The K20 Pro
is a part of the new K series of smartphones from Redmi
. It is the flagship smartphone and sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855
SoC. This smartphone sports a 6.39-inch AMOLED display
which makes it the first Redmi
smartphone with an AMOLED display. The big display dominates the front of the smartphone and the K20 Pro
has a 91.9%
screen-to-body ratio. It is a FHD+ HDR
panel and has good viewing angles and adequate brightness to be visible outdoors.
has also opted for a unique gradient pattern for the back which helps the device stand out. There is Corning Gorilla Glass 5
protection at the front and the back which helps the smartphone resist wear caused by daily use. The Redmi K20 Pro
is available in two variants, 6GB RAM
with 128GB storage
and 8GB RAM
with 256GB storage.
It sports a triple camera setup at the back consisting of a 48-megapixel primary sensor, 13-megapixel ultra-wide angle sensor and an 8-megapixel tele-photo sensor. It has a 20-megapixel pop-up selfie camera. These cameras deliver good photos during the day and we liked the smartphone's macro performance. Portraits were very good and the phone did manage edge detection well.
The Redmi K20 Pro
runs MIUI 10
on top of Android 9 Pie
. The UI does have useful features but is riddled with spammy notifications throughout the day. The Redmi K20 Pro
packs in a 4,000mAh battery
that delivers more than a day and a half of battery life. It ran very well in our HD video loop test and we manage to go beyond a day with our usage.
The advantage the K20
Pro has over its competition is in terms of price. It is the most affordable smartphone with a Qualcomm 855
SoC in India. However, Xiaomi
's sale model might make it hard to get your hands on one.
