Xiaomi has refreshed its best selling Redmi Note series with the new Redmi Note 6 Pro. The new device takes over from last year’s Redmi Note 5 Pro with a refined design, and brushed metallic back that gives a good hand-feel.
The phone features a 6.26-inch Full HD+ notched display that boasts a 500nits brightness along with Gorilla Glass protection on the top. Internally, there’s P2i coating that makes the internal components resilient to water ingress. However, there’s no specific IP rating, which means you shouldn’t deliberately try to dunk it in the water.
The Redmi Note 6 Pro uses the same SoC as the 5 Pro like the quad-core Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB or 6GB of RAM and runs MIUI 10 (the phone comes with MIUI 9 out of the box but there’s a zero-day patch available to upgrade the phone).
The phone supports both face and fingerprint unlock and comes with 4000mAh battery, IR Blaster, Quick Charge 3.0 support, hybrid SIM slot.
The Redmi Note 6 Pro comes with quad cameras with two in the front and two at the back. The back has a 12+5MP setup with dual pixel autofocus, f/1.9 aperture, AI mode and EIS for video. The front has a 20+2MP setup with 4-in-1 super pixel and AI support.
The phone goes on sale from tomorrow on Flipkart for Rs. 13,999 and Rs. 15,999 for the 4GB and 6GB variant respectively.
