Sony recently announced RX100 VI camera and it do have lot of improved Core specification compared to the RX100 V camera.
But before you begin let me tell you that the sensor of both the camera as well as the auto focusing system remains exactly same. You get 315. Phase autofocus points and 25 contrast based autofocus points in both the camera. However the auto focusing speed of the camera is listed up to 2x compared to the RX100 V camera. Now the RX100 VI camera is able to do auto focusing af 0.03 seconds where the Sony RX100 V camera was limited to 0.05 seconds
With the help of improvement in the autofocus Street now you can do auto focus while doing a continuous burst of 24 frames per second. And the buffer memory of the camera is also improved now you can save 305 jpegs in a single best.

One of the most attractive thing of the Sony RX100 VI camera is the introduction of 8.3 X optical zoom lens find the 8.3 X optical zoom lens doesn’t support the aperture value of the previous 3.2 X optical zoom lens of the RX100 V camera. But at the same time you get more range and of course the 8.3X zoom lens is one of the best in its class. Getting more zoom lens and sacrificing the aperture value may result up with lower grade low light performance when compared to its predecessor.
Sony RX100 VI camera is the first in RX100 series to have a touch LCD display screen also the rotation of the LCD screen is more flexible compared to the predecessor. You can say that RX 100 VI camera have a true 180 degree tilting display screen.

There are lot of big and small improvements in the Sony RX100 VI camera but at the same time I am going to say the low light performance of the camera is not similar to the Sony RX100 V camera due to the introduction of more zoom lens and raising up the aperture value resulting less available amount of light in the low light environment.
