Pricing and Specifications of Redmi Note 6 Pro
Display & Design
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro has a 6.26-inch FullHD + (1080×2160 pixels) IPS Notch display with 19:9 aspect ratio. The Screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. Xiaomi has managed to achieve 86 percent screen-to-body ratio. The overall design of Note 6 Pro same as that of Note 5 Pro. The build quality is decent, and the phone feels good in the hand. Note 6 Pro’s dimensions are 157.9×76.38×8.2 millimeters & weight is 181 gm.
The display is sharp and bright with good viewing angles and colors. It is covered with a 2.5D glass which gives it a premium look. The notch on the top is big and there is a significant chin at the bottom as well. I think Xiaomi could have done a bit better here. Big notches mean less space for notification icons so that’s not great.
The Redmi Note 6 Pro smartphone runs on the MIUI 10 based on Android Oreo 8.1 Operating System.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is Powered by 14 nm Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor with Adreno 509 GPU for graphics is integrated.
The Note 6 Pro runs on same Snapdragon 636. Snapdragon 636 is a good midrange chipset with performance and efficiency, so we have no complaints. The app opens and closes fast. Gaming is smooth as well. If you use a ton of apps then maybe go for the 6GB RAM variant.
Both fingerprint sensor and face unlock work well on the Redmi Note 6 Pro. The fingerprint sensor is quick and accurate while the Face unlock takes a bit of time (less than a second) to unlock the device. Face unlock is not that secure and can be unlocked by another person so don’t use it if you have something on your phone that should not be seen by others.
RAM & Storage
The new Redmi Note Pro 6 has now available in two variant, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB Rom and 6GB RAM 64 GB ROM that can be increased by microSD card up to 256 GB. It is equipped with Dual-SIM (Nano) Hybrid SIM Slot.

The camera performs well and exceeded our expectations.

The smartphone’s battery is 4,000 mAh Li-polymer Battery come with 2 Watt 5amp Power adapter. with moderate usage, you can expect a battery backup of 2 days on a single charge. One nice improvement in Note 6 Pro is that Quick Charge 3.0 is available now. The phone does not come with a fast charger though and you need to buy it separately.
The speaker at the bottom of the device is surprisingly very loud and clear. The audio via the earphone is average if you don’t tweak the settings. So, I’d recommend going into setting and use the equalizer and sound enhancer options to improve audio via 3.5mm jack. Rating 8.5/10.
Redmi Note 6 Pro’s 6 GB RAM and 64GB storage variant has been priced at 15,999INR and the 4GB RAM and 64GB variants of the phone have been priced 13,999 INR. The phone will be available in Blue, Black, Gold, Red & Rose Gold Color option. You can Buy it from Flipkart.
Overall, Redmi Note 6 Pro is a well-balanced smartphone at 13999, we think it offers good value for money. If you have a budget of around 15000 and need a phone with a good build, good cameras, excellent battery, loudspeaker, fast charging then Note 6 Pro should be your choice.
You can go for other options If you need a better-looking phone and can compromise with the camera quality and battery backup, then Realme 2 Pro and Honor 8X are good options.
If you already have the Note 5 Pro, then you should skip the Note 6 Pro as it is not that big of an upgrade.”
