Xiaomi has just recently launched the Mi6 smartphone in China and the smartphone has received some good response in the Chinese market. Xiaomi has not revealed its plans to launch the smartphone in other markets but the launch could be announced soon in countries like India. We also revealed that the company is working on a smaller edition of the Xiaomi Mi6 known as the youth edition of its recently launched flagship device, Mi6. The youth edition was expected to feature Snapdragon 660 processor. However, Xiaomi CEO declined the reports regarding the youth variant.
Now, the Xiaomi Mi6’s other variant is indeed coming along but not as the youth edition. The GFXBench which is a benchmarking site for the smartphones has had a listing of the Xiaomi smartphone with the name as Xiaomi Mi6C. The new device that goes by the moniker Xiaomi Mi6C or Jason, features the same Snapdragon 660 processor, which was expected to come on Youth variant.
Talking about the specifications on the Mi6C, the device is similar to the Mi6 but with Snapdragon 660 processor in place of premium, high-end Snapdragon 835 processor. The phone sports a 5.1-inch Full High Definition display and is powered by 6GB RAM and 64GB internal memory, similar to Mi6. To add to this, Mi6C comes with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box and runs on EMUI 8.0. Plus, there is a 12MP rear camera that is part of the device. However, the secondary camera on Mi6C doesn’t match the Mi6, but we think it’s being wrongly reported in the Mi6C listing as it can’t be that inferior. The listing reveals an inferior 3MP camera, we think the one inside Mi6, an 8MP camera, would find its place inside Mi6c too. This listings of the front camera is way smaller for any phone in 2017 so we expect it to be atleast 5MP or 8MP.
