After numerous leaks, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is official. But not quite in the way everyone would have hoped for. Instead of a proper launch, the smartphone was made official via the Thai forum on Xiaomi’s mi.com.
In line with the leaks we have come across before, the Redmi Note 6 Pro is indeed the first Xiaomi device to boast four cameras. At the back the setup includes a combination of 12-megapixel primary sensor, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. On paper they may seem the same as the Redmi Note 5 Pro, but there are improvements. The sensors now boast larger pixels (1.4µm), brighter aperture (f/1.9), and Dual Pixel autofocus.
Up front, there are two sensors hidden in the display notch. There is a 20-megapixel primary sensor (1.8µm, f/2.0) accompanied by a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Needless to say, both sets of cameras are backed Artificial Intelligence.
