Xiaomi debuted its latest Redmi smartphone lineup, with the Redmi 6, Redmi 6A, and Redmi 6 Pro, last week. The Redmi 6 is now scheduled to go on sale for the first time at 12:00 PM today via Flipkart (starts Rs 7,999) and Xiaomi’s official website.

Redmi 6: Key Specs

The device sports a 5.45-inch HD+ display (1440x720p) and is powered by a MediaTek Helio P22 chipset instead of a budget Snapdragon chipset like usual. This is paired with two RAM and storage configurations – 3GB+32GB and 4GB+64GB. The storage is further expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card.

In the camera department, the Redmi 6 sports a dual camera module of 13MP+5MP on the back, along with a 5MP selfie shooter, which sounds impressive for a budget smartphone. It is powered by a 3,000mAh battery and runs Android 8.1 Oreo-based MIUI 9.6. There’s dual-4G support on board, so that’s a good thing.
