Fresh rumours have started circulating that the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has been working on another frameless flagship device. Codenamed ‘Chiron’, what grabs our attention most about the smartphone is that it is expected to receive a 6-inch JDI display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9. There are no name suggestions yet for the device but Xiaomi also seems to be working on two new smartphones – the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 and the Mi Note 3. It is quite possible that the ‘Chiron’ device might be released as the Mi Note 3.

It is still too early to confirm the specs of the device but from the images of the alleged Chiron smartphone that surfaced online, we can see that its design took inspiration from that of the Samsung Galaxy S8. We already know about the 6-inch display and it is also expected to come with 2.5D curved glass on top. From the images, we can take in the fact that the phone in the picture does not seem to have bezels at the bottom at all, just like the Galaxy S8. In addition to this, the top bezel is also much thinner than all the previous Xiaomi phones, with the front camera placed at the top-right corner.

When it comes to the hardware department, the Xiaomi Chiron will most likely house a Snapdragon 835 chipset paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There could be another storage variant of the device with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. Leaks suggest that the rear camera could be a 12MP dual-lens setup with an 8MP front camera.

Xiaomi has kept mum regarding these rumours about the Xiaomi Chiron smartphone but the device is expected to be launched sometime later this month. There have also been speculations that hidden under the ‘Chiron’ name is the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2, however, it is also rumoured that Xiaomi refuses to further develop this line.
