Xiaomi has spent up to 7 years designing a smartphone that will provide the best performance in everything possible. This is why the Xiaomi Mi 6 is considered the best of the Mi models. A larger variation of the handset is the Mi Note 3, although it has slightly different features. We’ll also mention the Mi MIX 2
As you are well aware, the amount of memory within the phone can change how much you want to get the phone. Both the Mi 6 and the Mi Note 3 models have 6GB of RAM. This is more than enough data for daily use.
There is also the Mi MIX 2, which comes with 8GB of RAM. This, however, isn’t as popular as many would rather get a cheaper phone with many of the same features than spend more money on memory when they don’t need their phone to have that much space. For those who do want this much space, this phone is more appealing.
Lower Price Tag
As you can tell, memory affects the pricing significantly. Due to this, Xiaomi decided to release a version of the Mi 6 with lower amounts of memory for a lower price.
Xiaomi Mi 6 with Lower Memory and Features
For an overview of this device, it will include:
- 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM
- Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chip
- 5.15-inch full HD screen
- 8MP front shooter
- 4G LTE support
- Uses USB Type-C
- 3350mAh battery
- MIUI8 based on the Android 7.1.1 platform
It also includes a dual-camera with:
- 12MP sensors
- 2x optical zoom
- 4-axis OIS
There are a few other camera features, but these are the basics and most important for this article.
The original Mi 6 comes in many different memory variants. So here is a price and memory comparison of the different Mi 6 options:
- The 6GB + 64GB memory version priced at 2499 Yuan or US$363
- The 6GB + 128GB memory version priced at 2899 Yuan or US$421
- And the special 6GB + 128GB ceramic edition, that’s only available in black, priced at 2999 Yuan or US$435
Due to the different prices and memory differences, we can only assume that the 4GB and 64ROM Mi 6 will be priced about 200 Yuan less, at 2299 Yuan or US$349. We’ll see in time if this the accurate price.
When you take into account that the rest of the features of the phone will be exactly the same, this is a great offer for those who don’t care about the memory or don’t require that much memory for their daily use while still getting to use a high-end name brand.
If you do want better memory but are enticed by the lower price, just make sure to back up your photos on a regular basis and watch how many apps you have installed at a single time. If you have a lot of apps installed you don’t often use, you should uninstall those to free up even a little more space.
