Banners and New Characters
Kazuha, the 5-star Anemo character, will arrive with the 1.6 update. The character wields a sword and lives with Beidou’s Crux Fleet. Kazuha’s stats, abilities, and even idle animations were leaked in the 1.6 beta. The leaks suggest that Kazuha and Beidou will be involved in Inazuma quests.
In addition to this, Yoimiya, a 5-star Pyro bow-user, is also rumored to arrive with the 1.6 update. However, since Kazuha will be arriving in the next update, Yoimiya will probably debut in the later version. Another five-star character, Ayaka, is also expected to appear in that game after existing in beta for months.
Apart from Yoimiya, a Klee re-run banner is more likely to appear in 1.6. It is highly possible because Genshin 1.4 and 1.5 each featured reruns of the existing five-star characters before introducing the new additions. Hence, it is expected from miHoYo to bring Kleein in Genshin Impact 1.6 update.

The Genshin Impact 1.6 leaks have claimed to bring new additions to the game. It includes an event called “Ludi Harpastum,” along with modifications and improvements to the housing system for the players.

Along with all these, there will also be a new series of islands for the players to explore.
The leaks also claim a dynamic challenge zone to appear in the 1.6 update. The changes will be depending on its current environment. It is most likely to be located on an island similar to Dragonspine.
