After weeks of rumours, the Xiaomi Redmi 6 is now official. The handset was unveiled in China earlier today, and the new Redmi 6 brings some good features at a very low price. One of the significant changes with the Redmi 6 is the dual camera setup, which is an excellent proposition in this price range. The Redmi 5, while launched at the similar price a few months ago, featured a single camera on the back.

The Redmi 6 has a 5.45-inch HD+ display and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with MIUI 9 on top. The phone is powered by an Octa-Core MediaTek Helio P22 chipset and comes with two memory options – 3GB RAM with 32GB storage and 4GB RAM with 64GB storage, with support for microSD cards up to 256GB.

Other features of the Redmi 6 include Hybrid dual SIM slot, 4G VoLTE, fingerprint sensor and dual microphones. It is backed by a 3,000mAh battery.

In addition to the Redmi 6, Xiaomi has also announced the launch of its new budget smartphone in the bestselling Redmi series, the Redmi 6A. It is a successor to the popular Redmi 5A which was one of the best selling Android smartphone in the first half of 2018, according to the Counterpoint Research.

Even though the phone offers excellent value for money – it comes with a 5.45-inch HD+ display in 18:9 aspect ratio and runs on MIUI 9 based on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. Powering the Redmi 6A is a quad-core MediaTek Helio A22 processor which is coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. There’s an option to expand the internal storage up to 256GB using a microSD card.

On the back, the Redmi 6A features the 13MP rear camera with an LED flash and support for AI Portrait mode. On the front, it comes with a 5MP selfie shooter. Other features of the Redmi 6A include Hybrid dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, 3.5mm audio jack, and dual microphones. Finally, the phone is backed by a 3000mAh battery.
