The official release date of Xiaomi Mi 6 is not yet known, but the latest rumors are adamant that the phone, alongside a high-end variant dubbed Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus, will be unveiled today.
If this turns out to be a success, another rumor also adds that the Xiaomi Mi 6 and Mi 6 Plus will become official as from April 19, which is next week Wednesday and about the same time the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus start shipping. Of course, these are rumors, especially since the tech giant has remained coy on the matter.
Despite the silence, more rumors and leaks are still flowing and the latest reveal the supposed pricing of the Xiaomi Mi 6 and Mi 6 Plus. As usual, you can expect an insanely affordable smartphone from the tech giant while at the same time matching the performance specs of top names in the industry like the aforementioned Galaxy S8 and S8+.
Apparently, the standard Mi 6 will be priced at just CNY 2,199, which is equivalent to about $320. As for the high-end Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus, the price will start at CNY 2,699 or about $390. Whereas the standard MI 6 is expected to come in two variants, the high-end Mi 6 Plus will ship with up to three different variants.
The base model of the Xiaomi Mi 6 will reportedly ship with 4GB RAM and 64GB of expandable storage while the high-end variant will come in with the same RAM but twice the storage. This also hikes the price to CNY 2,599 or about $375. For the Mi 6 Plus, all three variants have the same 6GB RAM, but the base model has 64GB storage whereas the other two have 128GB and 256GB storage. The prices of these two are also different, with the former priced at CNY 3,099 or about $450 and the premium model coming in at CNY 3,699 or about $535.
