Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has presented novelties: a smartphone and a tablet in an affordable price range.
The Redmi 6 Pro phone practically does not differ from the Redmi 5 Plus model, and the Mi Pad 4 tablet can connect to the Internet without Wi-Fi.
Match up to iPhone
The manufacturer continues to expand the lineup of the budget series of Redmi smartphones. The entire line is characterized by a memorable design and fairly good performance. The new Redmi 6 Pro, unlike the previous versions 6 and 6A, received a characteristic cutout like the iPhone X, a larger display, a battery of good capacity and a Qualcomm chipset.
The current fashion, which is forcing major manufacturers to add a protrusion at the top of the smartphone body, has now reached the Xiaomi Redmi series. Probably, the developers of the novelty were guided by the flagship Mi8, which is sometimes difficult to distinguish from the iPhone X.
The new phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset with an integrated Adreno 506 graphics accelerator. All 8 processor cores support the same 2 GHz clock speed. The phone has a front (5 MP) and dual cameras (12 MP + 5 MP). If we compare in more detail with the iPhone X, then the new product from Xiaomi is distinguished by its dimensions in a more elongated shape and slightly thicker.
Redmi 6 Pro is being prepared in three types - with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, then - 4 GB and 32 GB, respectively, and the third option - 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory. The device also has a separate microSD slot for using a second SIM card.
The new gadget received a fairly capacious battery - 4000 mA * h , however, it will take some time to restore it, since the battery cannot boast of ultra-fast charging technology. Redmi 6 Pro is equipped with a fingerprint scanner, but the modern NFC chip for contactless payments is not provided in the device. The smartphone received a fairly modern operating system - Android 8.1 Oreo.
The new 6 Pro, as expected for the entire Redmi lineup, belongs to the budget class in terms of cost. According to rough estimates, the simplest configuration starts at 9500 rubles , the most advanced - about 12,500 rubles .
Tablet with LTE module
In addition to the smartphone, Xiaomi presented the Mi Pad 4 - a tablet with an 8-inch display with rounded sides (the resolution of the device is 1920 x 1200 pixels). The device is powered by a more modern (when compared with a new smartphone) Qualcomm processor Snapdragon 660. The gadget is available in three variations (depending on the amount of RAM and internal memory), one of which is equipped with an LTE module. With its help, the tablet goes online and makes calls.
The tablet is equipped with a 6000mAh battery. The minimum cost starts from about 10,500 rubles .
