If you are in line to upgrade your phone this year and looking into the upcoming Mi6 as a viable option, then to your surprise or to your dismay it is now almost certainly can be told that Mi6 will be devoid of a 3.5mm Headphone jack. In a recent streak of leaked photos on the Chinese twitter clone Weibo, the alleged Mi6 can be seen from top and bottom. And you guessed it right, there is no headphone jack to be found on either of the sides.
But those leaked images have revealed few more interesting details about the soon to be launched Mi6. Like a 2.5D curved front display.
The IR Blaster for the remote still lives on top of the phone and still alive and kicking accompanied by a secondary noise-cancelling microphone.
Obviously no 3.5 mm headphone jack at the bottom. But a single USB Type-C port flanked by two 4 port grills on the either side of it. Though we think one of it will be for a speaker and another one will be for the primary microphone for the calls and communications.
And a gorgeously beautiful flowing liquid like back. Off course with a new dual camera setup. Probably one with a wide-angle lens and another with a telephoto setup flanked by a dual led flash on one side.
But don’t worry. All is not lost yet. The omission of the headphone just might be pointing to a waterproof IPX67 or IPX68 rated Mi6. But we can not be sure until the Mi6 shows up in flesh on April 19th, 2017.
