Redmi 6A, 6 & 6 Pro Launched in India!



Redmi 6A 6 6 Pro

Xiaomi has finally launched its new budget Redmi 6-series in India that was launched in China sometime ago. Now, the company has landed its Redmi 6A, Redmi 6 and a notched Redmi 6 Pro in the country with an introductory price for first two months.

Interestingly, the former two come with Mediatek SoC’s which became possible only after the removal of ban on use of Mediatek chipsets by Xiaomi in India after settlement of patent infringement lawsuit filed by Ericsson back in 2014. Let’s discuss about the device specifications and features.

Redmi 6A

The Redmi 6A is the most inexpensive smartphone in this series.

It comes with a 5.45 inch HD+ display, which is an upgrade over Redmi 5A which had 5 inch HD+ display.

It is powered by the new Helio A22 chipset, which is a big improvement over the Snapdragon 425 SoC from Redmi 5A, or at least how Xiaomi claims it to be. One major advantage of Helio A22 is that it is based on 12nm process, which means much better thermal performance and efficiency. Also it supports Dual VoLTE, dual standby. It is powered by a measly 3000mAh battery, but with the 12nm chipset, it should last more than 5A.

Talking about the cameras, the Redmi 6A comes with a 13MP rear camera with flash and a 5MP front camera. One interesting fact about the phone is that it supports EIS on rear camera, which is unseen in the budget segment. Also there is presence of raise to wake and face unlock.

The Redmi 6A comes in Black, Gold, Rose Gold, and Blue colour options and is priced at Rs 5,999 for 2GB RAM and 16GB storage variant, while the higher model with 32GB internal storage is pitted at Rs 6,999. It will go on sale on Amazon India as well as on 19th September at 12PM.

  • 13MP rear camera
  • 5MP front camera
  • 3000mAh battery

Redmi 6

The Redmi 6 succeeds the Redmi 5 that came a couple of months ago. Like Redmi 6A, Redmi 6 comes with a 5.45 inch HD+ display, which marks the Redmi series’ re-entry into compact form-factor. As Redmi 5 wasn’t really a compact phone as it came with a 5.7 inch display, which saw the compact form factor thing taken away from Redmi series.

It is powered by Mediatek Helio P22 chipset, which is comparable to Snapdragon 625 in terms of CPU power going by the raw specs, but not so much on GPU power. It is also based on 12nm chipset and supports Dual VoLTE Dual standby. This phone is also backed up by a 3000mAh battery, which really is a downgrade from 3,300mAh battery.

Redmi 6 Pro comes with a dual camera setup on the back similar to that of Redmi Note 5 Pro & Redmi Y2. It is a 12MP Sony IMX486 sensor coupled with 5MP secondary unnamed Samsung sensor. On the front, there is a 5MP selfie shooter.

Asus 6z Launched in India! Comes with Flip Camera, Starts from Rs.31,999.



To compete with OnePlus 7 and Mi 9, Asus has announced its new device Zenfone 6 last month. Asus has finally unveiled the device here in India as 6z; they changed the name due to the ban by Delhi High-Court for using Zen branding. Telecare Network, a company in India has complained that it has been using Zen and ZenMobile as its product monikers since 2008. And Asus was banned to release phones under Zen branding. Here in India, the device is a strong rival to Honor 20 & OnePlus 7.

The 6Z spots a large 6.4-inch edge-to-edge IPS LCD FHD+ display covered in Gorilla Glass 6. It has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 which allows for an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 92%. These large panels are really useful while consuming media. Additionally, it can blow up to 600 nits.

It is paired with 6/8GB of RAM and 64/128/256GB of storage versions. The best part of this is the device supports microSD cards of up to 2TB. It still uses UFS 2.1 as it’s storage type.

Talking about optics it houses a motorized dual camera setup. It has a Sony IMX586 48MP with an aperture value of f/1.8 primary camera sensor which is coupled with 13MP with an aperture value of f/2.4 Wide-Angle sensor with 125 Degree. By default the camera stays at the rear, if we switch it to the front, the camera will rotate automatically to the front.

The module can be set on any angle required in between 0 to 180-degrees which is really unique touch. The angle can be set using volume key as well as a soft button from the screen. The company has also revealed results of a lab test during its official launch. The camera module can survive until 100000 flips, which is converted to 28 flips every day for 5 years. However, in real-world usage, there may be some differences. The phone also supports 4K video recording at 60fps paired with electronic image stabilization (EIS). Full-HD slow-mo video at both 240fps and 120fps is supported, as is HD slow-mo at 480fps. Accompanying this will also be a new function Asus calls Super Night Mode that should drastically improve low-light photography results.
