The Redmi 6 has a 3000mAh battery, 32GB of storage, along with GPS, a fingerprint sensor, a 5MP front camera with AI face unlock technology, a 12MP + 5MP rear camera, as well as a 3.5” headphone jack and a memory card expansion slot.
Created with a 12MP + 5MP dual rear camera, the Redmi 6 will help you to take super snaps. The AI-powered portrait mode can blur backgrounds to create more professional looking shots.
Fire up your phone from the lock screen with just a glance, thanks to the Redmi 6’s front camera’s AI face unlock technology or place your finger on the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner – one tap and away you go.
32GB of storage can fill up quickly, however if you find you need more, don’t worry as the Redmi 6 has a handy memory card slot – pop in a memory card that you’ve previously purchased (up to 256GB) and away you go.
What is SIM free?
You'll receive an unlocked device, so there’s no requirement to commit to any network, leaving you free to decide which SIM card / network to use in the mobile. This gives you the opportunity to find the most suitable plan, whether that’s a SIM only deal, contract or pay-as-you-go, throughout the lifetime of the phone.
Top tip: as this mobile phone is supplied SIM free and unlocked, you have access to SIM only deals – these usually offer far better value for money. (Please search: ‘SIM only deals best price’. Add the price of the smartphone above to the cost of a SIM only deal for 12/24 months – now compare this amount to the same smartphone purchased on a contract for 12/24 months, for eye-opening results.) You also have the option to add a foreign SIM card, so you can use this device overseas for less as well.
Additional information: manufacturers often update their Operating System (OS) software over the course of a device’s lifespan – this means that your product might ship with a more advanced OS than specified.
