Xiaomi is all set to launch the new Redmi Note 6 Pro in India, and the event is set to take place on November 22 at 12:00PM in New Delhi. The company has already revealed that the smartphone will be exclusively sold via Flipkart starting November 23. Successor to the Redmi Note 5 Pro, the new Xiaomi smartphone brings some key changes in terms of software, refined design, improved cameras, among others.
I got a chance to test the smartphone ahead of the launch, and we have already shared our first impressions. In the past few days, I also clicked a few photos on the smartphone in different lighting conditions, and ran a few benchmarks to see how it performs. As I am still testing the smartphone, I will reserve my judgement on the cameras till the full review. In the meanwhile, here’s a glimpse at the camera samples and benchmark scores.
Watch: Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 + 5 Pro Review
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro camera samples
Just like the Redmi Note 5 Pro, the Note 6 Pro also comes with the same dual-camera setup at the back – featuring a 12-megapixel primary sensor, paired with a 5-megapixel secondary depth sensor. The main sensor now has larger size of 1.4micron pixel, and comes with dual pixel auto-focus for faster focusing. It also has a wider aperture of f/1.9, compared to f/2.2 on the Redmi Note 5 Pro.
With wider aperture and larger pixel size, the camera should be able to click better photos, even in low-light. Below are some sample shots.
Up front, you get a dual-camera setup comprising of a 20-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel depth sensor for adding DSLR-like bokeh effects. There is also AI scene detection, and AI portrait selfie mode that enhances the way you look in your selfies.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro benchmark test results
To test the performance on the Redmi Note 6 Pro, we put it through the paces on benchmarking apps like PCMark, 3D Mark to check the graphics performance, GeekBench and Antutu to check the overall performance.
On AnTuTu, the Redmi Note 6 Pro logged a score of 115,718. On Geekbench, the device logged a score of 1,329 in single-core test, and 4,898 in multi-core test.
In case of 3D Mark, we got a score of 954 in Sling Shot Extreme (OpenGL) test, whereas Sling Shot Extreme (Vulkan) logged a score of 757. Lastly, we also ran PCMark test, and the device logged Work 2.0 performance score of 5,714.
These are initial benchmark test results, but ultimately the real-life performance is what matters the most. I will soon be sharing my full review of the Redmi Note 6 Pro covering all aspects such as design, display, camera performance, battery life and much more, so stay tuned for that.
