Redmi Note 6 and Redmi 6 Plus displays listed on online store

It has been reported that Xiaomi is working on the Redmi Note 6, a successor to the Redmi Note 5. The phone is supposed to be announced later this year and will join the already released Redmi 6A, Redmi 6, and Redmi 6 Pro. Ahead of the release, a live photo of the phone’s display assembly has leaked online.

The image source is a store on the online shopping site, AliExpress. The images uploaded show the screen has a small notch at the top, about the same size as that of the Redmi 6 Pro. The notch has three cut-outs for the sensor, earpiece, and front-facing camera.

The item description says the screen is 6.18” in size and has a resolution of 1080 x 2246. The display is also the LCD type which shouldn’t be a surprise since the Redmi series are supposed to be affordable. However, the price of the screen isn’t that cheap as the seller has slapped a $60 (excluding shipping) price tag on it. However, an on-going promotion will let you pick it up for $56.40.

While doing some digging around on the store, we stumbled upon the display of another unreleased phone – the Redmi 6 Plus. Yes, it appears there is going to be a Redmi 6 Plus and its screen is also listed for sale by the same seller. This listing is the first time we are hearing about the device.

According to the item description, the Redmi 6 Plus’ screen is 5.99-inches with a 1080 x 2160 resolution just like that of the Redmi 5 Plus (Redmi Note 5 in India) but the screen size is where the similarities end. The photo of the display assembly provided by the seller shows it has a notch and it is much bigger than that of the Redmi Note 6. It also has five cut-outs in total.

Two of the cut-outs seem to be for cameras which means it will pack dual front-facing cameras, one is for the speaker, another for the sensors and the last one is most likely for an LED flash. The Redmi 5 Plus has a single front-facing camera and a LED flash, so this is definitely a big upgrade if this listing is genuine. The price for the screen is $52 but it can be purchased for $48.88 for a limited time.

The listings may be genuine but the only errors we have spotted are the resolutions of the two displays. At least we are quite sure the Redmi 6 Plus can’t have that resolution with that notch.

Hopefully, more information about both devices will surface in the coming weeks.
