Xiaomi has faced an online leak, in which it has been claimed that the company's flagship handset Mi 6 is going to be unveiled on April 16. The leak has also added that due to the unavailability of the latest Snapdragon 835 SoC, the premium variant based on it will be launched in May 2017. The above report is from Android Pure which states that the Xiaomi Mi 6 will be launched initially with a Snapdragon 821 SoC due to non-availability of Snapdragon 835 processors.
It must be noted that the Samsung has signed a deal with Qualcomm for first availability of the latest processors, and only after the launch of the Galaxy S8 others will be able to launch their smartphones with this latest Snapdragon processor.
