Mi Redmi Note 6 Pro vs Mi Redmi Note 7 Pro

Xiaomi is getting ready to introduce its next Redmi phone in India: Redmi Note 6 Guru on November 22. 

Given the success of Redmi Note 5 Pro, which has been launched back in February this year, hopes will be high from the new variant.  But Redmi Note 6 Pro has already been established for markets like Dubai, Thailand.

Redmi Notice 6 Pro

Redmi Notice 6 Pro looks quite similar to the elderly Redmi Note 5 Guru from the trunk, which is not surprising.  Xiaomi has not really changed the look of the Redmi Note series radically, although the newer phone is made of 6000 series aluminum, which guarantees a sturdier body.

The Redmi Note 6 Pro's screen is slightly larger at 6.26 inches, which has a notch on top.  It also comes with two cameras around the front, and this is a 20MP+2MP mix. 

The notched screen usually means the screen aspect ratio is now 19:9, compared to the 18:9 ratio on the older the Redmi Note 5 Guru.  The negative bezels haven't completely disappeared and the upper and bottom bezel remain quite prominent as it had been on the previous phone.


Redmi Note 6 Pro continues with a 12MP+5MP camera combo.  But Xiaomi has altered the sensors.  Redmi Note 6 Guru doesn't possess Phased Detection AutoFocus (PDAF) such as the previous version.  Xiaomi has gone for Dual Pixel Autofocus, which can be superior.  

Redmi Note 6 Guru's 12MP camera also includes a bigger pixel sensor in 1.4um and enhanced aperture of f/1.9.  The Redmi Note 5 Guru's 12MP camera includes a 1.25um pixel size and f/2.2 aperture.

Just how much of a difference this makes in real use can only be decided after we have used the camera broadly.  For the time being, however, the camera shots are nice, it is quick to focus, and the general image quality is not bad. 

Whether this is a radical improvement compared to the Redmi Note 5 Pro, which also had a superb camera for its price, nevertheless remains to be seen.

Redmi Note 6 Pro runs MIUI 10 Global ROM, although this is based on Android Oreo for today.  Xiaomi is to roll out an Android Pie update for the MIUI.  By default, Redmi Note 6 Pro has the buttons that are older format available.  However, the interface now has improved gestures under the full-screen mode.

Screen Gestures

When you turn on the Full-Screen Gestures, Xiaomi's MIUI 10 gives a mini tutorial on how these operate, that will be great for users.  One just must swipe from the bottom towards the top on the go back to home from an app.  You are able to swipe from the bottom and continue to pause in order to go to the Recents menu and close apps. 

When you've got an app open, simply swipe left or right from the edge to return to the previous program open.  Within our restricted usage, the MIUI 10 gestures are working smoothly and do not appear to be that complex.


The Redmi Note 6 Pro is still powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chip like the older phone.  We don't anticipate that the performance will be radically different.  Redmi Note 5 Guru was a secure phone, and a good performer in the mid-budget category and Redmi Note 6 Guru will likely continue this trend.

Redmi Note 7

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi is set to launch its new smartphone Redmi Note 7 in India.  Company Director Manu Kumar Jain on Thursday tweeted his image along with Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun holding the Redmi Note 7 in his hands. 

The tweet additionally includes an upside-down text that specifies the coming of the 48-megapixel camera phone.  The Redmi Note 7 is the first phone from the company under the currently independent Redmi brand that is followed closely by Redmi Note 7 Pro and Redmi Go in the upcoming months.
