In chapter 673, we all saw Sasuke with a nine-tomoe Rinnegan(with was later corrected to be six tomoe) in his left eye and wondered how he obtained it. Well I will explain how he awakened it and obtained the tomoe with my theory.

The Six Paths Yin Power/Appearance:
When Hagoromo provided Sasuke with his chakra, Hagoromo still possessed Truth-Seeking Balls. This implies that Hagoromo still had a small amount of Ten-Tails' chakra. After Sasuke received his Yin Chakra, the Juubi Chakra and Hagoromo's chakra clashed and fought for superiority. In the end, the result of their clash was this:

As you can see, the two powers came to a compromise.
Hagoromo's inheritors: Purple color
Kaguya's inheritors: Tomoe, Manifests in one eye only.

Due to the number of tomoe and the fact that it is not a third eye, Sasuke's Rinnegan is Kaguya's Rinne Sharingan with Hagoromo's Rinnegan powers in an incomplete form.

Sasuke's Rinnegan powers/Techniques:
In chapter 674, Sasuke demonstrated the ability to utilize Amenotejikara, a space-time ninjutsu that allows him to teleport and shift spaces with any object in a certain range.

This is similar to Kaguya's Amenominka, a space-time technique that allows her to shift dimensions.
Amenotejikara is most likely Amenominka on a lower scale due to the tomoe difference.
Later, Sasuke discovered that he could use his Sharingan powers through his Rinnegan. Like how Kaguya's third eye bears the power of the Sharingan as well. Sasuke was able to cast augumented genjutsu that could control the Tailed Beasts:

Later, Sasuke demonstrated the ability to utilize the Six Paths Technique. He was also able to master the five elements and Yin-Yang Release as stated by the Fourth Databook as well as seal the Tailed Beasts' chakra into his Susano'o, like the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path. He was able to reach Hagoromo's level with that.

Hagoromo's inheritors: Six Paths Technique, ability to control Tailed Beasts and assimilate their chakra into his Susano'o, mastery of the five elements and Yin-Yang.
Kaguya's inheritors: Space-time ninjutsu, Retains Sharingan abilities and genjutsu

Other:
In addition, Sasuke has been provided with a Rinnegan with tomoe because that is required to end Infinite Tsukuyomi. If he had two or one Rinnegan without tomoe, he probably would not be able to undo Infinite Tsukuyomi. His six tomoe shows that he still requires the help of Naruto, who has the Tailed Beasts' chakra.

The Future of Sasuke's Rinnegan:
Based on what I have said above, he may either develop a second Rinnegan with/without tomoe or a nine tomoe Rinnegan in his left eye.

Years subsequent to the Fourth Great Ninja World War, he is able to utilize Amenotejikara to teleport longer distances and shift across Kaguya's dimensions as well.

In addition, his single Rinnegan with tomoe is on par, and quite possibly stronger than, with the dual variant of the tomoe-less Rinnegan.

Never forget that Sasuke was also injected with Hashirama cells to bring him back to life. He also received chakra to from the First. Similar to Madara, after being near death with a mix of Indra/Ashura chakra he woke with a Rinnegan. Except Sasuke had a way more potent mix. But I wonder where Kishi was going with just the obe eye.

I suppose so, but Asura had transmigrated to Naruto, therefore Hashirama did not possess Asura's chakra when his cells were utilized to resuscitate Sasuke.

What makes you think that Sasuke's left eye is stronger than double tomoeless rinnegans?
There is nothing that suggests that in the manga.
Certainly not, but it is quite conspicuous.

The dual variant of the tomoe-less Rinnegan appears to solely be able to utilize the Six Paths Technique as well as other techniques seemingly unique to the individual.

Sasuke's Rinnegan allows him to utilize Amenotejikara and open Space-Time Portals, which are very similar to Kaguya's Amenominaka and Yomotsu Hirasaka. It also allows him to utilize the power of the Sharingan as well as the Six Paths Technique.

Amenotejikara is surely strong, it is a technique that surpasses every sharingan special technique, and that is similar to those powers.
But the fact is that we didn't see masters of the tomoeless rinnegans, trained for 40 years with its use, use the powers of the tomoeless rinnegan to the max, if creation of all things exists, it may probably surpass Amenotejikara.

Madara, Nagato and Obito never really tried hard to discover the capacities of their rinnegans, while Madara and Obito did what they where told to do with this eye, Nagato isn't a Uchiha, he may not be able to master its full potential, he focused on the 6 pain thing that was almost enough for his goal to collect the beasts.
Sasuke in Gaiden has trained his eye way more than Madara dying in his cave, Sasuke may have come closer to the full potential of his eye than Madara ever was.

Yes true but regardless of the transmigration, Hashi is still of Ashuras bloodline. He always contains Ashuras DNA regardless of who Ashura is ghosting at the moment.
Madara stole Hashis flesh in VOTE and was able to awaken the rinnegan. I don't think the sage implied that one had to physically have the transmigrated chakra. If that's the rule then Sasuke never got chakra/cells from Naruto so it wouldn't make sense. The only chakra he got from the other side was when Kabuto injected him.

I think the transmigration is separate from the actual event of awakening the rinnegan. At least when it comes to Ashuras side.

There is but one, single way to unlock the Rinnegan. By gaining Hagoromo's personal chakra, you can only obtain this chakra in two ways though. The first being what Madara once did, by mixing the chakra of Indra and Ashura together. At the time, Hashirama was still Ashura's host and Madara was Indra's. When he mixed his DNA with Hashirama's, he also mixed Indra and Ashura's chakra, resulting in the Rinnegan years later.

Then we have the second way of unlocking it, that Sasuke did. By meeting Hagoromo himself and gaining his chakra directly from him.

Sasuke only got yang chakra from rikudo. Indra was already yang. Nobody knows what ultimately gave sasuke a rinnegan but all of these combined to happen in the span of like 2-3 chapters. I can only think that all of this matters. Maybe thats why his rinnegan is similar to kaguyas.

Also remember madaras whole point of fighting Hashi in the 4th war was to take another chunk of him to make himself stronger.

You are wrong yet again. Sasuke received Hagoromo's Yin chakra, while still having Indra's dominant Yin chakra. Yin chakra affects the mind, while Yang affects the body. We know that the Sharingan is a physical manifestation of a change in the chakra contained within the user's brain. In other words, the Sharingan is a physical manifestation of the user's Yin Chakra. We know that the Rinnegan is the next evolution of the Sharingan and we know how to evolve it.

The evolution of the Sharingan into the Rinnegan can only occur when someone gains Hagoromo's chakra and we know of only two ways to gain his chakra. The first is what Madara did, mixing the chakra of Hagoromo's sons into one vessel and as a result, Hagoromo's chakra is made. The other is what Sasuke did, which is to gain the chakra directly from Hagoromo himself. This is how Sasuke gained the Rinnegan and its also why he only has one. From this point onward however, it will be largely speculations and not direct facts.

The Rinne-Sharingan which Kaguya and Madara had were located on their foreheads, and there is no doubt that this eye is inspired by the legend of the "Third Eye" which can see "all" and has a direct connection to ones spirit. Yin chakra is spiritual chakra, and because of that, the Rinne-Sharingan is probably awoken by the phenomenon that occurs with a full moon and by having a huge amount of Yin chakra. Though it would also require the Yang (physical) energy/chakra to sustain it as well. Sasuke lacks this Yang and as of such he didn't awaken the Rinne-Sharingan.

However, he didn't have the Yang to "balance" out the Yin either, this resulted in him only awakening a single Rinnegan. However, his single Rinnegan possesses the same power as both of Hagoromo's, but less than Kaguya's Rinne-Sharingan. Think of it like this, Hagoromo/Madara's Rinnegan contain 100% power, 50% in each eye. Sasuke's Rinnegan contains 100% power, 50% power in each eye had they been separated. His eye is just the result of having low Yang chakra compared to his immense Yin chakra.
