Xiaomi will launch the Redmi Note 6 Pro smartphone at an event in New Delhi today. As the name suggests, the smartphone will take over the mantle from the hugely-popular Redmi Note 5 Pro, which has been the segment leader ever since it was launched in India earlier this year.
Now, being a mid-range device, it’s quite obvious that Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro will be priced in the same range as its predecessor. However, just hours before the smartphone goes official, some information has surfaced online regarding its price.
If the folks at MySmartPrice are to be believed, Xiaomi’s soon-to-be-launched mid-ranger will carry a price tag of Rs 13,999. This has been claimed to be the price of the base configuration, which will most likely come with 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. Interestingly, the entry-level model of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage is also priced at Rs 13,999. This is after Xiaomi recently slashed the price of the smartphone by Rs 1,000. Going by that, we can assume that the 6GB RAM/64GB internal storage version of the new Redmi Note 6 Pro will most likely cost Rs 15,999.
Also, when the Redmi Note 6 Pro becomes official, it’s quite possible that Xiaomi will (eventually) discontinue the Redmi Note 5 Pro.

As far as the specifications are concerned, we already know everything about the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro, since the smartphone has already been available in other regions. Being an incremental upgrade, its spec sheet is almost identical to Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. However, two notable changes include a notched display, and twin-lens selfie camera system at the front.
