Leaked: Xiaomi Mi 6 and Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus Spec Sheets

They’re both packing the supposedly Samsung-hoarded Snapdragon 835.

Xiaomi’s next-gen flagship line, the Mi 6 and its larger sibling, the Mi 6 Plus are both expected for an official release in April, according to the rumor mill. Crowdsourced site Slashleaks – one of the more reliable leaksters out there – has recently posted alleged spec sheets for both handsets. Let’s check them out and see if Xiaomi’s upcoming flagships are worth the wait.

Xiaomi Mi 6 (Rumored Specs)

  • 2.45GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor
  • Qualcomm Adreno 540 GPU
  • 4GB/6GB RAM
  • 5.15-inch FHD display, 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • 32GB/64GB/128GB internal storage, UFS 2.0
  • 19-megapixel rear camera, Sony IMX400 sensor
  • 8-megapixel front camera, UltraPixel
  • Dual SIM
  • 3200mAh battery
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow (MIUI 8)

Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus (Rumored Specs)

  • 2.45GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor
  • Qualcomm Adreno 540 GPU
  • 6GB RAM
  • 5.7-inch FHD display, 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • 64GB/128GB internal storage, UFS 2.0
  • 12-megapixel dual rear cameras, Sony IMX362 sensor
  • 8-megapixel front camera, UltraPixel
  • Dual SIM
  • 4500mAh battery
  • Android 7.0 Nougat (MIUI 8)

Interestingly enough, the leak points to the Mi 6 and Mi 6 Plus shipping with a Snapdragon 835, erroneously marked as “quad-core”. A few months ago, several tech blogs floated the rumor that Samsung was hoarding the initial batches of Qualcomm’s next flagship-tier chipset for their upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8. We’ll find out come launch day whether Xiaomi was able to secure their piece of the SD835 pie for their own devices.

As for hardware configuration, both handsets share mostly similar specifications. The Plus comes in a larger, phablet-sized form factor, though, still with non-QHD resolution. The phablet also packs a dual rear camera setup, but with weaker Sony IMX sensors compared to its smaller sibling. Both smartphones’ front snappers have UltraPixel technology, which basically results in better shot quality, especially in low-light conditions.

Unusual in the spec sheets is the difference in OS between the two Mi 6 units. The Mi 6 will run with the Marshmallow version of MIUI 8 while the Mi 6 Plus, the Nougat-based MIUI 8. Since both handsets are expected to launch in the same event, that’s an unusual thing indeed. Leaks will be leaks, we’re guessing? Expect more leaks and changes to come as we near the release window.

As for pricing scheme, we’ll have to wait a little longer, as there’s no mention of that in Slashleak’s post.
