Ahead of their launch on 28th May, the most powerful Redmi devices from Xiaomi yet, the Redmi K20, and the K20 Pro have both got some last minute leaks. The Redmi K20, which is going to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730 processor has been spotted on Geekbench.
The listing, codenamed as Xiaomi Da Vinci shows the phone scoring an impressive 2569 points in single core performance and achieving a 7096 multi-core score. There is no other phone on the market currently with the Snapdragon 730 chipset to compare these results with. The Samsung Galaxy A80 will be using the same chip but is yet to hit the market.
The other leak involves the more powerful and the phone that is being advertised by Xiaomi as the true Flagship Killer, the Redmi K20 Pro. This phone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC and is expected to come in three variants, 6GB/64GB, 6GB/128GB and 8GB/128GB.
As for the pricing, the 6GB/64GB model can be expected to cost about Rs. 26,000, while the 6GB/128GB and 8GB/128GB variants about Rs. 28,000 and Rs. 30,000 respectively. Apart from this, the phone is expected to have a 48MP triple rear camera, a 20MP front popup camera, with a 6.39-inch AMOLED display with an in-display biometric sensor. K20 Pro is also expected to be packing in a 4000 mAh battery with 27W fast charging. One interesting thing about this phone is that it will retain the 3.5mm jack, something not a lot of flagships nowadays do.
The photos of the retail packaging of the Redmi K20 Pro has been spotted online and they pretty much confirm most of the rumors surrounding the specifications and features of the phone.
If the expected prices turn out to be true, the Redmi K20 Pro will be the cheapest phone with Snapdragon 855 chipset in the market. And if the overall phone is as good as last year’s Pocofone F1, the Redmi K20 Pro could really be a big problem for companies like Samsung, OnePlus, ASUS, etc. (not Huawei though, they have much bigger problems to deal with right now).
