Xiaomi Leads India Smartphone Market in Q3, Prices to Rise: IDC

Redmi Note 6 Pro Indian launch

The company has sent out media invites for an event in New Delhi, which starts 11:30 AM.

The Redmi Note 6 Pro is gradually making its way across Asia.

Xiaomi released the Redmi Note 4 in January past year and it was an instant success. After the launch, the smartphone will be made available for online retail during Black Friday Sale on November 23 at 12 PM IST.

Global oil market to lapse into surplus in 2019
Brent Crude is not down more than 20 percent from its recent high, officially putting it in bear market territory. USA crude futures lost $3.59, or 6 per cent, to hit $56.35 a barrel, lowest since December 2017, as of 1:45 p.m.

The successor to Redmi Note 5 Pro, which was launched in India in February this year, features four cameras - two on the front and two at the back. For those unaware, the handset was launched in China earlier this month and in Thailand back in September. The Note 6 Pro was launched in Indonesia at a price of 2,800,000 Indonesian Rupiah (about Rs 13,745) and we expect the phone to be launched at the same price point in India as well. It has an IPS LCD display with 19:9 aspect ratio and 86% screen-to-body ratio. Moreover, the smartphone will be packed with Corning Gorilla Glass protection. This allowed Xiaomi to replace Samsung at the top spot in the Indian smartphone market, which isn't a small feat by any means.

- For now, there is no hint of the price of the Redmi Note 6 Pro but chances are that the phone will be priced between Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000 and hence will compete with some of the Nokia as well as with Xiaomi's own Mi A2, which uses Android one software. Powering the device is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC, paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage (expandable up to 256GB). There is dual-pixel autofocus, enhanced low-light photography, HDR, EIS, and dynamic bokeh. The secondary camera that helps in the Redmi Note 6 Pro's portrait mode comes with 1 5-megapixel sensor.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 runs on a 4000 mAh Li-ion battery with 10W charging with a dedicated 3.5 mm headphone jack and an infrared sensor. Measuring 157.9 x 76.38 x8.2mm, the smartphone houses a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and an IR blaster for controlling home appliances and other devices.
