Xiaomi will launch the Redmi 6 next week. The new phone will succeed the 6-month old Redmi 5. While that may seem early, that has been the least concern for fans of the brand, instead, the phone’s design (read notch) has not been well received.
A new live photo of the Redmi 6 has leaked online and it shows the phone in a new color variant which kind of looks better than the first leaked photo.
Unlike the first live photo (and TENAA images) we have seen of the Redmi 6 which shows the device with white front bezels, this new variant has black bezels. The notch is still visible but the dark bezels sort of makes it look better.
The notch is home to the earpiece, a camera, and sensors and is much smaller than that of the Mi 8 series. Though the lower bezel isn’t as thin. The back of the phone has a rose-gold finish with vertical dual cameras, a fingerprint scanner, and antenna lines at the top and bottom.
The Redmi 6 will come with a 5.84-inch FHD+ screen, a 3900mAh (4000mAh) battery, a 12MP primary camera on the rear, and a 5MP selfie camera. It will be powered by an unspecified 2.0GHz octa-core processor with 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB RAM variants.
Following its launch next week, the phone will launch outside China as the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite.
What do you think of this color variant? Better looking or not?
