?

    FDD-LTE: B1/3/5/7/8, TDD-LTE:38/39/40/41

    So no Band 20 for Germany…

    I wish more of these phones would have the US bands. The following would help a lot:

    LTE: 2 4 12 17

    Apple manages to support the following in one phone:

    LTE: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 38, 39, 40, 41

    These fones are prioritized for PRC domestic market.

    Xiaomi doesn’t want to butt heads with Apple in US market for fear of patent and IP issues.

    They still do well without presence in US market and are behind only Apple and Samsung in international sales volume of handsets.

    The only product they have targeted for US market is their official AndroidTV STB, sold thru walmart in US

    @Bruce
    Noted, and updated. I relied on GeekBuying for the specs, and I understood that “Audio output:Yes” meant an audio jack, but maybe it just means audio via USB-C?
