HD streaming in Amazon Prime Video now available on Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro

Soon after the launch of the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro, users noticed that neither of the smartphones was able to play HD videos in Amazon Prime Video. While the brand has rolled out multiple software updates to both the smartphones, none of the updates offered a fix for the video playback issue in the streaming application.

Well, that changes today. Xiaomi has announced on its forum for India that the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro now support HD video playback in Amazon Prime Video. In order to fix the issue, you’ll just have to update the Amazon Prime Video application through Play Store. So, it looks like the issue was indeed from Amazon’s side.

Speaking of the update, the Redmi K20 and the K20 Pro have recently received a new software update, which brings MIUI 11 customization to both the device. Unfortunately, the new firmware is still based on the Android 9 Pie operating system, instead of the newer, Android 10 OS. Speaking of, both smartphones are set to receive the new OS in Q1 2020.
