The new flagship of Xiaomi is going to hit the market on February 14, according to some rumors. Other sources say the Xiaomi Mi 6 launch was pushed back to April. And finally we have heard earlier it will be available for purchase sometime in March. No matter when this phone will be released, it’s going to become a game changer. There were leaks claiming the new Xiaomi Mi 6 will come in two versions – flat screen and curved screen. But the latest leaks show that next Xiaomi Mobile will have three versions.
The Xiaomi Mi 6 will sport Qualcomm’s latest chipset dubbed as the Snapdragon 835. This is the first 10nm SoC of the chip maker, and it’s going to grab all the prizes. We have already seen the spotted Mi 6 AnTuTu result of 250.000 that simply means this CPU will be a beast. However, it’s said the Xiaomi Mi 6’s third version will sport MediaTek Helio X30 SoC. The latter will be priced at 1999 yuan ($288), and it will be the most affordable offer of this phone.
Other than that the Xiaomi Mi 6 will comes with the Snapdragon 835. One model will sport a flat screen and cost around 2499 yuan ($360), while the second version will sport a curved screen and cost 2999 yuan $(432). This means the Mi 6 will be considered as the cheapest Snapdragon 835-powered device in the high-end smartphone market.
The previous flagships from this line in face of the Xiaomi Mi 5S and Mi 5S Plus didn’t implemented the mission put on them. And the most explainable reason of that failure was conditioned with the mismatch of the rumors and reality. I mean we have been waiting to see a ceramic body, a curved screen and many high-end features on the Mi 5S, but none of the mentioned specs appeared. Seems the company is going to fix this and the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 6 will sport a ceramic body as well as a curved screen.
As for memory, there will be 4GB for the flat and X30 version, while the curved screen model will come with a 6GB of RAM. Thus the Xiaomi Mi 6 will sport better (or identical) features compared to the Xiaomi Mi Note 2, and most likely the latter will remain out of the game.
