In the previous week, a couple of leaked photos of a mysterious notch enabled Xiaomi phone. The rumor mill had speculated that it could be a prototype of the upcoming Redmi 6 smartphone. The same phone with full specifications and images seems to have surfaced on the website of China’s TENAA authority.
The TENAA listing reveals that the new Xiaomi phone with model number M1805D1SE measures 149.33 x 71.68 x 75mm and it weighs 178 grams. The TENAA images suggest that the handset could be sporting a metallic rear. It is expected to arrive in multiple colors like black, rose gold, gold, white, blue, red, pink, gray and silver.
The notched display of the M1805D1SE Xiaomi phone measures 5.84 inches. It carries support for 2280 x 1080 pixels of FHD+ resolution. Hence, the screen will be offering an aspect ratio of 19:9. The handset will receive power from 3,900mAh battery.
An octa-core processor that clocks at 2.0 GHz will be present under the hood of the rumored Xiaomi Redmi 6. Could it be yet another Xiaomi phone with Snapdragon 625 chipset onboard? It is advisable to wait for further reports to confirm on its SoC.
The alleged Redmi 6 will be available in RAM variants like 2 GB, 3 GB and 4 GB and storage models like 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. For more storage, it will feature a microSD card slot.
The handset will arrive preinstalled with Android 8.1 Oreo. The dual camera setup residing on its back will include 12-megapixel as its primary sensor. Its secondary sensor is not listed on TENAA. For snapping selfies, the smartphone will be equipped with a 5-megapixel front camera.
The TENAA images shows that the device features a slightly thick chin below the elongated display. Its side bezels are not very thin. The notch seems to be housing a selfie camera, an earpiece and some other sensor. Its rear-view reveals that this phone continues to sport the same 3-stage design that Xiaomi has used on predecessor Redmi phones.
The top-left corner of the purported Redmi 6 has the vertical dual camera setup while the fingerprint scanner is positioned at the center of the upper portion of the back panel. The top edge of the phone seems to be housing a 3.5mm audio jack. The volume rocker along with power key are placed on the right edge of the phone. Shown below are the leaked images of what appears to be a prototype of the same phone.
It seems that Xiaomi is prepping to introduce the Redmi 6 series in China as the alleged Redmi 6A phone and its variants were recently spotted on TENAA with full screen design. There is no confirmation on whether the Redmi 6 series will be introduced at Xiaomi’s upcoming annual product launch event that is scheduled to take place on May 31.
