after an ample amount of leaks and renders hovering over the Internet, we finally have arrived on the launch day. Xiaomi just officially announced the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro, two of the highly anticipated devices as of now. The company markets the devices as “Flagship Killer 2.0”. Redmi started off with a backstory of budget devices and budget-friendly products but has slowly started entering into the flagship market competing against the big fish.
By now, almost each and every aspect of the device was known to everyone out there. However, it’s our job to confirm that and here we go. The K20′ Series comes with 48MP sensors at the rear as main cameras. The K20 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC whereas, the K20 Pro is powered by the latest and greatest from Qualcomm, Snapdragon 855 SoC.
The device sports a 6.39′ full HD+ display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The device as you can see in the images is bezel-less and hence, the selfie camera is a motorized pop-up camera which is similar to the one on the OnePlus 7 Pro. The cameras consist of a 20MP sensor with AI capabilities.
As for the optics situated at the rear, the device(K20 Pro) sports a rear triple camera setup which features a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor along with an 8MP telephoto sensor and a 13MP wide angle sensor. The same specifications go for the K20 however the Sony IMX582 sensor is being used here.
The device is capable of shooting 960fps slow-mo recording. As for the battery, the Redmi K20 Pro comes with a 4,000mAh battery with fast charging, of course. It also brings in the 27W standard which we recently saw on the BlackShark 2. The K20, on the other hand, comes with an 18W fast charging capability.
The Redmi K20 series brings something new to the table with its GameTurbo 2.0 tech, which is targeted towards the youth of today who are a bit into mobile gaming, especially with the rise of PUBG Mobile and Call Of Duty Mobile. This mode boosts performance as well as it implements a smart switch between WiFi to 4G for smooth connectivity in case your ISP keeps you hanging.
The Redmi K20 is priced at CNY 1,999 for the 6/64GB variant and CNY 2,099 for the 6/128GB variant. Whereas the K20 Pro pricing starts at CNY 2,499 (INR 25,200)for its base variant and goes up to CNY 2,999 (INR 30,250) based upon storage.
