A fresh tweet shared by a senior Xioami executive reveals that the company will organise a celebration event in New Delhi which is scheduled for the 17th of July. It is speculated that the three remaining products from the upcoming launch list will be announced at the same event which the company is referring to as Mi Pop. Out of the three future device launches, two will be the K20 and K20 Pro which are highly anticipated in the country.
To recall, the features and specifications of the two smartphones are as follows:
The Redmi K20 and the K20 Pro have glass on both the front and rear which is held together with a metal chassis. The handsets have a 6.39 inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 px. To maximise the screen real estate, they both have a pop-up mechanism on top which houses the front-facing selfie camera. For biometric security and rapidly getting through the lockscreen, the Redmi K20 series has an in display fingerprint scanner along with support for face unlock.
Under the hood, the economical Redmi K20 is kitted with the 8nm Snapdragon 730 SoC. The chipset is comprised of an Octa-core CPU and the Adreno 618 GPU. On the other hand, the flaghsip grade Redmi K20 Pro runs on the 7nm Snapdragon 855 SoC which has an Octa-core CPU and the Adreno 640 GPU. In terms of optics, both smartphones have a triple rear camera setup consisting of an f/1.75 aperture equipped 48MP sensor, an f/2.4 aperture equipped 13MP ultra wide angle sensor; and a tertiary f/2.4 aperture equipped 8MP telephoto sensor. For selfies, an f/2.0 aperture equipped 32MP sensor is housed in the pop-up mechanism on top of the handsets.
Both the Redmi K20 and the K20 Pro are powered by a 4,000 mAh battery. However, the former supports 18 W fast charging while the latter supports 27 W fast charging. Both devices run on MIUI 10 which is based on top of the latest Android 9 Pie. The smartphones are offered in three colour options including Blue, Red and Black.
Even though the claim, that the K20 duo will launch on 17th of July seems legit, we will still have to wait for an official word from the company. Fortunately, the date of the event is nearing fast, therefore we won’t have to wait for too long.
