Rumor: Xiaomi Mi 6 & Mi 6 Plus To Launch On April 11th

March 20, 2017 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

The Xiaomi Mi 6 rumors have been all over the place thus far, and a new one says that the phone will launch on April 11th. Now, we’ve seen a ton of leaked renders of the Xiaomi Mi 6, and even some allegedly legit real life images, but the problem is, all of those renders and images were different compared one to the other, more or less. In addition to that, the company’s flagship was rumored to arrive on April 16th, and a new rumor says that its launch date has been moved 5 days ahead, which means we could see it as early as April 11th.

The Xiaomi Mi 6 is the company’s upcoming flagship smartphone, a device which many people expected to see launch during MWC 2017 in Barcelona, well, until Xiaomi confirmed that they won’t be coming to MWC 2017. In any case, the Xiaomi Mi 6 is rumored to ship with the Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core SoC, and considering that SoC is in high demand, and the fact that Samsung already ‘stole’ the whole first batch of SD835 chips, Xiaomi was forced to postpone the launch date of the Xiaomi Mi 6, at least that’s what the rumors have been saying. In any case, the Xiaomi Mi 6 is now expected to land in April, and it is still expected to sport Qualcomm’s most powerful SoC, though there’s a slight chance Xiaomi might opt for the Helio X30, in case the Snapdragon 835 route doesn’t pan out.

The Xiaomi Mi 6 will, based on leaks, resemble its predecessor quite a bit. The device is expected to sport a front-facing fingerprint scanner / physical home key, though its bezels will be considerably thinner compared to the Xiaomi Mi 5. The Xiaomi Mi 6 will be made out of metal and glass, though a ceramic variant could become a reality as well, and that will be the most expensive variant of the Xiaomi Mi 6 out there. Android Nougat will come pre-installed on the Xiaomi Mi 6, though the device will ship with MIUI 8, as the MIUI 9 won’t become available until Q3 or Q4 this year. The device will probably sport 4GB and 6GB of RAM, depending on which variant you get, and we’re still not sure whether it will ship with a fullHD or a QHD display, though both models are a possibility. The Xiaomi Mi 6’s display will probably be quite compact, around 5.2-inches. That’s more or less it, stay tuned for more info.
