As per the listing, the Mi 6 will run the underclocked version of the Snapdragon 835 at 1.9GHz, which means that the phone will deliver better battery life. A previous rumor suggested that one variant of the phone will use the underclocked version of the Snapdragon 835, whereas the high-end variant will come with high clock speed at 2.45GHz. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ house the same SoC and comes with clock speeds of 2.35GHz (four cores) and 1.9GHz (four cores).

Even though bearing a lower clock speed, the Mi 6, at 2006 and 6438 points, achieved insane scores in both single-core and multi-core tests respectively. The listing further reveals that the phone will come with 6GB of RAM and will boot Android 7.1.1 Nougat on top of MIUI 9.

Xiaomi has also released a teaser of the phone in China, which confirmed the existence of two variants with a dual camera on the bigger one. The standard Mi 6 may come with the same 5.15-inch Full HD display as its predecessor, the Xiaomi Mi 5, whereas the high-end variant might boast a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, which could be curved on either side.

In terms of camera, the high-end variant may feature two 12MP sensors at the rear, and the standard Mi 6 will come with a single 12MP sensor. Both the variants are expected to pack an 8MP UltraPixel front-facing camera.

Xiaomi will be sticking with the same 3000mAh battery capacity in the Mi 6, whereas the Mi 6 Plus is expected to be graced with a 4100mAh unit.

Xiaomi has already confirmed the phone to launch on April 19, along with another smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 which is tipped to feature a 6.44-inch screen and Snapdragon 626 chip.
