A new report out of China has revealed some more info regarding Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the Mi 6. Well, if the report is to be believed, there will be two variants of the Mi 6 – the regular Mi 6 and a Mi 6 Plus with a larger display. This is not the first time that two Mi 6 variants have been rumored, so it does seem like a real possibility to us now.
The smaller Mi 6 will reportedly feature a 5.15-inch sized display, while the bigger Mi 6 Plus is going to sport a 5.7-inch display. These two variants are expected to differ in a few other areas as well. While the regular Mi 6 is tipped to feature a single camera lens at the back, the Mi 6 Plus is said to feature a dual-camera setup, laid out in a similar horizontal layout as on the iPhone 7 Plus. The regular Mi 6 at least, is expected to feature the new Sony IMX400 sensor at the back. The report does not clarify if the bigger Mi 6 Plus will come with dual IMX400 sensors or two different sensors.
The Mi 6 is also expected to pack a 3200mAh capacity battery, which only a small improvement when compared to the Mi 5 from last year. Despite a relatively small battery inside, the smartphone will apparently have an 8mm thick profile, 0.7mm thicker than its predecessor.
Both variants will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 octa-core chipset under the hood, manufactured on a 10nm process by Samsung. As far as memory goes, the Mi 6 will ship with 4GB of RAM paired with 32GB of internal memory while the bigger Mi 6 Plus will include 4GB of RAM paired with 64GB of internal storage. In terms of pricing, the report claims the Mi 6 will start at 1999 yuan ($289) in China, while the Mi 6 Plus will start at 2499 yuan ($360). These prices definitely sound very impressive, although we will need to take the numbers with a pinch of salt for now.
