Xiaomi is preparing for its new flagship smartphone release this year, Mi 6. There are lots of rumors running around about Mi 6 features and the craziest one is that Mi 6 may feature a 3D Touch technology in its display. There are more rumors about Mi 6 but we know one thing for sure that Mi 6 is also going to be the most affordable smartphone according to the specifications. Let’s discuss rumors and see if these could make Mi 6 a better smartphone than its predecessor.

Xiaomi Mi 6 vs Mi 5: Display

Xiaomi Mi 6 may be coming with a bezel-less smartphone on the edges and a smaller screen to body ratio. The screen size is same as Mi 5 but the resolution can be Quad-HD and 570 PPI pixel density, also protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 4. There is a rumor going around about 3D touch display is Mi 6 with MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Xiaomi Mi 6 vs Mi 5: Hardware

To make Mi 6 a flagship smartphone, Xiaomi may again introduce a new SoC from Qualcomm; Snapdragon 835. And the graphics processor may be Adreno 540, which is an upgraded version of the previous GPU with Snapdragon 820. The number with the word RAM is a new benchmark in smartphones today so Xioami should also add something to the previous RAM number and upgraded it to 4 and 6 GB. There might be two variant of Mi 6 with 64 GB and 128 GB memory and ti won’t be expandable this time too.

Xiaomi Mi 6 vs Mi 5: Camera

As most of the brands already adapted dual camera setup on their smartphones so Xiaomi could also be planning to add a dual 12 MP camera setup on Mi 6 with dual LED dual tone flash. And this time the aperture size could be smaller than before; f/1.8. The Mi 5 was capable of shooting 4K videos at 30 frames per second and Mi 6 could also be able to do that. There is no upgrade in front-facing camera for Mi 6 as per rumors but Xiaomi should upgrade it further in Mi 6.

Xiaomi Mi 6 vs Mi 5: Battery and Features

There are no rumors about the battery in Mi 6 and there might be no change in the battery because the display is same and the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor is battery saver, so a 3000 – 3200 mAh battery could be better for Mi 6. And quick charging is the part of new Snapdragon 835 SoC so this could also be the feature in Mi 6.

A front mounted fingerprint sensor will be there in Mi 6 just like we saw on Mi 5 last year and USB Type-C can also be the part in Mi6 just like in Mi5. There could be a possibility that you will see the Mi 6 in a metal body and new colors.


Xiaomi Mi 6 will definitely give a tough competition to brands like Samsung and other most successful Chinese brand; OnePlus. We are eagerly waiting for this flagship just like iPhone 8, tell us what you think about these rumors and what you want to see in the next Xiaomi’s flagship?
