Xiaomi is planning to bring the Redmi 6, Redmi 6A, and Redmi 6 Pro to India on September 5. The phones all came out in China back in June this year, so it’s taken a couple of months for the devices to go international.

Manu Kumar Jain, Xiaomi’s India head, announced the news via his Twitter account. He didn’t actually mention the Redmi 6, Redmi 6A, and Redmi 6 Pro by name, but he did attach a video which pretty much gave the game away. The teaser heavily features the number 6. It also includes 3 smartphones, 2 of which have bezels and 1 of which has a notch.

The Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A sport 18:9 narrow-bezel screens, while the Redmi 6 Pro has a 19:9 notched display. Jain didn’t mention any date in his post, but Xiaomi sent an invite later which confirmed the September 5 date.

The Redmi series is known for offering mid-range specs at entry-level prices and the Redmi 6 lineup is no different. The Redmi 6 starts at CNY 799 (about Rs 8284) for its 3GB/32GB option and goes up to CNY 999 (roughly Rs 10358) for its 4GB/64GB one.
