Since recently, most of the focus in the smartphone world has been shifted to Apple and Samsung. The smartphone community is currently gossipping about the rumors and speculations related to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the iPhone 8. Today, we have an exciting news for Xiaomi fans, and it’s about the company’s next flagship- the Xiaomi Mi6.
A Chinese tipster going by the Weibo username KJuma has posted a new teaser image today on Chinese microblogging site Weibo. This image looks like an official release date poster for the Xiaomi Mi6. The photo has a huge number 6 in the center and also says in Chinese that Xiaomi will hold a new launch event in Spring 2017. The poster and the tipster suggest that the Xiaomi Mi6 release date could be February 14, Valentine’s Day!
It’s quite unusual for a smartphone company to launch a flagship device on Valentine’s Day, but it’s nothing impossible. The teaser image says something else in Chinese that directly translates to “want, all have” (Google Translate is still not perfect in Chinese-English translation). But we think that phrase suggests the Xiaomi Mi6 will come with great features and specs and would be a powerful phone.
The latest rumors suggest that the Xiaomi Mi6, being a high-end flagship, will get a Snapdragon 835 processor. There are high chances of the phone getting a dual-curved screen variant that will probably be called Xiaomi Mi6 Edge or something similar. Analysts are speculating that the Mi6 could actually be a series of phones with possible variants like Xiaomi Mi 6S, Mi 6E, and Mi 6P.
Of course, all of this might be just rumors and speculations, and we also can’t really say if the newly leaked Xiaomi Mi6 release date poster is genuine. But a February-April launch is surely possible as that’s the timeframe for major flagship smartphone launches. We’ll hopefully get more leaks soon that will help us make better guesses.
Until then, stay tuned and we’ll keep bringing the latest updates for you.
