November 25, 2016

According to the images and info from the China-based site, 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.

      They might will skip the number 4 and jump to 5, but yeah, im excited about their new phone too. Hope they dont raise the prices further, they are already more than $100 away from the OnePlus Ones starting price

    The child of the Google Pixel, and the iPhone 7 :D

    I’d like it, but too much copy designwise :/

    Xiaomi has proven that it can make creative and good-looking phones, i like its own designs.

    That’s insane how quickly these manufacturers are releasing their phones. Damn. I still have my Z5 and as much of a disappointment that was to me. I dont plan on getting any new phone for a while until I have an absolutely proper upgrade.

      😃😃😂😂😁 furious with release cycles

      • CypherGate

        Yeah it’s crazy. lol I remember how Sony related the Z series so often that the changes didn’t even make much sense! This just shows the way these companies work is that they will release like 3 of the same models with minor upgrades which won’t justify the upgrade then their 4th version will be like a big upgrade. so in effect they release those 3 minor upgrades to finance the bigger one. still annoying as hell though!

          I really don’t think Sony uses any survey of the market. They always do what they want.

    I hope xiaomi mi6 pro has ceramic backing like mi5 pro

    • MrcheGuev

      Exactly what i hope to ceramic is very interresting to find in a phone for me ^^

    I might think of buying it if the camera is good, I doubt it though.
