Xiaomi Announces a Cheaper 4GB Variant of the Mi 6

Xiaomi has announced a new variant of its Mi 6 flagship smartphone, this time for people who don’t need the extra 2 GB of RAM available in the previously announced model.

The new version of the phone comes with a 4 GB LPDDR4 RAM module, instead of 6 GB one. It also comes with 64 GB of storage, the lowest of the two storage options (the other being 128 GB) available for the Mi 6 at its launch.

The reduction in memory also brings a slightly lower price tag, as the phone is now available for 2299 Yuan, or $345, rather than 2249 Yuan of the 6GB model. That is a difference of around $30, which is just about right for a cheaply-priced flagship phone.

The rest of the specs are pretty much shared between the two variants. The display remains the same at 5.15” with IPS LCD 1080p panel, which is enough for most situations, apart from VR perhaps.

Under the hood is a Snapdragon 835 processor with its eight cores. There’s a fingerprint scanner on the back, below the dual 12 MP camera setup (wide-angle plus telephoto). At the front you get an 8 MP camera.

The battery capacity is remains the same at 3,350 mAh which  supports Quick Charge 3.0.

    • Har jagah tumhara koodna zaroori hota hai?
      Pata bhi hai k mobile main price barhti ks waja se hai?

    • @AbdulWAHABAlam:disqus , I dont know how can someone judge the quality of front camera just by knowing its paper specs and megapixels?

      iPhone 8’s single 7 MegaPixel Camera and And Samsung’s Single 8 MP camera is better then most phones with 16MP front cam.

      Almost all phones use screen between 5 and 5.5 inches, and that is considered a standard, i dont see anything that make me think its screen is short. Not only this, most of the people (that i know) tend to hate phones bigger then 5.5 inches.

      And, Last but not the least, It has a DAMN SNAPDRAGON 835, a high end processor, I dont know a single phone that costs around $350 and has a SD835. (Please do tell me if you find a phone with high end processor (I repeat “HIGH END PROCESSOR” under $350)

      Sure there are phones with 4 GB ram, 13/16 mp crappy front camera (yes!! Crappy) and iffy back camera and a not-so-bright 6+ inch display with mid-range / low end cpu and gpu, but guess what, even they are approximately priced near $300. If you compare them with this phone, you’ll know, At $350 This phone is a Steal.

      PS) I know its your personal opinion (that is posted in public) and I respect it, And this reply is my view of your public opinion!! Nothing personal here!

  • Smaller screen is good. Please make a 4.5 inch phone so that it is actually portable. They have started doing that tho
