Xiaomi brought the successor to its Mi 5X in China earlier this week as the all-new Mi 6X. To recall, the Mi 5X was introduced in India as the Mi A1, Xiaomi's first smartphone offering in India with a dual camera setup and a stock Android operating system. After the launch of the Mi 6X, it is expected that the smartphone will reach the Indian market as the next-in-line for the Mi A1, probably termed as the Mi A2. If so, this will only be the second smartphone by the company with a stock Google OS experience.

In parallel, HMD Global is also set to introduce a new smartphone in the Chinese market in the form of the Nokia X6. Though the Nokia X6 has not been unveiled till now, it is expected to launch on April 27 only. Already leaked specifications and renders of the smartphone on the Internet reveal almost all the information about the upcoming Nokia X6. If the reports turn out to be true, the Nokia X6 will be a straight-up competition for the Mi 6X at its price point.

In case both the devices make their way to India, here is what they will offer to the buyers and how they will compete against each other.
