In terms of design, the phone comes with an aluminum unibody arc design with rounded corners. The upper and lower parts are made of plastic to provide a better antenna signal transmission. The phone still has a 3.5mm headphone jack but it still comes with a micro USB port instead of the new USB Type-C port.
Coming to the phone’s specifications, the Redmi Note 6 Pro features a 6.26-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD display with a 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch on top. Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 636 processor which uses the latest Kryo microarchitecture.
The phone comes in two models based on the memory configuration — 3GB RAM with 32GB of internal storage and 4GB RAM with 64GB of internal storage. As said, the smartphone comes with four cameras — dual camera setup on the front and a similar setup on the back.
There’s a 12-megapixel with Dual Pixel autofocus and f/1.9 aperture, and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor for depth sensing. It has EIS, AI Scene Detection that recognizes 27 scenes, all-new AI Portrait 2.0, adjustable bokeh level and six new bokeh effects, among others. On the front side, it comes equipped with a 20-megapixel and 2-megapixel dual camera sensors with AI Beautify, Portrait Mode, and Face Unlock feature.
The phone runs Android Oreo operating system out-of-the-box with the company’s own MIUI custom interface on top. It comes with the usual set of connectivity options and is fuelled by a 4,000mAh battery with fast charging support, which the company claims can offer 12 days on standby.
