Xiaomi Redmi 6 overview

The Xiaomi Redmi 6 is an entry-level phone and should be popular among consumers looking for budget phones. Even with its low price tag, it offers all the basic must-have features in 2018. The phone comes with a 5.45″ IPS LCD display with HD+ (1440 x 720) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. The Redmi 6 packs a dual camera setup at the back. The setup consists of a 12 MP lens with PDAF, and a 5 MP depth sensor; both with f/2.2 aperture. The front camera is a single 5 MP lens. Both the cameras are capable of capturing 1080p videos at 30 fps.

Under the hood, an entry level 2.0 GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 chipset powers the device. Internationally, the phone comes in 3 GB or 4 GB RAM  choices, but here in Nepal, we only get the 3 GB RAM variant. However, there are options for storage. You can choose from either a 32 GB variant or a 64 GB variant. However, there is a microSD card slot in it that enables you to expand your storage up to 256 GB. It packs a 3000 mAh battery, which might be small, but for an entry-level phone, it should be enough. Also, the phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo topped with MIUI 9 on top.

For an entry-level phone, the specs are certainly good enough. Pricing for the Redmi 6 is set as Rs.18499 for the 64 GB storage variant, while the 32 GB variant costs Rs.16499.
