Xiaomi Introduces Its Next Flagship, Redmi K20 Pro

Xiaomi has recently announced a new smartphone in China, called the Redmi K20 Pro. Based on its specification, the device certainly doesn’t disappoint. It has all the specs that you would expect from any flagship in 2019. The Redmi K20 Pro comes with the high performance Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. It’s also the processor used by LG G8 ThinQ, OnePlus 7 and Samsung Galaxy S10. The K20 Pro includes eight layers of graphite for heat dissipation for the high performance processor. The phone also ships with 64GB of internal storage and respectable 6GB of RAM. There’s also a version of K20 Pro with 128GB of internal storage.

For maximum multitasking performance, you may get a version with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Do note that the K20 Pro doesn’t have microSD expansion port. So, you may need to choose a version with larger internal storage if you wish to have a lot of apps and files. It has custom MIUI 10 overlay on top Android 9 Pie. Users could fully charge the 4,000mAh battery in less than 80 minutes with the 27W fast charging brick. There’s the standard 3.5mm jack and the phone has acceptable design with the edge-to-edge display. Xiaomi skips the controversial punch hole and notch for its 6.4-inch AMOLED display.

With tall 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 2340 x 1080 resolution and 91.9 percent screen to body ratio, the display is enjoyable to use. There’s no fingerprint sensor on its rear, instead the K20 Pro uses the optical in-display fingerprint scanner. The near all-screen design is possible with the pop-out camera module with a 20Mp camera inside. Xiaomi says that there will be a software update later to enable the wide-angle mode. For faster response, the selfie camera could open in less than one second. On the back, there’s a triple-camera setup with vertical alignment. It has 48Mp primary sensor, 13Mp wide angle lens (127-degree FoV) and 8Mp telephoto with 2x optical zoom. As comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S10+ has only 123-degree field of view.
