A listing on China’s version of the FCC, TENAA, has surfaced with details of what is an entry-level version of the Xiaomi Mi 6.
The phone was unveiled a while back and as usual, it came with the aim of downing the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 with flagship specs but with a very affordable price tag, but to no significant success. A successor to the Mi 5, the Mi 6 came with similarly high-end specs and features, but unlike its predecessor, it had one RAM variant.
Well, it appears that this is going to be short-lived thanks to a listing on TENAA showing a 4GB RAM version of the Xiaomi Mi 6 is probably being lined up. The already released version has 6GB of RAM alongside two storage options of 64GB and 128GB. Whether the 4GB RAM variant will be restricted to the 64GB storage is still unknown, but it’s likely this will be the case.
From the TENAA listing, every other known specs and features of the Xiaomi Mi 6 will be retained on the entry-level variant. These include a 5.15-inch display screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clocked at 2.45GHz and a dual-lens camera on the back, but the specs sheet also says the battery capacity is 3250mAh instead of the known 3350mAh.

The dimensions remain unchanged and so does the OS running the show out of the box, Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Perhaps one notable thing about the new listing on TENAA is that the Xiaomi Mi 6 now has up to ten color variants, yet we only know of the three – or four – that came with it back in April – White, Blue, Black and Ceramic Black. The new ones are Gold, Gray, Silver, Pink, Champagne Gold, Frosted Black, Dark Gray, and Cherry Blossom.
There’s no word of when this version of the Mi 6 will be unveiled, but it shouldn’t be long now that TENAA has cleared it.
