Redmi K20 and K20 pro official specifications and price

A few hours ago, Redmi officially announced their new flagship, the Redmi K20 Pro, as well as it’s mid-range brother, the Redmi K20. Both devices promise to offer excellent price-to-performance ration, so let us look at what they have to offer. Are these smartphones true flagship killers as they promised? Also, are there any good alternatives in the same price range? let’s take a look.

Redmi K20 Specifications
CPU: Snapdragon 730
RAM: 6GB or 8GB
Storage: 64GB, 128GB or 256GB
Screen size: 6.39 (2340 x 1080 resolution)
Screen type: AMOLED (manufacturer unclear at this time)
Back camera: 48MP + 8MP + 13MP
Front camera: 20MP
Other: In-display fingerprint reader, 4000mAh battery with 18W quick charge, NFC

Redmi K20 Pro specifications
CPU: Snapdragon 855
RAM: 6GB or 8GB
Storage: 64GB, 128GB or 256GB
Screen size: 6.39 (2340 x 1080 resolution)
Screen type: AMOLED (made by Samsung)
Back camera: 48MP + 8MP + 13MP
Front camera: 20MP
Other: In-display fingerprint reader, 4000mAh battery with 27W quick charge (18W charger included), NFC

As we can see, there few differences between the two. The most notable is the CPU. The K20 Pro went for the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 855 chipset while the K20 has a still very potent SD730, a high mid-range chipset. The Back cameras both have 48MP sensor for the main, but keep in mind that the K20 Pro has a better sensor: imx586 vs imx582. Another major difference, that may be overlooked by some, is the fact that the K20 does not have dual-frequency GPS. All in all, not too many differences, but the prices are approximately the same: 500 Chinese yuan (~72$)

Speaking of prices, below you find official pricing in China for all smartphones. Keep in mind that when they will be available globally some prices may change and some versions may not be available internationally. I also included pricing in USD using rate conversion.

6/646/1288/1288/256
K20¥ 1999 ($289)¥ 2099 ($304)N.A.¥ 2599 ($376)
K20 Pro¥ 2499 ($361)¥ 2599 ($376)¥ 2799 ($405)¥ 2999 ($434)

As we can see, those are excellent prices. There are cheaper mid-range options (the Redmi Note 7 comes in mind) but none offer such great spec. AMOLED screen devices with a good CPU and sufficient RAM usually set you back $500-$600, but somehow Redmi managed to half that price and still offer good specs. If you want a top speced device, the Redmi K20 Pro is a really good option. Yes, you will miss the UFS3 storage from the OnePlus 7 Pro or the 90Hz refresh rate screen from the Red Magic 3, but I don’t think it is worth the extra money spend just to get those. What is your opinion? Waiting for your answers in the comments.
