Xiaomi India will launch its next and much awaited Note-series phone, the Redmi Note 6 Pro, in India on November 22. Initially, we had expected the Indian variant to include a more powerful chipset (Snapdragon 660 or 675), but industry sources confirm that specifications will be the same as that of the global variant.
In India, Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro will run MIUI 10 out of the box and will be available in 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM (LPDDR4X) variants, each with 64GB internal storage. The Phone will exclusively retail on Flipkart in India. The Redmi Note 6 Pro first sale will be held on November 23.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro Price In India (Expected)

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro Features
Xiaomi’s Redmi Note phones have traditionally offered the best available chipset in their classes. I guess the tradition breaks this year as the Realme 2 Pro offers better SD 660 and in all likelihood will remain cheaper than the Redmi Note 6 Pro. Also, the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 is expected to launch with Snapdragon 660 very soon.
Anyways, that doesn’t necessarily make these phones better than the new Note.
The Redmi Note 6 Pro has a lot to look forward to including the latest MIUI 10 software, IR blaster, a beefy 4000mAh battery, and dual front and rear cameras.
Keeping up with the current trends, the 6.26-inch FHD+ IPS LCD display will flaunt a wide notch.
In terms of photography, the Redmi Note 5 Pro maintained its lead in the affordable segment throughout 2018, and the Redmi Note 6 Pro could bring in further refinements. On the face of it, there is an extra depth sensor on the front which could result in improved selfie portraits.
We will be reviewing the handset soon and will be back with more details.
