Beats Samsung Galaxy S8

Xiaomi Mi6 is launching in the coming week and the most of the details about the new  Snapdragon 835 based phone have  been revealed. 

The 5.1-inch phone has  6 GB RAM, at least for some versions, dual rear camera as well as Android 7.1.1 wrapped under MIUI user interface. Xiaomi Mi 6 looks good too, especially with its two cameras.


The latest leak comes from the popular GeekBench 4.0 where the phone scores 2006 in single and 6438 in multi-threading. Galaxy S8 powered by Snapdragon 835 scores less than 2000 in single and just above 6000 in multi-threading but it is easy to assume that Samsung wants to make its Exynos 8895 version appeal faster.


Xiaomi Mi5 was the fastest phone based on the Snapdragon 820 in AuTutu, but again, have in mind that many Chinese manufacturers tend to optimise phones to win benchmarks. In AuTutu Xiaomi Mi6 scores around 170,000 and this happened on a 4GB RAM with 64GB storage full HD phone.

Recent leak at Weibo revealed that the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage will cost 2,199 Yuan ($318 / 300 Euro) while the 4GB RAM + 128GB storage will sell at 2,599 Yuan ($376 / 355 Euro). They will cost more than two times less than the Samsung Galaxy S8.

The larger version of the phone simply called and comes with a larger 5.7-inch screen. The Xiaomi Mi6 Plus with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage will start at 2,699 Yuan ($390 / 368 Euro), the 6GB RAM with 128GB storage will sell for 3,099 Yuan ($448 / 423 Euro). The storage champion featuring 6GB RAM and 256GB storage will sell for 3,699 Yuan ($535 / 505 Euro).

We will see on Wednesday April 19 if the pricing is correct as this is the date that company launches to the press.
