|Xiaomi Mi 6 Pricing Leaked; Most Affordable Version Scores 170K on AnTuTu|
Ahead of its official announcement, Xiaomi's upcoming flagship Mi 6 smartphone visited popular benchmarking app AnTuTu. The phone is thought to be scheduled for a launch today, alongside its higher-end sibling Mi 6 Plus, but there appears to be some confusion as today would actually just be the day the company would announce when the phone is going to be official.
We've previously seen the Mi 6 gracing the GFXBench database with the codename Xiaomi Sagit. Last night, it also dropped by at AnTuTu using the same codename. The prototype, which uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset coupled with an Adreno 540 GPU, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, managed to score 170,000 points, which is certainly higher than the 131,000 score of the previous Mi 5s.
