Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 smartphone has just appeared on the website of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) in Russia. This strongly indicates the Xiaomi handset could soon launch in the Russian and other Eurasian markets.
Xiaomi recently launched the Redmi 6 Series smartphones, a trio of affordable yet capable Android devices. The series consists of entry-level Redmi 6A, the middle variant Redmi 6, and the high-end but still quite affordable Redmi 6 Pro. Incidentally, there exists a couple more Android smartphones that are part of the Redmi 6 Series, but didn’t launch along with the trio. The Redmi Note 6 and the Redmi Note 6 Pro could launch soon. The EEC listing that has just surfaced indicates these Xiaomi smartphones could be readying for a rollout in several more markets other than China and India.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Receives EEC Certification
In most of the cases, the EEC usually awards certifications to smartphones that bear a codename. But this time around the certification agency has openly acknowledged the smartphone as Redmi Note 6. We had recently reported about the Honor 8C securing the EEC Certification. In this case, the agency had the device with the codename ‘BKK-L21’. But as the below image clearly mentions, it is the Redmi Note 6. As if that wasn’t indication enough, the EEC also noted it was a Xiaomi branded smartphone. Incidentally, there is another smartphone that the EEC clubbed with the Redmi Note 6. The Mi Max 3 is also mentioned, but the device has already launched.
Xiaomi Redmi Note Expected Specifications, Featrures
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 hasn’t launched officially yet. But there have been several indicators in past that point to a few upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Series smartphones apart from the three that launched recently. Unknown devices with model number M1806E7TG and M1806E7TH had gained the required FCC, and NCC certification a few days ago. These smartphones were touted as the Redmi Note 6 and the Redmi Note 6 Pro. Later on, the same handset which carries a label M1806E7TG was certified by EEC in Russia. Now the EEC has openly certified the Redmi Note 6 without any codenames or labels. Hence the previous certifications could be for other Xiaomi smartphones.
The current EEC certification doesn’t offer any details about the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6. More details are perhaps hidden behind a secure firewall that requires a login. However, based on previous reports, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 features a 6-inch Full HD+ display. A powerful mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which could be SDM650 or SDM710, powers the handset with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. As is the norm with Xiaomi smartphones, a hybrid Dual SIM slot could boost onboard storage with the insertion of a micro-SD card.
The Redmi Note 6 packs a dual 12MP+5MP camera on the back and a 8MP front-facing camera. A large 4,000mAh battery, rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C port, 3.5 mm headphone jack are some of the highlights of the Android handset. The Redmi Note 6 should launch soon with presumably Android 8.1 Oreo-based MIUI 10.
