Xiaomi has a number of devices in the rumor mill and even though the Mi Note 2 is all over, stories of the next Xiaomi Mi6 flagship are also beginning to take shape.
It has been noted that the Xiaomi Mi6 will be one of the most powerful devices in 2017 thanks to its super-amazing specs sheet. Apparently, there will be a physical home button that features a fingerprint scanner. The company could still keep the 5.15-inch screen used on the Mi5 or step it up to 5.2 inches, but be sure to come across a Full HD AMOLED screen when the phone is launched.
Samsung is reportedly working on a Snapdragon 830 that will be used on this Xiaomi Mi6 and other 2017 Android flagships. This chipset will be paired with an Adreno 540 GPU alongside a RAM of 4GB and 32GB of internal storage.
Other notable features of the Xiaomi Mi6 include a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 as well as IP68 certification. The Xiaomi Mi5 came in two variants with the high-end model coming in with a 128GB/4GB RAM configuration. There are reports that this could be the case where the above-mentioned model will represent the base model. As for the other variant, there could be a RAM of 6GB and 64GB/128GB of onboard storage, which can also be expanded via a microSD card.
Xiaomi Mi6 will have a Sony-made 23MP snapper on the back with OIS and dual-tone LED flash on board. A battery size of 3490mAh will take care of things, alongside Qualcomm’s Quick Charge technology.
With VR taking over, expect the Xiaomi Mi6 to be part and parcel of this craze. The Chinese OEM has already made its intentions in the VR world very clear, however, this VR-compatible phone could be priced higher than its predecessors, starting from $499.
Since Xiaomi Mi6 is not expected until 2017, you can expect lots of other developments to come in. Apparently, the latest involves a video showcasing a bendable screen from the same Chinese manufacturer. In the video, the bendable screen can be seen scrolling smoothly without experiencing any problems while navigating the bend.
As for now, there is no word on when this technology will make it to Xiaomi devices, but with the launch of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 seemingly closer than ever, it is reasonable to bring the next Xiaomi Mi6 into this picture. However, until Xiaomi says something, take this report with a grain of salt.
