Xiaomi Mi 6 Is Using A Full Version of SD835, Unlike What’s Written on Its Website

by Jed John 9

After the Xiaomi Mi 6 was launched a controversy over the Snapdragon 835 processor emerged. In Xiaomi’s official website, the Snapdragon 835 chip onboard the Mi 6 was listed to feature an Adreno 540 GPU with a clock frequency of 653MHz. Whereas, the official Qualcomm listing for the SD 835 pegged the GPU frequency at 710MHz. This, thus, fuel speculations that the Mi 6 comes with a Snapdragon 835 chip with reduced frequency.


This question has remained unanswered since then but a Weibo user has shared a GFXBench result that shows that the Xiaomi Mi 6 was able to attain a GPU frequency of 710MHz and was even able to surpass that up to 800MHz. One wonders what sort of lapse could have caused this reduced GPU listed. Is Xiaomi trying to play safe? Perhaps, an official statement might emerge soon. We’ll keep you posted as usual here on Gizmochina if that happens.

As a recap, the Xiaomi Mi 6 features a 5.15-inch 1080p display and is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 chipset backed by just 6GB of RAM on all versions. There is 64GB storage version, as well as a higher 128GB version. Both versions are expandable. The device uses a curved glass body with a metal fuselage and also comes with an anti-splash body.

    Redmi Note 2 was my first xiaomi phone, I love it, but now Xiaomi just makes devices like everyone else… Will there ever be a Xiaomi with removable battery, dual sim and micro sd again? From what I read, I guess not. Any good recommendations for a ~5″ phone with those specs? Lenovo K5 Vibe was one of the better options I found (K6 being with non removable battery, too…), anything else I missed?

      If they use lossless audio, the sound is a big improvement so this looks like a big win, I’m just going to use and adapter, until I buy the proper headphones.

        At least introduce adaptor that can charge simultaneously
