Furthermore, the Mi 6 will run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat along with the company’s MIUI custom ROM. Both the Mi 6 and the 6 Plus are expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 835.
Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus, on the other hand, is expected to opt for a QHD OLED display probably with dual curved edges and a dual rear camera setup.
