Xiaomi has just announced that it will temporarily slash prices of its Redmi 6 lineup. As part of the price reduction, the company is offering discounts of up to Rs 2,500 offering prices at “prices like never before”. The price cut will be in effect from February 6 till February 8, 2019. As part of the price reduction, the company will sell its Redmi 6, Redmi 6 Pro, and Redmi 6A at discounted prices. This price cut is likely to compete with the recently launched Samsung Galaxy M10 and M20 devices from smartphone giant Samsung and attract potential buyers into buying the Redmi series.
The company made the announcement on its official Twitter handle providing details about the price cut and availability. Xiaomi has not really stated that this price cut is because of Samsung but the caption of the price cut announcement tweet did indicate that the company may be aiming at the Galaxy M series. The caption of the tweet reads, “Time for some Real deals! As a ‘M’illennial be smart and choose wisely!” It is also possible that the caption may be aiming at Realme in addition to Samsung but it is all speculation right now.
