Xiaomi has been dominating the Indian budget smartphone market for quite some time now. The company’s Redmi and Mi series offers affordable yet performance-driven products that deliver best-in-class features and performance in their respective price-point.
Adding on to its budget portfolio, the company has today launched the Redmi 6 Pro for the Indian market. The Redmi 6 Pro is the third device from Xiaomi in the Redmi 6 series. The other devices which come in the Redmi 6 series are the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A. The Redmi 6 Pro comes with some trending features such as a notched display, dual rear camera setup, AI Portrait mode and more.
Design: Compact body with Matt textured finish
Xiaomi has used an all-plastic casing to construct the smartphone. The plastic appears to be of decent quality. The rear panel of the device has a Matte textured finish. The Redmi 6 Pro is slightly heavy due to the fact that it packs in a massive 4,000 mAh battery unit. However, the device has a compact form factor which makes it quite easy to operate with a single hand. Also, the matte finish back ensures a good grip that as the device feels less slippery in hands.
Display: 5.84-inch Full HD+ display with a notch
In terms of display, Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro features a 5.84-inch FHD+ screen which has an aspect ratio of 19:9. As we mentioned earlier this is the first budget Xiaomi device to feature a notch. The notch is smaller in size much like the Nokia 6.1 Plus and houses the camera and earpiece.
Camera: Dual-lens rear camera and 5MP front camera
Redmi 6 Pro sports a dual-rear camera setup and a single camera at the front. The dual-rear camera setup includes a 12MP primary sensor and a 5MP secondary sensor. The rear camera comes with features such as AI Portrait mode and AI beautify mode. The rear camera is capable to capture good quality images in daylight. The images show decent detail and nearly accurate Colors.
Hardware and Software:
Under the hood, the device is powered by a Qualcomm’s mid-range Snapdragon 625 SoC along with Adreno 506 GPU for graphics. The Redmi 6 Pro is available in two different storage and RAM variants with the first being 3GB+32GB variant and the second is a 4GB+64GB variant. The device has a dedicated microSD card which indicates that the storage is expandable. The on-sheet specs of the device are pretty decent and it appears that we will get a lag-free user experience.
Battery and Connectivity:
The Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro is powered by a massive 4,000mAh battery which is quite impressive. The bigger battery should make sure that the device last for a longer duration with moderate to heavy usage, however like we mentioned earlier we still need to test the device thoroughly before we can verify any claims or the performance of the device.
