Xiaomi has announced the launch of its two new entry-level smartphones, the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A. The previous offerings in the series were best-sellers, so these new ones have rather large boots to fill. Of course, there’s the pesky little issue of the devices featuring MediaTek processors.

At an event in China earlier a few days ago, Xiaomi announced the launch of its two new entry-level devices, the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A.

The Redmi 6 sports a 5.45-inch display HD+ display. That isn’t really surprising considering the fact that the SoC it features, the new Helio P22, only has support for that display resolution. On the flip side, a 5.45-inch 18:9 display puts the device well into compact territory, much like previous devices in the series. The Helio P22 is a 12 nm SoC and although it’s made by MediaTek, its dual rear camera and AI support make it the best possible choice for the device.

The Redmi 6 features a dual rear camera setup (12 MP + 5 MP, f/2.2), and a 5 MP selfie camera with f/2.2 aperture. It’s obviously not meant to be a photo-centric device. The device comes in two variants, one with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, and another with 4 GB of RAM and 63 GB of storage.

The Redmi 6A sports the same 5.45-inch HD+ display as the Redmi 6. It is, however, powered by a Helio A22 SoC, and features just 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. SoC and storage aside, another major difference between the 6A and the 6 is the lack of dual rear cameras. The Redmi 6A sports a single 13 MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and a 5 MP selfie camera also with f/2.2 aperture. Unlike the Redmi 6, it doesn’t feature a fingerprint sensor.

The Redmi 6A definitely has a lot of work to do. Its predecessor, the Redmi 5A, is one of the best-selling devices in the world, and the Redmi 6A will attempt to take on that mantle.

The 3/32 GB Redmi 6 has an MSRP of US$125, the 4/64 GB model has a tag of US$160, and the Redmi 6A will set buyers back about US$95.
