Redmi K20 Pro Debuts with Snapdragon 855 and 48 MP camera

But it enjoys a big price advantage over the OnePlus phone. The red-black and blue-black gradient give a subtle smoky effect to the rear panel of the Redmi K20 Pro.

Where once OnePlus defined that exhausted industry term "flagship killer" the K20 Pro can surely claim to be just that to the OnePlus 7 Pro today.

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

On the back, you will find three vertically-aligned cameras, and a dual-LED flash below them.

It comes with DC Dimming support and an in-display fingerprint scanner.

Talking about the specifications, the OnePlus 7 comes with a 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED display with Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

Protest leaders said it was sparked by security forces trying to remove barricades put up by demonstrators on the Nile Street. That civilian government would work towards having the first post-Bashir elections after the end of the transition period.

Redmi K20 has similar designs as the K20 Pro, except that it comes with a Snapdragon 730 SoC with a solo 6GB RAM variant and up to 128GB storage. The OnePlus 7 comes in two storage options - the 6GB + 128GB variant priced at Rs 32,999 and 8GB + 256GB variant priced at Rs 37,999. The Pro variant of the Redmi K-series will come will a triple camera setup and one of the cameras will be a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 primary sensor. A single 20-megapixel (f/2.0 aperture) unit is included on the phone's front side.

Redmi K20 Pro and Redmi supports NFC and finally houses a huge 4,000 mAh battery supporting AI smart optimization to extend the phone's battery to last longer. The phone measures 8.2mm in thickness and weighs 182 grams. The TENAA listing reveals other color variants too. The 6GB + 64GB variant is priced at CNY 2499 (approximately INR 25,200), the 6GB + 128GB variant will go for CNY 2599 (INR 26,200). The cost climbs to £549 for the model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

The Redmi K20 Pro is not being sold in the United States, at least not yet, but that's not a surprise given that Xiaomi has not sold any phones here up until now.

The OnePlus 7 Pro is already available for purchase in India, while the Oppo Reno just launched today and will be available for purchase in the coming weeks. The Redmi K20 and K20 Pro carry the highlights of being the first notch-less display smartphones from the brand.

All the other specs are the same, including the display, battery, cameras, and so on.

The Redmi K20 Pro is the most affordable phone yet to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset and Adreno 604 GPU - the same combo as OnePlus 7 Pro.
