Xiaomi has grabbed a significant percentage of market share by selling Redmi Note 5 Pro in India. However, the scene in India has got a bit worst for Xiaomi now. As Nokia and Realme aim at bringing the Xiaomi monopoly now, they have to offer something sturdy to stay on top.
You might have already read our launch coverage of Realme 2 Pro, which offers Snapdragon 660 under Rs. 15000. As everybody started joining the Realme bandwagon, Xiaomi has launched Redmi Note 6 Pro in Thailand.
Xiaomi Launched Redmi Note 6 Pro in Thailand
If you know the specifications inside Note 5 Pro, you might wonder if the next iteration is a true upgrade over the previous one. Having been introduced to Realme 2 Pro, we can’t really digest the fact that Xiaomi is coming up with the same chipset.
As on any other smartphone, the display is the first thing you notice about Redmi Note 6 Pro. It has a 6.26-inch IPS LCD display with an aluminum unibody and a plastic top. Of course, they have brought a notch on top as well. We doubt whether or not the company will dare to launch the device in India.
Under the hood, you get Snapdragon 636 chipset coupled with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. There is a chance for Xiaomi to come up with variants of higher RAM and storage. You can increase the storage using an external SD card.
The camera is the one area you feel like Note 5 Pro is lagging behind. The successor carries dual camera setups on both front and back. The rear setup consists of a 12 MP primary and a 5 MP secondary sensor (for depth sensing). Up front, you will get a 20 MP and a 2 MP sensor. For the same reason, you will get an improved selfie portrait.
When it comes to battery, the capacity is 4000 mAh. You can get FastCharging assistance to charge it up quickly. The software is Android 8.1 Oreo with Xiami’s on MIUI 9.
We are not sure about the arrival of Note 6 Pro to India especially when Realme 2 Pro is alive with Snapdragon 660 at the same pricing. Maybe, they will introduce a new Realme 2 Pro killer specifically for the Indian market.
In Thailand, the 4+ 64 GB variant costs THB 6990, which comes to about Rs. 15700. So yeah, that’s all about Redmi Note 6 Pro. What do you think about it? Will you choose it over Realme 2 Pro?
