Xiaomi Mi 6 To Get Enough Supply Of Snapdragon 835 Chips, Says Analyst

by Jed John 4

One authentic source of information about the Chinese smartphone market has for a while now been Kevin Wang, research director at IHS China. Recently, Mr. Wang took to his Weibo (China’s Twitter) page to unleash some details about the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 6 and its impending launch with the Snapdragon 835 SoC.


The rumor mills have been spinning consistently in several directions concerning the details of the Mi 6. It is rumored in some quarters that the device would launch with a lower version of the SD 835 since Samsung is reserving the higher version for its Galaxy S8 flagship, while some others say the Mi 6 would come in a number of versions in order to mitigate the shortage of the SD 835 chip that would arise from low yield of the 10nm process and Samsung using it on its own Galaxy S8.

The analyst seems to suggest that both the Galaxy S8 and Mi 6 would be released this March just as rumored. In continuation of his bare-it-all Weibo posts, the analyst also disclosed that the Mi 6 would use the Snapdragon 835 processor with full processor frequency and that there is no low version of the device as rumored.

    well, as they ussaully sels devices in flash sales, in low numbers (meybe 50 000), they can get that much monthly….and full suply meybe in August or september

      but the competion has increased and the infamous flash sale is not going to help them.

        i belive that tey can allways sell 50 – 100 000 in a flash sale to chinese fans.
        it’s not a big number for that country, but overal it is great…so my idea is that they will do so two or tree times before SD835 get avaible (someware im late May or June) in big numbers….so in that way they will keep momentum and their fans will wait for avabillity.

        but i do agree flash sales won’t do much…it will just make them first amog chinese competiton with device powered by SD835.

        they still have good sale, even though it is decrised from last year….if they do better job with Mi6 than with M5, they could sell it nice.
        but xiaomi is best in low range device, and thet is where they boost their sales…Redmi series is for a big sales, MI not that much…and that’s why competition has better devices and better support in high end segment (even if that cost more, like Huawei , but it gives real service networks and waranty to all of their buyers over the whole world)
