Xiaomi has officially launched the Redmi 6 Pro and Mi Pad 4 in China, putting an end to an endless stream of leaks and rumors. The former is the first Redmi phone to get hold of a notch design.
Other than the cutout, the Redmi 6 Pro looks a lot like the Redmi Note 5 Pro. Both sport the same dual rear vertical camera setup at the back and narrow borders up front. The notch helps the Redmi 6 Pro gain an aspect ratio of 19:9 for a bit more screen than its 18:9 counterpart, although it does have a slightly smaller 5.84-inch display.
