Xiaomi Mi 6 to launch next month, confirms CEO Lei Jun


Xiaomi is on track to releasing its flagship smartphone for this year i.e. the Mi 6. While the date of the phone’s launch has been unknown until now, the company’s CEO Lei Jun, through a live streaming talk, confirmed that the Mi 6 will be launched some time next month. As far as the exact date is concerned, it is said that it might get unveiled on April 11, as per certain rumours.


The phone’s spy shot was revealed earlier today which shows its likeness to the Galaxy S8. The handset is believed to have thin bezels with a larger screen ratio. The phone is supposed to sport a 5.2-inch display on the standard variant, whereas a 5.7-inch display might be seen on the Plus variant. Both the devices are expected to be fueled with a Snapdragon 835 SoC offering a 4GB/6GB of RAM with 64GB/128GB of internal storage.

The leaked image is a lot different from what we had seen in the earlier images as far as the camera is concerned. The phone now has a dual camera setup in a vertical position with an LED flash between them. As for pricing, the standard variant is expected to be priced at CNY 1,999 (approximately ₹19,000), whereas the Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus with 6GB RAM variant might come for a price of CNY 2,999 (approximately ₹29,000). While the phone is inevitably going to launch next month, we suggest that you take the aforementioned image leak with a pinch of salt.
