It’s been a few days since we first heard about two new flagship grade devices from Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi. These new devices will be part of an entirely new series called the K-Series. The K-Series will eventually start with two devices called the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro. Both these devices are set to be officially announced on May 28 at an event in China. The K Series will also officially make it to India soon. Anyway, the reason you are reading yet another Redmi K20 related post is because of two significant developments earlier today. First, the complete specifications of both the handsets were revealed by Slashleaks and subsequently deleted. Secondly, senior Xiaomi officials shared the first ever image of the Redmi K20 Pro in a Weibo post. This was first reported by our friends at DroidShout.
Redmi K20: First Image Appears on Weibo
While we have been hearing about the K20 series for a while, there was not a single image of the devices out on the web until today. In a post earlier today, an image of the Redmi K20 Pro was posted on to Weibo by the official account of Redmi. The image was followed by a comment from senior Xiaomi officials Lu Weibing and Lei Jun asking the followers what they think of the design.
The image you saw on the header image of this article reveals that the Redmi K20 will feature a curved glass-clad rear panel. Note that as of now, we have only seen the rear panel of the device. Hopefully, we should be able to see the front panel of the device soon.
What is also evident from this image is that the Redmi K20 will come with triple rear cameras and a very fresh looking color scheme. Let us now take a look at the rest of the specifications of the Redmi K20 Series
Redmi K20, K20 Pro: Specifications, Features
The Redmi K20 and the K20 Pro will most likely feature identical specs except for their respective chipsets. The relatively affordable Redmi K20 is likely to feature a Snapdragon 710 chipset as opposed to the flagship grade Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 on the K20 Pro. There could also be differences in the amount of RAM and storage capacities.
Moving on, both the handsets will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner and a large 6.39-inch notchless display along with a pop-up front facing camera. The display is also likely to be an AMOLED panel with Full HD+ resolution in the 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
The primary camera at the rear uses the 48-megapixel IMX 586 sensor. The front-facing pop-up camera will use a 20-megapixel sensor. We still do not know the details of the other two cameras at the rear. There is a chance that at least one of the lenses would enable ultra wide-angle imaging.
The Redmi K20 series will also use a large 4000mAh with support for 27W fast charging Being a Xiaomi, and it will run a new version of MIUI 10 out of the box.
