Fake Redmi Note 6 Pro

This is all mentioned on the AliExpress website but most of the specifications seem fake. We don’t know whether it is real or not but this is our opinion only to assume it to be fake Redmi Note 6 Pro. Firstly, there is no official announcement from Xiaomi about Redmi Note 6 Pro. Actually, the predecessor to the Redmi Note 6 Pro was launched in 2018 itself, so we expect the next generation of Note series in next year. But people can argue that the Redmi 6 launched in the same year. So we can leave this part but still, there are points against the listing.

Specifications include an 19:9 panel with the resolution of 1080×2160 pixels but it’s just the 18:9 panel.  Here is the first doubt, how to give 19:9 aspect ratio display with the resolution of 1080×2160 pixels. Then there is the Snapdragon 660 which is acceptable as it is an upgrade over the last generation. But how 3GB Ram? if the previous generation of Redmi Note 6 Pro had 4GB Ram as the base variant. And now 3GB Ram in the successor to the Redmi Note 5 Pro.

The Reality

All this proves somehow that the listed phone is a fake Redmi Note 6 Pro. Chances are that it might be even true but we assume it to be real for now. Somehow this gives us an indication to the Redmi Note 6 Pro. Even this could be Xiaomi’s strategy to create hype for the phone Redmi Note 6 Pro.

Whether its fake or real we leave to you. Do let us know
