Rumors suggest that three variants of Xiaomi Mi 6 are in works. Two variants are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. However, the first variant has quad HD resolution supporting dual-edge curved OLED display, 6 GB of RAM, 256 GB native storage, and dual rear camera.
The second variant has quad HD flat OLED display, 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB internal storage and dual rear camera. The third variant is rumored to be powered by MediaTek Helio X30 SoC and has 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB storage and dual rear camera.
