For a while, rumors about a forthcoming smartphone flagship, Xiaomi Mi6, from Xiaomi have floated around. In addition to a 4K display capability, it has been leaked that this new product is also equipped with a 16-core processor.
Amid all the uncertainties surrounding the next item from the Chinese tech firm, what is likely to occur is the company's participation during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona this February 2017. It is probable that the Mi6 will be unveiled there.
It is perceived that Xiaomi's newest handset will initially surface in Mainland China. Judging from this scenario, the devices will be marketed by noted importers like GearBest and Geekbuying.
Observers anticipate that Xiaomi will be introducing three models, namely, the Mi6 Lite, the Mi6 Standard and the Mi6 Pro. Sony will probably integrate a 4MP front lens and a 12MP sensor-supported rear camera.
In terms of design, the metal-cased unit will have a home button where a fingerprint sensor is embedded. It is likely that an OLED surface will be placed. RAM capability will possibly range between 4GB to 6GB with 128GB to 256GB memory storage.
Based on the full HD screens installed in previous Xiaomi items, the immediate jump to Ultra HD, as initially leaked, is quite questionable. Considering that the mobile industry is trending on VR components, the adjustment will most probably be focused on instituting the Quad-HD display.
The approach fits into the VR procedure and besides, integrating the quad element will still provide a full HD picture. Meanwhile, the 16-core approach is just out of line. As of late, the availability of two highly-functional processors does not support the specification involved.
Samsung and Qualcomm have unveiled the octa-core Snapdragon 835. Incorporating the hardware with a deca-core Helio X30 set does not match the perceived 16-chip outlook. Be it known that this 10nm Snapdragon processor enhances functionality by 30 percent in terms of efficiency, 27 percent with regard to performance and 40 percent in terms of sustainability.
Considering that the mobile industry is leaning towards a dual-curved edge frame, it is possible that the Xiaomi Mi6 will assume the said structure. With a highly-efficient Snapdragon processor in place, it is likely that the unit will need the Quick Charge 4.0 component which can actually support five hours of power resulting from a five-minute loading.
