The Redmi 6 Pro sports a dual rear camera setup (12 MP Sony IMX486, f/2.2 + 5 MP Samsung S5K5E8, f/2.2), and a 5 MP selfie camera. Here's everything you need to know about the devices, including their specifications, features, and prices. Of course, while the Redmi 4 Prime was a compact device with a big battery and a modern processor (at the time), the Redmi 6 Pro is on the large side and doesn't really offer anything new.

Redmi Note 5 Pro users will start getting the update to Android O-based MIUI 9.5 in phases, starting Friday, 29th June! Last year, the Chinese smartphone maker had launched the Mi A1 Android One smartphone at a global event in India, which was originally launched in China with the name of Xiaomi Mi 5X.

The camera on the Mi Pad 4 is a 13megapixel unit with f/2.0 aperture. It features an 8-inch full HD+ display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:10. The Xiaomi Mi 8 SE is the world's first smartphone to feature the all-new Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform built on the 10nm FinFET process. Just like its predecessor, the upcoming Mi Max 3 should also come with the metal unibody design. The base variant with 3GB and 32GB storage will be priced at 999 yuan (US$ 156 / Rs. 10,520 approx).

Apart from notch display, Xioami Redmi 6 Pro's highlights are AI dual rear cameras, an octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC, a 4000mAh battery, a dedicated microSD card slot, AI face unlock, and voice assistant features. The device achieved this landmark feat within 18 days since it first went on sale on June 5. Variants available are the following: 3GB RAM with 32GB storage WiFi model for CNY1,099 ($170).

It is part of the Mi 8 smartphone series, which also includes a cheaper Mi 8 SE and a special version Mi 8 Explorer Edition, which is the most premium of the lot. In comparison, the Mi Pad 3 only comes in a single memory configuration with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Five color options will be available, including black, red, light blue, pink, and gold.

RAM/storage options and pricing vary across three models: 3/32GB costs 999 Yuan ($153), 4/32GB is 1199 Yuan ($183), and the top tier model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage will set you back 1299 Yuan ($199).
