Xiaomi Mi6 and Mi6 Plus
The tops of the range (flagships) by the Chinese brand, which is constantly surprising for its lower prices and products of extremely satisfactory quality. After a smartphone-packed 2016, it's almost time to meet your new bets, the Mi6 and Mi6 Plus.
According to virtually all rumors that have been circulating in recent weeks, Xiaomi is expected to feature two versions of the same equipment, the Mi6 and the Mi6 Plus. Chinese Apple will make it even more so if it presents both devices on April 11.
Smartphones are expected to feature a variety of memory schemes that will obviously influence their retail prices. Even so, these prices should range from € 268 to € 402, which are appealingly low for what they will offer us.
The Xiaomi Mi6 should be featured with a 2.45GHz Snapdragon 835 processor, 5.15-inch Full-HD 1080p resolution and memory options for 4GB or 6GB RAM and 32GB / 64GB / 128GB memory internal.

For its part, the Xiaomi Mi6 Plus should feature the same processor as its brother, but with a 5.7-inch Full-HD display. We will also have about 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB to store all your files. Let's wait to see what Xiaomi brings us. Forward to Motorola and let's not forget the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in Red (RED edition).
Motorola presented at the Mobile World Congress the new Motorola Moto G5 Plus and the Motorola Moto G5, two mid-range smartphones that were greeted with mixed opinions regarding their design. This criterion is purely subjective but I confess that the new color for these Motorola can be much more catchy. Here's the Motorola Moto G5 in Blue!
For Motorola Moto Z, Motorola Moto Z Play, Motorola Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus we also have news about Android 7.1.2 Nougat. Motorola is said to update the Moto G4 and G4 Plus directly to Android 7.1.2, skipping 7.1.
The final version, prepared for the public, could reach several Motorola by the end of March. However, the most likely date will be April. By then we can list many of the news and features unique to Motorola smartphones.
For all four of these Motorola we will have several new features like “Live Wallpaper's”, Google Image Keyboard, the new camera app, new fingerprint reader gestures (biometric sensor) and many more unique features you can see here.
