The official invitation to the presentation of the new flagship is the exact release date of the Xiaomi Mi6 and Mi6 Plus – April 19 this year. Thus, the smartphone will be presented exactly in a week.
The first was the authoritative insider Evan Blass, but then some Chinese experts promised that Xiaomi will present Mi6 on April 11, that is yesterday. However, this day there were no sensations.
The event will be held under the slogan “You waited 203 days, we waited 7 years”. Here 203 days is the time that elapsed since the last flagship of the line – Xiaomi Mi 5s, and 7 years – the age of the company itself, which was founded on April 6, 2010.
Xiaomi Mi6: Specifications and Price
It is believed that the price of the new Xiaomi Mi6 starts from the mark of 2199 yuan (about 320 US dollars). For this amount, it will be possible to purchase a “minimal” modification with 4 Gb of RAM and a built-in storage capacity of 32 Gb.
And the cost of the heaped Mi6 Plus with 6 Gb “RAM” and a 256 Gb drive will be about $ 535. However, it is rather a forecast based on a number of leaks of rather doubtful reliability.
Specifications Xiaomi Mi6 are known only in part. So, the smartphone should get the most powerful mobile processor Qualcomm – Snapdragon 835, and the screen resolution will be the previous FullHD 1080 × 1920 pixels with a diagonal of 5.15 inches or so.
With the camera, on the contrary, until the situation is obscure. Some sources include a single sensor of the latest generation Sony IMX400 (this already stands inside Xperia XZ Premium), in others – a dual camera with Sony IMX362 modules. It is possible that the last solution will be only for the modification of the Mi6 Plus.
The latter will be larger (the screen diagonal is 5.7-5.8 inches with QHD resolution of 1440 × 2560 pixels), a capacious 4200 mAh battery and, possibly, a camera (as mentioned above).
In this case, the Xiaomi Mi6 will look like the most that is a classic smartphone like Huawei P9, no experiments with extra large screens and frameless designs (for this the company has a new line of Mix).
The main advantage of Xiaomi is still the lowest price for such a powerful “filling”. Samsung Galaxy S8 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium stand very severely, and LG G6 and Huawei P9, in fact, are the flagships only by the standards of the end of 2016.
