Putting all leaks and rumors to rest, at last, Xiaomi has announced that it will launch the much-awaited successor to its ultra-popular Redmi Note 5 Pro – the Redmi Note 6 Pro in India on November 22.
Redmi Note 6 Pro was first launched in Thailand back in September, in Indonesia earlier this month and is now finally coming to India to satisfy fans who have been waiting with bated breaths. The Chinese giant announced the launch date via an official tweet, merely minutes ago:
The story of our greatest legacy unveils soon. The new Note is rising. #RedmiNote6Pro is coming on 22.11.2018.

Redmi Note 6 Pro: Specs
The Redmi Note 6 Pro builds upon the legacy of its predecessor but introduces a mix of some modern elements, such as smaller bezels, the notch, and an increased number of cameras.
This device features a huge 6.26-inch Full-HD+ IPS LCD panel with a 19:9 aspect ratio with a notch, of course! It boasts of an improved 86% screen-to-body ratio but we still have a massive bottom chin to deal with.
Much like its predecessor, it is powered by the same Snapdragon 636 SoC, coupled with up to 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of onboard storage.
This device was the first Xiaomi smartphone to sport a quad-camera setup, but Mi Mix 3 has since followed suit. It includes a 12MP primary sensor, with an f/1.9 aperture, and a secondary 5MP depth sensor on the rear. There’s EIS and AI Scene Recognition on board here as well, something which was missing on the Redmi Note 5 Pro.
On the front, you will get a dual-camera setup, with a 20MP primary sensor and 2MP depth sensor. The device runs Xiaomi’s MIUI 10 skin on top of Android Oreo, includes a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a huge 4,000mAh battery.
