“The Mi 6C will allegedly offer up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage”
There have been several reports in the past, which have suggested that Xiaomi is working on a new variant of the Mi 6 (first impressions) smartphone that will be called the Mi 6C. Now a new report from the Chinese publication IT Home suggests that Xiaomi will be unveiling the Mi 6C in the fourth quarter of this year. The source has also revealed the key specifications of the phone.
As per the report, the Xiaomi Mi 6C will feature a double-sided 2.5D curved glass design, which will appear quite similar to the Mi 6’s four-sided curved edge design. The screen-to-body ratio of the device will allegedly be higher than that of the Mi 6. The phone will feature a dual camera setup at the rear – a 12MP Sony IMX386 CMOS sensor and a 5MP depth of field secondary sensor.
The report adds that the Mi 6C will be powered by the brand’s in-house Surge S2 processor, which could also end up being called Surge X1 chipset. The SoC is being produced using the 16nmTSMC fabrication process. The chipset will have four Cortex-A73 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores in an octa-core arrangement.
The source further suggests that the Mi 6C will be launched in two RAM and storage configurations – 4GB + 64GB and 6GB + 128GB. The former will allegedly be priced at RMB 1,999, while the latter will go on sale for RMB 2,499.
