Two Snapdragon 835, one Helio X30

Xiaomi Mi 6 is one of the most anticipated phones to come from China and recent information indicates that there might be three versions of the phone, two with Snapdragon 835 and one with MediaTek Helio X30. 

Xiaomi is well known for launching two phones and using the same name, despite the fact that they pack different SoCs inside. The company is no stranger to mixing Qualcomm and MediaTek SoCs.

Gizchina believes that there are three Xiaomi Mi 6 phones but that they might end up with a slight differentiation in the naming scheme. The working title for the highest end one is the Xiaomi Mi 6 Premier, followed by the Xiaomi Mi 6 Standard and the Xiaomi Mi 6 Youth.

It looks like the Premier and Standard will get an OLED Display with Quad HD resolution and the Premier is expected to pack a curved screen too. The highest end one, let’s call it premier, should launch with a ceramic body, Snapdragon 835, Adreno 540 GPU, 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM as well as 256 GB memory. We expect that there will be two versions of the phone - one with 4GB of RAM and 128GB both with curved screen, but this is not something the source is ready to confirm. The phone is expected to have dual rear cameras.

The runner up Xiaomi Mi6 Standard also comes with an OLED Display with Quad HD resolution, Snapdragon 835, Adreno 540 GPU, 4GB of RAM as well as 128 GB memory. It also comes with a dual rear camera.

The last one got our attention as Xiaomi Mi 6 Youth is expected to have a MediaTek Helio X30 deca-core, PowerVR 7XT Plus GPU, 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB of internal memory. The phone packs a dual rear camera too, and should probably be a bit more affordable.

The Xiaomi Mi 6 Youth with Helio X30 is expected to launch at 1999 Yuan (273.6 Euro / 291 USD) in China, Xiaomi Mi 6 Standard 2499 Yuan (342 Euro / 363.85 USD) while the flagship Xiaomi Mi6 Premium is expected to cost 2999 Yuan (410.5 Euro / 436.64 USD). Xiaomi  sold a lot of Xiaomi Mi5 and Xiaomi Mi5 Plus phones and managed to replace them with the quite sucessful Xiaomi Mi5S, Mi5S Plus and Xiaomi Note 2, that specification wise resembles the Premium, Standard and Youth line up.
