Redmi Note 6 Pro

Xiaomi recently launched the Note 6 Pro. This has more highlight to its camera setup 2 rear & 2 front. The camera is powered by AI to detect various scenes & other things. Let’s see all its configuration. The phone comes with 4GB & 6Gb RAM.

The Display & Design

It comes with a 6.26-inch FullHD+ IPS LCD display with an aspect ratio of 19:9. The display has a notch which makes it different from Note 5 Pro. The Design is similar to Redmi Note 5 Pro. Xiaomi could have done better or changed the design. But overall it is a good display. And for notch lovers this is a bonus.


The Redmi Note 6 Pro relies on a 12+5MP dual camera unit on the back. It’s the same resolution as its predecessor, but the camera has a wider f/1.9 aperture along with larger 1.4um pixels. A wider aperture and larger pixels both contribute to the camera absorbing more light and as a result, that should ideally lead to better photos. Since the size of the pixels are larger on the Redmi Note 6 Pro even when the number of pixels are the same as the Redmi Note 5 Pro, it’s fair to assume the phone is using a larger sensor as well, although Xiaomi didn’t disclose what sensor the phone is using. On the front, there’s now a rather wide notch cut-out into the display. It’s purpose is to house a 20+2MP dual camera unit for better selfies.

Performance & Software

This is where there’s hardly any difference in between the Redmi Note 6 Pro and it’s predecessor. All other Redmi Note phone have outperformed their respective predecessors in both benchmark tests and in real-world usage, but not this one. The Redmi Note 6 Pro relies on the same Snapdragon 636 SoC coupled with either 4GB or 6GB RAM,  along with 64GB storage. While the hardware configuration did excite us in the beginning of the year, by the end of 2018, it has become the standard. The Snapdragon 636, with it’s eight Kryo 260 cores clocked at 1.8GHz, is now aging quickly in the face of the Snapdragon 660 and the Kirin 710 being offered in the same price. The benchmark reports corroborate that.


This phone has 4000 mAh battery and charges via micro usb instead of using a c type port.

Overall Verdict

This is an good device considering the price point of 13k. There are other phones like Realme 2 Pro. Which is a great device and offers better things such as better design, glass back, teardrop notch. If you increase your budget you can also go for Mi A2 which has a clean UI and runs on Android One & has got Pie update and the camera is extremely well on A2. I would say if you like MIUI the you can go for it, Otherwise go for Realme 2 Pro.
