There is an opinion low-end smartphones are sold much but they can’t stand out. Those who are familiar with Xiaomi’s Redmi-series handsets know the incorrectness of this statement. Today, the manufacturer announced the sixth-gen Xiaomi Redmi 6, which is the first in the world for a few aspects. First, this is the world’s first thousand yuan smartphone packed with a processor on a 12nm process node. Second, it comes with a camera that has the largest pixel unit size in the 1000 yuan niche. What’s more curious, comes at a quite low price tag of $159.99.
The Xiaomi Redmi 6 sports a 5.45-inch full-screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio and an 80.5% screen ratio. It retains both the forehead and chin. So we can say this another full-screen smartphone not looking like the notch screen. The back panel uses a matte metal process. So in combination with the size and rounded corners, it provides an excellent grip feeling.
Under the hood, the phone carries a MediaTek Helio P22 chip. In comparison to the 28nm process chips, it reduces the power consumption by 48%. The Helio P22 uses an octa-core architecture of four A53 cores clocked at 2.0GHz and four A53 cores clocked at 1.5GHz. Compared to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, the Helio P22 has achieved a 27% performance increase. The chip is paired with a 3/4GB of RAM, 32/64GB of storage, and 3000mAh battery.
As we said, the second biggest selling point of the Xiaomi Redmi 6 is its camera. It comes with a 12Mp + 5MP dual-camera, the main sensor of which has a 1.25-um unit pixel size. The larger unit pixel size facilitates the imaging effect of dark light shooting, as more incoming light can make night shots brighter while suppressing noise. There is also a frontal 5MP camera supporting AI portrait mode for single-focus bokeh. The official photo samples prove it is really can take astonishing photos.
At last, the Xiaomi Redmi 6 has many built-in functions based on AI development: first it comes with AI Voice Commands support; at the same time, the phone will automatically light up when picked up enabling AI Face Unlocking; The Redmi can identify the names of flowers and cars, as well as identify some life items for price comparison; it has a built-in photo translation function and supports seven languages, including English, French, Japanese, South Korean, German, West Hindi into Chinese; and so on.
