Galaxy S8, Mi 6 to Pack Snapdragon 835; Two Most-Anticipated Devices to Debut at CES 2017?
Samsung and Xiaomi might have a fierce competition in 2017 as both will launch their premium flagships, Galaxy S8 and Mi 6.
Samsung Galaxy S8 rumors and updates
Galaxy S8 has been one of the highly-anticipated device as it is expected to right the wrongs in Galaxy Note 7. Rumors have swirled around the web for months, starting from the 'recycled' technology in Note 7 to the fastest processor Snapdragon 835. The latter has become the talk recently as it is reportedly Samsung's very-own 10-nanometer powerhouse. It will enhance user experience in multi-tasking with the speedy performance, Android Authority has learned.
Other than the processor, Samsung is rumored to equip Galaxy S8 with a whopping 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. There will be many gains including 30 MP rear-shooter and 4,200 mAh battery capacity. Being the one to tout the latest Snapdragon Soc and everything in big digits, Samsung Galaxy S8 could be the fastest (and probably smartest) smartphone in 2017.
Xiaomi Mi 6 rumors and updates
For awhile, the tech community thought that Galaxy S8 will be the one and only device rocking Snapdragon 835.
Mi 6 is expected to join the competition with the other high-end phones in line. Unlike Samsung, the Apple of China does not have any issue with its stream of affordable devices. According to HIS analyst, Kevin Wang, Xiaomi Mi 6 will sport Snapdragon 835 like Galaxy S8, as reported by Ubergizmo.
Xiaomi Mi 6 and Samsung Galaxy S8 release date
There is not much to unveil about Mi 6 yet but more updates should flood the internet soon as the reports suggest January release date as announced in CES 2017 official site. Both, Samsung and Xiaomi are expected to introduce their exciting new products at the biggest consumer electronics event next year.
