Xiaomi launches Redmi Note 6 Pro – a quad-camera phone in India


Xiaomi India has introduced Redmi Note 6 Pro in the country. It features a two-day battery that Redmi smartphones are known for, and for the first time brings an AI-powered quad-camera experience to the segment.

Redmi Note 6 Pro is the successor to Redmi Note 5 Pro, the number 1 dual camera smartphone in India as per a report from Canalys in July 2018. The Redmi Note 5 series crossed 5 million units in sales in a matter of 4 months since launch in February 2018.

Anuj Sharma, Chief Marketing Officer, Xiaomi India said, “Redmi Note has established a strong legacy in India over the last few years with each Redmi Note hitting industry milestones. With each generation, we have improved the overall smartphone experience and brought the best specs together – be it battery, camera or performance. Redmi Note 6 Pro provides meaningful upgrades to the bestselling Redmi Note 5 Pro and we hope Mi Fans would be able to enjoy a truly innovative product from Xiaomi.”

Redmi Note 6 Pro – Quad camera, two-day battery

Redmi Note 6 Pro features a contemporary arc design and sports the capable Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 636 octa-core processor. It brings to the table an AI-powered quad-camera setup and a 4000mAh two-day battery with support for Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 3.0. With high-speed LPDDR4X RAM in tandem, Redmi Note 6 Pro makes for quite a capable setup.

For an all-new selfie experience, Redmi Note 6 Pro’s 20MP + 2MP AI dual camera on the front allows you to take effortless portrait photos along with live portrait previews. The 12MP + 5MP AI dual camera setup on the rear with large 1.4µm pixels results in clear and crisp images even in low light. With portrait mode on both the front and the rear cameras, supported by Xiaomi’s new AI Portrait Mode 2.0, Redmi Note 6 Pro is truly a quad-camera wonder. The new and refined AI Portrait Mode 2.0 allows you to apply dynamic bokeh effects—including effects like Light trails and incredible Studio Lighting—to your images.

Redmi Note 6 Pro comes with a 6.26” FHD+ IPS display with a 19:9 aspect ratio which is reinforced with Corning® Gorilla® Glass to protect the display against wear and tear. Together with the 500-nit maximum brightness and 1500:1 contrast ratio, it delivers stunning visuals, whether you’re watching videos or playing games.

Thanks to the thoughtful ergonomic design, Redmi Note 6 Pro has a great hand feel and is pleasing to the eye. Complementing the all-round package is a 2+1 hybrid slot, allowing easy memory expansion and carrier selection. Support for dual VoLTE ensures you’re are covered on the connectivity front as well.

Redmi Note 6 Pro comes with MIUI 10 out of the box based on Android Oreo. MIUI 10’s multitude of optimizations mean that Redmi Note 6 Pro offers a bump in battery life, as well as features including Wi-Fi passthrough (essentially making your phone a Wi-Fi repeater) and a completely revamped recents menu that makes best use of available screen space.
