Xiaomi Mi 6 is not new in the rumor mills. It has been here since last year and with expectations high that the phone could be refreshed at the MWC 2017 in a few days’ time, more leaks are coming in, but there is little consistency in them.
According to previous rumors, the Xiaomi Mi 6 will come with two variants. Where one will ship with standard specs, the other one will be the high-end version. This is not strange at all from Xiaomi – it happened with the Mi 5 and Mi 5S. Apparently, there are fresh details about these two variants of the Mi 6.
The standard Xiaomi Mi 6 will reportedly ship with a Full HD screen (1920 x 1080 pixels) and even though the screen size is not mentioned, this matches what was touted not so long ago. As for the high-end variant, the tipster says the phone will have a WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels). Other than shipping with a high-end QHD screen, this model will also have a ceramic body.
The processor is not confirmed, but the tech giant will reportedly ship the Xiaomi Mi 6 with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage on the standard edition while the high-end variant comes with the same RAM and doubles the storage. The cameras of the back and front should be the same for both handsets – an alleged 12MP on the rear and 8MP on the front.
There are no other specs or features the latest leak gives out on the Xiaomi Mi 6, but previous reports have suggested that the low-end model could ship with a MediaTek processor while the high-end variant will wait for the release of Snapdragon 835, probably later in April or even May. It is also possible that the alleged “high-end” model could actually turn out to be the midrange version, with a 6GB RAM and 128GB storage model probably in the works as well. Last year’s Mi 5 and Mi 5S had storage options of up to 128GB, so why not this year, especially when the likes of Apple are already doing 256GB?
These are just rumors and cannot be confirmed so far, so take them with a pinch of salt, but it won’t be long before we find out clearer details about this Mi 6 flagship. Keep following us!
