Redmi K20 and K20 Pro Launching In India On July 17th

On: July 5, 2019

Xiaomi fans in India have been waiting for the arrival of the Redmi K20 series since its launch in China in May this year. Last month, Xiaomi India MD Manu Kumar Jain had confirmed the launch of the smartphones within six weeks in the country. Now the company has officially announced that it will unveil the Redmi K20 series on July 17th, 2019. The smartphones are being branded as ‘Flagship Killer 2.0’ by the company. 

The Redmi K20 is expected to come with the same specs and features as its China variant. The K20 Pro is the flagship among the two variants while the rest of the specs are more or less the same as the standard version. Both the K20 and K20 Pro sport FHD+ AMOLED displays measuring 6.39-inches. The devices offer a 91.9 percent screen-to-body ratio and feature a pop-up selfie camera along with an in-display fingerprint scanner. 

On the hardware front, the Redmi K20 is differentiated from the Pro variant in terms of the processor. The standard version is powered by a Snapdragon 730 chipset while the latter houses the flagship Snapdragon 855 processor. Both the devices can be configured with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. While both the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro are backed by a 4,000mAh battery unit, the former supports 18W rapid charging whereas the Pro variant offers a faster 27W charging. 

In the camera department, the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro are equipped with nearly identical front and triple rear camera modules. On the back, there is a 48MP main Sony IMX586 sensor (on the standard variant it is Sony IMX582) accompanied by a 13MP super-wide-angle lens and an 8MP telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom. On the front, both devices are fitted with a 20MP selfie shooter. The camera offers various features for enhancing the images. 

Recently, Xiaomi launched the K20 Pro in Marvel Hero Limited Edition in China, which comes with a custom Avengers theme and case in a special gift box. However, there is no word on whether we will get the limited edition variant in India. 

We expect the Redmi K20 series to be priced between Rs 20,000-25,000 in India. The smartphone will take on the likes of the OnePlus 7, ASUS 6Z and upcoming Realme X in India.
