The Xiaomi Mi 6 will follow up the outrageously successful Xiaomi Mi 5 and to continue with the success achieved, Xiaomi might be splitting the Mi 6 into three variants, differed by two different processors powering them.

According to a post made on Chine social network site Weibo, the Mi 6 is tipped to launch in three versions with three different prices. One variant might be powered by the MediaTek Helio X30 priced at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs 19,800) while another variant will sport the upcoming Snapdragon 835 processor costing CNY 24999 (roughly Rs 24,700). The third variant will also have the same 10nm flagship processor from Qualcomm but will sport a dual-edged curved display like the Mi Note 2 and will be up for grabs for CNY 2999 (roughly Rs 29650).

Previously, a leak from GizmoChina showed never-seen-before benchmark scores by the Mi 6, shattering all previous records. The Mi 6 scored a record-breaking AnTuTu benchmark score of 210,329 trumping over the previously held record of 163,578 by the OnePlus 3T by a long margin.

This was most likely the result of the Snapdragon 835 powering the phone, which happens to be the first SoC by Qualcomm to be made on a 10nm assembly process that gives it a significant performance and efficiency boost.

Rumours state that the phones might come with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM and sport a 16-megapixel dual-camera setup and powered by a 3,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 4.0 support.

If the report turns out to be true, Xiaomi might be looking to cater to a variety of audience who are in the market for different requirements. Some may find raw performance attractive while some might prefer a cutting-edge display on top for a little more money. Since Mi 6 is the global flagship of the company, launching it in three variants might just work wonders for Xiaomi yet again.
