Xiaomi Redmi 6: All you need to know
Recent reports have indicated that the Xiaomi Redmi 6 will be coming in three variants—one low-end Redmi 6A, generic Redmi 6 and a top-end Redmi 6 Plus (or Pro).
The Redmi 6 Plus is expected to come with Apple iPhone X-inspired design. It is said to feature a 5.84-inch full HD+ screen with 19:9 aspect ratio. It will also have a notch on top of the display, which will house a 5MP sensor and most probably boast face recognition feature.
Inside, it is expected to come with MediaTek Helio P60 (& Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 outside China), 3GB/4GB/6GB RAM, 32GB/64GB/128GB storage, dual camera (12MP+5MP) and a 4,000mAh battery, which will be enough to keep the phone running for one day and a half under mixed usage.
On the other hand, the standard Redmi 6 is said to come with 5.45-inch HD+ (1440x720p) screen with 18:9 aspect ratio, 2GB/3GB/4GB RAM, 16GB/32GB /64GB storage, Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core, a dual-camera (12MP+5MP) and a 3,000mAh cell for full-day battery life.
The Redmi 6A is said to have the same design 6 and most of the key internal hardware of the Redmi 6 but differ in two aspects. It will have just a single primary snapper on the back and will miss out the fingerprint sensor.
