The Redmi 6 series launched in China back in June but come next month, they will be heading to India.
The Redmi 6 series includes the Redmi 6A, the Redmi 6, and the Redmi 6 Pro. All three phones are set for a September 5 launch based on the invite sent out. Xiaomi has already sent out invites for the launch.
The Redmi 6A is the least powerful of all three. It has a 5.45” HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by MediaTek’s Helio A22 processor, a 12nm quad-core chipset clocked at 2.0GHz. The chipset is paired with 2GB/3GB/4GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB/64GB of expandable storage.
The Redmi 6A has a single 13MP sensor on the back and a 5MP front-facing camera. It doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner and also lacks an IR blaster but has a 3.5mm audio jack. There is a 3,000mAh battery under the hood that charges via a MicroUSB port.
The Redmi 6 has the same screen as the 6A but swaps the Helio A22 for the 12nm Helio P22 – a 2.0GHz octa-core chipset with a PowerVR GPU. It has 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of storage.
There are 12MP + 5MP dual cameras on the back and a 5MP selfie camera above the display. It has a fingerprint scanner and audio jack but also lacks an IR blaster. Its battery capacity is also 3,000mAh and like the Redmi 6A, it runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.
Redmi 6 Pro
The Redmi 6 Pro launched globally as the Mi A2 Lite but it isn’t sold in India which explains why it is heading there. It has a 5.84” 1080 x 2280 display with a notch at the top.
It is powered by the Snapdragon 625 processor with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. There are dual 12MP + 5MP sensors on the back of the phone and a 5MP front-facing camera that resides within the notch. It has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, an IR blaster, and a 4,000mAh battery.
Pricing for the three phones in India is currently not known but they should be very affordable.
