No 8GB RAM for Xiaomi Mi6 – Phone to Feature Snapdragon 835 and 4GB RAM

Xiaomi Mi6

Xiaomi Mi6 is the next big phone expected to come from the Chinese OEM – a smartphone manufacturer that is gaining users as each day passes.

Just a few years ago, no one in the west knew about Xiaomi. However, a series of smartphones that have been released by the company, including last year’s Xiaomi Mi 5 and Mi Note 2, have meant that the name of the company is now growing big. It got even much bigger when the same company, which is known as the Apple of China due to its iPhone-like smartphones, recently launched an all-new Xiaomi Mi MIX – a phone that has re-imagined the smartphone design we all know of.

With all the hype that Xiaomi has been gaining in the recent past, expectations are high that the Xiaomi Mi6 will be an even better phone than the rest of the 2016 family. Like the Mi5, the Xiaomi Mi6 should be launched at the upcoming MWC 2017 event. Now that the company has shown the world what it is capable of, most pundits are of the view that the Mi6 will take after the Mi Note 2 when it comes to the design language, at least for one variant. In short, a curved dual-edge display panel is touted alongside a dual-lens camera setup on the back.


While none of these has been confirmed by the Chinese OEM, it appears that we have even more information about the rumored Xiaomi Mi6 flagship. According to a new leak, the phone will come in with a Snapdragon 835 SoC clocked at a speed of 2.2GHz, something that is not new to our ears or rather eyes. However, what seems strange is the confirmation that there won’t be an 8GB RAM variant for the Mi6, contrary to previous reports that had indicated this possibility.

Instead, the Xiaomi Mi6 will ship with a base model of 4GB RAM, meaning there could be a 6GB RAM variant in the works. Last year’s Mi5 had a 3GB RAM and 4GB RAM variant in the market and as such, we expect to see two variants of the Mi6 when the phone is released somewhere in March or April this year.

Keep in mind that this unconfirmed is unconfirmed and as such, take it with a grain of salt. Still, it is reasonable to rule out an 8GB RAM model, especially since Samsung just launched the 8GB RAM module for smartphones a few months ago.
