Last week, an alleged Xiaomi Mi 6 appeared on GFXBench, all but confirming the major hardware specs that we can expect to see on the Mi 5 successor.
The listing on GFXBench was also a major indicator that the phone must have possibly been completed and just waiting confirmation. Apparently, a new report sourced from Android Pure claims that the Xiaomi Mi 6 could be unveiled tomorrow.
Of course, the publication goes on to add that this is not an official word from Xiaomi, which could also mean that the Mi 6 won’t be here this week. However, this still doesn’t rule out a possible launch of the phone before the end of this month as previous rumors had put it.
As if backing up the latest developments that the Xiaomi Mi 6 could be announced tomorrow, a series of images have been leaked showing off the phone’s front panel. If these images are to be believed, Xiaomi is set to stick with a larger part of the design language that made the Mi 5 a success. The bezels remain unchanged, with the home button and fingerprint scanner keeping their place on the lower side of the phone.
However, it appears that the Xiaomi Mi 6 could come with an iris scanner as well. Looking at the top bezel, the images shows several slots that could suggest this eye scanning feature will be housed here alongside the front camera. Xiaomi has also taken to its official Weibo account with an image a message that suggests the Mi 6 could be confirmed tomorrow.
As noted earlier, the Xiaomi Mi 5 appeared in benchmarks and revealed a good number of specs. If the listing is to be believed, the phone will ship with the same 5.15-inch Full HD screen we saw on last year’s Mi 5, a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, 4GB/6GB RAM and at least 64GB of storage. As for the cameras, the Mi 6 is expected to come with a 12MP shooter on the back and an 8MP selfie lens. Android Nougat will power the phone out of the box.
