  • Android Authority received an invite to a Xiaomi press event in India on September 5.
  • The invite alludes to the number six — is it a Xiaomi Redmi 6 or a Xiaomi Redmi Note 6, though?
  • It’s likely that we’ll see the Xiaomi Redmi 6, Redmi 6A, and/or Redmi 6 Pro, though the Redmi Note 6 is possible as well.

Xiaomi is launching new smartphones left and right. We just saw the Xiaomi Mi A2 (which was kind of “meh”) and also the first release from its sub-brand Poco with the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 (which we are pretty excited about).

Now, Android Authority just received an invitation to a Xiaomi press event happening in India on September 5. The invitation heavily alludes to the number six, although it’s not clear what that could mean.

On one hand, it could be that the company is launching the Xiaomi Redmi 6, Redmi 6A, and/or Redmi 6 Pro. However, it’s also feasible that Xiaomi will reveal the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 and Note 6 Pro, which is also slated for a release soon.

Which one is it?

We obviously won’t know for certain until September 5, but it’s a safe bet that it’s the Redmi 6 line. The Redmi series is very popular in India and the Redmi 6 line would likely solidify or increase Xiaomi’s market share in the country.

However, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 was also incredibly popular in India, but it’s much more likely that the Redmi Note 6 wouldn’t come out until later this year or even very early 2019.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments what you expect to see on September 5.
