Redmi 6 Pro is available in two RAM/internal storage variants - 3GB RAM/32GB internal storage and 4GB RAM/64GB internal storage priced at Rs 10,999 and Rs 12,999, respectively. It comes in three color options - Blue, Gold, and Rose Gold.

The Mi 8 Pro originally debuted in China this May, and it's easily the most exciting of the bunch. So now you can grab the Redmi 6 on Flipkart and Redmi 6 Pro on Amazon without any flash sale. The Redmi 6A was the first smartphone from the lot to be made available under the open sale model earlier this week. The 3GB RAM and 64GB storage model is priced at Rs. 9,499 while the 32GB storage model costs Rs. 7,999 (~$111).

The Redmi 6 sports a 5.45-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 720x1440 pixels along with an aspect ratio of 18:9. Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by an octa-core Media Tek Helio P22 processor, clubbed with 3GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of storage. There's no headphone jack, sadly, and no microSD card slot either.

Walmart releases its Black Friday ad for holiday shoppers
Oh, and Walmart's bitter opponent to the USA and global retail crowns has nothing in the pipeline for iPhone XR shoppers/bargain hunters.

On the photography front, you'll find a single-lens 13MP camera on the rear of the device and a 5MP camera around the front, both of which support Xiaomi's AI-fuelled portrait mode.

The Band 3 is £30, or bundled free of charge with any Xiaomi device.

Xiaomi's Redmi 6A is a lower-end offering; there no full-screen design on offer, with the handset instead packing a 5.45in HD LCD display with a sizable bezel both above and below. The motivation you'd get from a Fitbit is also missing, plus it can also be hard to read the screen in direct sunlight. The smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, paired with Adreno 506 GPU, 3GB/ 4GB of RAM, and 32GB/ 64GB of onboard storage. It runs on Android 8.1 Oreo.
