Xiaomi Redmi 6 and 6A Tech Specs

Xiaomi has followed up its last year’s Redmi 5A phone with the latest Redmi 6 and 6A in 2018. Keeping the same price bracket, the brand has managed to improve a lot of things in this year’s iteration of the 5A lineup. Key things that differentiate the phone include the new 18:9 display. Further, there is a dual-lens camera setup on the back side of Redmi 6 but not in 6A. There is also an included fingerprint scanner which, again, is placed on the back.

Over the past couple of years, smartphone innovation has indeed stagnated. There haven’t been many drastic changes in flagship smartphones hence users are still satisfied with older versions. On the contrary, the budget smartphone class has improved by multiple folds — Redmi 6/6A 2018 proves to be a great candidate as evidence.

The most surprising aspect of these two phone variants is its SoC. Instead of sticking with Qualcomm Snapdragon families, Xiaomi has planted MediaTek Helio P22 and A22. This helps the company keeping the price point at a budget-friendly level.

Without further ado, let’s jump to the specifications of each device:

  1. Write more, that’s all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what you’re talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?
