Xiaomi earlier this week announced that the 32GB storage variant of the budget Redmi 6A smartphone would go on open sale across Amazon.in and Mi.com in India. However, it seems, that the top-end 64GB storage model of the Redmi 6 as well as both configurations of the Redmi 6 Pro are now available openly, without any flash sales in India. While both are available freely on Mi.com, the Redmi 6 is sold via Flipkart and the Redmi 6 Pro is sold on Amazon.in.
