Xiaomi has followed the trend set by Samsung by pushing its flagship launch beyond March, the usual period of flagship launch from the MI family. The Mi 6 smartphone is now said to be revealed in the coming month. But reports are now offering every facet of what to expect in the upcoming flagship.
According to the newly emerged report from GizmoChina, the Mi 6 will feature two variants. The MI 6 will be the regular 5.15-inch sized smartphone, while there will also be a Mi 6 Plus model that will feature 5.7-inch screen size.
The smartphone is said to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset that will be paired with 4 GB RAM on both the models, which is relatively a minor upgrade. On the storage front, the Mi 6 will feature 32 GB storage, while the bigger variant will have an onboard storage of 64 GB. It needs to be seen whether there will be support for external storage.
The bigger upgrade is however with the cameras, as Xiaomi Mi flagship range will jump to a dual-cam setup for the first time in its history. The dual-cam will be confined to the bigger Mi 6 Plus model, while the smaller edition will be packing a single-cam setup backed by Sony IMX 400 sensor. It’s not sure whether Xiaomi will have the same sensor used for Mi 6 Plus.
The battery upgrade is considered to be relatively small as Mi 6 will be housing a battery of only 3200 mAh. There is also a noticeable increase in the thickness, with the Mi 6 said to be measuring .7mm thicker than its predecessor.
The report has also opened the lid on the pricing of the device. The smaller and bigger Mi 6 devices will be respectively priced at 1999 yuan($290) and 2499 yuan ($360). It’s too early for any confirmation, but we can expect to have at least some of the aforesaid features to get confirmed as we pace closer towards the launch.
