Officially Launched

Redmi K20 & Redmi K20 Pro Flagship Smartphones Launched in China

Earlier this year, Xiaomi made Redmi as an independent brand in China. For the very first time, the company launched the Redmi-branded mobile accessories and even a washing machine. Today, Redmi is entering the flagship smartphone segment with the all-new Redmi K20 series. As expected, the company announced Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro smartphones. The devices come with a 3D curved glass body and feature gradient film to offer beautiful looking gradient finish.

Talking about the Redmi K20 Pro, it comes with a 6.39-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. While the thin bezel on top measures just 2.1mm, the bottom bezel thickness is reduced to 3.8mm. With no notch or bezels, the display on this device offers 91.9% screen-to-body ratio. The device comes with VDE certified protection to block harmful Blue light and also supports hardware-based DC Dimming feature. Under the hood, the device comes powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform coupled with Kryo 485 CPU and Adreno 640 GPU.

The Redmi K20 Pro is said to have scored 388,803 on Antutu. It runs on Android 9.0 Pie based MIUI 10 out of the box. Redmi also added Game Turbo 2.0 for enhanced performance while playing games. The device is also equipped with 8-layer Graphite Heat Sink for better heat dissipation. On the rear, the Redmi K20 Pro sports triple camera setup featuring 48MP wide-angle sensor with f/1.75 aperture, 13MP ultra-wide-angle sensor with f/2.4 aperture, and an 8MP telephoto sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The Mi 9 SE launched in the beginning of this year also came with the same triple camera system.

While the device supports 960 fps slow-motion video recording, there is no OIS for any of three sensors. For selfies, the pop-up camera on the top features a 20MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture and comes with a sapphire lens. It is backed by a 4,000mAh non-removable battery and supports 27W fast charging. It measures 156.7 x 74.3 x 8.8 mm and weighs 191 grams. For the very first, Redmi is also adding Hi-Fi audio chip for superior audio output. Coming to the Redmi K20, the device looks exactly same as the Redmi K20 Pro. However, it comes powered by the 8nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 Mobile Platform.
