The next big addition to the Redmi Note lineup came in the form of the Redmi Note 6 Pro. This is the very first budget phone from the brand to pack a notched display. One of the highlighting features of the phone is its camera prowess.

The build is done with a combination of metal and plastic which gives off a sturdy look and feel. As for the optics, the phone has a dual-camera setup on the rear with a 12-megapixel main sensor which is assisted with a 5-megapixel depth sensor. On the front too we get to see a dual-camera selfie shooter with a main 20-megapixel shooter which is assisted with a 2-megapixel secondary sensor.
