Some new Xiaomi Mi 6 info has just surfaced, courtesy of an industry insider. This info comes from Weibo, a Chinese social network. According to the provided information, the Xiaomi Mi 6 will arrive in two variants, and unlike the leak that surfaced a couple of days ago which shared only the display difference between these two variants, today’s leak actually shares some more spec info when it comes to both of these devices, read on.
The Xiaomi Mi 6 ‘Standard Version’, which probably won’t be called that, but simply ‘Xiaomi Mi 6’, is said to ship with a fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, though the source does not mention its size. Well, if previous info is to be believed, the Xiaomi Mi 6 will have a rather small display for today’s standards, a 5.2-inch panel, similar to the 5.15-inch display that the Xiaomi Mi 5 shipped with. We also still don’t know whether the Xiaomi Mi 6 will ship with an OLED panel, or an LCD one. In any case, the source claims that the higher-end Xiaomi Mi 6 model, which will probably be called the Xiaomi Mi 6 Pro, or something of the sort, will ship with a QHD (2560 x 1440) display. If the source is to be believed, the base model of the Xiaomi Mi 6 will sport 4GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage, while the higher-end model will come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, while it will also be made out of ceramic, unlike the base model.
That’s not all, however, if the provided info is to be believed, both Xiaomi Mi 6 variants will come with the same 8-megapixel camera that can be found in the XiaomI Mi Note 2, which means we’ll get Sony’s IMX268 front-facing sensor in the Xiaomi Mi 6. The main camera on the Xiaomi MI 6 will, allegedly, be a 12-megapixel snapper (Sony’s IMX386 sensor). That’s pretty much all the info that the source shared, but in addition to all this, you can also expect this smartphone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, though Xiaomi’s MIUI 8 OS will be installed on top of it. The Xiaomi Mi 6 will not launch during the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, as Xiaomi will make any announcement during the tradeshow, nor will they have a booth in Barcelona, but you can expect the Mi 6 to land either in March or April.
