Redmi Note 6 Pro 3GB RAM variant spotted on Geekbench

“Redmi Note 6 Pro 3GB RAM variant spotted in the Geekbench listing has the octa-core Snapdragon 636 processor and Android 8.1 Oreo software”

The Redmi Note 6 Pro is expected to launch in India the next month, but ahead of the unveiling a new variant of the smartphone has been spotted on a popular benchmarking website. The new variant has lower RAM than the model that was unveiled last month in Thailand, and in fact even lower than the one on Redmi Note 5 Pro (review).

A new Redmi Note 6 Pro variant with 3GB RAM has been spotted in a Geekbench listing. The smartphone has the same octa-core Snapdragon 636 processor and Android 8.1 Oreo software as the Thai model. However, the RAM is listed as 2,737MB, suggesting Xiaomi is also testing a 3GB option for the handset. This smartphone has notched a single-core score of 1,343 and multi-core score of 4,877 on Geekbench. No other information about the smartphone is available in the listing.

The Redmi Note 6 Pro has been unveiled with 4GB and 6GB RAM options, both with 64GB storage. These configurations are the same as that of the handset’s predecessor. A recent leak suggested Xiaomi will be launching these exact variants in the Indian market, with no mention of a 3GB option. Nonetheless, if such a model is indeed launched, it will be positioned below the base 4GB variant. Xiaomi is expected to host the Redmi Note 6 Pro India launch event in New Delhi between November 10th and November 19th.
