Xiaomi has launched it’s latest smartphone Redmi 6 and 6A in the Indian market. The company has also launched a Pro version. Xiaomi says that the trio of smartphones will feature a dual VoLTE support in India.

And in the circumstance when there’s no 4G coverage, 2G and 3G services will still be available. The Redmi 6 series smartphones have already been launched in China and now make their way to India.
