The existing Mi 6 will finally be joined by its bigger brother if these short teasers are of any indication. The 5.7-inch Mi 6 Plus is expected to have up to 6 GB of RAM and a large 4000 mAh internal battery.

We were expecting Xiaomi to announce both the Mi 6 and Mi 6 Plus flagships simultaneously, but only the 5.15-inch Mi 6 was made available earlier this year with no signs of its larger sibling. Two new official teasers, however, are hinting at a 5.7-inch model that could potentially be the Mi 6 Plus we've been waiting for.

The teasers are light on concrete information as usual, but we can expect an official announcement tomorrow. The video points towards a Snapdragon 800 series (possibly 835) SoC with 6 GB of RAM, glass touchscreen, UFS internal storage, 4000 mAh battery, and a 22 MP rear camera capable of 4K recording. NFC, USB Type-C, and 4G LTE round up the list of features, though we wouldn't be shocked if Xiaomi are to have more surprises up their sleeve during the actual announcement. The Mi 6 Plus is shaping up to be a respectable high-end smartphone if the above specifications are proven true.

Xiaomi's reveal tomorrow will be taking place on the same day as the Huawei Summer Showcase in San Francisco where Huawei will be unveiling its lineup of MateBooks and Honor devices for the North American audience. The timing could be mere coincidence, but it could also be seen as a small jab in an attempt to take some spotlight away from one of the world's largest smartphone manufacturers.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
