Xiaomi’s popular Redmi Note 5 Pro is scheduled to get a upgrade soon in the form of the Redmi Note 6 Pro. The new smartphone has been leaked many times on social media, even before an official launch. In the latest leak, the Redmi Note 6 Pro has been spotted on a international retail website. Additionally, an alleged hands-on video of the phone has been uploaded by a popular Indian tech YouTuber. If the leak is to be believed, then the Redmi Note 6 Pro price will be much higher than that of its predecessor. Let’s get into the details.
Starting off with the retail listing, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro has been spotted in the wild on a retail website in Moldova, a small country in Eastern Europe. The website currently lists the base 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant of the Xiaomi smartphone at a price of MLD 5,799, which translates to about Rs. 25,000, a steep hike from the current-gen Redmi Note 5 Pro.
The listing also mentions some internal specifications, including 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC, dual cameras (12-megapixel + 5-megapixel) at the back, two camera sensors (20-megapixel + 5-megapixel) at the front, and a 6.26-inch full-HD+ IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080×2280 pixels and display notch. Other features mentioned in the listing include Android 8.1 Oreo software, 4,000mAh, microSD card support up to 256GB, and 157.9×76.4×8.2mm dimensions.
Just last week, the Redmi Note 6 Pro price for the global variant had been spotted on Chinese e-tailer AliExpress’ website. There it was priced between $193.99 to $218.99 (around Rs. 14,100 to Rs. 15,900).
The unit that he got a hold of comes in the 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage configuration, and is the Black colour option. Inside the box is a Micro-USB cable, a 10W adapter, a SIM ejector tool, and a TPU back case. Design of the smartphone looks largely similar to the Redmi Note 5 Pro except the display notch. It seems to be running MIUI 9.6 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box.
