Redmi K20 & K20 Pro might launch as Poco F2 & F2 Pro

The Redmi K20 Pro starts at ¥2499 (~$362) for the base model and goes up to ¥2999 (~$435) for the highest configuration. Xiaomi is in prime position to snatch the title with a sophomore Pocophone offering.

Xiaomi's sub-brand Redmi has been hyping up the launch of its first flagship smartphone, the Redmi K20 for the past few weeks. This has been made possible with the inclusion of a pop-up selfie camera module (we'll talk more about this in the camera section below), which Redmi says has been tested for 300,000 ejections. The Xiaomi phone comes in following RAM and storage combinations - 6GB+64GB, 8GB+128GB, and 8GB+256GB.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 vs 845: Worth the upgrade? Under its hood, this smartphone uses a Snapdragon 730 SoC instead of the Snapdragon 855 SoC. Unveiled a year ago, Qualcomm's high-end mobile platform boasts another generational leap in performance as well as some notable firsts for the mobile ... So, how do you like Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro?

Specifically, it is a 14-inch Full HD display with anti-glare coating and brightness level of 250nits.

All the other specs are the same, including the display, battery, cameras, and so on. Its design was uninspiring, the camera was underwhelming, and the Poco Launcher/MIUI software combo left a lot to be desired.

Xiaomi has unveiled the much-awaited Redmi K20 series in China, and we can't keep calm. Turning the phones around, the two models come with blue, red, and black glass backs that feature a flamed texture underneath.

The device does have a thin "chin" below the display, and its display corners are rounded.

The Pocophone F1 lacked a wow factor. The 20MP pop-up front camera also has a wide-angle mode and it can be used 300,000 times (from lab tests) and retracts itself if the phone falls. It is backed by a 3,700mAh non-removable battery and supports 5V/4A (20W) fast charging. It gets the same 48MP primary camera as the Redmi K20 Pro, but with a Sony IMX 582 sensor.

Redmi is now trying to take over the void created by OnePlus' rising prices by launching the K20 and K20 Pro at an event in China. With no notch on top, K20 Pro has a screen to body ratio of 91.9 percent.

Whether or not this turns out to be the case, the K20 Pro absolutely should be the Pocophone F2.

OnePlus 7 was launched in India along with OnePlus 7 Pro earlier this month. Let us know in the comments.
