Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus Is Real & Should Launch Soon, Analyst Hints

by Jed John 5

Xiaomi yesterday unveiled the Mi 6 flagship with its many colour offerings. As was rumoured, many were still waiting of the Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus to be unveiled along with it but that never happened. The company ended the launch event without saying anything about a possible Mi 6 Plus. So, what happened? Does that mean that the Mi 6 Plus really didn’t exist?

We really can’t say why Xiaomi didn’t announce the Plus-size version with this one but according to a Weibo post by the well-known industry analyst, Pan Jiutang, the Mi 6 Plus is real. The trusted analyst, while responding to a Weibo post by Xiaomi phone official account, the analyst among other things hinted that the Mi 6 Plus may likely be released in two months time.

The Mi 6 Plus is expected to come with a bigger 5.7-inch display and the analyst also affirmed that. Earlier rumours had tipped the Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus to come with 6GB of RAM, 64GB / 128GB storage versions, Sony IMX362 12MP main camera, and an 8MP front camera (Ultrapixel) as well as a large 4,500mAh battery. The device may likely use the same 18W fast charger which was certified by China’s 3C. The Mi 6 Plus may also come with a different design from the Mi 6, especially the display. The Mi 6 Plus had earlier been rumoured to have a display similar to the Mi Mix, with narrower bezels. We’ll have to wait to see how this pans out.

    And I missed a hint for Daydream Ready. Is there no market for VR in China?

  • I agree with the Weibo post that suggests the only drawback of the Mi 6 is that it might be “a little bit heavy.” Yes, at 168 grams it is nearly 40 grams heavier than the Mi 5 at 129 grams and it is actually the exact same weight as their much larger 5.7 inch Mi 5S Plus – both are 168 grams. Yes, they added extra hardware so it maybe needed to be a bit heavier than the Mi 5 but that doesn’t explain why it’s still 23 grams heavier than the recently announced, similar sized Huawei P10. They could have saved a lot of weight by cutting down on the wide top and bottom bezels. Not a deal breaker but definitely a disappointing aspect of this new phone.

      That’s poor reasoning. Ask sammy or lg or huawei to provide phone with top notch specs like Mi6 and yet bezeless screen for a mere $360.
      Also Mi6 houses Bigger battery, dual speakers, dual cameras compared to S8 in much smaller body and yet i see complains on the bezel.
      Some things r limited by engineering limitations, no point unnecessarily crying abt them.

      • The Mi 5 had a pretty good camera and great battery life at a similar, reasonable price yet was only 129 grams. I could see going up to 145 grams, like the Huawei P10, but I can’t understand how it went from 129 grams to 168! I’m not ‘crying’ about it, I’m just raising the question. Why are you so defensive, do you own the company or something?

      Probably most of extra weight comes from stainless steel frame instead aluminium and larger battery. Ceramic back Mi5 was 10g heavier. Ceramic Mi6 is 182g.
