The Mi 6 has become the subject of a number of rumors over the past few days, bringing to a light a number of details concerning its price and features. The handset doesn’t have a fixed launch date yet, with some pinning down an April unveiling and others pointing to a May arrival.
The first leak up for discussion is a series of Weibo-sourced renders that showcase the back and side surfaces of the alleged Mi 6. If accurate, it confirms past theories that the device is going to carry a dual-camera setup. The two lenses are depicted side-by-side next to a dual-LED flash module. The curved silhouette suggests an arched design.
The next leak delves into the various configurations of the Mi 6. The regular variant may be sold in 4GB/32GB, 4GB/64GB, and 6GB/128GB options at CNY 1999 (roughly Rs 19000), CNY 2299 (about Rs 21800), and CNY 2699 (around Rs 25600).
The presumably larger Mi 6 Plus is apparently going to be available in 4GB/64GB, 6GB/128GB, and 8GB/256GB models at CNY 2599 (approx Rs 24700), CNY 2999 (roughly Rs 28500), and CNY 3499 (around Rs 33200). At the moment, it’s unclear whether all the iterations will be sporting Snapdragon 835 processors.
Earlier speculation has held that Xiaomi will grant the standard Mi 6 versions a Snapdragon 821 SoC and the more premium ones a Snapdragon 835 CPU. This could translate to the former going on sale first followed by the latter a few months down the line. This delay has supposedly come about due to Samsung hogging all units of the SD835 for the Galaxy S8.
