The Redmi 6 Pro features a 5.84” display with a Full HD+ (2280 x 1080) resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio.

Xiaomi’s love for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 continues as it powers the phone and is clocked at 2.00 GHz and is an octa-core chip. On the back there is a pair of cameras, the main one being a 12MP (f/2.2) shooter and the second one being a 5MP unit. It features things like EIS and PDAF to improve the overall shooting experience. The selfie shooter is a 5MP unit and cameras on both the sides feature portrait mode thanks to AI. (image-gizmochina)
All this is backed up by a 4000mAh battery and it runs on MIUI 9 based on Android 8.1. The Redmi 6 Pro will be available in these configurations - 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM for 999 CNY, 4GB RAM and 32GB ROM for 1199 CNY as well as 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM for 1299 CNY.
Mi Pad 4
Before talking about the specifications lets appreciate the fact that Xiaomi still hasn’t given up on tablets. We all know that tablet sales have been declining rapidly and the only series doing fine business is the iPad.
The Mi Pad 4 comes with an 8” Full HD (1920x1200) display with rounded corners. Beneath the screen, it is powered by the mighty midrange chip, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 which is clocked at 2.2GHz. On the back, it includes a 13MP camera and the selfie snapper is a 5MP unit which is also capable of face unlocking. (image-gsmarena)
All this is powered by a 6000mAh battery and it runs MIUI 9 based on Android 8.1. The Mi Pad 4 will be available in 2 variants – WiFi only which one comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM for 1099 CNY as well as 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM for 1399 CNY. The LTE variant will be available for 1499 CNY and comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM. The Mi Pad 4 will be available in gold and black colour options later in June. (image-compareraja)
Both these devices are very compelling and we can only hope that Xiaomi brings these devices to India. Let’s hope that Xiaomi does bring them and price them aggressively as they always have. (coverimage-gizmochina)
