This CES 2017, we get to know that Xiaomi Mi 6 and Samsung Galaxy S8 would be the first two smartphones to feature a 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC.

If you’re considering buying the phone when it is released, then you should see how much the phone will cost. The price varies based on the currency, but it is good to look into. First, of course, for those of you that are unaware of the new phone, I’ll explain why it is to look out for, from the company and its ideas to the Xiaomi Mi 6’s design.
However, will Xiaomi Mi 6 price be same as the price of Mi 5 at the time of the release? Let’s find out!
Xiaomi The Company
Xiaomi is a privately owned company that was founded in China in 2010. It is fairly new but has become the fourth biggest smartphone maker; earning 20 Billion USD in revenue in 2015.
They have been the first company to use a few unique and smart features, such as the underglass fingerprint scanner or the side wrapping screen. These features have started trends with the other big mobile phone companies; making Xiaomi a founder of some interesting ideas.
Xiaomi Mi 6
The Xiaomi Mi 6 has made a lot of people excited. It is surely going to be better than its predecessor, the Xiaomi Mi 5, which still did fairly well on its release. It is one of the first two phones to use a 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. The only other phone that is coming out with the same hardware is the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Features to Look Out For
Aside from the design and improved hardware, there are also other benefits to getting the phone. Firstly, it will have a 4000mAh battery, ensuring it will last long when charged. It will also feature the dual-curved display variant, available for purchase, that people loved with the Mi 5. It will also have a home button that can scan your fingerprint.
The feature that has caught the most attention, however, is the dual rear camera it will have. There is not much out about this yet, but it has been confirmed! The multiple cameras could definitely make an interesting phone.
Leaked Price Xiaomi 6
The price has been revealed in the new leaks, and it will be about CNY 1,999. In USD that is about $290 dollars, so it’s a fairly good price for such a high quality phone. The price could change, but that is the price set for its release this year.
If you want to get the curved screen version, then the price will obviously be higher. It is set for CNY 2,499, or $362 in USD. This price is significantly higher, but it may be worth it if you long for a curved screen phone that has the 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC.
It looks like Xiaomi remains on their motive which is to provide smartphones with the right price which the audience deserves. Moreover, Xiaomi Mi 6 has raised to $9 only when compared to the starting price of Xiaomi Mi 5 which was around $352 (2300 yuan) at the time of its release.
Aside Snapdragon 835 SoC as the heart of flagship, Mi 6 will also feature 4 / 6 gigs of RAM, Dual cameras a single one to be at least 20 MP. It looks like the configuration is quite dreamy for that much price. It will officially launch sometime around the release date of Samsung Galaxy S8 which is April 18.
Does knowing the price change your mind about buying it? Well, hopefully more about the phone will be leaked soon to help you decide. It is definitely a phone to look for and will change the features and hardware of feature mobile phones.
