Xiaomi has always been known for its bang for the buck, and while its flagship the Mi 6 is still more affordable than most flagships, there are many of those who prefer to take a look at their even less expensive mid-range offerings, which offer a lot of value for the dollar. That's what the Mi 6c is, a mid-range version of the Mi 6, and we've got some good information on the phone, in the form of leaked renders and specifications.
The render in question shows the Mi 6c from the front and its rear at an isometric angle. From the front, we can see a 2.5D glass design which tapers out at the edges. The screen-to-body ratio is delightfully large, and insider information hints that it is even better than the Mi 6's. The side bezels are reportedly just 2.5mm, with nary a thing to see on the sides, while the top and bottom bezels are just 10mm. The home button is kept at the bottom part, and a look at the bottom of the device shows a USB Type-C port and some speaker holes, but no 3.5mm jack.
The phone specifications include Xiaomi's in-house Surge S2 chipset, which is a Quad-core processor with two Cortex-A73 cores at 2.2Ghz and another pair of Cortex-A53 cores at 1.8Ghz. It's built on a 16nm process and is paired with a Mali-G71MP12 GPU at 830Mhz. It'll come in two variants: one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, and another at 6GB/128GB.
The phone comes with two cameras at the back, a Sony IMX386 sensor with optical image stabilization and a smaller 5-megapixel camera for doing things like the bokeh effect.
The render looks like it only has a single camera on the rear, but the smaller 5-megapixel camera is apparently the small black dot next to the flash. The Xiaomi Mi 6c is expected to come out sometime later this year, although the exact date and information are currently unknown. We'll know it's near once the phone shows up on TENAA.
