If you’re already swooning over the new Galaxy S8 and S8+, and you’re thinking that it’s the best phone your money can buy right now, you might want to hold on to your horses. Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has unveiled its latest flagship handset this week – the Mi 6 and its made to impress.

The phone is quite a looker with curved edges both at the front and back. There are also improvements in the design including splash resistance and bold new colors such as silver and blue with a glossy treatment. The innards have also seen an upgrade with a new SoC and 6GB of RAM.

Another department getting a bump in specs is the camera. Just like most flagship models these days; the Mi 6 comes equipped with a dual camera setup similar to that of the iPhone 7 which should help users take better photos.

The Xiaomi Mi 6 will launch starting next week initially in China starting at $360 for the base 64GB model and goes up to $435 for the 128GB ceramic model. You can check the full specs of the Mi 6 below.
