First smartphone in this price range to use 12nm platform to achieve balanced performance and power consumption
Cairo, 1 of August, 2018—Global technology leader Xiaomi introduced the incredibly accessible Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A today in Egypt, starting at an amazing price of EGP1,899. Redmi 6 features the latest MediaTek Helio P22 chipset, based on a 12nm process for a great balance between power and battery performance, as well as a 12MP + 5MP dual camera for beautiful photos.
Faster and more efficient with 12nm SoC
Redmi 6 sports the latest MediaTek Helio P22 SoC. Its octa-core CPU is built on 12nm process and consumes about 48% less power than comparable 28nm chipsets. The CPU also features ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture that automatically switches between performance and power-efficient cores depending on tasks, so as to achieve balanced performance and power consumption.
See more with the 5.45-inch 18:9 display
Redmi 6 has a 5.45-inch 18:9 display with a screen-to-body ratio of 80.5%. Its polycarbonate back panel has a look and feel akin to a brushed metal surface, and is symmetrically curved and gently tapered toward the edges so it feels great in the hand.
1.25µm-pixel sensor for beautiful photos day and night
Redmi 6 has a 12MP + 5MP dual camera setup. The main sensor has 1.25µm large pixels—the largest among popular smartphones in this price range. Larger pixels take in more light than smaller ones, a huge advantage for improving photo quality and reducing noise, especially in low-light conditions. It also uses phase-detection autofocus to improve focusing speed so users won’t miss capturing important moments. The 5MP front camera of Redmi 6 is supported by Xiaomi’s AI Portrait mode, which renders a realistic bokeh effect with a single lens.
EGP1,899 Redmi 6A offers great value
Redmi 6A adopts the same body and screen as Redmi 6. It sports the MediaTek Helio A22 SoC that is also built on the 12nm process. Redmi 6A’s 3000mAh battery allows the phone to stay in standby mode for up to 19 days. Redmi 6A has a 13MP rear camera featuring phase detection autofocus and a 5MP front camera—both capable of using Xiaomi’s AI Portrait mode. MIUI has also been optimized for Redmi 6A, reducing system apps’ memory usage by nearly 30%.
Redmi 6 comes in two versions: 3GB + 32GB for EGP2,666 and 4GB + 64GB for EGP3,222. Redmi 6A is priced at EGP1,899 for 2GB + 16GB and EGP2,099 for 2GB + 32GB. They will be available from August 1st on Jumia, Authorized Mi Store and independent retail stores.
