According to a new rumor which comes from China, the Xiaomi Mi 6 Premium will sport a ceramic body and 6GB of RAM. As many of you know, Xiaomi likes to use ceramic in their premium products, the company had released the Xiaomi Mi 5 Pro with a ceramic body last year, well, its back cover was made out of ceramic and plastic underneath. The Xiaomi Mi MIX comes with plenty of ceramic as well, and it seems like the company plans to use ceramic yet again in order to make its highest-est Xiaomi Mi 6 smartphone even more special.
As some of you know, Xiaomi is rumored to release three Xiaomi Mi 6 variants, and the highest end one will probably have the ‘Premium’ tag attached to it. Well, even though a recent report said that Xiaomi has no plans to participate at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, they’re still expected to introduce the Xiaomi Mi 6 in the coming months. In addition to sporting a ceramic body and 6GB of RAM, this handset will probably come with a curved display on the sides, at least if some previous info is to be believed. The other two Xiaomi Mi 6 models which will ship with 4GB of RAM will come with flat displays. The most affordable Xiaomi Mi 6 model will be fueled by the Helio X30 64-bit deca-core processor it seems, while the other two models will ship with the Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core chip, which is Qualcomm’s all-new flagship processor.
All Xiaomi Mi 6 models are expected to pack in a 3,000mAh battery on the inside, and ship with a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera (Sony’s IMX362 sensor most probably). Android Nougat will come pre-installed on the Xiaomi Mi 6, though chances are we won’t see MIUI 9 on top of it, as it’s highly unlikely MIUI 9 will be ready by the time Xiaomi releases the Xiaomi Mi 6. The Helio X30-powered Xiaomi Mi 6 is rumored to cost 1,999 Yuan ($291), while the other two variants will probably be priced at 2,499 Yuan ($363) and 2,999 Yuan ($436). This is all rumored info at this point, the company did not confirm anything thus far, so take it with a grain of salt, of course.
