By Lizzie Mefford, Posted: 03/20/17 06:13AM EDT

Xiaomi Mi 6 may not run on Snapdragon 835 processor due to availability issues. If rumors are true, it seems that the company opted to reconfigure one of the three variants of the new flagship, which could mean heading to a March launch with different chipset.

Xiaomi Mi 6 Launches With A Snapdragon 821

The Xiaomi Mi 6 news regarding the sudden switch to a Snapdragon 821 is not new, as other companies have also done the same - Sony with its Xperia XZs and LG's G6. There are speculations that the first in-house chipset of Xiaomi may not be ready yet, and that the rumored high-end chip is not yet official.

This could mean that the top of the line model may have a Snapdragon 835 in a few months following the launch of Helio X30 and Snapdragon 821, which is expected to be around May, alongside the release of XZ Premium, GSMArena reported.

Xiaomi Mi 6 Will Come In Three Variants

Xiaomi Mi 6 is rumored to come in three variants, with the primary flagship being run by a Snapdragon 821 processor. Incidentally, LG has also launched a device with the same chipset during the MWC 2017.

Three variants of Xiaomi Mi 6 are reportedly arriving, with a "lite" model being run by the MediaTek Helio X30, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, including a dual camera. On the other hand, the second variant will have the Snapdragon 821 with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, including a Quad HD 2K OLED display and dual rear cameras.

Xiaomi Mi 6's third variant, on the other hand, will sport a ceramic body, Quad HD 2K OLED display with Dual curved Edge and will be powered by Snapdragon 835, including a 6GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage and dual rear cameras, Phandroid reported.
