The Redmi Note 6 Pro is here and it has some big shoes to fill. Xiaomi’s achievements has been built upon a simple formula: offer powerful hardware at aggressive prices to undercut the competition. One recent example of this tactic was the predecessor to the Redmi Note 6 Pro. With the Redmi Note 5 Pro, the Chinese manufacturer has been tough to beat around the Rs. 15,000 price mark thanks to the utilization of the Snapdragon 636 SoC. The device has been extremely popular, so naturally, that boosts the expectations we have from its successor, the Redmi Note 6 Pro.
Xiaomi is apparently playing safe and it has retained the identical Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor. What is different now is the fact that Redmi Note 6 Pro turns into a notched display and dual cameras on the front and also the Redmi Note 6 Pro Back Cover . Can the newest Redmi Note 6 Pro be as successful since the phone it replaces? We put it for the test to learn.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro design – With regards to size, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is roughly similar to its predecessor, the Redmi Note 5 Pro (Review). In reality, if you position the Xiaomi Mi A2 , Redmi Note 5 Pro, and Redmi Note 6 Pro next to one another and face down, you won’t be able to separate them easily. The vertical dual camera setup protrudes slightly and does not let the phone rest flat when lying on any surface. The digital camera module also houses an LED flash. A metal backplate sits over the plastic frame from the smartphone.
However, from the front, the Redmi Note 6 Pro stands out, primarily because it features a bigger display using a notch at the very top. This notch is bigger compared to the one on the Redmi 6 Pro, Xiaomi’s first smartphone having a notch in India.
Xiaomi has positioned the power and the volume buttons on the right. The ability button is not hard to hit, but the volume buttons need a bit of a stretch to reach. All buttons offer solid feedback. On the top, this phone has a 3.5mm headphone jack, a secondary microphone, and an IR emitter which can be used to control appliances . In the bottom, there’s a Micro-USB port which is a little disappointing, due to the fact other phones in this particular range of prices including the Nokia 6.1 Plus and the Motorola One Power sport USB Type-C ports. You can find grilles on either side from the Micro-USB port only the main one on the right houses a loudspeaker.
The left side from the phone is bare and only has the hybrid dual-SIM tray. Xiaomi has curved the rear of the telephone that make it comfortable to hold. The 182g weight is also masked well, which phone will not feel uncomfortable to keep. In case you are wondering concerning the weight, the Redmi Note 6 Pro is heavy as it packs in a 4000mAh battery.
The Redmi Note 6 Pro will come in two variants, one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, as well as the other with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Our review unit was the second. You do have the solution to expand storage utilizing the hybrid dual-SIM tray but rjxpio the expense of another SIM. While 64GB of internal storage should suffice for many individuals, a passionate microSD card slot would’ve helped. There exists support for dual 4G in addition to dual VoLTE.
Other connectivity options on the Redmi Note 6 Pro include Bluetooth 5, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, GPS, and FM Radio. In addition, it has a Wi-Fi passthrough feature that lets the telephone work as a Wi-Fi repeater. We connected the Redmi Note 6 Pro to the Wi-Fi access point as usual, and after that connected a few other devices to the smartphone using its hotspot feature. It worked as advertised, and that we could access the web with the Redmi Note 6 Pro.
This phone also offers support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3. but Xiaomi only ships a 10W charger inside the box. You can get a quick charger separately to allow fast charging. Much like the Xiaomi Poco F1, the Redmi Note 6 Pro also gets a water-resistant P2i coating.
