Original Story: Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi launched two new smartphones in India this month – the Xiaomi Mi A2, and, the POCO F1. Well, the POCO F1 is actually a product of Xiaomi’s new sub-brand Pocophone which is called POCO in India. Having said that, after launching two smartphones in India this month, Xiaomi is gearing up to launch three more smartphones in India soon.

Xiaomi has shared a video on Twitter teasing the launch of three new smartphones in India. Xiaomi has used the hashtag #DeshKeNayeSmartphones to promote these upcoming smartphones. While Xiaomi hasn’t revealed the name of these smartphones or when it’s going to launch them, the video that has been shared by the company pretty much confirms that Xiaomi is going to launch the Redmi 6, Redmi 6A and Redmi 6 Pro in India soon.

Like we said, Xiaomi hasn’t revealed the date of launch of these three smartphones, but, back in early July, we came across a report which stated that Xiaomi was going to launch the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A in India in the month of September. Well, it looks like that report will turn out to be true pretty soon.

The Xiaomi Redmi 6 and 6A look very much the same, but, they are differentiated by the amount of RAM and processor. Oh, and yes, unlike the Redmi 6, the Redmi 6A doesn’t come with a fingerprint scanner and dual rear cameras.

The Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A are powered by MediaTek’s Helio P22 and Helio 22 respectively, whereas, the Redmi 6 Pro is powered by Xiaomi’s beloved Snapdragon 625 SoC. For those unaware, the Mi A2 that was launched in India this month is actually a re-branded Mi 6X, and, the Mi A2 Lite which wasn’t launched by Xiaomi in India is a re-branded Redmi 6 Pro. So in a way, those who missed the Mi A2 Lite in India will get it soon, but, it will run MIUI instead of stock Android.
