Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro: Everything we know so far
Xiaomi is working to launch Redmi Note 6 Pro, the successor to its best-selling Redmi Note 5 Pro which was launched in February this year. In the latest update, reputed tipster Ronald Quandt told that Redmi Note 6 Pro is "upcoming" and gave away the specs, color variants, and price of the phone. Thanks to him, here's everything we know so far.
Redmi Note 6 Pro: At a glance
As of now, there is no information on how Note 6 Pro would look like. That said, Xiaomi has offered notch-based display on its high-end phone like Mi 8 and on budget offering like Mi A2 Lite. Hence, a notch is expected on Note 6 Pro too. Further, considering Note 5 Pro has a metal unibody and a full-HD+ display, that is the least its successor would get.
A dual-rear camera setup is certain
The Redmi Note 5 Pro sports a dual rear-camera setup comprising a 12MP, f/2.2 primary sensor and 5MP secondary sensor with an f/2.0 aperture. Hence, it is a safe guess that Note 6 Pro would also come with a dual rear camera setup. Moreover, Xiaomi may also offer improved optics along with some AI-powered image enhancement features.
Tipster leaks pricing and specs of Redmi Note 6 Pro
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro incoming. 3/32GB and 4/64GB models. In Gold, Blue or Black. Priced at ~200/250 Euro likely much cheaper elsewhere as usual. And also probably coming in more colors.— Roland Quandt (@rquandt) August 28, 2018
Under the hood
According to the latest leak, the Redmi Note 6 Pro will come in 3GB RAM/32GB storage and 4GB RAM/64GB storage configurations in Europe. However, Xiaomi might offer a 6GB RAM variant in key markets like India and China. Further, the phone is expected to get an upgraded Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset as against the Snapdragon 636 processor on the Redmi Note 5 Pro.
Pricing and availability
Quandt claims that the Redmi Note 6 Pro will come in Black, Blue, and Gold color options. Further, he suggests the smartphone will be priced between EUR 200-250 (approx. Rs. 16,500-Rs. 20,600). However, it may be priced cheap in markets like India and in Xiaomi's home turf China, considering the phone would be manufactured locally for both the markets.
