China’s Apple Xiaomi is expected to launch Xiaomi Mi6 in the first quarter of 2017. Xiaomi has a launch event scheduled in China for February 6 where it will most likely take the wraps off its upcoming flagship smartphone. Since MWC 2017 is around the corner, rumour has it that the phone will also be showcased during the event in Barcelona. Latest leak point out that Xiaomi Mi6 will be available in two variants — 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM. The standard 4GB RAM variant will sport a flat display whereas the top-end 6GB RAM model will flaunt a curved screen.
Interestingly, both the models are tipped to be powered by Snapdragon 835, which Qualcomm unveiled at the recently held CES 2017. The report in question further implies that the phone may not arrive featuring a dual-camera setup. The standard variant is said to be priced at 1,999 Yuan (approximately Rs 19,700). The premium variant, on the other side, is said to cost 2,499 Yuan (approximately Rs 24,650). However, do remember that none of these details are confirmed just yet. Hence, there are possibilities that we will come across more such leaks and rumours in the coming weeks.
Recently, a report emerged showing the AnTuTu benchmarking score of the prototype version of Xiaomi Mi6. The phone topped the score with 2,10,329 points which is much higher than “any” Android smartphone currently available in the market. However, we couldn’t verify the authenticity of the screenshot present inside the report. While no concrete details are available at the moment, Xiaomi Mi6 will supposedly run 6GB RAM and Android Nougat out-of-the-box.
