Redmi K20 Pro and Redmi K20 to launch as Poco F2 in India
A couple of hours ago, the well-known tipster Ishan Agarwal announced that his sources had finally confirmed the name of the new flagship smartphone Redmi. As it was reported this morning, the smartphone will receive the official name Redmi K20 Pro. The Pro variant will also come together with the non-pro or vanilla version K20.
The Redmi flagship smartphone is one of the most anticipated devices of the year, with Xiaomi for the first time including top-end specifications in its Redmi lineup.
The Redmi K20 series of flagship phones will release on the same time as scheduled for Oneplus’ new flagship phones – Oneplus 7 Pro and the Oneplus 7.
There is no doubt that the Redmi phones will stand tall against the Oneplus 7 due to its pricing and pose serious competition in every specification when stacked side by side.
The Redmi flagships powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processors is also reported to launch in Indian market as Poco F2 phones. However, other than the names and the fact that it will be powered by the top-end Qualcomm SoC, we don’t know any other details about it.
According to the report, it is possible that the phones could come with a 6.39-inch AMOLED display and multiple variants of RAM, ranging from 6GB or 8GB and storage, ranging from 64GB, 128GB and even 256GB.
In the earlier report we mentioned, which first tipped the Redmi K20 Pro name, a leak showed a plastic cover that’s usually wrapped around a new phone with its main features listed – these included a 4000mAh battery and a possibility of a 48-megapixel camera. It’s also rumoured to have a 32-megapixel pop-up selfie camera too.
Xiaomi has confirmed the Redmi flagship will have an in-display fingerprint sensor, a super-wide angle lens, and offer a 2-day battery life. The smartphone has also been teased to sport a pop-up selfie camera.
This phone was earlier rumoured to be called the Redmi X, though Redmi GM Lu Weibing confirmed that it won’t be the case. Also, considering that a few Xiaomi phones do support Android Q Beta 3, it’s possible that this new flagship would also be added to the list.
The Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro will most likely be targeted at those looking for a top-end SoC, at a lower price. This means it will go up against phones such as the OnePlus 7 and Asus ZenFone 6, which are both confirmed to have a Snapdragon 855 SoC onboard.
