The Xiaomi Mi 6C has resurfaced, this time with renders and more details. A mid-range version of the Mi 6 flagship, this one aims for a price of CNY 2,000, down from CNY 2,500 for the high-end model. That’s for the 4GB/64GB model, the 6GB/128GB is CNY 2,500.
It features an aluminum body with slimmed down bezels – side bezels are 2.5mm wide, top bezels could be as small as 10mm. However, the body is 0.2mm thicker than the Mi 6. The front is covered by 2.5D glass and there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack.
The camera only appears to be alone – apparently, the black window next to the LED flash is actually the 5MP secondary cam. The main camera uses a Sony IMX386 sensor with optical image stabilization.
Also, instead of a Snapdragon 660, the chipset is allegedly Xiaomi’s own Surge S2: 4x Cortex-A73 (2.2GHz) + Cortex-A53 (1.8GHz), Mali-G71MP12 (830MHz). Alternatively, a Surge X1 chipset could be used with slightly lower clock speeds. The RAM will be LPDDR4, the storage is EMMC 2.1.
The Xiaomi Mi 6C should go on sale in mid-2017 (and the year is already headed of its latter third).
The only Surge brand I know and like is the soda company.
Huawei's HiSilicon, Samsung's Exynos, & NVidia also didn't release their kernel source, because it is meant for internal developers, not public. And, NO ONE COMPLAIN about that... BUT, in MediaTek & Xiaomi case, ALL complain & s...
This phone has my money all up to the Surge S2. Xiaomi is trying to hard to avoid the SD660. The grandfather of SD660 aka SD650 has made Xiaomi Redmi 3 and Xiaomi a big HIT!
