Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro announced: Everything you need in a flagship for under $400


Redmi has been teasing its Redmi K20 for several weeks now, but the company has finally revealed all at a launch event in China. And we’ve actually got two phones, namely the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro.

Starting with the Redmi K20 Pro, it offers a rather fetching glass back, as well as a full-screen 6.39-inch OLED display (2,340 x 1,080) with an in-display fingerprint sensor. The full-screen design is enabled thanks to a 20MP pop-up camera, with Redmi claiming it pops up in 0.8 seconds. In a nice touch, Redmi adds that you can also choose from one of six pop-up sounds.

It wouldn’t be a flagship without impressive core specs, but the brand indeed confirmed a Snapdragon 855 chipset and a 4,000mAh battery with 27 watt fast charging. The company says fast charging will take the device to 100 percent in 73 minutes. Other notable features include Game Turbo 2.0, NFC support, and a 3.5mm earphone port.

Switching to the triple rear camera setup, we already know that the main shooter is a 48MP camera (Sony IMX586, f/1.75). But the firm has also confirmed an 8MP 2x telephoto sensor (f/2.4 ) as well as a 13MP f/2.4 ultra-wide camera (124.8 degree field of view).

The Redmi K20 Pro will be available in red and blue gradient colorways, as well as a “carbon fiber black” option. Xiaomi’s phone starts at 2,499 yuan (~$362) for the 6GB/64GB model, 2,599 yuan (~$376) for the 6GB/128GB variant, 2,799 yuan (~$405) for the 8GB/128GB model, and 2,999 yuan (~$434) for the 8GB/256GB variant. Redmi is also selling a gamepad attachment for 179 yuan (~$26), attaching to the left side of the device.

What about the standard K20?

Xiaomi’s vanilla Redmi K20 looks very similar to the Pro model, but it’s a step below the Pro model in several areas. The key differences are a Snapdragon 730 chipset, a 48MP IMX582 main camera (a new Sony sensor?), and 18 watt fast charging. Otherwise, the standard K20 also packs a 13MP ultra wide shooter, an 8MP depth sensor, and a 4,000mAh battery.

The vanilla K20 starts at 1,999 yuan (~$289) for the 6GB/64GB model, while the 6GB/128GB variant is available for 2,099 yuan (~$304).

Redmi also revealed a price for the recently revealed Redmi 7A. The model, which offers a Snapdragon 439 chipset and p2i splash-proof coating, starts at just 549 yuan (~$79) for the 2GB/16GB variant, and 599 yuan (~$87) for the 2GB/32GB option.
