Many are eagerly waiting for the next flagship model from Xiaomi, but recent reports suggested that the launch of the upcoming Mi 6 will be delayed by few more day. Initially, it was expected to be launched in April, but due to lack of availability of Snapdragon 835 SoC, we might see Xiaomi use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor for the lower version of the Mi 6. It is also rumored that Mi 6 will be coming in three different variants and while the standard variants are expected to feature 4GB RAM while the high-end variant will sport 6GB RAM.
New rumors suggest the Snapdragon 821 also, but we have to wait for few more days until we get an official word from the company on the same. According to the earlier leaks, these devices will come with dual rear cameras and will be sporting 4GB/6GB RAM. It is also rumored to come with 2K OLED display, but nothing is known about the size yet.
The Xiaomi Mi 6 has been in the rumor mill for quite a time now, and recent leaks revealed the dual camera setup. Now, according to the new leaks, the device is said to come with Sony IMX400 sensor, and this source from China also revealed that there would be two different version of the device, one bearing a 5.15-inch screen while the other will sport a bigger 5.7 display. We saw Xiaomi announcing its Mi 5 smartphone last year at MWC, but this year it did not announce it there.
According to the earlier leaks, we know that the Mi 6 will come powered with Snapdragon 835 processor and the new leaks also reveal the same for both the variants of the Mi 6. The successor of the Mi 5 is said to come with IMX400 sensor and is the same 3-layer stacked CMOS imager that was announced by the company a few weeks ago. This is the same sensor that was used in Xperia XZ Premium and XZs that showed its 960fps high frame rate shooting.
The upcoming flagship model will come in 4GB and 6GB RAM variants, and there will be no expandable storage option like we have seen in most of the smartphones from the company. Nothing much about the other specs is known yet, but we have to take all these information with a pinch of salt as nothing is confirmed by the company yet.
From the earlier rumors, the device is said to be launched on April 16 and we can expect it to be available in its home country initially and will be rolled out globally gradually. We can expect more and more leaks to come by the time the smartphone gets an official announcement from the company. Are you excited to get this upcoming flagship device from Xiaomi?
