Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the Mi 6 is speculated to come in 3 variants each with different chipsets, a new leak suggests. The smartphone was earlier rumored to be equipped with Qualcomm’s upcoming SoC, the Snapdragon 835. However, in addition to this, expect the Mi 6 to come powered with a MediaTek’s Helio SoC and an in-house Pinecone SoC.
According to @KJuma, a China-based leakster, there will be three variants with the monikers Mi 6S, Mi 6E, and Mi 6P with each letter after the 'Mi 6’ representing the chipset name. For instance ’S’ in the Mi 6S represents the Snapdragon 835 SoC. Similarly, 'P’ represents Pinecone SoC and for some strange reason 'E’ represents MediaTek’s Helio SoC.
The leakster later adds that 'E’ could represent an Exynos chipset. But, we don’t think that’s happening anytime soon since there’s no news that both the companies struck any deal of late.
As far as other details are concerned, there’s no solid information available yet. Nevertheless, you can expect the smartphone to come with 6GB of RAM and Android 7.0 (or 7.1) Nougat based MIUI 9 among others.
