(May 28th, 2018)

Xiaomi is gearing up for the launch of its 2018 flagship smartphone on May 31st in China. On the same day, the company will also launch MiBand 3 along with several other products from its subsidiaries. From the last few days, there are leaks about the Redmi 6 smartphones. The TENAA listing of the device with the model number M1804C3CE is now updated with complete specifications. As of now, there is no information if the company will be unveiling these new budget smartphones alongside the Mi 8 or not.

Talking about the specifications, the Redmi 6 will be coming with a 5.84-inch Full HD+ (2280 × 1080 pixels) display with 19:9 aspect ratio. Till date, we have budget smartphones coming only with an 18:9 display. However, the thick bezels on all the four sides make the device look ugly. Under the hood is an unspecified octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz. We expect it to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor coupled with Adreno 506 GPU.

The device will be available 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB RAM variants with 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB of internal storage respectively. It will also come with a MicroSD card slot for expanding up to 256GB. The Redmi 6 runs on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo-based MIUI out of the box. Coming to the camera department, the Redmi 6 will be offering 12MP dual rear cameras and a 5MP single front camera. On the design front, the upcoming Redmi 6 looks similar to the Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, IR Blaster, 3.5mm audio jack, and a MicroUSB 2.0 port. There is also a circular fingerprint placed on the rear of the device. It is backed by a 3,900mAh non-removable battery and lacks fast charging support. While the power button and volume rocker are placed on the right edge, the SIM card can be found on the left edge. There is also another variant of Redmi 6 which comes without the fingerprint sensor.

Latest: Xiaomi Redmi 6 Confirmed to Launch on June 12th in China

Xiaomi is expected to soon launch the Redmi 6 smartphones in China. A few Mi-branded budget smartphones are even spotted on TENAA with notch display. Today, the company has officially confirmed to launch the Redmi 6 smartphones on June 12th in Beijing, China. Just like the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus, the company might unveil the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6 Plus smartphones on the launch day.

Looking at the TENAA listings, both the devices will be coming with the similar design featuring notch display 0n the front and dual cameras on the rear. However, the Redmi 6 might miss the fingerprint sensor in order to launch it at an aggressive price. As of now, there is no official confirmation about these specifications. We hope not to see the same old Snapdragon 625 processor, which the company has been using in its budget devices from the last couple of years.

Even with the notch on the top, the devices will be offering relatively bigger bezels on the top and bottom of the display. The dual cameras on this device are vertically stacked on the top left corner. We also don’t expect the company to launch Redmi 6 and Redmi 6 Plus with the latest MIUI 10 out of the box. The Redmi 6 Plus is also rumored to launch as Mi A2 Lite in other Asian markets. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!
