According to the report, the new Xiaomi smartphone is expected to arrive between January and February 2017. The publication added that the device will be launched in US, UK and Canada at the same time, which is a month earlier than the rumored Samsung Galaxy S8 release in March.

The new Xiaomi Mi6 is also expected to have full 4K video support as its processor is made to have that ability. Apart from its amazing display feature, the device will also be perfect for VR technology. As of the moment, all rumors and speculations about Xiaomi Mi6 must be taken with a grain of salt until the company decides to confirm them.
