A week after unveiling Xiaomi Mi 5X in China, Xiaomi is back in the news. This time, reports suggest Xiaomi could be on the verge to announce yet another Mi-series handset, allegedly Mi 6c. The successor to Mi 5c have surfaced numerously in the past and renders and key specifications have now shown up online, suggesting imminent launch. Xiaomi is yet to comment on the development officially, though.
The leaked render suggests Mi 6c resembles Mi 6 to a great extent, including chamfered edges on the rear. The phone apparently lacks a dual camera module. However, a few reports suggest the black window adjacent to LED flash on the back could be a secondary sensor. None of these reports appears trustworthy at this point, though.
Xiaomi Mi 6c reportedly flaunts multiple RAM and storage combinations: 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage and 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage. The base model is tipped to cost 2,000 yuan, which translates roughly at Rs 18,940. Another 6GB RAM model could be priced at 2,500 yuan (approximately Rs 23,670).
We have come across a new report revealing changes in terms of the design. Xiaomi Mi 6c could sport a screen, featuring 2.5D curved panel layered on top. A 3.5mm headphone jack is likely to vanish much like Mi 6. Camera department suggests support for optical image stabilisation (OIS) and Sony IMX386 sensor.
According to rumoured specifications, powering Xiaomi Mi 6c could be Qualcomm’s newly announced Snapdragon 660 14m octa-core SoC, 4K video recording, and support for Vulkan API for better 3D and graphics experience.
Xiaomi Mi 5c, which announced earlier this year, sports a 5.1-inch 1080p screen. It is powered by the company’s Surge S1 SoC, 3GB of RAM and Mali-T860 GPU for graphics. The dual-SIM phone runs Android 7.1 Nougat-based MIUI 8 software. It houses a 12-megapixel rear shooter and an 8-megapixel selfie shooter. The device packs a non-removable 2,860mAh battery.
