Rumors claim that Xiaomi Mi 6 will be launched on February 14, Valentine’s Day. This is after a poster was circulated around Weibo, a popular Chinese social media website.
The poster shows Xiaomi’s logo with a big number six at the center. It also shows the date (February 14) and the place where it will be launched.
Of course, there is a possibility that the poster is fake. Especially if the one who posted it, @kjuma, is known to circulate fake leaks. But there is also a chance that the poster is legit. We will just have to sit tight and wait for Xiaomi’s official statement.
