Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro Goes On Sale Before Official Launch
A Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro device is already on sale, even before the device has been announced by the company. The device is on sale on AliExpress and is listed along with full specifications and images. This is a global version which will support over 70 languages and comes with Google Services and OTA updates.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is on sale with a Snapdragon 636 chipset. It is listed as a 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage version and has a microSD port. It has a 6.26 inch display and a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. The listing also confirms the fact that there are four cameras on the device.
The device has a 12 MP + 5 MP primary camera and a 20 MP + 2 MP front camera. The device runs on Android Oreo with MIUI 9. It has a 4,000 mAh battery and a micro USB port.
Legit Or Not?
While most of the specifications from the listing are the same as earlier leaks and reports, a few things do not fall into place. The listing claims a Snapdragon 636 SoC for the device. This is inconsistent to earlier reports which said the device will have a Snapdragon 660 chipset. This seems highly unlikely as the Redmi Note 5 Pro also used the Snapdragon 636. The upgraded version of the device is bound to use a better chipset.
Apart from this, the listing also places the display resolution at 2160 x 1080 pixels. The device claims to have an 19:9 aspect ratio. If that’s the case, the resolution should be 2280 x 1080 pixels. These two points do make us question the credibility of the device which is being sold.
The device is available in four colours which are Black, Blue, Rose Gold, and Red and costs $193. The website also shows that the device is not available for delivery to India.
