Redmi 6 and 6A to Launch in India in September with Mediatek SoCs!

Published

on

Xiaomi launched the Redmi 6 series last month in China. The Redmi 6 and the 6A were launched together while the Redmi 6 Pro was unveiled later on. The biggest change from the predecessor Redmi 5 series was switching from Snapdragon to MediaTek chipsets. Now according to a new report, the Redmi 6 and the Redmi 6A may come to India in September.

In case you forgot, Xiaomi wasn’t actually allowed to use Mediatek chipsets in India. Since 2014 after a court case with Ericsson, Xiaomi was banned from using MediaTek chipsets in their smartphones. The case was settled now, which allows the Chinese smartphone manufacturer to launch devices with MediaTek chipsets in India.

The Redmi 5 and the Redmi 5A was launched last year March and November respectively in India. So it’s highly unlikely the company will launch the upgrades early and will wait till the stocks finish. Unfortunately, there is no word about the Redmi 6 Pro launch in the Indian market as of now.

The Redmi 6 and the Redmi 6A feature similar specs with an 5.84 inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of FHD+ (2280 x 1080 pixels) ) and an aspect ratio of 18:9. Redmi 6 is powered by a Helio P22 SoC while the Redmi 6A houses a Helio A22 SoC. Redmi 6 is available in two configurations: 3GB RAM + 32GB internal storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage while the Redmi 6A is available only in 2GB RAM + 16GB internal storage configuration. All three variants will have expandable memory via microSD card.

The Redmi 6 sports dual cameras in the rear of (12MP + 5MP) configuration while the front will offer a single 5MP camera for selfies and video calling. On the other hand, the 6A offers a single 13MP rear and a front 5MP camera sensor. Though they both feature a rear mounted fingerprint sensor they support Face Unlocking too.

They run on Android 8.1 Oreo with Xiaomi MIUI 9 running on top of it and is backed by a 3,000 mAh battery. The Indian prices of the devices are yet to be announced but are expected to be priced similar to the Chinese variants. The Redmi 6 variants cost 799 Yuan (Rs 8,000 approx) and 999 Yuan (Rs 10,000 approx) respectively while the 6A comes at a price tag of 599 Yuan (Rs 6,000 approx).
