Upgrade Over The Redmi Note 6 Pro, Using ‘Proper’ SD660
At the launch, Xiaomi also made one big revelation by naming phones like the Realme 2 Pro, Asus Zenfone M2 Pro, Oppo K1, and Vivo 11 Pro, to be integrated with Snapdragon 660 Lite instead of Snapdragon 660 (used on the Redmi Note 7). The company said some of the brands were cheating the consumers by using the ‘Lite’ variant of the SD660, which delivers 10% lesser performance.
