Xiaomi is doing a great job in the budget segment of Indian market by launching a new smartphone probably every month. Again they have launched three new smartphones called Redmi 6, 6A and Redmi 6 Pro. This is the welcome of Redmi 6 series to India. Initially when Mi A2 was launched and the lite version was not coming to India but now they just launched the Redmi 6 Pro here. The highlights are AU based face unlock, 18:9/19:9 panel, MIUI 9 and Android Oreo. As the Mi A2 lite is the same Redmi 6 Pro then why it matters to get launched now and not then at the time of Mi A2 launch.

Your smartphones are not making any sense in the market. It seems like Xiaomi just wants to fill the market with their smartphones whether they are any good or not.
