Remember the Redmi K20, that upcoming Redmi smartphone that notched a whopping Antutu benchmark score of 458,754? Well, now it can be said: It will be launched in China May 28, barely a week from today.
The K20 signals the Xiaomi sub-brand’s first foray into flagship territory, with the device being a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 phone. In fact, Redmi calls it the “Flagship Killer 2.0” in an apparent jab at the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro.

The Redmi K20 is confirmed to have three cameras on the back, one of which is a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor that can take 960fps slow-motion videos. No verified reports yet on the other two, but word has it that 8-megapixel ultra-wide and 16-megapixel telephoto cameras are in the cards. Below is what could be a picture taken with the K20.
The pop-up front camera could be 20 megapixels. And because of that selfie-camera design, the phone gets a screen that is notch-less. The display supposedly measures 6.39 inches, has a fingerprint sensor underneath it, and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6. The battery is rumored to be 4,000mAh with support for 27-watt fast charging.
The Redmi K20 will eventually make its way to India. Hopefully, the Philippines is part of the list of countries where the handset is going to debut. Because if the Xiaomi Mi 9, another Snapdragon 855 device, is priced as low as P22,990 (around $436) in the country, how much more (or less?) the K20, which is part of the more affordable Redmi label.
