The post goes on to explain how camera quality is subjective, and each time a phone is submitted with negative feedback, an engineer tries to replicate the exact conditions so it can be fixed. Two 6GB RAM variants with 64GB and 128GB of storage are priced at 2,499 Yuan ($361) and 2,599 Yuan ($376) in China.

Additionally, one can get the 6GB RAM variant in Mirror Grey color variant and the 8GB RAM model in both Mirror Grey and Red color variants. With a 3D gradient at the back, the smartphones feature a compact design with curved sides at back. There's minimal bezels at the top and bottom, along with no intrusions such as notch or punch hole in the display. So, what's your thoughts about the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro? Redmi K20 Pro will also be available in the previously teased Avengers Special edition with the Avengers 4 metal theme card and a limited mobile phone case. There is an in-display fingerprint scanner and also supports face unlock using the front camera. The device is powered by Octa core (2.84 GHz, Single core, Kryo 485 + 2.42 GHz, Tri core, Kryo 485 + 1.8 GHz, Quad core, Kryo 485) processor paired with 6 GB of RAM. Meanwhile, 8GB Ram with 128 GB variant is available at $405 while the 8GB RAM with 256 GB storage is available at $434. This includes optimizations for improved gaming, night vision mode for enhanced picture quality in dark situations, and a touch response rate of 71.25ms.

Sony's IMX586 sensor has already graced affordable phones like the Realme X and even other budget handsets from Xiaomi's Redmi sub-brand, so while it's perhaps no surprise to see it installed as the K20 Pro's main 48MP shooter, it's still a welcome inclusion.

At an event in China today, Redmi unveiled the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 pro along with their respective specifications and prices. Well, I don't under the reason for the addition of LED lights here, but it's okay. Thankfully, both Redmi K20 Pro and Redmi K20 comes with a dedicated 3.5mm headphone jack supporting Hi-Fi audio. The company has kept the build and hardware specs nearly the same, except for trading out the flagship chipset for a mid-range one. The smartphone is backed by a 6GB/8GB of RAM and 128/256GB of internal storage.


Running Android 9 Pie topped with MIUI 10, the smartphone gets the power from a 4000mAh battery with 27W fast charging support. Also, the prices will be astonishing, which is not a surprise since the Poco F1 nailed it with the pricing previous year.

Specifically, it is a 14-inch Full HD display with anti-glare coating and brightness level of 250nits. The smartphone is priced at 549 yuan for the 2GB+16GB variant and 599 yuan for the 2GB+32GB variant.

The OnePlus 7 release date has been set for June 4 in the United Kingdom, giving consumers the option of a more affordable new OnePlus device.
