Xiaomi Redmi K20

Along with the Redmi K20 Pro, Xiaomi launched the Redmi K20 in the Indian market. This is a slightly cut-down variant of the Redmi K20 Pro, and the only changes between the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro are the processor and the rear-facing camera. The Redmi K20 uses a Snapdragon 730 chipset instead of Redmi K20 Pro’s Snapdragon 855’s chipset. In the imaging department, the Redmi K20 has a triple-camera setup, but it can’t record 4K 60fps videos. All the other things remain the same.

Let us have a look at the pricing and features of the Redmi K20.

Redmi K20 Features, Specifications

The Redmi K20 has the same build as that of the Redmi K20 Pro, which means that it has an aluminum frame and glass panels on the front and the rear. The phone has the same, 6.39-inch Horizon AMOLED screen as well, complete with Full HD+ resolution, 600 nits peak brightness, DCI-P3, HDR10, and completely bezel-less design. The phone runs Android 9 Pie-based MIUI 10 software. It uses the Snapdragon 730 chipset, and the chipset is paired with 6GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There is a variant with 128GB storage as well. Unfortunately, there’s no microSD card slot inside this phone.

The 20MP selfie camera is hidden inside the motorized pop-up mechanism at the top of the Redmi K20. The selfie camera has F2.0 aperture, fixed-focus lens, and 1080p 30fps video recording. At the rear, the Redmi K20 has a triple-camera setup as well, similar to that of the Redmi K20 Pro. The 48MP Sony IMX586 primary sensor is 1/2-inch in size and has PDAF as well as laser autofocus. It can’t record 4K 60fps videos, though, due to ISP capability constraints from the processor. The other two cameras are a 13MP ultrawide-angle camera and an 8MP 2x optical zoom-equivalent telephoto camera. These two cameras can record 4K 30fps videos, too.

The Xiaomi Redmi K20 is powered by a 4000mAh battery as well, and it supports 18W Quick Charge 4+ rapid charging. The phone has a dual-SIM card slot, dual-4G LTE, dual-VoLTE, dual-frequency GPS, dual-band Wi-Fi b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The company has also used a more powerful audio amplifier and a loudspeaker. The phone has a P2i coating for water splash resistance. The pop-up camera supports drop protection, too, which means that it retracts automatically when the phone detects that it is falling.
