We think that most fans of Xiaomi company don’t like notches. So, we are waiting full bezel-less or maybe small panel on the top. As for the rest, the design of Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro will not have any changes. The phone will come with Full View display, the corner will be rounded, while the back panel will be made from metal.
The antenna lines will be hidden under plastic inserts from below and from above. As usual, there will be dual camera, flashlight and fingerprint reader.
The dimensions of Redmi Note 6 Pro will slightly decrease due to the increased screen / front panel ratio. Most likely, the phone will become easier and more convenient to use.

The main problem of this panel is a weak margin of maximum brightness and decent power consumption.

Snapdragon 670 is the first chipset in the series that runs on Kryo 360 cores. The processor itself is built on two ARM Cortex-A75 cores with a frequency of 2.0 GHz and six energy efficient Cortex-A55 at 1.7 GHz. Snapdragon 670 contains graphics Adreno 615, exceeding the 25% performance Adreno 512 of Snapdragon 660. The processor is really worth it.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro will have 3GB of RAM and 32/64GB of internal memory. In benchmarks, such as Antutu, Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro will score about 150 000 points. In short, the performance is great, and you play any games and run any apps.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro will receive dual camera of 13MP f/2.0 + 8MP, f/2.0, pixel 1.5 microns + 1.12 microns, bokeh effect, video recording in Full HD @ 30 fps, electronic stabilization.
