Xiaomi has recently introduced a new smartphone called as the Xiaomi Mi 5C which features company’s in-house Pinecone Surge S1 processor. The company also unveiled the Redmi 4X in China alongside. Now, Xiaomi is grabbing headlines for another smartphone. The Xiaomi Mi 6 is the eagerly-awaited upcoming mobile from the company which has been surrounded by rumours and leaks for some time.

However, Xiaomi Mi 6 is expected to be the first smartphone from China to boast a Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC. Moreover, the report claimed that this time Xiaomi will not offer an under-clocked Snapdragon 835 chipset.
