The successor to the popular Redmi Note 5 Pro, which sold in millions in India, is here and you may not have heard of it as Xiaomi didn’t really make a huge deal of it. Redmi Note 6 Pro quietly made its debut in Thailand earlier this week and it brings along a larger display with a notch, quad-cameras, and a ton of AI features.
Redmi Note 6 Pro Specs
The Redmi Note 6 Pro features a bigger 6.26-inch Full-HD+ IPS LCD panel with a 19:9 aspect ratio as compared to its predecessor. It touts of 86 percent screen-to-body ratio, thanks to the notch, but there’s still a huge chin on this device.
In line with its predecessor, the Redmi Note 6 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 636, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. It runs Xiaomi’s MIUI skin on top of Android 8.1 Oreo.
In the optics department, the Redmi Note 6 Pro comes with an upgraded set of cameras. There’s a 12-MP primary sensor, with an f/1.9 aperture and EIS, and a secondary 5-MP depth sensor on the rear. The newest addition here is the dual front cameras, with a 20-MP primary sensor and 2-MP depth sensor.
It also features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a humongous 4,000mAh battery that Xiaomi’s Note device is known for. To sum it all up, here’s a quick look at the specs table for the Redmi Note 6 Pro:

Price and Availability
Xiaomi has unveiled only one variant, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage of Redmi Note 6 Pro in Thailand. The device went on sale for 6,990 baht (approx. Rs. 15,999) in three different color variants namely Black, Blue, and Rose Gold.
We tried contacting Xiaomi India to know more about the device’s launch in the country, however, we haven’t received any concrete details about it. The device’s price, however, falls squarely in line with the Redmi Note 5 Pro that was launched at Rs 13,999 – but the price was ramped up to Rs 14,999 soon after.
