Xiaomi Mi 6: The internet is rampant today with rumors pertaining to Xiaomi devices, and the one receiving the most attention is the Xiaomi Mi 6. The upcoming smartphone was recently spotted in the form of leaked renders, which showed off a sleek new all-black model. But thanks to keen-eyed enthusiasts, we now have a confirmation of sorts of some of the internal specifications of the upcoming smartphone.
Some sources have spotted a new picture that seems to detail some key facts about the Xiaomi Mi 6. Much of the information is written in Chinese, but GizmoChina points out something crucial about the processor. The upcoming device is said to be powered by Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 835 chipset, but the shot does not explicitly mention that. Instead, it states that the Mi 6 will run on a quad-core SoC that will be clocked at 2.7 GHz. Other accompanying bits of information relay that the handset might come with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of memory. It also clearly indicates that the smartphone will run Android version 7.0 with Xiaomi’s custom skin on top.
The bit about the processor is the most interesting, and it also raises a lot of question. It is a known fact that the Snapdragon 835 will be built on an octa-core configuration, and the highest clock speeds it will be capable of reaching is of 2.45 GHz. So it is unclear which processor the information listed in the shot actually refers to. The alternative theory is that the picture pertains to the more basic variant of the Mi 6, which is expected to come with a quad-core SD 821 SoC, as the report speculates.
Let us note that all this should be considered with enough doubts in mind, as the information is based entirely on speculation, which seems to be in abundance about this device in particular. The Xiaomi Mi 6 is expected to arrive on the market in at least three different variants, among which only the premium one is said to come with an SD 835 under the hood. This itself serves as the source of another rumor, which notes that the smartphone’s earlier anticipated April launch may have been delayed to May due to availability issues.
