Xiaomi has recently launched Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite Android One smartphones. The Mi A2 is selling with a starting price of Rs. 16,999 (~$239), but the Mi A2 Lite has not arrived in India yet. The Mi A2 Lite is the very same Redmi 6 Pro smartphone that lacks the MIUI skin.

So, it is very likely that India will be receiving Redmi 6 Pro instead of Mi A2 Lite.
