Xiaomi Has announced on their official Social Media Platforms that it will launch its 2017 Flagship Smartphone Xiaomi Mi6 on 19th April in Bejing, China. And the company has already started teasing the Upcoming device in a series of videos.
The latest among those videos gives us a hint that the Xiaomi Mi6 might come with 6 GB RAM Instead of the previously rumored 4 GB. Xiaomi in their first two videos has already confirmed that Mi6 will come with a Dual-Camera setup and a curved display along with curved back. These Videos were spotted on Xiaomi’s Official Chinese website.
Other rumors Suggest that the phone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Chipset. Some rumors even suggest that there might be a cheaper variant that will be powered by the companies homemade 64-bit Surge S1 SoC.
The leaked images of the Xiaomi Mi6 also show the device sporting Dual-Camera setup With a Front Mounted Fingerprint Scanner. The benchmarks of Mi6 from Geekbench were leaked by the same source that leaked the images. Benchmarks show the Smartphone phone using Snapdragon 835 but interestingly the CPU is clocked at 1.9Ghz whereas the SD 835 clock speed is 2.45Ghz.
According to the sources, Xiaomi Mi6 will have a 5.15-Inch Display with full HD(1920×1080) Resolution along with 19 MP Rare Camera with Sony IMX400 sensor and a 8 MP Ultrapixel Front Camera.The whole device will be powered by a 3200mAh Non-removable battery. Xiaomi is expected to launch a bigger variant of Mi6 called Mi6 plus. Mi6 Plus will sport a larger 5.7-Inch Display with Full HD resolution along with a 12 MP Dual Rare Camera with Sony IMX362 sensor and a 8 MP Ultrapixel Front Camera. Mi6 plus might come with a mammoth Non-removable 4500mAh battery.
Leaks suggest that Mi6 Plus might be the one with 6 GB RAM, 64GB/128GB ROM and the regular Mi6 might come with 4 GB/6 GB RAM, 32GB/64GB/128GB ROM. 6 GB RAM coupled with Snapdragon 835 will surely produce some incredible Performance. But Does it match the performance of the rumored OnePlus 5 with 8 GB RAM?
Even though Xiaomi launched Mi5s with Snapdragon 821 in china it never made its way to India. It is highly unlikely that Mi6 Plus will ever make its way to India.
Xiaomi Has seen incredible success in India becoming the second largest smartphone company in India. Recently they have sold more than 250,000 units of Redmi 4A in its first flash sale. Xiaomi also said that it is planning on selling 7 million Units of Redmi Note 4. It has also officially entered the Offline market previously dominated by Vivo and Oppo(Both Owned By BBK Electronics).
The success of Xiaomi is mainly due to its aggressive pricing and delivering Flagship Grade performance at that Price. Xiaomi Has been dominating the Budget Smartphone market in India for a while now. Mi6 and Mi6 Plus is also expected to be priced similarly, Mi6 is rumored to cost anywhere from 25k- 29K in India. Xiaomi has not spoken a word about the existence of Mi6 Plus till now. We might have to wait till April 19th to Know more about it.
