It has been a great year so far for the Chinese company, Xiaomi. It showed the world that it has come to stay and dominate with its initial public offering earlier last month. It has also released a series of smartphones for different market segments which are performing excellently.
The news making round is that the Chinese giant is set to release yet another Redmi smartphone series just three months after the global unveiling of the Redmi 5 lineup. There are indications that this new series is the successor to the Redmi 5 line-up, Redmi 6.
In recent weeks, the Chinese certification sheet (TENAA) of different variants of the Redmi 6 or Redmi 6A has shown up online, and now the TENAA certification of a new variant which may be the “Pro” or “Plus” version of the Redmi 6 has surfaced. Along with the TENAA certification are images of the front panel renders.
The new Redmi 6 variant was spotted on TENAA with the model number M1805D1SE. The new variant is slightly bigger than the Redmi 6 and will be sporting a notch with a vertically stacked dual rear camera setup.
The TENAA listing revealed that the Redmi 6 Plus or Pro will feature a 5.84-inch Full-HD+ display with an unknown SoC clocked at 2GHz. It is highly possible that the chipset may be a Snapdragon 660 or the new MediaTek Helio P60 processor. Also, it will be available in three RAM variants – 2GB of RAM/16GB, 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB of internal memory.
The smartphone may possibly run on Android 8.1 Oreo with the new Xiaomi’s MIUI 10. The Redmi 6 Plus or Redmi 6 Pro will probably feature a dual front camera (12MP + 5MP). Plus, it is expected to be powered by a huge 4,000mAh battery.
There are different colour options available for the smartphone – Black, Rose Gold, Champagne Gold, White, Blue, Red, Pink, Gray, and Silver.
