Xiaomi has launched the specs loaded and feature-rich K20 and K20 Pro in India today. The K20 is available for a starting price of Rs. 21,999 and the K20 Pro is available for Rs. 27,999, Both the mobiles will go on sale on Flipkart, Mi.com starting 24th July 2019.
The K20 and K20 Pro are both highly anticipated mobiles and come with incredible specs and highlight features.
Let’s Check Out Top Features and Specs of Redmi K20 Pro and K20:
1). Incredible Aura Prime Design
The most noticeable thing about the new K20 Pro and K20 is the Auro Prime design. The design is visually appealing and is unlike any other mobile in the market. The unique flame texture and the glass build makes both the devices look premium.
All three colors (Glacier Blue, Flame Red, Carbon Black), looks gorgeous, and it is difficult to pick up a favorite color. If you plan to use a transparent case, it will be worth to go for either the blue or the red version.
The phones are made from glass and are slippery, and it will be prudent to use them with a case.
The front side is full view display, without any notches, and we get the best gaming and multimedia experience. Both the devices come with Pop-Up selfie cameras that are tested to work for 300,000 times.
So, reliability is not a big issue.
Lastly, the phones are a bit bulky, measures 8.8 mm in thickness and weigh 191 grams. Thin phones are dead!
2). Fast Processors – Snapdragon 855/Snapdragon 730
The Redmi K20 Pro comes with the Flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 (7Nm) Octa-Core Processor with a clock speed of 2.84 GHz and has Adreno 640 GPU. It is the same processor as used in the Oneplus 7 Pro, Asus 6Z or the Oneplus 7.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 offers unparalleled performance in gaming and day to day tasks and has an insane Antutu Score of 384,230.
On the other hand, the Redmi K20 comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 (8 Nm) Octa-Core Processor with a maximum clock speed of 2.2 GHz. The Snapdragon 730 scores 218,625 on the Antutu benchmark.
Notably, the Snapdragon 730 is 40% faster than the SD 710 used in the Realme 10 (Antutu Score 156,000) but is about 76% slower than the Snapdragon 855.
There is 6 GB or 8 GB of DDR4 Ram to ensure your mobile is lag-free even after opening several Apps simultaneously.
3). Monster GPU for Gaming (Adreno 640 & Adreno 618)
There is Adreno 640 on the K20 Pro and the Adreno 618 on the Redmi K20, and both are excellent when it comes to handling games. You can easily play high-end games such as PUBG or Fortnite on these phones at high or ultra settings.
The SD 855 (Adreno 640) gives you the best performance, can max out the latest games with ease. Both processors are energy efficient and made from the latest 7Nm/8Nm manufacturing process, so there is no need to worry about excessive heating.
4). Triple Rear Cameras & 20MP Pop-Up Front Selfie Camera
Triple cameras are in fashion, and every mobile manufacturer is added these to latest offerings. Both the mobiles come with the nearly similar camera setup.
The primary camera on the Redmi K20 uses the tried and test 48MP SonyIMX 586 sensor and has f/1.75 aperture lens that is good for both daylight and night time photography.
The secondary camera comes with a 13 Megapixel resolution and has a 124-degree wide-angle lens that can help you click better landscape shots. The third lens is an 8 MP shooter (Telephoto lens with 2X Optical Zoom) with f/2.4 aperture that helps in improving portrait images.
Notably, the primary sensor on the Redmi K20 is the Sony IMX 582 instead of the IMX 586 on the pro-version. There is not going to be a considerable change in terms of the visual quality of images, but we can expect some differences.
If you love making videos, you can record 4K-60FPS videos or even try out the 960 FPS slow motion.
Additionally, there is a nifty post-AI processing feature that allows you to change the lighting in your image post clicking.
Lastly, for selfies, we have got the stylish pop-up selfie camera with 20-megapixel resolution.
Cameras on this phone are superb! Check Samples from Sony IMX 586 used in the Redmi Note 7 Pro.

5). MIUI 10 and Android Pie 9.0
The phone comes with the MIUI 10 and also has the Android Pie 9.0. Moreover, Xiaomi has said that these devices are first in line to get the Android Q Beta from the company.
Apart from the silly Ads, MIUI 10 offers fluid experience.
6). 4000mAH Battery Capacity and 18 Watts Fast Charging
Both the mobiles come with 4000 mAH capacity battery, which is more than sufficient to last all day. Besides, there is an 18 Watts Charger which comes inside the box of both phones.
The Redmi K20 Pro even supports 27 Watts Fast Charging, and you can buy a 27 Watts charger separately for Rs. 1000 from Xiaomi India.
Now, this looks utterly stupid. Xiaomi should have bundled the 27 Watts charger with the K20 Pro, to avoid an unnecessary purchase.
7). 6.39 inch FHD+ AMOLED Display with HDR Support
There is a 6.39 inch Full HD+ AMOLED display which comes with vibrant colors, decent viewing angles and has the maximum brightness of 600 Nits.
The display has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, thanks to the pop-up camera. The AMOLED panel is definitely superior to the IPS LCD panel used on phones like Asus 6Z. Moreover, both the front and rear side is protected using Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
Further, it boasts of a 92% screen to body ratio, which makes the viewing experience even better.
What’s more, Xiaomi says the phone comes with the HDR support and also has the Widevine L1 certifications to ensure you can watch HD content on Netflix or Amazon Prime.
They have learned the lesson from POCO F1.
The K20 Pro also comes with the DC dimming feature, which reduces the flickering of the display at the low brightness levels. Sorry K20 buyers you don’t get this.
8). 7th Gen In-Display Fingerprint Scanner
Xiaomi has a seventh-generation in-display fingerprint scanner which allegedly works faster and unlocks the device swiftly.
The disadvantage of Pop-Up cameras is that you miss on the fast face unlocking experience.
9.) 3.5 mm headphone Jack & Superior Audio
Xiaomi is still keeping the 3.5 mm headphone jack alive, and both devices come with it.
Ohh if we remember, Xiaomi tried this with the Xiaomi Mi A2. A royale failure.
10). Splash Proof (P2i Rating), NFC and USB Type C Port
The Redmi K20 Pro and K20 are splash-proof and comes with the P2i rating. They are not waterproof but can handle a bit of splash. Also, the phones come with advanced connectivity options such as Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB Type-C Port, and Dual VOLTE.
11). Bonus Feature – No Ads for K20 and K20 Pro
For the uninitiated, Xiaomi shows some Ads in all its mobiles sold in India to make money. But in case of K20 and K20 Pro, Xiaomi has decided that they will not show Ads.
The announcement has come later in the evening after the launch, probably due to the back-lash, that company received due to higher pricing of K20.
So, these were the top 11 features of the newly launched Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro and K20.
