The Xiaomi Mi 6c has the code name ‘Jason,’ and will have powerful specs under-the-hood for a mid-range smartphone. The smartphone will carry a 5.1-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, but the pixel density isn’t revealed in the listing. The device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, which is an octa-core chip with all the eight cores clocked at 2.2GHz. The Snapdragon 660 replaced the Snapdragon 653 in the upper mid-range chipset category.

The Adreno 512 GPU will support the graphics on the phone along with whopping 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There will be a 12MP camera at the back of the phone, and a 5MP snapper adorns the front of the phone.

The listing also says that the device will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat based MIUI out-of-the-box. The listing did not reveal the battery capacity of the phone. If the above specifications are believed to be true, then the Xiaomi Mi 6c will be the best mid-range smartphone in coming days.

The major difference between the Xiaomi Mi 6 and the Mi 6c can be seen in the internal hardware. The Mi 6 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC which is a powerful chip than the Snapdragon 660, but the latter will deliver exception battery life compared to the former, thanks to the 14nm manufacturing process.

Furthermore, the device will be priced lesser than the Mi 6 and Xiaomi should release the Mi 6c is emerging markets such as the India. The company is releasing only the budget Redmi series in India as we missed out on the Mi 5c as well, which disappointed masses out there.
