Two days away from launch after weeks of rumors and reports, the Xiaomi Mi 6X has been spotted on Android’s Official Website.Although it doesn’t reveal all the specs,it does reveal some key specs that we weren’t aware of until now.The listing throws light on the memory configurations, which are pegged to be 32GB and 64GB coupled with 4GB of RAM, the OS version which is Android 8.1.0 and the screen which is a 6-inch unit.If all the reports are to be believed, the Mi 6X will feature a 6-inch diplay with an 18:9 aspect ratio, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 under the hood coupled with 4GB RAM and 32/64GB of onboard storage.The camera would be a 20MP+8MP on the back and a 20MP shooter on the front.The battery is where the Mi 6X sounds disappointing, with only 2910mAh capacity.
If I say that Xiaomi has the most “loyal” fanbase in the world, many will probably disagree considering that Apple and Samsung’s fanboys are quite loyal too, especially Apple.However, have we noticed that the average Xiaomi user never sees anything wrong with what the company does?Now, that is obviously the passion for the company.Xiaomi’s supporters stretch from the high-class citizenry to the low-class smartphone users though the former is only a niche.Compared to Huawei (another Chinese manufacturing giant), Xiaomi is less known globally but even Huawei’s fans are not as enthusiastic as Xiaomi’s.The passion that users have for Xiaomi devices is elucidated in Southeast Asia and mostly India.

Ever since the Chinese masses got wired, regulators have been diligently ensuring that the web is under state control.“Regulation usually arrives when [an industry] grows big in scale and influence,” says Da Lai, an analyst at entertainment research firm EntGroup.While content crackdowns in China are cyclical, “one can be forgiven for thinking that [they] are occurring with increasing frequency,” says Greatfire’s founder, who uses the pseudonym Charlie Smith as his site monitors and challenges the Chinese government’s internet censorship.It has done so, time and again, on the same grounds: the lack of a content license required to legally broadcast online and the proliferation of illegal content.Acquiring this “internet audiovisual program transmission license” used to be relatively easy, with business-as-usual prerequisites like capital and technological capacities.While some penalties may have been warranted, the government has loosely defined what’s “immoral” to give leeway for material that it might consider inappropriate at a later date.

There has been a long tussle between Chinese manufacturing giant, Huawei, and the United States government.For long, the company has tried to penetrate the US market but the government has always rebuffed its attempts.Now, reports suggest that the US is no longer part of Huawei’s global strategy.Therefore, Huawei will quickly reduce the scale of US operations and it is expected that it will completely withdraw from the US market by the end of this year.In response to this report, Huawei state that on the development of the U.S. market, nothing is really out of line.Huawei’s response to the reports does not give a definite statement but the company certainly did not deny the news.
