Redmi 6 Pro is the Brand’s First Phone with a Notch, Also Comes with Snapdragon 625!

While the Xiaomi’s Mi Pad 4 has been making more waves online due to the rarity of tablets, the company’s budget-minded sub-brand also announced the Redmi 6 Pro. The Redmi Pro series has typically blurred the line between mid-range and high-end and the Redmi 6 Pro has certainly followed in that tradition.

It comes equipped with an impressive 5.84″ FHD+ display with 1080 x 2280 resolution. That gives it a 19:9 aspect ratio and a pixel density of 432ppi. Whether you love them or hate them, it also comes with a notch where you’d find the front camera and sensors.

Mobile photography enthusiasts will definitely appreciate its 12mp + 5mp AI-assisted cameras. There’s also a 5mp front camera with AI and smart beauty for improved selfies.

The Redmi 6 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 625 SoC under the hood and comes in three different RAM/ROM variants. The base model comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage, which will set you back CNY 999 or roughly PHP 8.2K. The higher end 4GB + 32GB and 4GB + 64GB models are priced at CNY 1,199 (about PHP) and CNY 1,299, respectively.

Hopefully, we’ll get to see the Redmi 6 Pro locally soon, but as it was just announced, there’s no official PH release date yet.

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
