The Xiaomi Mi 6 has been rumored to come with Xiaomi’s own made Pinecone chip. It has been considered to be a game changer. But Xiaomir recently announced its first Surge S1 chip, and we learned it can be used only for mid-range devices. The Mi 6 should get the best SoC in the market. The Snapdragon 835 is the one at the moment. So, no matter how much we want to see Xiaomi’s in-house chip on a high-end device, this is not the case. On the other hand, there will be the highest version of the SND835 chip. Therefore, no reason to worry about.
As for the rest of features, the Xiaomi Mi 6 is said to be packed with a 5.2-inch display with 2.5D arc glass as well as ceramic body. Another great options of this handset is going to be the newest Sony imaging sensor found on the Xperia XZ Premium. It comes with a 1/3″ sensor size and the Motion Eye camera is capable of recording videos at 960fps.
Now when we know when this handset will be available, let’s take a peek at its pricing. There are a few price tags depending on memory combination. The 4GB + 32GB variant is priced at 1999 yuan ($289) and the 6GB + 128GB model comes at 2499 yuan ($362). But the latter also sport a ceramic housing. So the price tag is quite logic.
