What’s common and what’s not


Xiaomi’s Redmi series is the most popular in the company’s family of phones and today, it just added three new members to the Indian market: Redmi 6, Redmi 6A, and Redmi 6 Pro. The latter isn’t all that new to keen followers because it’s actually the same device as the Android One-totting Mi A2 Lite, only that it has MIUI on top of stock Android 8.1 Oreo.

Perhaps what is proving to be a bit confusing for consumers is the difference between the Redmi 6 and the Redmi 6A. To help you around these two, let’s do a small comparison to find out what’s common between them and what’s not.

To get a better picture of this, here’s a table showing the specs and features of the two phones, the similarities and differences all in one place.
