Xiaomi Redmi 6 Specifications, Features and Price

Xiaomi Redmi 6 Specifications, Features and Price

Following the launch of flagship Mi 8 trio, Xiaomi is banging the door with the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A, but this time around, they are entry level devices.

The Xiaomi Redmi 6 is built around a 5.45-inch HD+ (720 x 1440) IPS display with contemporary 18:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by the 12nm MediaTek Helio P22 chip with 2GHz octa-core CPU and 3,000 mAh battery. The capacity is lower than the 3,300mAh pack in the Redmi 5, however, due to the vastly more efficient chipset and smaller screen it should last quite a lot longer.

The Redmi 6 will be available in two memory configurations – either 3GB of RAM with 32GB of flash storage or 4GB + 64GB. Either way, you get a microSD card slot for further storage expansion.

The phone offers dual back cameras (12MP + 5MP) and a 5MP selfie snapper on the front.

The Xiaomi Redmi 6’s key feature is the AI-aided face unlock. Once you lift up the phone, the screen lights up and scans your face making the whole unlocking process a bit faster and more convenient. If you prefer the fingerprint unlock, however, the Redmi 6 carries a reader on the back.

Speaking of AI, it’s an essential part of the whole MIUI 10 software that powers the Redmi 6 and will help with performance and camera stills.
