It will be an exciting spring for fans of Chinese price / performance champions. Yesterday Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 9 Pro family in India, today Realme announced that the very similar Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro Midranger will also start in Europe on March 24th.
Does it always have to be a flagship for 1,000 euros and more? But no, of course not! 2020 will be more exciting than ever in the price range below 250 euros. At the beginning of the month, the Oppo branches Realme in India launched the Realme 6 and the Realme 6 Pro.At prices starting at 160 euros, you can get a 64 megapixel quad camera and 210 euros and a Snapdragon 720G SoC and one 90 Hz display.
Do you seem familiar? Right, yesterday Xiaomi followed up in India and presented the Redmi Note 9 Pro series consisting of Redmi Note 9 Pro and Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, both in the same price range, also with Quad-Cam but depending on the model, 48 megapixels or 64 Megapixel camera, but without the 90 Hz panel. Even before Xiaomi, Realme is now bringing the blockbuster duo to Europe. A live stream launch event was announced for March 24, in which the European prices will then be revealed.
These could be a little higher than in India, but the predecessors Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro are currently both under 200 euros (at Amazon, for example, here), meaning it could be very cheap. Xiaomi has not yet announced a European launch date for the Redmi Note 9 Pro Duo, but we expect an announcement here soon. 2020 will be exciting for price-conscious smartphone fans, there have never been so many camera features for so little money.
