The new Redmi 6 - A timely update for the Note 5 Pro.

Xiaomi produces some of the best and most innovative smartphones available in the market for the last few years. From entry-level budget devices to flagships, Xiaomi has it all. To maintain the top range and lower ones- introducing the Redmi series. Recently a new Xiaomi Redmi 6 has arrived in the market. The new Redmi 6 appears to be a minor hardware refresh and yet, has some big improvements in areas which the Redmi Note 5 Pro lacked. The device offers more usable screen space compared to the last generation and also has better screen-to-body ratio. The side bezels and chin have shrunk, screen size has grown- from 5.99" to 6.26" and it's now taller as well - from 18:9 to 19:9 aspect ratios. The display has a 1080 x 2280 pixel resolution and an IPS LCD panel. Another big improvement is the camera. The notch on the front accommodates two sensors instead of one - 20MP main one with f/2.0 aperture and a 2MP camera for depth sensing. On the back, the old 12MP lens has been replaced with one that has a wider f/1.9 aperture that would surely help with low-light photography.
