This news comes from a Chinese report which reveals a lot more than just the release date. This undisclosed source says that the Mi 6 smartphone will be in fact powered by Qualcomm s Snapdragon 835 chipset.

Xiaomi has been rumored to launch three variants of the Mi 6. This report adds on to this by saying that one of the variants will come with a ceramic body like the Mi Note 2.

The Mi 6 is also said to come with camera functionalities similar to that of Sony s recently launched Xperia XZ Premium smartphone. Sony Xperia XZ Premium sports a 19-megapixel rear camera which can shoot 960 fps slow motion videos of 720 pixels. Up front, the smartphone houses a 13-megapixel wide-angle selfie camera.
