Redmi 6 and 6A Announced Powered by MediaTek’s New Helio P22/A22 Chipsets

Xiaomi announced their new phones called the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A today in China. The Redmi 6 comes with a 5.45-inch with a screen ratio of 18:9. It will have 32GB Internal Storage with 3GB of RAM and 64GB with 4GB of RAM. The Redmi 6A will have an internal storage of 16GB and 2GB of RAM.

While Xiaomi has announced numerous times about their strong partnership with Qualcomm to provide chipsets for their phones, this time they opted to use MediaTek’s new MTK Helio P22 and A22 processors. The new Helio P22 consumes about 48% less power than its bigger 28nm counterparts and promises balanced performance. It also allows up to a 13+8MP dual camera system which is capable of capturing professional-grade Depth of Field (Bokeh) effects photos. We can expect to see this feature in the new Redmi 6 asĀ its cameras are equipped with 12 Megapixels and 5 Megapixels with 1.25um large pixels – the largest among popular smartphones in this price range. The Redmi 6A, powered by the Helio A22 will only have a 13 Megapixel camera.
