We’re still a day away from the reveal of the details of Xiaomi’s collaboration with Hatsune Miku, but that hasn’t stopped nearly the full details about the campaign from leaking!
Thanks to leaks, we know that Xiaomi will announce a special Hatsune Miku edition of their Mi 6X phone, which is a premium mid-range device. This is a step up from last year’s Miku edition Redmi Note 4X, which was a budget mid-range.
The Miku Edition Mi 6X bundle will include the phone, along with their well-known Mi powerbank (likely the 10,000 mAh model). Both of which will feature lineart on the backside by an illustrator we’re friends with, @ZY_Remix!
The full collaboration details will be officially announced on June 28th, China time, while the expected launch date is July 3rd. It will be priced at 2099 Chinese Yuan ($320 USD). Here’s what we know about the device, according to the alleged leaks:
