Now you don't have to wait for Redmi 6A, Xiaomi puts it on open sale

The Redmi 6A is now available for purchase on Mi.com and Amazon.in from January 12. Xiaomi also slashed prices of the smartphone across all variants.

The Redmi 6A is Xiaomi's most affordable smartphone in the country. And according to IDC's report, it is also the bestselling smartphone in India since it launched, treading on the footprints of its predecessor, i.e. Redmi 5A. Therefore, it's obvious that the Redmi 6A is one of the most important smartphones for Xiaomi this year to lead the charts and keep the cash registers flowing. The only obstruction to Xiaomi's smooth sailing towards success is its flash sale model for the Redmi 6A. Xiaomi is now getting rid of this obstruction by putting the Redmi 6A on open sale.

In a recent tweet, Xiaomi announced that they will be putting the Redmi 6A on open sale. This means that consumers will be able to buy the Redmi 6A without waiting for flash sales. The Redmi 6A will be available on Mi.com and Amazon.in starting January 12. Previously, the Redmi 6A was available under the flash sale model and was put on sale in limited numbers. With the open sale, consumers interested in the Redmi 6A will no more have to wait to get their hands on their smartphone.
