Xiaomi is today launching a new series of smartphones in India, which it is touting as ‘Desh ke Naye Smartphones’. As we have seen in the teasers so far, the devices launching today are the Redmi 6, Redmi 6A, and the Redmi 6 Pro. The smartphones were initially launched in China earlier this year, and will be succeeding the popular Redmi 5 series in India.
The Redmi 5 series has broken quite a few records since launch last year. Since then however competition has increased, and it will be interesting to see how Xiaomi’s new devices contend with it. One thing is for sure, with its combination of features and price, the Redmi 6, Redmi 6A, and Redmi 6 Pro will continue to be excellent value-for-money propositions.
