A smartphone coming out of nowhere and inheriting a big title, the best buy that still accompanies the previous generation, or the Redmire Xiaomi Note Pro 5. It seems that the company of Lei Jun, has been ashamed of this new device, which instead brings interesting news and that could in its own way undermine the preconceptions that accompanied the Redmi Note debut in the 6 Pro market.
So let's see together the contents of the package of this smartphone, starting to lay the foundation for what will be the complete review that will be made possible thanks to the sending of the sample by the HonorBuy.it store that we thank warmly.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro - Unboxing and first impressions
The sales package does not present big news compared to what we are accustomed with smartphones belonging to the Redmi series, in fact the color that stands out is orange, which identifies the Global version and this is already good news, as we should not go crazy with the installation of Google services, notifications and especially Italian language. Inside we find (in addition to the smartphone that comes to us in the color Black), a budget that Xiaomi has now accustomed us for some time, starting with quick instruction manual lapel pin to remove the SIM trolley in nano and classic format cover made of TPU in smoked color.
There is no cwall grate with support with 5V / 2A output and attached cable with micro USB connection which also acts as a data transfer. Unfortunately, the format adopted in this end 2018 is still the old micro USB, an improvement that would have certainly benefited the popularity of Redmi Note 6 Pro.
On an aesthetic level we are faced with one form factor very similar to the one already seen on the previous generation, although the differences are noted by virtue of the fact that a display from 6,26 inches with resolution Full HD + with aspect ratio in 19: 9, all completed by a notch in which the proximity and brightness sensors, the headset capsus, are located, Notification LED and a dual chamber with primary sensor from well 20 megapixels and secondary megapixel sensor.
Moving to the back, we find the Dual rear camera from 12 + 5 megapixels, in addition to fingerprint unlocking sensor. All this is contained in a body entirely made of metal from the good construction with 3 design to stadiums because in the upper and lower part the plastic bands are inserted to receive the integrated antennas that blend with the profile of the smartphone, unfortunately made of plastic.
Finally, there are the iconic volume keys and on / off on the right profile while the left one is dedicated to the SIM cart. Finally, the main microphone is completed micro USB input with OTG support and system speaker on the bottom and inlet jack from 3,5 mm, IR transmitter and second microphone on the upper profile.
The substantial differences concern a lot the photographic sector even at the software level because AI technology is integrated with scene detection for the rear camera and the AI portrait for the front camera, but this is an aspect that we will analyze in our full review. Wondering what are the first impressions of this Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro?
At first glance, the smartphone is decidedly more modern and above all ergonomics seems to have improved despite the increase in size of the display. As always, the feeling of having a well-designed terminal in your hands is not lacking. But now I just have to go and configure everything and test it in depth ... and before you condemn the notch, wait for the review because I think the experience of daily use will not be so dramatic.
