Redmi 6A 6 6 Pro

Xiaomi has finally launched its new budget Redmi 6-series in India that was launched in China sometime ago. Now, the company has landed its Redmi 6A, Redmi 6 and a notched Redmi 6 Pro in the country with an introductory price for first two months.

Interestingly, the former two come with Mediatek SoC’s which became possible only after the removal of ban on use of Mediatek chipsets by Xiaomi in India after settlement of patent infringement lawsuit filed by Ericsson back in 2014. Let’s discuss about the device specifications and features.

Redmi 6A

The Redmi 6A is the most inexpensive smartphone in this series.

It comes with a 5.45 inch HD+ display, which is an upgrade over Redmi 5A which had 5 inch HD+ display.

It is powered by the new Helio A22 chipset, which is a big improvement over the Snapdragon 425 SoC from Redmi 5A, or at least how Xiaomi claims it to be. One major advantage of Helio A22 is that it is based on 12nm process, which means much better thermal performance and efficiency. Also it supports Dual VoLTE, dual standby. It is powered by a measly 3000mAh battery, but with the 12nm chipset, it should last more than 5A.

Talking about the cameras, the Redmi 6A comes with a 13MP rear camera with flash and a 5MP front camera. One interesting fact about the phone is that it supports EIS on rear camera, which is unseen in the budget segment. Also there is presence of raise to wake and face unlock.

The Redmi 6A comes in Black, Gold, Rose Gold, and Blue colour options and is priced at Rs 5,999 for 2GB RAM and 16GB storage variant, while the higher model with 32GB internal storage is pitted at Rs 6,999. It will go on sale on Amazon India as well as on 19th September at 12PM.

It is powered by Mediatek Helio P22 chipset, which is comparable to Snapdragon 625 in terms of CPU power going by the raw specs, but not so much on GPU power. It is also based on 12nm chipset and supports Dual VoLTE Dual standby. This phone is also backed up by a 3000mAh battery, which really is a downgrade from 3,300mAh battery.
