The price was leaked on Weibo by a user named BaymaxPhone, who shared a screenshot with the different pricing.

The Mi 6 Plus will come with 6GB RAM across SKUs, with the 64GB storage version priced at 2,599 Yuan ($390), the 128GB storage version at 3,099 Yuan ($448) and the 256GB storage version at 3,699 Yuan ($535).

According to the specs leaked earlier, the Mi 6 will have a 5.1-inch display with full HD resolution. Running Android 7.1.1 the phone is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor with Qualcomm Adreno 540. The phone will have a 12MP rear camera and a 7 MP front camera with the 4K video recording capability.

Xiaomi Mi 6 specifications were also leaked on GFXBench earlier, which indicated a Qualcomm Adreno 540 GPU. Some leaks have also claimed a 19MP rear camera on a high-end version of the Xiaomi Mi 6 smartphone.

Incidentally, the Xiaomi Mi 5 was not such a big hit even in one of its stronger markets like India. Mi 5 was launch in MWC Barcelona last year, and Xiaomi later launched a Mi 5S variant as well of the same phone.
