If latest reports are to be believed, the Xiaomi Mi 6 will have a much wider audience than the Xiaomi Mi 5. A Weibo leak has confirmed that the device will come in three variants and three different prices. The Mi 6 could be released at MWC in Barcelona next month.

As per the leak reported by GSMArena, one variant with a Helio X30 processor will be priced at ¥1,999 (AU$390 approx), the second one will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and will be priced at ¥2,499 (AU$480 approx) and the third variant with the same Qualcomm processor but with dual-edge curved display will cost ¥2,999 (AU$580). Previous reports had suggested though that the curved display is for a Xiaomi Mi 6 Pro.

The Xiaomi Mi 6 may be launched with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage while the Mi 6 Pro could be launched with 256GB internal storage and 6GB RAM. Both the Mi 6 and Mi 6 Pro smartphones could also come with a dual rear camera setup though details haven’t leaked yet.

The device is expected to run on Android 7.0 or 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box with MIUI 9 skin running on top and run on a mega 4,000 mAh battery with Quick Charge 4.0 support. It may also sport a Home Button with a built-in fingerprint reader. The Mi 6 is expected to be made available in Black, White, and Blue colour options.

Xiaomi’s co-founder and VP, Li Wanqiang, recently revealed during the Geek Park innovation conference that the smartphone maker is planning to surprise everybody in March. Even though he didn’t specifically mention Xiaomi Mi 6, he did hint at an upcoming product that would be priced at ¥1,999 (AU$390 approx), which could be the Mi 6 base model being referred to.
