Xiaomi’s long-awaited Mi 6 may finally come to light on April 16 going by a new report out of China. The flagship handset has been the subject of numerous rumors over the past few months, with many offering different dates for its arrival.
The Mi 6 is apparently going to sport a Snapdragon 835 processor, as has been speculated before. Rumor has it that Xiaomi will become the first Chinese handset maker to stuff the SoC in its phones in the process. To recall, one of the main reasons given for the smartphone’s delay was that Samsung had reportedly hogged all units of the CPU.
MyDrivers asserts that Xiaomi isn’t going to under clock the upcoming device like it has done with phones such as the Mi 5 in the past. This should allow the handset to reach its highest potential, allowing people to enjoy the full extent of the Snapdragon 835’s capabilities.
Other major specs revealed in the report include a 5.2-inch LCD screen, 2.5D glass, and a ceramic body variant. The Mi 6 may even get hold of an Xperia XZ Premium-like camera module. The Sony handset made quite an impact at the MWC 2017 because of its advanced super slow motion camera.
There might be 3 versions of the Mi 6 incoming namely a 4GB/32GB iteration, 4GB/64GB one, and 6GB/128GB option. Xiaomi may stick to a CNY 1999 (roughly Rs 19300) starting cost and top off at around CNY 2500 (approx Rs 24200) for the ceramic model.
