The most important feature of the novelty is a large 5,84-inch screen with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 and an aspect ratio of 19: 9, at the top of which there is a cut-out for the front camera, sensors and a conversation speaker. As for me, top-end smartphones that use this solution in the style of the iPhone X deserve criticism (consumers pay a lot of money, including for uniqueness), on the other hand, the presence of a huge display, even with cut-outs, in a smartphone with a declared price of 9 500 p ($ 150) deserves praise! Dense pixels per inch 432 - more than enough for comfortable Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro

Most of the back panel is made of metal, at the top and bottom there are plastic inserts. This solution was also used in Redmi 5 Plus. The dual camera is located vertically, there is a single LED flash between the lenses. The fingerprint reader is located just above the middle of the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro
