#Xiaomi #XiaomiMi6 – Xiaomi rumoured to launch Mi 6 in curved and flat display variants : While Samsung said to go all-curved on its flagships, a new leak suggests Xaiomi will adopt its galaxy S7 success strategy with its next top end phone. Rumour has it that the Chinese smartphone maker will be launching Mi 6 in two variants — one with a usual flat display and another with a curved one. Both of them will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset that was officially launched this month at CES and is being manufactured by Samsung.
Xiaomi Mi 6 is said to launch next month, ahead of 2017 flagships from Samsung and LG. Citing sources, Androidheadlines says that the flat display model will be priced at 1,999 CNY that roughly translates to Rs 19,700, while the curved display variant will cost around 2,499 CNY, which is about Rs 24,700 according to current exchange rates.
It also claims none of the two variants will have dual camera, something that has become a staple with flagships. The difference among the two models, apart from the display is that of the memory capacity. The cheaper variant will have 4GB RAM and the curved screen model will come with 6GB RAM.
As the previous leaks suggest, Mi6 will sport a design similar to the Mi Note 2. While the Mi Note 2 carries a 5.7-inch display, we expect the Mi 6 to come with a smaller screen size, around 5.15-inch. It will also have a physical home buttons below the display, housing the fingerprint sensor.
The phone will run Android Nougat 7.0 with Xiaomi’s MIUI 9 on top. Although it was said the phone may launch on February 6, or around the Valentine’s Day (which makes no sense), fresh rumours also suggest it may rather prefer the MWC stage.
