New rumors are suggesting that Xiaomi Mi 6c will be officially showcased before Christmas. These rumors are nowhere near to official sources, we do not know anything about their reliability, so take the info with a pinch of salt. According to these voices, the company is working on Surge S2, its second proprietary processor. Surge S1, which is its first SoC, is a midrange processor that we saw on the Mi 5c. That is why we guess that the Surge S2 will be in its successor.
From what rumors suggested, Surge S2 may be a midrange processor or even a flagship one, but we guess the first hypothesis is the true one. Surge S2 is said to be equivalent to a Snapdragon 652 by Qualcomm, and it is expected to be realized with a production process of 16 nm.
In case you do not know, Snapdragon 652 is an octa core SoC composed of 4 Cortex A73 cores running at a frequency of 2.2 GHz, and 4 Cortex A53 with a frequency of 1.8 GHz. Xiaomi Mi 6c is rumored to have a display with an 18:9 aspect ratio that will have narrow bezels like Xiaomi Mi Mix 2. Unluckily, at this moment, we do not have other info about Xiaomi Mi 6c.
