The Xiaomi Redmi K20 is a mid-range smartphone. It is a slightly upgraded Redmi phone aimed at the consumers who won’t mind spending more than the conventional Redmi budget phone. With its high-end specs, the Redmi K20 occupies one of the top spots in Redmi’s portfolio. The phone is stacked with flagship-level features such as an in-display fingerprint sensor, AMOLED display, pop-up selfie camera, DC Dimming support, and more.
Design-wise, the Redmi K20 smartphone boasts a 3D four-curved large arc body that gives it a classy look. It has a 6.39-inch AMOLED Full HD+ screen paired with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset powers the phone with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. In the imaging segment, the phone packs a 48MP+13MP+8MP triple rear camera setup and a 20MP pop-up selfie camera. It ships with Android 9.0 Pie-based MIUI 10. A 4,000mAh battery completes the Redmi K20 with USB Type-C 18W fast charging support. Connectivity support onboard includes dual-SIM, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, Qualcomm TrueWireless Stereo Plus with AAC / LDAC / aptX/aptX-HD/aptX-adaptive support.
Pros: The Redmi K20 has a premium design, complete with water-splash resistance. Its notch-less Super AMOLED screen is one of the best in its price segment, thanks to high brightness and HDR10. Apart from the exclusion of 4K 60fps video recording, its cameras are awesome. Performance is fast, too. The phone has more-than-a-day battery life on a single charge and also comes with a dedicated 3.5mm headphone jack.
Cons: The fingerprint reader is slow and the phone's auto-rotate as well as auto-brightness calibration is awful.

Xiaomi Redmi K20 expert Review
Summary: The Redmi K20 is one of the best trimmed down versions of a flagship smartphone ever released. Except the Snapdragon 855 chipset and 4K 60fps video recording, it retains all the features of the Redmi K20 Pro. It looks similarly attractive, has the same great AMOLED screen, loud speakers, headphone jack, and long battery life. Its cameras are great for the price. The performance, while not as fast as the Snapdragon 855 on the Redmi K20 Pro, comes eerily close and you won't feel much of a difference even while gaming unless you're comparing side-by-side. If only it had a faster fingerprint reader and better auto brightness, it would've been the most perfect phone in its segment.READ XIAOMI REDMI K20 REVIEW
