Xiaomi is launching the Redmi 6/6A and Redmi 6 Pro in India on Sep. 5

Xiaomi launched the Mi A2 in India earlier this month and its sub-brand POCO unveiled the F1 a few weeks ago, and it looks like the Chinese manufacturer is just getting started. Invites sent out to the media suggest Xiaomi is set to launch the Redmi 6 series in India next week. The Redmi 6. Redmi 6A, and the Redmi 6 Pro are all set to make their debut in the country at the event.

The Redmi 6 and 6A are notable for using MediaTek chipsets — Helio P22 and A22 respectively — and the Redmi 6 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 625, which we've already seen in nearly a dozen Xiaomi phones to date. The Redmi series is the best-selling lineup in India, with the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro amassing five million sales in just under four months.

The Redmi series is also crucial to Xiaomi's success in India as it seeks to extend its lead in the market. In fact, four Redmi phones accounted for 26% of the total smartphone shipments in the country last quarter, and it's clear that Xiaomi is intent on continuing that streak.

With the launch just under a week away, we should know all about the pricing and availability of the Redmi 6 series shortly.
