The Xiaomi Mi 6 is coming soon. 

The company will be launching its next flagship on April 19 in Beijing, according to a post on Xiaomi’s Facebook page.

Xiaomi didn’t share any actual specs for the phone, but it did say the Mi 6 would be a “performance beast.”

Xiaomi has lost a little of its luster recently: The company fell out of the top 5 smartphone makers list last year, and VP of Global Hugo Barra left in early 2017. But Xiaomi is still renowned for its affordable, yet stylish and powerful, smartphones. 

In fact, the Xiaomi Mi 5 was one of the biggest surprises of 2016, with true high-end specs at an incredibly low price. 

So what do we know about the next major flagship from Xiaomi (we’re not counting the Mi 5s, which was a relatively minor refresh of the Mi 5)? Well, a recently leaked set of specs reveal that Xiaomi will actually launch two phones: The 5.15-inch Mi 6 and the 5.7-inch Mi 6 Plus. If the specs are real, neither device will have a curvy, elongated screen like the new flagships from Samsung and LG, but they will come with a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 12-megapixel rear and 8-megapixel front cameras, and a 3,200 and 4,500mAh battery, respectively.
