Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi today unveiled the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro. The new K-series is Redmi’s budget flagship offering packing impressive specs and features.
Redmi K20 Pro
The K20 Pro is the flagship smartphone featuring a 6.39-inch FHD+ 19.5:9 aspect ratio AMOLED display with 600-nit brightness. There’s no notch on the K20 Pro and it features a 91.9 percent screen-to-body ratio with 2.1mm slim bezels.
The phone features a 3D curved design, with the black variant featuring a kevlar pattern and the blue and red variant featuring a flame pattern.
The 8.8mm thick handset features Snapdragon 855 Mobile chipset running at 2.84GHz, Adreno 640 GPU, 6/8GB RAM, 64/128GB UFS 2.1 storage, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C, 3.5mm headphone jack, and more. To keep the chipset cool, Xiaomi is using 8 layers of 3D graphite sheet.
The rear of the phone houses a triple camera setup which includes Sony’s 48MP shooter with f/1.75 aperture, 8MP telephoto lens with 1.12um large pixels and f/2.4 aperture, and a 13MP 124.8-degree ultra-wide sensor with f/2.4 aperture. At the front, there’s a 20MP f/2.0 pop-up selfie shooter.
The 8th generation in-display fingerprint sensor features 15 percent larger recognition area along with a 3P lens. Overall, this new sensor should be faster and more accurate than previous in-display fingerprint sensors.
There is also a 4000mAh battery with 27W fast charging that can charge the phone to 58 percent in just 30 minutes.
The Redmi K20 Pro is available in three colors: Flame Red, Glacier Blue, and Carbon Fiber Black colors. The prices start from RMB 2499 for the 6GB RAM/64GB storage and RMB 2599 for the 6GB/128GB variant.
Alongside the Redmi K20 Pro, the Redmi K20 was also announced. It features largely the same specs as the Pro variant but comes with a slightly weaker Snapdragon 730 chipset running at 2.2GHz and sporting an Adreno 618 GPU. While the phone also comes with a 4000mAh battery, it only has 18W fast charging support.
Prices for the Redmi K20 starts from RMB 1999 for the 6GB/64GB variant, with the 6GB/128GB variant coming in at RMB 2099.
The Redmi K20 and K20 Pro go on sale in China from early next month. The handsets are likely to also make their way to India and other parts of the world over the next few weeks.
