Fresh off from the launch of the Redmi 7A in India on Thursday, Xiaomi has now revealed the exact launch date of its much-awaited Redmi K20 series. The Chinese electronics maker has been teasing the impending launch of Redmi K20 from quite a while now and has successfully managed to generate the kind of hype it needs. The Redmi K-series currently has two phones in the running-- Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro.

The Pro variant has been generating quite an uproar majorly due to the flagship hardware it packs in that could give many OEMs a run for their money. The company just has to price it right which is what they're known for.

Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro specifications

The K20 Pro features a Super AMOLED display that measures 6.39-inches diagonally and has a Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution. The phone has a minimal bezel setup as it uses a pop-up motorized solution for the selfie camera which gives it a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The screen supports HDR playback and is topped by a layer of Gorilla Glass 5.

Under the hood, the K20 Pro is powered by top-of-the-line Snapdragon 855 chipset with an octa-core CPU and Adreno 640 as the graphics chip. This is paired with 6GB/8GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB/256GB storage which isn't expandable.

The main camera setup consists of three sensors-- a primary 48MP camera that uses Sony IMX586 sensor, an 8MP telephoto sensor with 2X optical zoom and a 13MP ultra-wide camera. The phone has a 20MP front-facing camera for selfies that is housed in the pop-up camera module.

Redmi K20 Pro also has an in-display fingerprint sensor and comes with a 4,000mAh battery that supports 27W fast charging. It will be available in three gradient colours-- Carbon Black, Flame Red and Glacier Blue.
