Redmi 6, Redmi 6 Pro, and Redmi 6A all may see a launch in India soon. Manu Kumar Jain, Xiaomi Global VP and Xiaomi India Managing Director, on Thursday shared a tweet that hinted at the imminent launch of these smartphones. To recall, all three smartphones in the Redmi 6-Series were launched in June in China, with the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A launched by Xiaomi side-by-side, and the Redmi 6 Pro being unveiled a couple of weeks later. The Redmi 5 and Redmi 5A, the predecessors of the smartphones, were both very popular models in India, and the arrival of the new series is sure to be hotly anticipated. A separate invite was also shared, confirming the September 5 launchd ate.

In his tweet on Thursday, Jain said, “#DeshKeNayeSmartphones! Mi fans! We’ve got more than one for you! Coming very soon.” While this does not imply the launch of the Redmi 6-Series of smartphones, the tweet contains a video that shows the number 6, with three smartphone outlines behind it. Two of the smartphones feature no display notches, while the third one does – clearly pointing to the Redmi 6 Pro, which is the only one amongst the three to sport a display notch.
