Many have also speculated that, since Xiaomi is debuting at the CES 2017 this year, it just makes a lot of sense for the company to showcase its smartphone at the event. And if we want to connect the dots, and the February 6 launch rumor is in fact true, then there is a possibility that Xiaomi will showcase the Mi 6 at CES 2017, and will eventually go on sale by February.

The Mi 6 has been in news for a while now, with the last leak about it being the smartphone coming in three processor variants. The same leakster @KJuma who revealed this poster, had also revealed that the Mi 6 will be launched in three variants dubbed Xiaomi Mi 6S, Mi 6E, and Mi 6P, based on the type of processors they house.

Xiaomi Mi 6 Specifications

While the Mi 6 label will be consistent across the variants, the following alphabet will stand for the type of chipset powering the device. The Mi 6S will thus be the one powered by Qualcomm s Snapdragon SoC while the Mi 6E will stand for MediaTek s Helio SoC. But the E moniker could also mean an Exynos chipset. Lastly, the Mi 6P is speculated to stand for Xiaomi s own Pinecone SoC. So far, there have been only rumors about Xiaomi working on its own chipset similar to Huawei, which makes the Kirin SoC. However, with the purported release of the Mi 5 successor in the coming year, we might eventually see the debut of Xiaomi-made processor.

The Mi 6 is also expected to come with Quick Charge 4.0, which is claimed to be capable of offering up to five hours of usage or more with just five minutes of charging.

In terms of software, the Xiaomi Mi 6 is expected to run Android 7.0 Nougat or Android 7.1 Nougat update with MIUI 9 OS layered above. It is further speculated that the smartphone will boast up to 6GB of RAM. It may also feature support for USB Type-C.
