As per reports, Xiaomi Mi 6 might be the first smartphone to come with Snapdragon 835 SoC and looks like a shrunk down version of the Mi Note 2 in terms of the design.
If the new reports are to be believed, the Xiaomi Mi 6 which is expected to be unveiled on February 6, 2017 will look like an earlier launched Xioami Mi Note 2 but apparently smaller in size.
As per a post by a Chinese tipster on Chinese micro blogging website, Weibo, the Xiaomi Mi 6 might be the first smartphone to come with Snapdragon 835 SoC and looks like a shrunk down version of the Mi Note 2 in terms of the design. The post further said that the Xiaomi Mi 6 will be powered by Snapdragon 835 SoC and will be made official in February which is inline with what we heard off yesterday. Apart from that, the tipster also revealed that the device will come in three - black, white, and blue colour options and will have 128GB and 256GB internal storage variants.
As per earlier reports, Xiaomi Mi 6 is expected to come with 6GB RAM and feature USB Type C support. It will reportedly run on Android 7.0 or 7.1 Nougat update with MIUI 9 OS on top of it. For the photography, Xiaomi Mi 6 is touted to come with dual camera setup and support Xiaomi Fast charge, claims rumours. This in contrary to previous leaked renders of the device which interestingly revealed a single camera setup which is why we advise our readers to take this information with a pinch of salt as it is not yet confirmed by the company yet.
On the other hand, Xioami Mi Note 2 comes with a 5.7 inch OLED flexible display which curved around the edges making it a 77.2 percent screen to body ratio. On the inside, it is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset clocked at 2.35 GHz and Adreno 530 GPU. The smartphone comes with either 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage or 6GB RAM + 128GB internal storage.
The smartphone boasts a 22.56-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, and EIS with its own 3-axis gyroscope for 4K video stabilisation coupled with an 8-megapixel shooter with f/2.0 aperture. Further, to power up the device, there is 4070 mAh battery which supports Quick Charge 3.0.
