Xiaomi is already working on their flagship for next year which should naturally be called the Xiaomi Mi 6. Xiaomi is known for using Qualcomm processors for their flagships, so its not a surprise to learn that the Mi 6 will launch with the new Snapdragon 835 chip. What is surprising is the fact that it may have variants with different processors.
The news comes from leakster @Kjuma who posted on his Weibo page that the Xiaomi Mi 6 will have three variants with different processors and will be named Mi 6S, 6E, and 6P.
While we advice that you take the info with a pinch of salt until it is confirmed, we shouldn’t rule out the possibility. It will be a deviation from what has become the norm but traditions can be broken. We believe one of the Mi 6 variants may sport the Helio X30 processor and the third variant might have Xiaomi’s in-house processor called Pinecone. That looks like the only plausible way it can happen.
- Xiaomi 6S(napdragon)
- Xiaomi 6P(inecone)
- Xiaomi 6hElio X30
It’s a wild guess from me but it makes sense, right? Because I don’t want to believe the E stands for Exynos.
We also get to see a render of the upcoming phone. The display is curved and the bezels are practically non-existent.
