The Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A have yet to be made available in regions like India, but you already have the MIUI 9 Global ROM being made available for them. This Global ROM would allow users (that import from China) to load a ROM that has better localization than the default Chinese ROM that would have come preloaded on these devices. The existence of this ROM could also indicate that the devices are heading to regions outside of China.
The Redmi 6 (codename: cereus) gets MIUI update version v18.104.22.168.OCGMIFD based on Android Oreo 8.1 with an update size of 1.2GB. On the other hand, the Redmi 6A (codename: cactus) gets MIUI update version v22.214.171.124.OCBMIFD based on Android Oreo 8.1 with an update size of 1.2GB.
