Redmi 6 Pro Top 5 Features You Should Know Before it Arrives India: Specifications, Price, India Launch Date

Here are the top five features of Xiaomi's first Redmi smartphone with an iPhone X-style notch at the top, the Redmi 6 Pro.


Earlier today, Xiaomi launched two new products in China – Mi Pad 4 Android tablet and the Redmi 6 Pro budget Android smartphone. The Redmi 6 Pro is the company’s very first budget device to feature an ultra-tall 19:9 aspect ratio. In this post, we are going to take a look at the five most impressive features of the latest Xiaomi smartphone.

Redmi 6 Pro: Top 5 Features You Should Know

  1. The Redmi 6 Pro is Xiaomi’s first Redmi series smartphone to feature a notched display. It sports a 5.84-inch sized IPS LCD panel with 1080 x 2280 Full HD+ resolution, 19:9 aspect ratio, 1500:1 static contrast ratio, and 84% coverage of the NTSC color gamut. The display has a 2.5D curved glass layer on top. If you are someone who thinks notched displays look tasteful and are looking to purchase a new budget Android smartphone soon, the Redmi 6 Pro should certainly on top of your list.
  2. On the back of the smartphone is an impressive 12MP + 5MP dual-camera setup with AI Scene Recognition and an AI Portrait Mode. Xiaomi is using a Sony IMX486 as the primary sensor, while the secondary 5MP sensor is the Samsung S5K5E8. The primary sensor boasts 1.25um pixel size. Both the sensors are coupled with a f/2.2 aperture. When it comes to video, the Redmi 6 Pro can capture up to Full HD resolution videos.
  3. The Redmi 6 Pro is equipped with a 5MP selfie camera on the front, similar to the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A smartphones. While the resolution may not be very impressive compared to a few other Redmi smartphones, the Redmi 6 Pro front-facing camera does come with an AI Portrait Mode, AI Face Unlock, and AI Smart Beauty features. It even comes with HDR support.
  4. Xiaomi’s latest Redmi series smartphone packs an impressive 4000mAh capacity non-removable battery. That’s a significant increase compared to the 3000mAh capacity batteries inside the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A smartphones. With a 4000mAh capacity battery inside, the Redmi 6 Pro should be capable of delivering impressive battery life, more or less comparable to the stamina offered by the Redmi Note 5. The Redmi Note 5 is powered by the same Snapdragon 625 chipset as the Redmi 6 Pro and packs an identical 4000mAh battery with 5V 2A
  5. The notched display and the AI dual-camera setup aren’t the only features that set the Redmi 6 Pro apart from the Redmi Note 5. It also offers one other key feature that is missing in both the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro – a dedicated microSD card slot. Instead of a Hybrid Dual-SIM slot configuration, the Redmi 6 Pro features two Nano-SIM card slots and a dedicated microSD card slot for further expansion up to 256GB.

Redmi 6 Pro: Other Key Specifications

The Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro is powered by an octa-core 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor clocked at 2.0 GHz with an Adreno 506 GPU clocked at 650 MHz. It is available in three memory configurations – 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, 4GB RAM + 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. Connectivity features offered by the Redmi 6 Pro include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, an IR blaster, and 4G VoLTE. In addition to Face Unlock support, the smartphone is equipped with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor as well. The budget Android smartphone measures 149.33 x 71.68 x 8.75mm and weighs in at 178 grams. On the software front, Redmi 6 Pro runs on the Android 8.1 Oreo-based MIUI 9 out of the box.

Redmi 6 Pro: Expected Price in India, Launch Date

The Redmi 6 Pro is expected to be launched in India along with the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A smartphones within two months. As for the pricing, we expect the Redmi 6 Pro to be slotted between the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro smartphones in India, which means you can expect the Redmi 6 Pro 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant to cost Rs.12,999. However, it remains to be seen if Xiaomi will be bringing all three memory configurations of the Redmi 6 Pro to Indian shores.
