Redmi Note 6 Pro: Specifications, Features
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro features a 6.26-inch IPS LCD screen with a 2280 x 1080 pixels resolution, 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch. The smartphone is fueled by a Snapdragon 636 SoC, with both memory variants on sale sporting expandable storage via microSD card slot. The device also comes with a 12MP+5MP dual-camera at the back, with another dual-selfie shooter sporting a 20MP+2MP configuration. The rear-facing camera setup might sound similar to the Redmi Note 5 Pro but this new phone has dual-pixel PDAF for faster focusing and f/1.9 aperture for brighter images.
Thankfully, there is a 3.5mm audio jack present, with the Redmi Note 6 Pro receiving power through its microUSB port. The battery capacity is a massive 4000mAh cell, with Bluetooth 5.0, IR Blaster, and FM radio being a part of the entire package.
