Xiaomi Mi 6: we’ve got all the news on its release date and specs

It has been a hectic week for Xiaomi – no doubt about it. After unveiling Xiaomi Redmi 4X and Mi 5C, they focused on promoting their first in-house Pinecone SoC (Surge S1) that will be used in the aforementioned Mi 5C model.

But what’s more to come from the Chinese company? Well, Xiaomi Mi 6 obviously, a smartphone that all of us here in GizChina are waiting impatiently to see and… touch! According to latest rumors the next flagship model of the company is planned to be unveiled next month (probably on April 16) and it will be the first Chinese smartphone to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC.

Gizchina News of the week

But news don’t stop here. Xiaomi has been notorioysly known for underclocking most of itss high specs smartphones but thankfyully this won’t be the case with the Mi 6 model. So we’re going to enjoy the full unleashed power of the Snapdragon 835 SoC – at least those of us who will buy the device!

The same rumors insist that the device will pack a 5.2 inch LCD display with 2.5D curved glass and it will also be available in one (expensive) ceramic variant. There will be in fact three variants of the device: one with 4GB RAM + 32GB ROM priced at ¥1999 (~$290), another with 4GB RAM+64GB and one (expensive) version with ceramic body (6GB RAM + 128GB) that will cost appriximately ¥2500 (~$362).

    I would change the full clocked version of the chip with a bigger battery any day of the week…

      You sir understand the wisdom of the big battery

    • March 4, 2017

      couldn’t have said it better myself

    My only gripe is 5.2″ display. If it were 5.5″ to 6″, I will gladly buy the ceramics version once it debuts.

      They do have Note, Redmi Note, Mix and possibly there will be more big screen devices, so if Mi6 is not by your taste, you can choose.

    My expectations are low for their flagship camera performance as usual

      March 3, 2017

      100% true..horrible avj camera..and why no 4gb+64 gb non-ceramic version(maybe 2299 yuan?)

    – Better batery (3.500mah)
    – Larger display (5.4-5.5 inch)
    – Better câmera (in low light)

    As always, the price doesn’t disappoint. Let’s just hope it’ll have global bands and OIS.

  7. March 3, 2017

    There should be a version with global LTE Bands, they have just today released a version of the Redmi Note 4 with FDD LTE band 4 among other bands. I have seen it for sale on a couple of websites – Honorbuy and TO2C.

    Hoping not to see stupid 16-20 MP sensors
    Let is be a successor of mi5s’s one
    bigger battery is OK but mi5s’s 3200 mah is way enough
    Hoping to see longer display and minimal bezels

    Interesting Xiaomi Mi 6 or OnePlus 4, which to go for ?

      Oneplus all the way… Near stock Android and international warranty, it’s not even a competition.

        Apparently it maybe called OnePlus 5 (according to rumours).
