Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro

Xiaomi has just introduced Redmi 6 Pro, an upgraded sibling of the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A, along with Mi Pad 4 for the Chinese Market. One thing that interest me is how these two resemble iPhone X and iPad.

The Redmi 6 Pro comes with a notch on top of it’s display on top and a sizeable chin below. The front camera comes with AI that feature Face Unlock and the rear dual camera stands horizontally. Said by Android Police the “design is clearly borrowed from the iPhone X”, but for me it’s simply a carbon copy of the X.

Redmi 6 Pro specification:

– 5MP front camera also with AI

Alternatives

For those who like notched display, or iPhone clone but with budget, you can try:

Oukitel U18

The Oukitel U18 is my top choice as an alternative of the Redmi 6 Pro. U18 falls in the same category as Redmi 6 Pro as budget-friendly. It have notched display but slightly wider notch than the Redmi 6 Pro but it offers slightly larger display of 5.85″ HD with 21:9 ratio display. The U18 comes  with just one variant, so it is easier for you to choose, 4GB+64GB that cost from $150.

Oukitel U18 specification:

16MP + 5MP rear camera with flash
– 13MP front camera supports Face ID unlock
– MediaTek MTK6750T 1.5 GHz octa-core processor with Mali T860 GPU
– 4,000mAh power-packed battery

Leagoo S9

This is the not really my favorite since it cost almost the same as the U18 but lacks in storage and battery. It offers 4GB RAM and lower 32GB storage and way lower 3,300mAh than both Redmi 6 Pro and U18. For display, it comes with the same 5.85″ HD with lower display ratio of 19:9. One thing that makes me want to put this phone as an alternative is that Leagoo claims that it is capable to to shoot up to 65MP.

Leagoo S9 specification:

– 13MP + 2MP rear camera with flash
– 8MP front camera supports Face ID unlock
– MediaTek MTK6750T 1.5 GHz octa-core processor with Mali T860 GPU
– 4,000mAh power-packed battery
– 2 nano-sim card or single micro-SD expansion supports expandable storage up to 64GB
– 5.85″ HD with 19:9 ratio display
