Key Specs and Details K20
The K20 comes with a similar design and camera setup. However, there are a couple of downgrades in comparison to the Pro variant.
Powering the K20 is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 Octa-Core Processor and the Adreno 618 GPU. The processor comes with 8 Cores and the performance cores are clocked at 2.2 GHz.
The AMOLED display lacks DC Dimming (helps in lowering flickering at lower brightness values). Also, we get 18 Watts Charging support instead of the 27 watts on the Pro version.
Another, minor change in the cameras is the presence of IMX 582 sensor on the Redmi K20, instead of the IMX 586 on Pro version.
However, both the devices ship with 18 Watts Charger, you need to buy the 27 Watts Charger separately.
Both the phones are superb value for money and we can’t wait to get our hands on these new beauties from Xiaomi.
