Yesterday, when Xiaomi had claimed on Weibo that it would be announcing something new today. Since then, netizens started speculating that the company may announce the arrival of Xiaomi Redmi 6 series. Today, the Chinese manufacturer has released an official poster on Weibo to confirm that it will indeed announce the Redmi 6 (or Redmi 6 series) on June 12.
Just before Xiaomi’s May 31 Shenzhen event that unveiled the Mi 8 series, Mi Band 3 and MIUI 10, a mid-range phone from the company having a model number of M1805D1SE had bagged certification from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (CMIIT). Hence, Xiaomi fans were expecting that the M1805D1SE smartphone may also get unveiled on May 31, but it did not happen so. It seems that the M1805D1SE that was recently certified could be the Redmi 6 smartphone.
The above shown launch poster only confirms the June 12 launch date for Xiaomi Redmi 6. However, it does not reveal how many smartphones will be announced on the said date. It is speculated that the Redmi 6A and Redmi 6 Pro/Plus may also get unleashed alongside the Redmi 6 on June 12.
The TENAA listing of the M1805D1SE has revealed that it will be sporting a notched display. It includes a 5.84-inch display that offers Full HD+ resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels along with an aspect ratio of 19:9. It is driven by an octa-core processor that has a processing speed of 2.0 GHz. It could be the Snapdragon 625 SoC.
The alleged Redmi 6 is expected to arrive in variants like 16 GB storage + 2 GB RAM, 32 GB storage + 3 GB RAM and 64 GB storage + 4 GB RAM. It houses a 3,900mAh battery. The vertical dual camera setup lying on its rear side has a primary sensor of 12-megapixel. The handset features a selfie camera of 5-megapixel. A fingerprint scanner is placed on the backside of the phone. The TENAA images suggest that the alleged Redmi 6 has a metallic rear, but the upper and lower portion that houses the antenna bands could be made out of plastic.
