Xiaomi Redmi 6 pro

Just as it had scheduled, Xiaomi, in the very early hours of today officially unveiled the Redmi 6 Pro alongside the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4, even though both devices already appeared on the official website beforehand. The new phone could be seen as the sequel to the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A announced a while ago. It features the now trending iPhone X style display notch, making it the first of the Redmi series to come with the feature.

Aside from the notched display, the Redmi 6 pro looks virtually the same as the Redmi Note 5 featuring a vertically stacked dual camera with a fingerprint sensor at the rear.

As for the innards, the Redmi 6 pro flaunts a 5.84-inch Full HD+ display(2280×1080 pixel resolution)   and is powered by the Octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC with Adreno 506 GPU. It is available in 3GB RAM with 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM with 32GB/64GB storage variant, all of which can be expanded up to 256GB using MicroSD card. It supports triple card slots, and that means you have a dedicated slot for memory expansion.

    Is it just me or is Xiaomi becoming more and more boring. This to me is:
    1.A redmi 5plus with a smaller screen + notch and + a 5MP secondary camera.
    2.A redmi S2 with FHD, smaller screen+ notch, 5MP camera and a 4Ah battery.
    3. A redmi note 5 with a snapdragon 625, smaller screen+ notch.
    4. A mi note8 SE with bigger battery, SD 625 5MP camera.
    5. A redmi 6 with again a SD 625, a notch + a secondary camera.
    And let’s not forget, redmi 4 prime, redmi note 4x, mi mix 2, mi 5x, redmi 5 plus, note 5, redmi S2, and all future SD 625 that are coming! Congratulations Xiaomi, you made me hate the SD 625, It’s like having your favorite dish everyday. It gets stale!

      They are like Nokia old times. Making hundreds models of phones not known for who. They should think how it ended for Nokia.
