After lots of leaks and online appearance, Xioami has silently launched the Redmi Note 6 Pro. The device seems to be a slight upgrade of its predecessor Redmi Note 5 Pro. The basic difference between the Redmi Note 5 Pro and latest Redmi Note 6 Pro is the addition of notch display and 4 camera setup (2 front 2 Rear camera setup)
The phone has a 6.26-inch Full HD+ display on the front, coupled with 2.5D curved glass on top and it has an aspect ratio of 19:9. Xiaomi states the phone offers 86% screen-to-body ratio, marginally higher than the Redmi Note 5 Pro.
At the heart of the phone, we get the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Notably, Xiaomi has launched only one variant of the Note 6 Pro in Thailand, but in other countries, we might see other variants with higher RAM and internal storage. Users can also expand the storage with a microSD card slot. Based on rumours, the Note 6 Pro will be available in a 3GB+32GB storage option.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro price and availability
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro price is set at THB 6,990 (roughly Rs. 15,700) for the 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage configuration in Thailand, as revealed on Mi Forums and Facebook. Other variants of the smartphone have not yet been announced. The phone will be made available on Thailand-based e-commerce websites from September 27 to September 30 in Black, Blue, and Rose Gold colour options, with a free bundled Mi Selfie Stick or Mi Wi-Fi Repeater. There is no word on the Redmi Note 6 Pro price in India or release timeline yet.
