We had seen some flashes and leaks regarding the upcoming new phone from Xiaomi, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro. And now, it has been unveiled. Officially, or unofficially, we don’t know, but it was already available on AliExpress before this unveiling. But now, you can also see Xiaomi’s Online Store selling the phone there. However, Xiaomi’s own official website doesn’t have any such listings. It is pretty complicated.
Besides that, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is listed by plenty of sellers now. It was officially seen in Xiaomi’s Thai Forum first, but now, it’s there all over. And with this, the rumors about this phone having a variant with 6 GB RAM is debunked. This phone still comes in two versions, yes, but in the same manner as the Redmi 5 Pro. A 3 GB RAM / 32 GB storage and a 4 GB RAM / 64 GB variant.
Other specs still hold true, though. The same chipset of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, the Snapdragon 636 powers the phone still. The display is a 6.26″ of Full HD+ resolution (1080 x 2280) with an 86% screen to body ratio. This phone has a quad-camera setup, the company’s first phone to feature one. The rear dual camera setup consists of a 12 MP camera with f/1.9 aperture and a 5 MP depth sensor, whereas the front consists of a 20 MP lens with a 2 MP depth sensor. Additional features in the camera include AI Portrait 2.0 and AI scene recognition, in the front and back camera respectively. It also packs a 4000 mAh of battery.

The phone is still available in four colors – Red, Rose Gold, Black and Blue. Shipping time varies according to the sellers, ranging from 20 days to 60. This could be a red flag, but with so many sellers selling it, I guess, we don’t have to worry anymore. Also, with Xiaomi’s Thai Forum making it official on their Facebook Page, it is closer to being authentic now.
Now, why Xiaomi’s doing this, we don’t know. Launching the phone in a not-so-well-known forum and not worldwide, even though the sellers are claiming it to be the global version. Plus, it is still early for the Redmi Note 6 Pro to be coming out, isn’t it? The Redmi Note 5 Pro only came in February.
And all of this creates the question “Will it be available to the rest of the world?” It should, because, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, or the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 AI in Nepal, was a very popular. So, let us wait and see what happens. For now, the phone is available on Ali Express through various sellers and various prices. Prices start from some $195 all the way to $239 depending on the sellers and addition of accessories.
