At the end of September, 2016, Xiaomi has released a upgraded version, Xiaomi MI5S, according to their product line and release date, the next year flagship of Xiaomi will be Xiaomi MI6. Although there is a little long time to release the smartphone, right now there are more news about Xiaomi MI6 appearing.
It’s rumored that the leaked photo is Xiaomi MI6 which has been polished carefully with very sleek and smooth design, and sleek curved edge. Meanwhile, it adopts almost no-bezel design, there is a long semi-circular Home button under the screen,which is similar to Samsung home button. Due to Xiaomi MI5 back cover taking 3D curved design, we predict Xiaomi MI6 will also adopt.
According to the famous leaker, he posted on Weibo that Xiaomi MI6 will not use Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, it’s said the main reason is that Qualcomm hasn’t provided the best chipset for Xiaomi, for example, Xiaomi MI5 only use Snapdragon 820 low frequency version and Xiaomi MI5S with Snapdragon 821 2.15GHz low frequency version.
In addition, he also claims that Xiaomi MI6 has been planning to produce, currently, they have finished the appearance design, they will have two choices about chipset, one is Snapdragon 835, the other is Helio X30 which first uses 10nm architecture globally.
We think as a supporter for Qualcomm, Xiaomi can’t ditch Snapdragon processor for its next flagship smartphone currently. But parts of Xiaomi MI6 uses Snapdragon 835 processor, other parts uses Helio X30 processor, this kind of possibility will be possible. So which processor do you recommend Xiaomi to use?
