Xiaomi Mi 6 pops up on GFXBench running Snapdragon 835 SoC

Xiaomi Mi 6 Leak

It won’t be long before the Mi 6 goes official this month, with the smart money on either April 11 or 18. A steady stream of leaks have been keeping the phone in the news for months on end and this doesn’t look like it’s stopping anytime soon. The phone has now popped up on GFXBench, giving away a number of major specs.

To be more precise, a handset called the Xiaomi Sagit has been listed on the benchmarking site. A quick glance over its features suggests that it may just be the brand’s next flagship. The most obvious indicator of this is the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 835 processor beating at its heart.

Rumors so far have long claimed that the Mi 6 runs on a Snapdragon 835 SoC. It’s one of the reasons given for the smartphone’s delay, since units of the CPU are hard to come by because of the Galaxy S8. If true, that would make it the third device to sport the chipset after the aforementioned Samsung phone and the Sony Xperia XZ Premium.

Assisting the Xiaomi handset in its day-to-day activities might be either 4GB or 6GB of RAM and an Adreno 540 GPU. The first two are likely going to be sold as separate options in the form of regular and premium variants. Photography options include a 12MP rear-facing camera with support for UHD 4K video recording, flash, autofocus, and face detection.

There’s also an 8MP front-facing snapper mentioned. Interestingly, it too features support for 4K videos. Other specs confirmed by GFXBench are a 5.1-inch full HD display, Android 7.1.1 Nougat skinned over with MIUI, and 64GB or 128GB of ROM.

The standard Mi 6 could be priced starting at CNY 1999 (approx $289 or Rs 18700). The deluxe Plus version could top out at CNY 2699 (roughly $391 or Rs 25200).
