To recall, the 32GB storage option went on open sale in November itself, and moving forward even the 16GB variant will be available openly.

Just earlier today, Xiaomi announced a Redmi 6 permanent price cut in India as well. The 3GB RAM + 32GB storage variant is now priced at Rs. 7,999 and the 3GB RAM + 64GB storage variant is priced at Rs. 8,999.
