Qualcomm Snapdragon 636-powered Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro now official
Although most users do not really need a front-facing dual camera setup, Xiaomi is introducing one with the new Redmi Note 6 Pro because... why not? The new handset has a generous 6.26-inch display with a rather large notch that was needed to properly fit the two cameras, but it also shares a few design elements with the Redmi Note 5 Pro, especially on the back side.
Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, the Redmi Note 6 Pro has a screen resolution of 2,280 x 1,080 pixels and sports 4 GB of memory and 64 GB internal storage, supplemented by a microSD card slot. The cameras offer 12 MP + 5 MP for the usual mobile photography tasks and 20 MP + 2 MP for selfie lovers.
In terms of connectivity, the Redmi Note 6 Pro comes with Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi 802.11 ac, GPS, and an IR sensor. This handset has a 4,000 mAh battery under the hood and runs Android 8.1 Oreo with Xiaomi's MIUI skin on top.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro can be acquired in Thailand for the equivalent of US$215 already, but many other markets should follow soon. For less than US$250, its buyers definitely get a lot. What Android handset would you buy for around US$230? Let us know in the comments.
