Apart from the price discounts, there are other offers in tow as well for the Redmi 6-series phones.
The Chinese smartphone maker announced the limited time price cut on the Redmi 6A, Redmi 6 and the Redmi 6 Pro via a tweet from the official Redmi India Twitter account, and also took a dig at Samsung's freshly launched Galaxy M-series smartphones by asking millennial smartphone users to choose wisely. However, the company has not disclosed the platform-specific offers such as banking discounts, EMI offers, exchange plans, etc. for the three phones.
The Redmi 6 Pro's 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant will be available at Rs. 10,999, down from its launch price of Rs. 12,999.
