    There are claims from users on the MIUI forums via GSMArena that the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A firmware development has been suspended quietly by the company. Eventually, both the devices will miss out on the latest iteration of the Android OS. The forum post notes "Change of Plan, Suspension of Recruitment".

    Xiaomi launched these smartphones with Android 8.0 Oreo but it was assured that these smartphones will get the MIUI 10 update based on Android 9 Pie. While the Oreo-based MIUI 10 arrived on these phones, these did not get the Android 9 Pie upgrade till date. Now, given that the Android Pie firmware development has been called off, we can expect the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A to continue receiving the MIUI updates.
