Xiaomi will be launching its Redmi Note 5 Pro successor aka the Redmi Note 6 Pro in India tomorrow. The phone has already been made official in other markets including Thailand and Indonesia. Considering the Redmi Note 5 Pro is still one of the best selling Xiaomi phones, the expectations from the Note 6 Pro are pretty high. Overall, the Redmi Note 6 Pro isn’t really a major upgrade from its predecessor.
The Redmi Note 6 Pro comes packed with four cameras in total. Two of the cameras are located on the back panel, while the other two sit on the notch on the front. It is also worth noting that the Note 6 Pro is the first Redmi Note phone to include a notched display. The notch seems to be pretty wide and includes dual selfie cameras, sensors and earpiece. So, if you’re a photography enthusiast or a selfie lover, Redmi Note 6 Pro is worth the wait. Apart from the camera, the Redmi Note 6 Pro also comes with a bigger display and better battery life, however, the internals of the phone remains the same as found in the Redmi Note 5 Pro. Here are some of the reasons why Redmi Note 6 Pro is worth the wait.
As far as the specifications are concerned, the Redmi Note 6 Pro comes with a primary sensor of 12MP and a 5MP secondary sensor. The second camera of the phone is dedicated for capturing portrait shots. Well, even though the camera setup of the Redmi Note 6 Pro is the same as the Redmi Note 5 Pro, what’s different in the new phone is the aperture. The Note 6 Pro comes with a wider aperture for the phone to capture more light and help users click clearer and brighter pictures in low light or tricky lightening situations. On the front, the Redmi Note 6 Pro packs a 20MP primary sensor while the secondary camera includes a 2MP sensor for portrait selfies.
The Redmi Note 6 Pro sports a 6.26-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD display paired with an aspect ratio of 19:9. Compared to the Redmi Note 5 Pro, the display of the Redmi Note 6 Pro is bigger but the form factor remains the same. This means that the users will love to play graphics-heavy games and watch videos on the Note 6 Pro.
The good bit is, the Redmi Note 6 Pro is the first Xiaomi phone to come with MIUI 10-based on Android Oreo out-of-the-box. To recall, the Redmi Note 5 Pro was launched with Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The upcoming Redmi phone comes with a range of MIUI 10 features like navigation gestures, new recent menu tabs, PiP mode, Android P-like volume slider and notification shade, AI features, and more. As of now, there’s no word if the phone will be upgraded to the next Android versions like Android P and Android Q.
The Redmi Note 5 Pro offers a great battery life but looks like with the Redmi Note 6 Pro Xiaomi has improved the battery performance. Much like the Redmi Note 5 Pro, the Redmi Note 6 Pro is backed by a 4000mAh battery and comes with Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 support.
