You will be able to hide the notch on Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro

Yay!

Xiaomi is all set to launch the Redmi 6 Pro next week on June 25, and, just a couple of days ahead of the launch, Xiaomi released a bunch of official press renders that revealed the design of the smartphone along with the different color options it will be available in. The Redmi 6 Pro, like the flagship Mi 8, will come with a notch. And while the inclusion of a notch does come with its fair share of advantages and disadvantages, Xiaomi has announced something that will make the day of those who dislike the notch.

Xiaomi has announced that users will be able to hide the notch on the Redmi 6 Pro. There will be an option tucked inside the Settings menu that will let users hide the notch. This will be done in the same way it’s done on the OnePlus 6 and some other smartphones that let you hide the notch – by displaying black bars on both the sides of the notch, effectively making it invisible.

Well, this is certainly a good news for those who are planning to buy the Redmi 6 Pro but just don’t like the notch for various reasons.

That said, after releasing official press renders of the Redmi 6 Pro, Xiaomi has also shared some live images of this upcoming smartphone on Chinese social network Weibo. You can see that the smartphone has a notch up top, and at the back, has a dual camera setup in the top-left corner with fingerprint scanner placed in the center.
