Xiaomi is expected to announce the Xiaomi Mi 6 in the coming weeks, and the device just leaked once again. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll get to see a couple of images which are showing off the Xiaomi Mi 6 sketches. We cannot confirm these images are legit, of course, but they might be. Now, this phone does resemble the Xiaomi Mi 5 quite a bit from the front, while it’s similar to the Xiaomi Mi 5s when you look at its back, read on.
The device seems to be made out of metal, even though these are sketches, so we cannot really be sure of that. The company’s logo is placed on the back of the device, and you’ll also notice a dual camera setup there, while a dual-LED flash seems to be placed next to those camera sensors. The phone sports a home button below the display, and we’re presuming this key is clickable, though it is possible we’re looking at a capacitive key, as we’ve seen on the OnePlus 3T, for example. In any case, that key doubles as a fingerprint scanner, and there are two capacitive keys next to it, same as on the Xiaomi Mi 5. Those two capacitive keys can be inverted in MIUI, which means that you can choose which one will be the back key, and which one will serve as an overview (multitasking) button. A Type-C USB port is placed on the bottom of this phone, and is flanked by two speaker grills. The power / lock, volume up and volume down buttons are all included on the right-hand side of this smartphone, and the phone’s back is curved, as it was on the Xiaomi Mi 5 and Mi 5s.
Now, according to the latest info, the Xiaomi Mi 6 will come in two variants, a based model and a special edition ceramic variant, same as last year’s Mi 5 handset. The base model is rumored to sport 4GB of RAM, while the ceramic variant could ship with 6GB of RAM on the inside. Both devices are said to come with the Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor, though a third variant with the Helio X30 64-bit deca-core SoC was also mentioned in some rumors. Android Nougat will come pre-installed on the Xiaomi Mi 6, and chances are that the phone will ship with a 5.2-inch display, at least one of its variants will. Lots of conflicting rumors surfaced lately, so it’s kind of difficult to pinpoint legit ones, but we do hope that the XiaomI Mi 6 will launch in the next couple of weeks.
