Xiaomi is gearing up to launch its next flagship smartphone the Mi 6, expected to run on MIUI 9 with Android Nougat onboard. Some of the things we haven't heard about the Mi 6, includes its camera and pricing, which have been hinted with the new leaks.

The Mi 6 is expected to come with a dual-camera setup using Sony's latest IMX400 sensors which features, 5-axis stabilization and a 5.15-inch 1080p AMOLED display. Then there's the larger Mi 6 Plus with a 5.7-inch to take on the iPhone 7 Plus which should also pack 12MP + 20MP dual cameras. Although manufacturers are moving towards dual stereo speakers on some flagships including Apple, Xiaomi is expected to keep a bottom firing speaker on both phones.
