Xiaomi releases official press renders of the Redmi 6 Pro showing us what the smartphone looks like

Last week, Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi announced two new smartphones – the Redmi 6 and the Redmi 6A. And now, Xiaomi is all set to announce one more smartphone – the Redmi 6 Pro – next week on June 25. The specifications of the Redmi 6 Pro have already leaked online, but now, just a couple of days ahead of the launch, Xiaomi has released official press renders of this smartphone to show us what it looks like.


Xiaomi shared these press renders of the Redmi 6 Pro on Chinese social networking site Weibo. As you can see, the Redmi 6 Pro looks very much similar to the Mi 8 that was launched last month. Well that’s because the Redmi 6 Pro has a notch up top along with dual cameras at the back that are placed in the top-left corner in vertical orientation.


The Redmi 6 Pro will come in five colors – Gold, Rose Gold, Blue, Red and Black. And, as you can see from these renders, the smartphone will have a SIM card and microSD card slot on its left, with volume rocker and power button sitting on the right. At the bottom, you have a micro USB port which is flanked by two grilles – one of which houses a speaker and the other one housing a microphone.


At the back, in addition to dual cameras, the smartphone has a fingerprint scanner placed in the center, with Mi logo further down below. Well, even with a notched display, the Redmi 6 Pro seems to have bezels that are thicker than we would have preferred. But, considering the price at which it’s expected to be sold, we won’t complain much.
