Additionally, the smartphone is said to be powered by a Snapdragon 625 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM.

For India, Xiaomi is running far behind with no announcements for the Mi6 and the launch of the Mi Max 2 set for 18th July, the company may launch their sub brand by the end of the year, if not early 2018.
