The 6D MKII also needs a 24Mp APS-C sensor, 10 fps and better AF.

The 6D is a full frame line, perhaps you're thinking of a 7D mark II. The 6D is entry level, what you're asking for (in full frame) is basically a 1DX. Not quite an $1800 camera. As far as the articulating screen goes, I'd be all for it as long as they could maintain weather seals and they could make them not take up so much room.

On the other hand, maybe some enterprising company will come up with a tripod or hotshoe mounted bracket for your smartphone. Maybe they already have. Then you could snap it on when you wanted, and leave it off when it would be in the way.

It has wi-fi. And with a smartphone or tablet and DSLR Remote or similar software you can use your smartphone as a remote with live view and touch screen shutter release. No cables needed. No weather seal to break. Complete 1000% articulation. Detachable. Remotable. It's a zillion times better than an attached articulated screen. Sent the live view to your Google Glass heads-up view for an even better solution if you are a Google Glass beta tester and can get one of those.
