Xiaomi Mi6, the Chinese company's highly anticipated 2017 flagship, has featured in tech grapevine quite a lot of late. Now, fresh Xiaomi Mi 6 leaks indicate that the device could be unveiled in three variants. The cheapest variant of the three will be MediaTek powered, while the other two will sport Snapdragon's latest processor. The Xiaomi smartphone is also now tipped to be unveiled at MWC 2017, and the shipping could begin in April.
The first model will come equipped with Helio X30 processor and is said to carry a price tag of $290. The second model will run Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 835, which was recently showcased at CES 2017. It will cost about $360 and is likely to come with 4GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
The third variant Xiaomi Mi6 Pro is expected to sport a dual-edged curved display just like the Samsung Galaxy S7, and this will be the most premium variant priced at CNY 2,999 (roughly Rs. 29,800). Previous reports state that the curved screen variant is tipped to be called the Mi 6 Pro.
More recently however, Li Wanqiang, co-founder and VP of Xiaomi, revealed that his company will reveal a surprise product in March. The Mi 5 was first revealed in Mobile World Congress (MWC) last year, so many tend to believe that its successor, the Mi6, will make its debut on the same stage in the presence of the charismatic Hugo Barra, VP, Xiaomi.
