In a live stream session with the company’s fans recently, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun confirmed that the Mi 6 flagship smartphone will indeed be announced this month.
While Jun did not share a specific release date during the interaction, rumors suggest the unveiling could take place on either April 11 or April 18. The smartphone has been spotted on the China Compulsory Certification (CCC) website as well, which further confirms that the device’s official launch is indeed very close. In the coming days, we expect the Mi 6 to appear on the TENAA website as well. Unlike CCC, TENAA does list the key specifications of the handsets it certifies, so we can expect at least some key features of the Mi 6 to be confirmed very soon.
If rumors are to be believed, Xiaomi will be launching two distinct variants of the Mi 6. The first one will be the regular Mi 6 with a display size of 5.15-inches and the second will be a larger Mi 6 Plus variant with a 5.7-inch screen size. Both variants are expected to run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC under the hood, paired with up to 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The bigger Mi 6 Plus variant will be equipped with a dual-camera setup at the back while the regular Mi 6 is going to sport a single camera solution.
