Xiaomi has launched the successor to its highly successful Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. While the smartphone has already been launched in Indonesia, the India launch is expected to happen soon.
But first, the specifications of the phone: The full HD+ display of the smartphone is 6.26 inches in size and has an aspect ratio of 19:9. The screen resolution is 2280x1080pixels. Xiaomi has fitted the octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636SoC as the main processor and for graphics, it is the Adreno 509 GPU.
The RAM would be in two variants, 3GB and 4GB; the corresponding on-board storage will be 32GB and 64GB. There is a hybrid slot for a microSD card that can add storage of up to 128GB.
On the camera section, Xiaomi has gone in for a 4-camera feature 2 in the rear and 2 in the front. The rear camera has a combination of one 12MP sensor and a 5MP sensor. The camera in the front for selfies, it will be 20MP+2MP.
Xiaomi has brought in its latest UI, the MIUO version 10 to act as the skin over the stock Android Oreo, version 8.1 OS in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro. With all the sensors and communications features on board, the battery fitted on this phone is 4000mAh. You will have the fingerprint sensor as well as the face unlock features on this phone. Black, Blue, and Rose Gold are the three colour options available.
Now, for the keen buyers in India, there is no indication yet from Xiaomi on when this new Redmi Note 6 Pro will be released and what the price would be. Right now, it’s only in the realm of speculation.
Rumours suggest that, going by the practice Xiaomi followed with Note 5 and Note 5 Pro, the Redmi Note 6 Pro should come to India only in February 2019. But there are others who feel that with the Redmi Note 6 doing well in India, Xiaomi would want to cash in on the reputation and bring in the successor soon and not wait till next year.
On pricing too, there are different takes depending on how it is viewed. In all likelihood, Xiaomi may decide to sell the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro below the Rs 20, 000 mark, maybe in the Rs 16, 000 and Rs 18, 000 range for the 2 variants.
