Update, August 14, 2019 (2:40AM ET): We saw the first European store listing for the Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro (Redmi K20 Pro) last week, courtesy of a Dutch retailer. Now, the Xiaomi Netherlands Facebook page has confirmed that the device is launching on August 20.
In fact, the Facebook page revealed that the device will launch in the Benelux markets (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg). Hopefully European consumers in other countries won’t have to wait too long for the device to hit their market.
In case you missed the original story below, the Dutch retailer listed the phone at a starting price of €429 (~$481) for the 6GB/64GB model, while the 6GB/128GB variant weighed in at €479 (~$537).
Original article, August 8, 2019 (2:24AM ET): The Redmi K20 Pro is arguably the best value for money smartphone of 2019, currently available in both China and India. We’ve already seen the standard K20 hit Europe earlier this year as the Mi 9T, but it looks like the Redmi K20 Pro is on the way too.
According to WinFuture, the Mi 9T Pro (also known as the Redmi K20 Pro) was listed on the website of Dutch retailer and official distributor Belsimpel.
The retailer lists the 6GB/64GB variant at €429 (~$481), which is significantly more expensive than the Indian starting price (~$406). Furthermore, Indian users get 128GB of storage as the base model. Need more storage? Well, the retailer lists the 128GB model at €479 (~$537).
This isn’t necessarily representative of the official Mi 9T Pro price for the rest of Europe, but I wouldn’t expect pricing to shift significantly in either direction when it officially launches. In any event, it still makes for one of the cheaper flagship phones in Europe.

The Mi 9T Pro packs a Snapdragon 855 chipset, 6.39-inch AMOLED screen with in-display fingerprint sensor, and a 4,000mAh battery with 27 watt charging. Xiaomi’s device also offers a 20MP pop-up selfie camera, a triple rear camera trio (48MP, 13MP ultra-wide, and 8MP 2x telephoto), and a 3.5mm port.
Our own Dhruv Bhutani praised the phone in his Redmi K20 Pro review, saying it’s the affordable flagship to beat.
“The Redmi K20 Pro is one of the best deals in smartphones right now. It undercuts the OnePlus 7 and Asus Zenfone 6 in price while offering similar specs,” he noted at the time.
