Teased just last week, the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro is now official. As expected, it has a notched display, as well as a very generous 4,000mAh battery. In typical Xiaomi fashion, the Redmi 6 Pro is also very competitively priced.
Like most smartphones with a notched display, the Redmi 6 Pro’s 5.84-inch screen has a 19:9 aspect ratio – taller than your usual 18:9 phones. This is to compensate for the notched area of the display, and it’s packing a resolution of 2280 x 1080. Pretty standard for a mid-range phone.
Aside from that, the Redmi 6 Pro is also (currently) the only device in the series with a Qualcomm chipset. Equipped with a Snapdragon 625 SoC, the Redmi 6 Pro should be fast enough for day-to-day usage. After all, it’s the very same chipset found in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4.
Other specifications of the Redmi 6 Pro include up to 4GB of RAM, two choices of internal storage (32GB or 64GB), a microSD card slot, a 12MP + 5MP dual-camera system, a 5MP front-facing shooter – with support for face unlock – and a 4,000mAh battery.
The Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro is now available for pre-order in China, and it remains to be seen if it will be launched outside of the country. As for retail prices, the base model with 32GB of storage and 3GB of RAM goes for 999 Chinese yuan (about RM615), while the 4GB models with 32GB and 64GB of storage retail at 1,199 yuan (approximately RM740) and 1,299 yuan (around RM800) respectively.
