Just yesterday we heard of Xiaomi Mi 6 launch date being pushed to April from February 2017. Now if new reports are to be believed, the Xiaomi Mi 6 will be officially announced on February 6 and will be available for purchase from March onwards.
The reason for the earlier delay was tipped to attributed to Xiaomi’s decision to include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset which as per the rumours won’t be ready until February. As of now, the Snapdragon 835 processor is expected to come in a couple of flagship smartphones that are expected to be launched in 2017, one of the being the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Now as per a post by an analyst Kevin Wang Diary on Chinese micro blogging website, Weibo, the available supply for the Snapdragon 835 is although small but it would not hamper the launch date of Xioami Mi 6 as Xiaomi has already started receiving shipments of the Snapdragon 835 SoC. Furthermore, another report also surfaced which has revealed the launch date of Xiaomi Mi on 6 February 2017.
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.
