The upcoming Redmi Note 6 Pro will come with a 19:9 notched 6.26-inch Full HD+ display having a screen resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels.
First Xiaomi Smartphone With Four Cameras
Redmi Note 6 Pro is going to be the first Xiaomi smartphone to officially come with four cameras on board. At the back, it will host two cameras: 12-megapixel primary sensor and secondary 5-megapixel sensor. There will be another two on the front as well: 20-megapixel primary lens coupled with a 2-megapixel portrait sensor.
Same Snapdragon Chipset
The next-generation Redmi Note smartphone will come with the same chipset as the predecessor. Qualcomm is yet to announce a successor to its current Snapdragon 636. It was launched in October 2017 built on a 14nm process. The same chipset will power Note 6 Pro again, known for its power, performance, and efficiency.
Two Selfie Cameras
Redmi Note 6 Pro will come with a dual camera setup on the front. Xiaomi says that the two cameras will help to improve imaging capabilities. It will combine the same 20-megapixel Sony sensor from the predecessor backed by a second 2-megapixel sensor for portrait feature to enhance bokeh effects.
MIUI 10 Out Of Box
The smartphone will run on the latest MIUI 10 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Redmi Note 5 Pro also runs on MIUI 10. Some leaks suggest that the smartphone may run Android Pie with the new MIUI, but it’s highly unlikely. Don’t expect Android 9.0 Pie on any Xiaomi smartphone until early 2019.
Design, Camera & Battery To Remain Same
Both Redmi Note 5 Pro and Redmi Note 6 Pro will be highly similar in nature. Starting from the rear camera to the design language to OS to the 4,000mAh battery, everything will remain same on the new Redmi Note 6 Pro. Only the display has got bigger and there’s an additional camera sensor upfront.
Success Of Redmi Note Phones In India
Every Redmi Note phone in India has been extremely successful. From Redmi Note 3 to Redmi Note 4 to the current Redmi Note 5 Pro, every smartphone from each of the generation has been a bestseller in the Indian market. 5 million units of Redmi Note 5 Pro was sold within 4 months of its launch. So, the expectations are going to be high with Redmi Note 6 Pro as well.
Redmi Note 6 Pro Price In India
The smartphone has been launched in Thailand for a starting price of 6,990 Baht, which roughly translates to INR 15,550. We expect the smartphone to be priced even lower given the current competition available in the market.
Redmi Note 6 Pro Variants
The smartphone is globally available in three storage variants: 64GB internal storage with 4GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage with 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage with 4GB of RAM. In India, the company RN6 Pro may launch in two variants, both with 64GB storage and altered RAM capacity.
Redmi Note 6 Pro Competition In India
The smartphone will face direct heat from current mid-range budget smartphones like Realme 2 Pro and Honor 8X. Backed by improved features and specifications, there are better smartphones available in the same price category. If Redmi Note 6 Pro is not priced aggressively, it will have a hard time in the market this time around.
Redmi Note 6 Pro is scheduled to launch on November 22 in three color variations of Blue, Black and Rose Gold with a Red edition later.
