Let’s jump right in. The top-of-the-line model of the Redmi Note 6 Pro retails for Php12,990, and that only comes with a 4GB/64GB memory and storage configuration. On the other hand, the Redmi Note 7’s most expensive variant already has a 6GB/64GB combo and is expected to arrive in the Philippines in the range of Php11,000-13,000.

Given that the Redmi Note 6 Pro will surely have a price drop eventually to compensate, this battle is still a sure win for the Redmi Note 7.

For starters, it has a more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, than the Snapdragon 636 chip that the latter has. Having a better chipset also means a more powerful GPU (Adreno 512), making it better for gaming.

While both devices have the same 4,000mAh battery, the Redmi Note 7 gets a one-up by sporting Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0 technology.

Of course, we have the Redmi Note 7’s biggest feature, the 48-megapixel primary camera. That easily towers the 12-megapixel shooter that the latter has. We shall also expect pixel-packed sensors like this in more phones this 2019.

But to give the Redmi Note 6 Pro some credit, it does have a better 20-megapixel + 2-megapixel selfie snappers on the front, while the former only has a single 13-megapixel shooter.

There’s also the small things like the USB Type-C port, Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection, and the more attractive and shiny design. Clearly, there’s not a lot of reasons why you should consider the Redmi Note 7  over the Redmi Note 6 Pro.
