It is April and we are not just edge seated and in eager anticipation to see the much talked about and drooled over Xiaomi Mi 6. As its launching date gets closer, more information surrounding it begins to come to the open and now, fresh rumors have it that the handset would be going live without a 3.5mm audio jack.
The absence of a 3.5 mm audio jack doesn’t mean that the handset wouldn’t have ear buds along with it, as the folks over at Xiaomi are currently working on making a Bluetooth ear bud for this handset. Apple launched the iPhone 7 and its larger variant without a 3.5mm audio jack and gave it wireless headphones so we see Xiaomi picking up this same trend for their upcoming beastly beauty.
Xiaomi has released word that they would soon be making official a new Bluetooth headset costing about $101 and this has kind of a resemblance with the same ear buds which the iPhone 7 shipped off with. So we might just be looking at the headsets for the Mi 6.
Nonetheless, there is still no official word from the manufacturer themselves if this headset would be for the Xiaomi Mi 6 flagship smartphone or if it would be a gadget on its own so please treat the above information with the proverbial pinch of salt.
Also be aware that the absence of a 3.5mm audio jack is just the word online and not from the manufacturers themselves so treat that information accordingly although there are some images that buttress the claim of an audio jack being absent.
