Company Xiaomi held an official presentation, which showed two new devices – a smartphone Redmi 6 Pro and a tablet Mi Pad 4. Actually, information about the characteristics and design of new products appeared a little earlier than this event, so there was no surprise effect. On the other hand, Xiaomi has announced quite interesting gadgets that will clearly find its audience due to its low cost and high performance

Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro

First, we were shown a smartphone Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro, which is the direct successor of Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A. This is an improved version, which you can guess on the prefix “Pro” in the title. However, the main highlight of the device is not its performance, but the “fringe” at the top of the screen, just like the iPhone X. This is the debut of this design solution in the Redmi 6 line, previously the manufacturer did not dare to such bold experiments. Of the interesting elements of the body, I would like to note the main camera – it is located vertically, very similar to the similar element you yourself know which smartphone.

The characteristics of Redmi 6 Pro also look pretty attractive, although we found nothing unusual. For the performance of the device is taken system-on-chip Snapdragon 625 from Qualcomm. The processor is built on eight cores of Cortex-A53 with a clock speed of up to 2.0 HZ. For the graphics meets Adreno 506, but the built-in and random-access memory are presented in several versions. The younger version of the smartphone boasts 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory for storing personal content, while the older one has 4 GB of RAM and 32/64 GB of storage. It is possible to install a microSD memory card up to 256 GB.

Worthy characteristics of the product abound. For example, the display with a diagonal of 5.84 inches with a resolution of 2280×1080 (aspect ratio of 19: 9) looks very attractive. You can unlock the smartphone both with the help of a fingerprint scanner on the back panel and on the analog Face ID. This all works on the operating system Android 8.1 Oreo, on top of which the firmware MIUI is installed

The start of sales of Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro is scheduled for June 26, a preliminary order can be issued now. The cost of new items in the minimum configuration (3/32 GB) is about $ 156. The option for 4/32 GB is given for $ 184, and 4/64 GB for $ 199. It should be noted that this is the cost for the local market in China, prices for other regions have not yet been called.
