Earlier this month, Xiaomi launched three new smartphones in the Redmi series: Redmi 6A, Redmi 6 and the Redmi 6 Pro, which continued the company’s trend of offering impressive hardware at a competitive price point. It now appears that the Xiaomi is looking to expand the portfolio of its Redmi devices with two more smartphones, the Redmi 6 Plus and the Redmi Note 6.
The display assembly of the Redmi 6 Plus and the Redmi Note 6 was recently listed on Chinese e-commerce website AliExpress, which suggests that the Xiaomi might soon unveil the new additions to the Redmi 6 line-up.
As per the listing, the Redmi Note 6 will feature a 6.18-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 2246 pixels and a notch on top. The Redmi Note 6 was recently spotted on Eurasian Economic Commission’s website alongside another device, the Redmi Note 6 Pro.
While not much detail is available about the Redmi Note 6, another device called the Redmi Note 6 Pro surfaced online recently. A Weibo post pointed out that the Redmi Note 6 Pro’s Indian edition might ship with a Snapdragon 660 SoC. Moreover, the device is also expected to come in two variants, one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and a higher-end version with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
As for the Redmi 6 Plus, the AliExpress listing of its display assembly suggests that the upcoming device might pack a slightly smaller 5.99-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. Interestingly, the notch on the Redmi 6 Plus’ display is significantly wider than that on the Redmi Note 6. Also, there are a total of five cutouts on the Redmi 6 Plus’ notch, two of which seem to be for camera sensors.
Xiaomi is yet to announce a smartphone with dual front-facing cameras, so it would be quite interesting to see if the company debuts it on the Redmi 6 Plus. As for a probable launch timeline, there’s nothing in these listings that hints at a date.
Considering that the Redmi Note 5 was announced in February this year and the Redmi 5 Plus was unveiled back in December 2017, one can safely assume that we are still a few a months away from the Redmi Note 6 and the Redmi 6 Plus’ arrival.
