If rumours are to be believed, Xiaomi Mi 6 will be unveiled in three variants with the expected launch during the upcoming MWC 2017. While the budget-friendly model of the phone will be equipped with MediaTek processor, the other two premium models will feature Snapdragon processor.

Expected to be unveiled at MWC 2017, the Xiaomi Mi 6 is expected to ship from April. According to GizChina, the Mi 6 will ship with Helio X30 and Snapdragon 835 processors.

On the specifications front, the Xiaomi Mi 6 will ship with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. However, the Mi 6 Pro will be infused with 6GB RAM paired with 256GB internal storage.

The main attraction of the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 6 is the integration of a dual-rear camera sensor. However, we don’t have any information about the kind of sensors integrated with the handset.

During the recently concluded Geek Park Innovation conference in Beijing, Xiaomi VP Li Wanqiang had disclosed that the company would release a surprise product in March 2017.
