Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro was launched in India back in February this year and has since seen blockbuster sales with users rushing to grab a unit of this mid-ranger in the numerous flash sales and open sales since launch. However, with just about 6 months after launch, the Redmi Note 5 Pro is set to get a successor in the form of the Redmi Note 6 Pro. The first-ever leak for the upcoming handset is out with details about the pricing and memory/ storage configurations. Let’s get into what all we know about the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro.
Reputed smartphone tipster Roland Quandt took to Twitter on Tuesday to claim that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro will soon be a reality. Quandt states that the smartphone will be made available in Black, Blue, and Gold colour options. It will be sold in 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage and 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage models in Europe, but might get a 6GB RAM variant as well in other markets like India and China.
As far as pricing is concerned, he expects the phone to be priced between EUR 200-250 (roughly between Rs. 16,500 and Rs. 20,600), with cheaper pricing in other markets. The cheaper price tag could make its way to India, where the current-gen Redmi Note 5 Pro starts at just Rs. 14,999. He also claims that more colour variants might be launched outside of the European market.
Other than that, no design elements, features, or specifications have been leaked yet. However, the rumour mill will expectedly be on high alert after this piece of information and we might spot the Redmi Note 6 Pro on benchmarking or certification portals in the coming weeks. Launch date for the handset is currently unknown.
To recall, the Redmi Note 5 Pro sports a 5.99-inch full-HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC, coupled with up to 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It sports a vertically stacked dual rear camera setup, and has a 4,000mAh battery under the hood.
