Redmi K20 Pro, Redmi K20: What to expect?
Xiaomi is sly with its marketing tactics such as the Flagship Killer 2.0 tagline directed at OnePlus. We don’t want to get into the brand war. Even so, we feel the jab is rightfully shot due to its value proposition. To recall, Redmi K20 Pro, the bigger one of the duo features Snapdragon 855 chipset, upto 8GB RAM and 256GB storage, 4000mAh battery, in-display fingerprint scanner, and a 48MP camera, amongst many of its highlights.
In China, Redmi K20 Pro starts at Yuan 2499 (roughly Rs. 24,900) going up to Yuan 2999 (roughly Rs. 29,900) and the Redmi K20 starts at Yuan 1999 (roughly Rs. 19,900). Xiaomi is yet to reveal the Indian price. The company has recently announced a special Marvel Hero Avenger edition of K20 Pro in China. We could expect it to arrive in India as well.
