Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is the phone that many people had been waiting for and here is one of the most awaited phones. The phone brings many great features along with the old trust of Xiaomi. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s dive in to see what we are getting new with this new Xiaomi device. Also, how it is different from Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro.
One of the most dramatic changes in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is the display of the phone. Now the phone comes with a new 6.26-inch display along with the trendy notch design. This way, the display covers most of the front panel. Also, it looks a lot different from the previous generation Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro because of its display. If a person ever decides to upgrade, then the display would be one of the highlighting aspects that he/she would have to consider before upgrading.
The dimensions of the phone are also something that you should consider. Now the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is 157.9 mm tall while Redmi Note 5 Pro was 158.6 mm tall. So, the notch design seems to be doing well in making the device a bit shorter than its previous generation. You must keep in mind that Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is having a massive 6.26-inch display and is still a bit shorter than Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. So, it can be great for many people to upgrade if they want a big display phone. Also, the new device is now having 81.1% screen to body ratio while Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro had 77.3%
The camera on the phone is still one of the great features of the phone. Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro now comes with a slightly updated camera sensor. It now has 12 MP with f1.9 aperture and dual-pixel PDAF with 5 MP depth sensor with f2.2 aperture. The previous generation Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro came with the primary sensor of 12 MP with f2.2 aperture PDAF and 5 MP f2.0 depth sensor which now has been slightly updated.
Now talking about the selfie camera, with Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro you would be getting dual selfie cameras for much realistic bokeh effect pictures. Previously we had just a single camera on Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro as the selfie camera, but now the story has changed. Now there is nearly the same 20 MP camera with f2.0 aperture, but there is a new 2 MP f2.2 sensor for fantabulous depth effects in selfies.
The processor of the phone is also just the same as Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. You are getting here the same Snapdragon 636 chipset that is still a great and powerful processor. Xiaomi has always preferred this strategy of providing the chipset that it has already used in its past devices. This way, it can be easy for developers to support the development of more devices without making many changes in the architecture of software updates.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro comes pre-installed with Android Oreo, which is a good thing. Although many devices have started to receive the Android Pie update, Redmi Note 6 Pro still comes with Android Oreo. You must also know that Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is running on Xiaomi’s custom MIUI skin. If you want a stock Android experience, then you should check Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro which comes with stock Android.
The battery of Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is not any different from Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. You are still getting that massive 4000 mAh battery with Redmi Note 6 Pro. So, you should not expect anything significant here. You should be happy because you are still getting that amazing battery backup of 1.5 days to 2 days easily.
Storage is also a factor that will attract many people to this phone. The phone now comes with two storage options of 64 GB as well as 32 GB. Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro had only one storage option of 64 GB which was a bit inconvenient for many. Now people would have two choices at least to buy the most pocket-friendly model for them.
What is the Redmi Note 6 Pro Price in India?

So, should you upgrade to the new Redmi Note 6 Pro?
You should upgrade if you have Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 (Xiaomi Redmi 5 plus), Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Xiaomi Redmi 5, Xiaomi Redmi 5A, or any older mobile. If you have Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, then you may wait a bit more for Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 pro that has much time to launch.
