kiasunkiasi, 11 Sep 2018what? where? that black strip? isn't that ribbon connector?Hahaha... just let him have it. You should just agreed to his suggestion
Xiaomi employee 1: We need a successor for Redmi Note 5.
Xiaomi employee 2: How do we improve it?
Xiaomi employee 1: Let 's add a NOTCH because everyone else is doing it. Besides our boss needs to "earn" money from the mid-top to top tier models. He said to us after putting our company in the stock market.
Xiaomi employee 2: Why?
Xiaomi employee 1: Because it's the TREND, duh. Besides all except Mi Max, Mi Mix and Mi Note Series do have a "beautiful" NOTCH we all hold dear to. This is the only way to get people who hate NOTCHES to buy our more expensive$$ Mi Max, Mi Mix and Mi Note Series to feed our boss, Lei Jun who has our company into the stock market. We will get bonuses$$ as well.
Xiaomi employee 2: You make a lot of sense. Let's shaft this "trendy" notched Redmi Note 6 right down the consumer's throats!! If people don't like it, they are "forced" to buy the mid-top to top tier models!!
There, this is how the conversation went. Pretty much sums up Xiaomi nowadays after getting into the stock market.

IMX378 on Mi5s, downgraded with the inferior IMX386 on Mi6, then upgraded with the IMX363 but still inferior compared to the IMX378.
Not talking about multiple camera tho, i'm not seeing any advantages on that.
Illenium, 10 Sep 2018I can see liquid cooling setup in the phonewhat? where? that black strip? isn't that ribbon connector?
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2018Wrong!! Notch rules!!Then go with it.
It's dying BTW!
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2018Wrong!! Notch rules!!To each their own.
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2018Micro USB should die and be banned forever!!! notch should be banned for ever
It seems the Mi, Redmi, Redmi Note Series are the only ones affected with NOTCH. Except Mi Max and Mi Mix series. Xiaomi "FORCES" you to pay even MORE for a full-screen display IMO. Mi Max is more expensive$$ than Redmi Note series.
I KNEW Redmi Note series will SUBMIT to having a NOTCH soon after Redmi Series. Sorry my existing Redmi Note 4 will NOT BE UPGRADING to Redmi Note 6 unless the software comes with "hide notch" option.
Geric.770, 10 Sep 2018Men, notches need to die. XD IMO!Wrong!! Notch rules!!
Please no ugly notch for Redmi Note 6!!! Just make the edges of Redmi Note 5 smaller and include Snapdragon 670 and USB-C and you have the perfect Redmi note 6.
Jamesschwarz987, 10 Sep 2018At least,let's hope that this would NOT have either the smallish IMX486 or the cancerous Snapd... moreMost likely it will be a Samsung ISOCELL 1/2.55" sensor, since its predecessor Redmi Note 5 Global already utilizes that sensor.
The Sony IMX486 should be used as the front camera instead.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 10 Sep 2018At least this is smaller than the rumoured Google Pixel 3XL lolHehe yeah. Pixel's notch is an example of a Fugly Notched phone.
