Xiaomi is all set to launch its upcoming smartphone in its entry-level Redmi series. On June 12, at a launch event, the China-based company will be launching its sixth-generation Redmi smartphone — Xiaomi Redmi 6.
Today, Xiaomi’s president Lin Bin has shared a poster of the Redmi 6 smartphone which reveals the front side of the phone, giving us a look at the phone’s design and what to expect from it. However, the image is similar to the one that recently appeared on TENAA, which is said to be of Redmi 6A.
Contrary to the previous reports, the newly released poster of the Redmi 6 reveals that it will come with a full-screen display but without a notch on top, which almost every smartphone manufacturer is embracing nowadays. However, the display is surrounded by thick bezels from all sides.
The recent TENNA listing of a phone with same design revealed that the smartphone will have a 5.45-inch HD+ display with screen resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio.
Further, the photo reveals that the smartphone will come with a single camera on the front side along with an LED flash for brighter selfies. The volume rocker and the power button are placed on the right side of the phone. We are expecting that the phone will have a fingerprint sensor placed on the back panel and the phone is also expected to come with Face Unlock feature.
The previously released poster related to the smartphone hinted that the Redmi 6 will come powered by MediaTek’s Helio P22 processor. The chipset comes with eight Cortex A53 cores clocked at 2.0GHz and the company claims that it is one of the first chipmakers to bring 12nm processors to the budget segment. The Helio P22 also comes with Mediatek’s Neuropilot tech which has support for TensorFlow, TF Lite, Caffe, and Caffe2. It can select the best available AI resource for developer efficiency.
The Redmi 6 is also expected to come with a dual camera setup on the back, stacked horizontally along with an LED flash on the top-left corner. The primary sensor in the dual camera setup is said to be of 12-megapixel. The phone will be running Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box, possibly with the latest MIUI 10 on top.
It is speculated that Xiaomi will be launching the Redmi 6A and Redmi 6 Pro/Plus smartphones alongside the Redmi 6 on June 12.
