Earlier this week, Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi confirmed that its first flagship smartphone will be called the K20. It is expected to launch in China soon, although no specific date has been revealed yet. Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing has now shared a screenshot on his Weibo page showing the AnTuTu score of the company’s upcoming flagship phone.
Redmi K20 Could be a Performance Beast
As you can see in the screenshot below, the Redmi K20 achieved an overall score of 4,58,754 on the AnTuTu 7.3.0 benchmark. That’s significantly higher than what the Xiaomi Mi 9 or even the Black Shark 2 gaming smartphone scores in the same test. It is also higher than the leaked AnTuTu score of the Red Magic 3 gaming smartphone that had surfaced online a few weeks before its official unveiling. The Red Magic 3 had scored 4,37,524 points on AnTuTu. Quite clearly, it looks like the Redmi K20 will use advanced cooling technology to ensure that it delivers impressive benchmark scores as well as real-world performance. Xiaomi had used LiquidCool technology in the POCO F1 last year, so it is likely that the Redmi K20 uses a more advanced version of the same technology.
The Redmi K20 is rumored to be equipped with a 6.39-inch AMOLED display featuring an under-display fingerprint scanner and Full HD+ resolution. Thanks to a 32MP popup selfie camera, the phone’s display will not have any notch or hole-punch. On the back of the phone will be a triple-camera setup with a 48MP resolution primary sensor. As we reported recently, Redmi will also launch a Pro variant of the K20 in China. The exact differences between the standard K20 and K20 Pro, however, are yet to be ascertained. As for color options, the Redmi flagship could debut in three colors: Red, Blue, and Carbon Fibre.
In a separate post on Weibo, Xiaomi co-founder and vice president De Liu has shared a new Redmi K20 poster that confirms the smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing had already confirmed last month that the company was working on a flagship device powered by a Snapdragon 855 chipset.
