Earlier this week, Xiaomi introduced the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A smartphones at an event held in China. While rumors had been suggesting the company would launch the Redmi 6 Pro variant as well, the device didn’t show up at the launch event. However, we can now confirm that the Redmi 6 Pro does exist and is expected to be launched sometime later this year. Along with the Redmi 6 Pro, we can also confirm that Xiaomi is preparing to launch the Mi Max 3 phablet and Mi Pad 4 tablet as well. References to all the three devices were found on the Mi China website, which confirms that they will be launched in China before other markets, like most Xiaomi products.
Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro
An unannounced Xiaomi smartphone carrying the model number M1805D1SE had been spotted on TENAA last month, revealing a notched display and a dual-camera setup on both sides. While the smartphone was believed to be the Redmi 6 Plus, it is likely that the smartphone will debut as the Redmi 6 Pro when it launches in China. According to the listing on TENAA, the smartphone features a 5.84-inch Full HD+ resolution display with a 19:9 aspect ratio, an octa-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz, 12MP + 5MP dual-camera setup on both sides, and a 4000mAh capacity battery. In the memory department, the Redmi 6 Pro is expected to be available in three configurations – 2GB RAM + 16GB ROM, 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM, and 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM.
Mi Max 3
The Mi Max 3 is expected to feature a huge 6.99-inch LCD display with Full HD+ resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. Thanks to the tall aspect ratio, the Mi Max 3 shouldn’t be significantly larger than its predecessor in terms of size, despite the increase in screen size. The Mi Max 3 is rumored to be powered by Qualcomm’s powerful Snapdragon 710 mid-range SoC, paired with up to 6GB of RAM. At the rear, the Mi Max 3 is expected to feature a dual-camera setup with the primary sensor being a 20MP unit. On the software front, Mi Max 3 will be running on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box, just like the other recent launches from Xiaomi.
Mi Pad 4
The Mi Pad 4 will succeed the Mi Pad 3 Android tablet launched by Xiaomi in April last year. According to latest leaks, the tablet could be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor under the hood and feature an 18:9 aspect ratio display panel. It will have a single 13MP camera on the back and a 5MP camera on the front for video calls. Keeping the lights on could be a 6000mAh capacity battery.
