Redmi Note 6 Pro

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro could launch soon in India. Xiaomi recently launched the Android smartphone in Thailand a few weeks ago. The capable mid-range large-screen Android handset succeeds the Redmi Note 5 Pro. Although the Xiaomi smartphone is yet to officially launch in India, MySmartPrice has managed to obtain confirmed information about different variants of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro that will arrive in the Indian shores presumably in the next few weeks.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro Indian Variants:

According to reliable sources, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro will launch in two memory configurations: 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM + 64GB internal storage. As is the norm with Xiaomi smartphones, buyers would certainly have the provision to expand onboard storage by up to 256GB.

Interestingly, buyers will have the choice of buying the Redmi Note 6 Pro in three color options: Rose Gold, Black, and Blue and Red. The last color option seems a little more interesting owing to the two colors. It is quite likely the Xiaomi smartphone may sport two-tone color scheme. A few of the Redmi Series smartphones have launched in Special Editions, but Xiaomi has maintained the pricing. Hence it is possible Xiaomi may keep the prices of all these variants equal.

Earlier:

It hasn’t even been six months since the launch of the Redmi Note 5 Pro, and Xiaomi has already launched the Redmi Note 6 Pro. The device is currently available in Thailand, and it is expected to hit the Indian shores soon. The Redmi Note 6 Pro brings only a few improvements over its predecessor, which we will talk about later. With its expected price of Rs. 15,999, it already loses out to some of the smartphones that are currently on sale in India. By the time the Redmi Note 6 Pro launches in India, it will have even more competitors. If you are planning to purchase this device, here is everything you need to know about it.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro: Expected Price in India

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro price in India is expected to be Rs. 12,999. Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is due to be launched in November 2018. The 4GB+64GB variant is expected to cost around Rs. 12,999 and the 6GB+128GB variant is expected to cost around Rs. 14,999. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro comes in multiple colour options like Rose Gold, Denim Blue, Black, and Red which are also priced the same.

As I’ve mentioned earlier, the Redmi Note 6 Pro is not a big upgrade over the Redmi Note 5 Pro. It brings only two significant improvements – a larger display along with the notch, and a dual-camera setup at the front.

The display is now 6.26-inches as opposed to 5.99-inches on the Redmi Note 5 Pro. The notched bezel-less design increases the screen-to-body ratio from 77.4% on its predecessor to a respectable 81.4%. The IPS LCD technology and Gorilla Glass protection over it remains unchanged. While the Redmi Note 5 Pro already had a great 20MP camera at the front, there is now a 2MP depth-sensor in addition to it to improve the portrait mode. Although the dual-camera at the front comes at the cost of LED flash (the Redmi Note 5 Pro has it); hence, the lowlight images won’t be as good now.

The Redmi Note 6 Pro offers 12MP+5MP dual-camera setup at the rear, just like its predecessor. However, it now uses a newer 12MP sensor, which has an f/1.9 aperture as opposed to f/2.2 on the Redmi Note 5 Pro. This should improve the camera’s lowlight image quality. The Redmi Note 5 Pro did not offer 4K video recording, while its cheaper siblings had it, and the same continues with the Redmi Note 6 Pro. The device does not offer 4K video recording when all of its competitors have it. The lack of this is going to be a deal-breaker for some.

The smartphone still uses the Snapdragon 636 SoC albeit everyone’s expectation of it packing a faster, Snapdragon 660 chipset. In Thailand, the smartphone is available in only 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant. However, when it launches in India, we expect it to come in 6GB+128GB option alongside the 4GB+64GB model. The device comes with Android 8.1 Oreo topped with MIUI 10. A few reports suggest that it will get Android 9 Pie soon after its launch.

Powering the smartphone is the same 4000mAh battery that we’ve come to see across all Redmi Note devices in the past. There is no confirmation of it supporting fast charging, but we believe it will feature the same considering its predecessor has it. The connectivity options remain the same. It offers dual-SIM card slot with 4G VoLTE support. There is dual-band Wi-Fi ac/b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.0, A-GPS, GPS, infrared port, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The device uses microUSB port, in the era where everyone else is shifting to USB Type-C port. Also, there is still no dedicated microSD card slot.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro: Expected Launch Date

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is expected to launch in India in November. Unfortunately, we still don’t have an exact date. Xiaomi has launched the smartphone in Thailand, and the brand is all set to launch it in other markets soon.

How Does the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro Compare Against Its Competitors?

With the expected price of Rs. 14,999, the Redmi Note 6 Pro will go head to head against the Motorola Moto One Power, Realme 2 Pro, Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1, and the Nokia 6.1 Plus. While the Redmi Note 6 Pro looks like a better package overall compared to the Zenfone Max Pro M1 and the Nokia 6.1 Plus, it will have a tough time to beat the Realme 2 Pro and the Motorola Moto One Power.

Why? Because the Moto One Power has almost everything that the Redmi Note 6 Pro has, but it also comes with a massive 5000mAh battery, USB Type-C port, and 4K video recording. The Realme 2 Pro, on the other hand, beats the Redmi Note 6 Pro with its twice as powerful Snapdragon 660 processor, while having almost all the features of the Redmi Note 6 Pro except for its smaller 3500mAh battery.

There was a time when smartphones from Xiaomi were way ahead of their competition, but that does not seem to be the case anymore. It looks like other brands are doing better than they used to. That or Xiaomi isn’t working hard enough. Either way, I think the Redmi Note 6 Pro will not be the best smartphone in its price range when it launches in India.
