According to the images and info from the China-based site MyDrivers.com, the Xiaomi Mi 6 could have 4G of RAM and a flatscreen display, while the Mi 6 Pro could have 6GB of RAM and a curved display, similar to how Samsung launched the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in 2016.

The same site claims both phones will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor,  along with its Quick Charge 4 technology. They could also have a front fingerprint sensor and a 4,000mAh battery. The site claims the launch price for the Xiaomi Mi 6 could be 1,999 yuan (about $288) while the Mi 6 Pro could be priced at 2,499 yuan (about $360).

Keep in mind that the leaked images and hardware specs have not been confirmed, so take all of these reports with a grain of salt. The Mi 6 and Mi 6 Pro could get officially revealed by Xiaomi by the beginning of February, again according to these unconfirmed reports. However, that would be in line with the official reveal of the Mi 5 which was announced in February 2016.
