In last few days, Redmi has been sharing a number of teaser posters on the media, confirming a lot of features and specs of the upcoming flagship.
The posters confirm that the Redmi K20 will come with the Snapdragon 855, a 4000mAh battery, 48MP primary camera, liquid cooling with Game Turbo 2.0, a pop-up selfie camera, and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The Redmi K20’s back has also been shown off in a poster, with a very different finish from what we’ve seen on any other smartphone. I’m not entirely certain if I like it or not, but it’s definitely different, I’ll give it that.
Redmi is gearing up to launch its first ever flagship smartphone in India pretty soon after teasing it over the last month. The device, which was rumored to be called the Redmi X, will be called the Redmi K20 instead, and as we near the launch of the phone, details and leaks around the device are steadily increasing in number (and hopefully, in accuracy as well). So here’s everything we know so far about the upcoming Redmi flagship smartphone.
According to the rumor mill, the Redmi K20 will come with a 6.39-inch AMOLED display, and if the teaser video that Redmi put up on Weibo a while back is any hint, it’ll be a notchless display with a pop-up selfie camera.
The phone is also expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform, which is pretty much a necessity for the smartphone if it is to call itself a flagship in 2019. Other than that, rumors suggest that the 855 SoC will be paired with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB storage.
Redmi K20 Launch Date and Price
Redmi is all set to launch the K20 on May 28. But alongside that, the company is also said to announce the K20 Pro, and its price has just leaked online. According to reports, the Redmi K20 will sell for between CNY2,000 ($290) – CNY4,000 ($579).
Redmi K20 Pro
A poster revealing the prices of all the variants of the K20 Pro was shared on Chinese social network Weibo. If these prices are true, then you will have to shell out CNY2,599 ($377) for the 6GB/64GB variant, CNY2,799 ($406) for the 6GB/128GB version, and CNY2,999 ($435) for the top-end model coming with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.
Redmi is yet to confirm the launch of the K20 Pro on May 28, but it has confirmed some features of the vanilla K20 like Snapdragon 855, triple camera setup, and 960 FPS slow-mo video recording.
