Xiaomi launches the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro with triple rear camera and 8GB Ram, full specifications and price in India, Europe

The Redmi K20 and K20 pro are now official. After all the rumours, leaked specifications and teasers, Xiaomi has officially unveiled the K20 series in Beijing. This are the two most powerful smartphones from the Redmi brand so far and they both come at a very affordable price.
The Redmi K20 is the more cheaper version of the K20 series and its powered by the Snapdragon 730 chipset. This chipset was recently unveiled by Qualcomm making the K20 one of the first smartphones to use it. The device will also come in 3 variants which are 6GB RAM and 64GB storage, 6GB RAM and 128GB storage or 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. All three models don't support a microSD expansion.

The Redmi K20 Pro which is the higher priced version of the K20 series is powered by Qualcomm's more efficient Snapdragon 855 chipset which is the same as on other flagships like the S10, Oneplus 7 and others. The chipset is backed by the Adreno 640 chipset and it's available in 4 memory variants which are 6GB RAM + 128GB storage,  6GB RAM + 128GB storage, 8GB RAM + 128GB storage, and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage. Just like on the K20, none of them supports microSD Card.

Both the K20 and the K20 Pro uses the same display which is a 6.39-inch AMOLED full-HD+ display. It has a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, 403 ppi density and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Just like on the Oneplus 7 pro, Redmi has also adopted the mechanical pop-up front facing camera which means there is no notch or camera cutout anywhere on the display and this gives the device a 91.9 percent screen to body ratio. Another first for the Redmi brand is the in-screen fingerprint scanner on the K20 series as well as the  hardware DC dimming support to reduce screen flickering.
The camera setup on both devices is almost the same as they both have a triple rear camera configuration with a primary 48-megapixel sensor with f/1.75, a 13-megapixel secondary shooter with a wide-angle lens, and a third 8-megapixel shooter with an f/2.4 lens. The difference between the two devices is the sensor used. The regular K20 has a primary Sony IMX586 sensor which lets it shoot 4k videos at 30fps while the pro version has a Sony IMX586 sensor which allows 4k video recording at 60fps. The front shooter is however the same single 20MP camera which is hidden in the pop-up mechanism.

They also both share the same 4,000mAh battery with USB Type-C fast charging supported. The K20 has an 18W fast charger included in the box while the K20 Pro comes with a 27W charger and support for Qualcomm's Quick Charge 4.0. They both come with Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, a 3.5mm audio jack and runs on MIUI 10 which is based on the Android 9 Pie.

As far as pricing goes, the new Redmi K20 Pro will start at CNY 2,499 (roughly Rs. 25,200) in China for the 6GB + 64GB variant. The 6GB + 128GB will go for  CNY 2,599 (roughly Rs. 26,200), the 8GB + 128GB will sell for CNY 2,799 (roughly Rs. 28,200), while the 8GB + 256GB variant will retail at CNY 2,999 (roughly Rs. 30,200).
