This is a more budget version of the Xiaomi Redmi 6 and maybe the A added is supposed to stand for affordable I don’t know. What I do know is that it is cheaper and offers less in terms of specs, however, the Xiaomi Redmi 6A looks almost as stunning as the other phone.

Some of the noticeable difference is the absence of a fingerprint sensor here but still maintains the same screen resolution though. The question here is if the cut in price still offers a good value for your money.
