Xiaomi is believed to have begun work on the possible successor to the Redmi 5. A few days back, some real-life images of a device alleged to be the Xiaomi Redmi 6 popped up on the net but was later disproved by a TENAA listing of a Xiaomi smartphone with model number M1804C3DE which listed different images.
Today, another smartphone with the Xiaomi stamp, with a similar Xiaomi M1805D1SE model number has now been spotted on TENAA site for the requisite certification in China. The device is believed to be the pro variant of the alleged Redmi 6 (Xiaomi M1804C3DE ) that was certified a while ago.
Unlike the Xiaomi M1804C3DE, the newly certified Redmi 6 pro is seen with a vertically placed dual rear camera and a notched display, as opposed to the horizontally aligned camera and a notch-less display on the Xiaomi M1804C3DE. The provided images match up with the hands-0n images that surfaced earlier on.

Aside from the structural differences, both variants also differ internally. The alleged Redmi 6 pro flaunts a larger 5.84-inch (2280×1080 pixels) Full HD+ 19:9 2.5D curved glass display, but packs the same 2GHz Octa-Core processor and will come in similar RAM and storage combinations: 2GB RAM +16GB storage, 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, with the option to expand the memory up to 256GB with microSD.
The TENAA listing reveals the alleged Redmi 6 pro will come fitted with a dual rear camera setup made of a 12MP primary sensor with an 8MP secondary sensor, while a 5MP sensor with LED flash will be incorporated into the display notch.
Based on Android 8.1 Oreo OS, the alleged Redmi 6 pro will be powered by a massive 3900mAh battery and will come in Black, Rose Gold, Gold, White, Blue, Red, Pink, Gray and Silver colour options.
We are not certain when Xiaomi plans to unveil the device, but there are rumours the company might launch the Redmi 6 at its 8th-anniversary event scheduled for May 31.
