It has been quite some time since the Xiaomi Mi 5 – and its other iterations – was officially unveiled, and it appears the successor to the Mi 5 is just around the corner. Aptly dubbed the Xiaomi Mi 6, the new flagship will be announced next week on 19 April.
Beyond the launch date, however, not much is known about the Mi 6. Rumours, however, are suggesting that it will come in two variants: a standard Mi 6 with a 5.1-inch display, and a bigger Mi 6 Plus with a 5.7-inch display. Naturally, these two devices are said to be powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 835 processor as well.
The Xiaomi Mi 6 and Mi 6 Plus are further differentiated by the choice of internal storage and RAM. The Mi 6 is said to be available in 64GB and 128GB variants – both with 4GB of RAM – while the Mi 6 Plus is rumoured to come with more RAM at 6GB and three choices of storage space (64GB, 128GB, 256GB).
However, as is always the case with rumours, take these information with a grain of salt. After all, until the device – or devices – is actually unveiled, some things may be changed here and there.
Nonetheless, we will find our for ourselves just what the Xiaomi Mi 6 has to offer come 19 April. It’ll be interesting to see if Xiaomi will pull off another surprise like the Xiaomi Mi Mix at the launch event next week.
