While Honor launched the Honor 8X inside the confines of the Great Wall of China, Xiaomi announced the Redmi 6 series in India. The series has already been available in China for a while now and it is the first affordable Redmi series to feature a notch display. The only difference is the Global MIUI 9.6 ROM and the price for the Indian market. Also, we expected to see Snapdragon processors on the MediaTek-chip wielding models but that didn’t turn out. So, we get pretty much same devices as we saw in China. Below are the prices, specs, and availability details of the Redmi 6 Pro and Redmi 6/6A.
