Update [April 19, 2017]: Xiaomi has officially unveiled the Mi6 now. Find the official images, specs and pricing at our Mi6 announcement page here, while keep a tab on our Xiaomi Mi6 page for all news related to Mi6 and Mi6 ceramic edition.
We are just a day away from the official launch of Xiaomi’s next flagship handset, the Xiaomi Mi6 and there is certainly no dearth of last minute leaks. A new image render of what could be the Mi6 surfaced only revealing a stunning design.
If the above image is believed to be legit, the smartphone will have a dual camera setup at the back, as expected. Although not confirmable, Xiaomi’s next offering seems to don a metal and glass sandwiched body judging by the above images.
Sadly, though, the device doesn’t seem to have a bezel-free display which has become a norm of sorts for flagship handsets of late.
Also, if you observe carefully, the Xiaomi Mi6 from the above image looks like a clear rip-off of — you guessed it — the Huawei Honor 8. We are not sure how legit these images are, but if the final product turns out to be anything as evident from these images, it will be both good news and bad news.
Good because the Honor 8 looks pretty impressive design wise and bad owing to the fact that the Mi6 will be an exact replica of the former minus the placement of fingerprint sensor.
The Xiaomi Mi6 is expected to come with a 5.15-inch Full HD display with Snapdragon 835 under-the-hood. It is believed to come in two storage variants: 64GB and 128GB. In both the cases, it will pack 4GB of RAM. It is expected to run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box with MIUI 9 atop.
A 3,200mAh battery is believed to provide the juice for the handset. Alongside the Mi6, the company is also expected to launch the Mi6 Plus at the same event. While the former is tipped to be priced at CNY 2,199, the latter is said to carry a price tag of CNY 2,699.
