The Xiaomi Mi 6 is one of the handsets that are expected to grace the MWC 2017 event in Barcelona, Spain, just like last year’s Xiaomi Mi 5.
The company launched the Xiaomi Mi 6 predecessor at the MWC 2016 event in Spain and back then, the phone was the cheapest flagship to be unveiled at the event. Back then, Xiaomi priced the Mi 5 at CNY 2000, an equivalent to about $306 at the time. This time around, there will be some huge changes to the price of the Mi 6, with reports citing an increase in the cost of production materials.
If the latest reports are to be believed, the Xiaomi Mi 6 will be priced at CNY 2499, an approximate of about $360. As you can see, this will mean an increase in the price of about $60, which is something really huge. On the contrary, shooting the price of a Xiaomi flagship from $300 to $360 will still make the phone one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest flagship this 2017.
Keep in mind that this info is still a rumor and nothing to be trusted so far. The story is also the same when it comes to the specs and features of the Mi 6 – a phone that has been in the rumor mills for quite some time now. Apparently, the Xiaomi Mi 6 is expected to come in at the MWC 2017 and it will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 835 SoC.
As opposed to some rumors, a new report has claimed that Xiaomi Mi 6 will not come in with an 8GB RAM variant. Potential buyers can expect to get a base model of 4GB, but it is possible that a 6GB model could be unveiled. Xiaomi is also rumored to be taking inspiration from the recently launched Mi Note 2 as far as the design language is concerned, but this, like the rest of the story, is still a rumor. Nonetheless, you can be sure that Android Nougat will power the device out of the box.
