Xiaomi is gearing up to launch the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro in India next month. Some media reports suggest that the India launch of the Redmi K series may happen in the third week of July. Ahead of the launch, Xiaomi India teases the Redmi K20 -- that is the younger brother of the Redmi K20 Pro. In the new teaser, the company teases the performance of the Redmi K20 and compares it (sort of) with the Redmi Note 7 Pro and the Realme 3 Pro.
In the new teaser, Xiaomi India Managing Director Manu Jain announced that in India too the Redmi K20 will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor that went official only a couple of months ago. In China too the Redmi K20 comes with Snapdragon 730 chipset. In the same teaser Jain noted that the Snapdragon 730 SoC is much powerful than the Snapdragon 710 and Snapdragon 675 that powers the Realme 3 Pro and Redmi Note 7 Pro, respectively.
Jain also reveals that the Snapdragon 730 processor is more than 40 per cent powerful when compared to the Snapdragon 710 and Snapdragon 675 chipset. Jain further reveals the AnTuTu score of all the three chipsets. In AnTuTu the Snapdragon 730 processor scores the highest - 218625. In comparison, the Snapdragon 675 scores 180808 in AnTuTu and lastly the Snapdragon 710 chip gets 155215 points in the performance test.
In the past Xiaomi India had revealed that the Redmi K20 Pro will be powered by Snapdragon 855 chipset. The Redmi K20 Pro is said to be the cheapest Snapdragon 855 phone in India so far. We believe the Indian variant of the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro will be similar to the China variant. This means both the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro will come with the pop-up selfie camera, triple rear cameras, gradient finish, glass body, among other things, in India.
Xiaomi India will be launching the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro in India in a few weeks. The company is yet to reveal the launch date. We expect the company to announce the launch date of the Redmi K20 series in the next few days.
