The latest poster promoting the premiere of Xiaomi Redmi 6 shows us how this smartphone looks like. Speaking of this model, it seems that Snapdragon 625 will not be its heart, and … MediaTek helio P22. Do you like such a vision?
The official premiere of Redmi 6 smartphones has been scheduled for June 12 – this is tomorrow. Xiaomi once in a while publishes graphics promoting this event, on which he reveals some secrets of upcoming phones. The latest one is especially important because it shows us what Xiaomi Redmi 6 looks like.
Screen 18: 9 and (no) narrow frames
Is the smartphone visible on the graphic below surprising with its appearance? Probably not. Now even cheap models often get screens 18: 9, which try to pretend to be frameless, with not the best result. Exactly the same will be Xiaomi Redmi 6 .The screen used is a matrix with a diagonal of 5.45 inches and HD + resolution (1440×720), which gives us a ratio of 18: 9. The display will be closed in a housing with dimensions of 147.46 x 71.49 x 8.3 mm, so the space management can be described as good – just enough and so much.
Redmi 6 with the P22 Halo?
For some time now we know that the heart of Redmi 6 is to be an octa-core processor clocked at 2 GHz. Virtually everyone thought it was Snapdragon 625, but the truth may be different. A new report in this case claims that the Xiaomi Redmi 6 is to be powered by SoC MediaTek helio P22 , an unit presented by the Taiwanese company less than a month ago. It actually consists of an 8-core Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 2 GHz. The graphic design is PowerVR GE8320, and the whole was made in a modern 12nm technological process . In my opinion, this layout suits the equipment of this class. It is hard to expect that Xiaomi has packed into such a cheap phone processor like Snapdragon 636. In addition, the manufacturer ensures that the smartphone does not slow down over time, and insulting that instead of Snapdragon will be Mediatek, there is no sense to me, if not this will affect Xiaomi updates. As for the amount of memory, it is said about several configurations: 2GB / 16GB, 3GB / 32GB and 4GB / 64GB. Redmi 6 will probably appear in several different versions, with various additions, such as Redmi 6A or Redmi 6 Pro / Plus. We will get to know the future tomorrow. Source: Gizmochin
