Xiaomi's feature-rich budget Android phones Redmi 6 and the Redmi 6A, which have been sold via flash sale since the debut in September, can now be finally purchased anytime on select online stores.

This is a welcome move by the company and fans will certainly appreciate the effort. It is now easier for consumers to get the Redmi phone during Diwali, which many consider an auspicious time to buy new things.
For the uninitiated, the Redmi 6 (review) and the 6A sport sturdy polycarbonate shell with a metallic finish on the back and on the front, they flaunt 5.45-inch HD+ (1440x720p) screen with 18:9 display aspect ratio, which guarantees cinematic viewing experience.
Inside, the Redmi 6 houses a MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core processor, Android Oreo-based MIUI 9.5 (MIUI 10 released), 3GB/4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB storage, a 12MP+5MP dual camera with Bokeh blur feature, a 5MP front camera with face unlock, fingerprint sensor and a 3,000mAh battery.
