The Xiaomi Mi 6 is due to be unveiled sometime this month (April 16 has been mentioned) and there's no shortage of leaks claiming to detail the upcoming top-end device. Well, here's a new one. What is allegedly the Mi 6's retail box comes with a full specsheet on the back and we're immediately drawn to that 3000 number.
