Redmi 6 Redmi 6A

The current Redmi 5 series is barely 7 months old and Xiaomi has just announced the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A smartphones. These are entry-level devices that are priced under RM500 (799CNY) and both of them offer a taller 18:9 “Full View” display in a more compact package.

For those who felt that the current Redmi 5‘s 5.7″ screen is too big, the Redmi 6 could be the budget phone you’re looking for. It has a 5.45″ display that pushes an HD+ resolution of 1440×720.

Instead of a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the Redmi 6 is powered by a 12nm Octa-core MediaTek P22 unit that’s mated to 3GB or 4GB RAM with either 32GB or 64GB of storage. Storage is still expandable via microSD on a hybrid SIM tray slot.

The Redmi 6 also offers dual-camera at a lower price point with a 12MP f/2.2 main shooter and a secondary 5MP unit for bokeh effects. In front, it comes with a 5MP f/2.2 camera that supports AI beautification.

Powering the device is a 3,000mAh battery which charges via microUSB. It also gets a fingerprint sensor at the rear and you do have the option to use Face Unlock. The Redmi 6 is officially priced at 799CNY (about RM498) for 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and 999CNY (about RM623) for 4GB RAM + 64GB storage model.

Redmi 6A

Succeeding the Redmi 5A is the new Redmi 6A. It also gets a 5.45″ HD+ 720p display in 18:9 aspect ratio but it is powered by a 12nm Quad-Core MediaTek Helio A22 processor. Being an entry-level device, it comes with just 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage which is expandable via microSD.

The phone life-cycle in motherland China is crazy fast is attributed to the rampant
counterfeiting aka clone aka tipu-punya!

If the main phone players over there (Xiaomi, Huawei, Oppo, etc) do not cycle
their product fast enough, counterfeiters will catch up & eat their slice of pie of the chart.

Due to large market size in China, they can over over-flowed the market.

Any excess stocks or inventories… they will 'dump' it into India & rest of teh werld 😉


Rm 6 downgrade from rm5/note/pro but with upgrade camera

as I appreciate xiaomi offer affordable range of budget phones, but xiaomi did let me down with quality issues. the wifi and GPS which constantly inaccurate . lost in action in critical moment especially Waze. in my honest opinion. just top up a few hundred and get the best Asus zenphone max pro m1
