Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is the next big bet from the Chinese smartphone maker in the budget segment and the biggest highlight of the Redmi Note 6 Pro are its quad cameras (dual cameras on both sides). This means that Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro has become the first smartphone from the company to come with dual cameras both at the front and back. Moreover, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is the successor of the popular Redmi Note 5 Pro and comes with a host of upgrades such as a bigger display, MIUI 10 out of the box and more.
While the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro has been launched in Indonesia with prices starting from IDR 28,99,000 (roughly Rs. 14,500) for the 3GB RAM with 32GB storage version with the 4GB RAM with 64GB storage version being priced at 32,99,000 (roughly Rs. 16,500), the smartphone will be available in Black, Blue, and Rose Gold colour options.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro India launch and expected price in India
Coming to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro India launch, there has been no official word from the company, however, with the Redmi Note 5 Pro still being a popular smartphone in India, Xiaomi is highly likely to launch its successor soon. It could also be a good time for Xiaomi to come with segment-leading features in the budget category since the competition has increased multifold.
That said, the Redmi Note 5 Pro was launched in India in February 2018 and Xiaomi might launch the Redmi Note 6 Pro same time next year. However, it is highly unlikely to happen. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro has already been unveiled and by February, its competitors could come up with something better in the same segment, thus, Xiaomi has to introduce its new budget smartphone soon, in India.
There have also been reports that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro India launch might happen this month itself and if this happens, the device will also get a boost in sales due to the festive season.
This brings us to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro price in India. Xiaomi is expected to price its new smartphone in the sub-Rs. 20,000 segment but it already has the Poco F1 with flagship processor in India which is priced near the Rs. 20,000 mark. On the other hand, the Mi A2 was recently launched in India with a price tag of Rs. 16,999 and it is also doing well in terms of sales. This hints towards the fact that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro price in India will be closer to the Rs. 15,000-mark in India but it won’t be an easy task since the smartphone comes with a lot of class-leading features. Moreover, the company might have to go with a similar pricing as that of the Redmi Note 5 Pro.
