After launching Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A in China last week, Xiaomi is heading towards two other big releases which are lined for a launch next Monday. This time, the Chinese technology giant has confirmed that it will be unveiling the Redmi 6 Pro as well as the newest iteration of the Mi Pad.
Aside from disclosing the launch date, Xiaomi has also revealed key specifications using a football-themed poster which was shared on Weibo. In this poster, Xiaomi shares clear hints using symbols such as “AI”, “625”, “4000”. From an optimistic purview, Xiaomi appears to be hinting at AI capabilities which form a crucial part of MIUI 10, a Snapdragon 625 chipset, and a 4,000mAh battery.
The poster also displays 19-9 in a scorecard which presumably hints at a display aspect ratio of 19:9. With this aspect ratio and the earlier leaks, the Redmi 6 Pro could also sport a notch, if its Tenaa listing is on point.
Based on a report by GizChina, the smartphone could be equipped with a 4GB RAM (at least on one of the variants) and run on MIUI 9.5.6 based on Android 8.1. It could be the same device which appeared on TENAA last month and showed off the notch on the front, The Redmi 6 Pro could feature a 5.85-inch Full HD+ display. The smartphone will feature dual cameras on the back with 12MP as the primary sensor and a 5MP shooter on the front.
Xiaomi also teased the launch of the much-awaited Mi Pad 4, also scheduled for the same date. This poster does not reveal a lot of details apart from the single rear camera and an 8-inch Full HD display. But based on past leaks, we can assume that the Mi Pad 4 will we powered by a Snapdragon 660 chipset and come with a 6,000mAh battery.
Additional details from the leak include information about the cameras on the Mi Pad 4 which will be a 13MP sensor on the back and a 5MP selfie shooter. These cameras will miss out on 4K recording despite it being supported by the processor, but it is likely to come with a portrait mode.
Apart from these devices, Xiaomi was also expected to reveal the Mi Max 3 but CEO Lei Jun reportedly confirmed that the device will be launched next month. We’ll keep you posted about the new launches as they happen.
