Xiaomi’s Redmi will be launching its first ever flagship smartphone on May 28th in China. As per the leaks, the company might launch two variants – Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro. The company has already confirmed a few key features of the device. The latest teaser image posted on Weibo confirms the Redmi K20 smartphone to sport 4,000mAh battery. Even the entry-level Redmi 7A spotted on TENAA also comes features the same 4,000mAh battery.
Recently, we have seen flagship smartphones like Nubia Red Magic 3 and ASUS Zenfone 6 coming with 5,000mAh battery. While there is no confirmation, the Pro variant might sport 5,000mAh battery. The promo video released last month teased the device with a complete bezel-less display and a pop-up selfie camera. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 also comes with a notch-less display, but it uses a slider mechanism to achieve that.
