The past 24 hours have brought a flurry of Mi 6-related news to the fore, most notably the possibility that the phone might be getting launched today. Xiaomi apparently announced that the flagship phone would be coming out on April 11 via its official Weibo page.
Xiaomi doesn’t appear to have revealed much about the Mi 6 and Mi 6 Plus, only indicating that another flagship was due to make an appearance a year after the last one. It also dropped hints about an impressive camera, rumored to be a dual 12MP Sony IMX362 setup on the back and 8MP Ultrapixel unit on the front.
The other big news is a visit to Antutu that a device called the Xiaomi Sagit took recently. Based on its specs, there’s a strong chance the smartphone which was put through its paces is the entry-level Mi 6. The handset scored a pretty high 170000 points, thanks in large part to the Snapdragon 835 processor beating at its heart.

Other possible features include Android 7.1.1 Nougat, 64GB of ROM, 4GB of RAM, a full HD screen, and an Adreno 540 GPU. The memory configurations line up with a Weibo post which got leaked out hours ago. As per the leak, this particular Mi 6 model will be priced at CNY 2199 (approx Rs 20600).
Another may offer 128GB of ROM and 4GB of RAM at CNY 2599 (roughly Rs 24300). As for the Mi 6 Plus, it could go for the same CNY 2599 cost while serving up 64GB of ROM and 6GB of RAM. The variant might be followed up by a 128GB of ROM and 6GB of RAM iteration at CNY 3099 (about Rs 29000).
Finally, there’s supposed to be an ultimate version carrying 256GB of ROM and 6GB of RAM at CNY 3699 (around Rs 34600). If all the speculation holds true, the Mi 6 should be arriving soon. We’ll keep you updated when it does.
