Introduced at the end of September in Thailand, the 6.26-inch Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is now coming to India. Although the 6 GB RAM variant was supposed to come with 128 GB of internal storage, both models available in India seem to sport 64 GB (there is also microSD support, fortunately).

The most expensive Redmi handset by Xiaomi, namely the Redmi Note 6 Pro, is finally ready to take on the Indian market. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro did great there, so its successor has some big shoes to fill in. The new Redmi Note 6 Pro promises to offer exactly what most Indian consumers are looking for — a big screen and high-quality selfies, as well as a reasonably fast processor — without breaking the bank.

Without further ado, these are the highlights of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 636
  • Memory/Storage: 4 GB or 6 GB RAM; 64 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 256 GB
  • Display: 6.26-inch IPS LCD with 2,280 x 1,080 pixels and 500 nits brightness
  • Cameras: 12 + 5 MP main camera with f/1.9 aperture; 20 + 2 MP selfie shooter with AI face unlock
  • Battery: 4,000 mAh with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.4 pounds; 6.22 x 3.01 x 0.33 inches
  • Operating system: Android 8.1 Oreo with MIUI 9 on top 

The list of connectivity capabilities includes an IR blaster, dual-band WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, FM radio, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS support, Bluetooth 5.0, as well as a traditional 3.5 mm audio jack.

The Indian customers can get the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro in black, rose gold, red, or blue. The pricing details are not available yet, but we expect both variants to be priced lower than the local equivalent of US$250.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
