Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro smartphone was launched in June 2018. The phone comes with a 5.84-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 2280 pixels at a PPI of 432 pixels per inch. It features metal construction with plastic caps on the rear top and bottom. The dual camera module is placed at the top left on the back, along with the LED flash.
The Redmi 6 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 system-on-chip. Xiaomi’s use of the Snapdragon 625 is starting to become legendary now, as this is yet another phone to use the now outdated chip, the Snapdragon 625 has long since been succeeded by the Snapdragon 630, which was itself succeeded by the newer Snapdragon 636. Xiaomi itself uses the Snapdragon 636 in the Redmi Note 5 Pro, so it’s perplexing to see the inclusion of the Snapdragon 625 in another Xiaomi budget phone.
The phone comes with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM. The 3GB RAM variant is paired with 32GB of storage, while there are two 4GB RAM variants that have 32GB or 64GB of storage. The Redmi 6 Pro also has a dedicated microSD card slot, which means that users can use two SIMs and a microSD card at the same time.
As far as the cameras are concerned, The Redmi 6 Pro’s dual camera setup is the same as the one found on the Redmi Note 5 Pro, as well as the Redmi S2/Redmi Y2. It has a 12MP primary camera with 1.25μm pixels, f/2.2 aperture and EIS, which is augmented by a 5MP depth sensing camera with f/2.2 aperture. The primary camera has phase detection autofocus (PDAF). It can record video up to 108op resolution at 30fps.
The Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro is powered by MIUI 9 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. The phone has support for AI-based face unlock, just like newer Xiaomi devices and is powered by a 4000mAh non removable battery. It measures 149.33 x 71.68 x 8.75 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 178.00 grams.
Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG and FM. Sensors on the phone include Compass/ Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer and Ambient light sensor.
