The most selling Chinese smartphone manufacturer in India, Xiaomi has unveiled its latest line-up of phones. The smartphone giant has launched the Xiaomi Redmi 6A, Redmi 6 and Redmi 6 Pro in India. All the three phones will cater to the budget buyers since they will come with an affordable price tag. Xiaomi previously in February launched the Redmi Note 5 which went on to become one of the highest selling phones in the country. Now the next milestone for the company would be to replicate the success of the Redmi Note 5 with the Redmi 6 Pro. Below we take an in-depth look at how the Redmi 6 Pro will be able to match the success of Redmi Note 5 in India.
Redmi 6 Pro: How it Will Replicate the Success of Redmi Note 5
On taking a closer look at both the phones, we see that Redmi 6 Pro and Redmi Note 5 come with almost similar specifications and similar price tag. Given the similarity between these two phones and combined with the minute improvements in this latest device, it is entirely possible that Redmi 6 Pro will attain the heights which Redmi Note 5 touched.
Design and Display
The display on the Redmi Note 5 resembles that of the Redmi 6 Pro. However, the only significant difference between the screens of these two phones is because of the notch. The Redmi 6 Pro comes with a notch up top, and it also has slimmer bezels on all four sides. The display gets a little bit taller as it now sports a 19:9 aspect ratio and also offers an HD+ resolution.
Cameras are another area where the Redmi 6 Pro goes a step ahead of the Redmi Note 5 by sporting a dual rear camera setup as opposed to the single camera on the Redmi Note 5. The dual rear camera setup is vertically oriented on the back side above the antenna lines, and it comprises a 12MP primary sensor and a 5MP depth sensor. The front camera on the Redmi 6 Pro has undergone no change, and it remains same as the Redmi Note 5- a 5MP shooter.
Hardware and Performance
In terms of performance, both the phones will perform equally since they both pack the Snapdragon 625 under the hood. Xiaomi has not updated the processor on the Redmi 6 Pro. However, even the Snapdragon 625 offers fluid day to day working. The RAM configuration of the two phones also remains the same.
Another plus point of the Redmi 6 Pro is the powerful battery which is a 4000mAh unit, same as the one we get to see on the Redmi Note 5. It will be safe to say that the phone will provide the users with two days worth of power.
Keeping all of this in mind, the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro will be a solid replacement for the Redmi Note 5 in Xiaomi’s portfolio. The phone has gone live on sale yesterday on September 11, and is also available today, September 12, on Amazon with a price tag of Rs 10,999.
