We already know that Xiaomi is reportedly working on launching two new smartphones in the coming weeks. Called Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus, the smartphones are expected to feature a display with 18:9 aspect ratio. However, now, a new rumor suggests that the company is working on an edge-to-edge variant of the Mi 6 smartphone as well. The smartphone is said to be the successor of Mi 5C that was launched last year. The Xiaomi Mi 6C, as it is called, will be featuring the new Surge S2 chipset.

According to a new report on MyDrivers, the smartphone will feature a full-screen display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The report further suggests that just like the Mi 5C was powered by Surge S1, the Mi 6C is now said to be powered by the new Surge S2 SoC. Reports in the past have revealed that the mass production of Surge S2 was expected to begin in Q3. Other reports claim that the Mi 6C smartphone might be powered by a Snapdragon 652 SoC.

Apart from that, the report suggests that the smartphone might feature a 5.65-inch display with full HD+ display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The smartphone might be unveiled as either Xiaomi Mi 6X or Xiaomi 6C. In terms of design, since the Mi 6C is said to arrive with a full-screen design, it will likely feature a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Like the Mi 6 smartphone, the Mi 6C is also rumored to arrive with glass chassis. ALSO READ: Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus render reveals edge-to-edge display, dual rear camera setup
