Xiaomi is all set to unbox its 2017 flagship smartphone, the Mi 6. With leaks and speculations swirling around the smartphone, reports have suggested that the Xiaomi Mi 6 smartphone will be officially launched on Tuesday, April 19.
The report was spotted on Xiaomi official Weibo account, but surprisingly the information seems to have been mistranslated by several news outlets. Refuting the launch report, vincent_khoo, a super moderator from Xiaomi claimed that the Xiaomi Mi 6 will be unwrapped on April 19. The moderator confirmed the launch on MIUI Forum and said that the flagship will be officially announced in Beijing University Of Technology Gymnasium. The moderator also cited the April 11 launch to be fake news and asked the users to follow the MIUI Forum for official information and latest news.
Essentially, Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun confirmed the launch of Xiaomi Mi 6 earlier with the Mi fans in India via live stream. Lei, however, did not reveal the exact date of launch or shared any details about the new handset which lead speculation and rumors buzz heavily in the web corner.
The moderator didn’t reveal anything about the upcoming flagship, however, he did mention the Mi 6 to be a ‘powerful device’ suggesting it to be powered by Qualcomm’s next generation chipset Snapdragon 835.
Rumours have tipped the device to run on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS. Leak reports have also suggested that the bigger variant, Xiaomi Mi 6 will be unveiled alongside the Mi 6 smartphone. But as the launch date turned out to be spurious, we will have to wait until the Chinese conglomerate officially lifts up the curtain next week.
