WILL XIAOMI REDMI K20 AND REDMI K20 PRO COME TO NEPAL?

Our beloved smartphone brand, Xiaomi, has launched yet another flagship phone for the Redmi series. The new Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro are the new flagships of Xiaomi. Xiaomi Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro are launched in China with almost half the price of OnePlus 7 Pro. Our main concern is, will Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro come in Nepal? Here we are to find out.

We contacted Mi Nepal for the information about the availability of the devices in Nepal and got the reply as, “Stay tuned for further updates”. It seems as they too don’t know about the availability. The Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro are not available in India. As in the past, we can get our hands on these devices officially after two or three months of their availability in India.

Redmi K20 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset. And the Redmi K20 Pro is powered by the latest Snapdragon 855 chipset. The Redmi K20 Pro comes with the 7th generation In-Display fingerprint scanner. It features a 48MP triple rear camera having Sony IMX 586 sensor and an 8MP telephoto lens and a 13MP wide-angle lens. The Redmi K20 also features a 48MP triple camera but, the sensor is the Sony IMX582. It can easily compete with camera-centric smartphones like Pixel and OPPO.

The popup cameras of the both Xiaomi flagship devices, Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro are of 20MP.  The 3D glass body with a gradient finish of Redmi K20 series looks really awesome and make us wish to hold it on our hands, Along with the Red and Blue coloured 3D glass finish, Xiaomi also gave us a Carbon Fiber variant.

IS THIS THE ‘FLAGSHIP KILLER’ KILLER?

With the same specs as the OnePlus 7 Pro with half the price, is Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro the ‘flagship killer’ killer? The ‘K’ in Redmi K20 lineup is believed to be the ‘Killer’. It comes with the liquid cooling and the Antutu score of up to 458,000, the highest score on any android phone till now. Many tech enthusiasts believe it to be the new Pocofone.

WHO IS THIS PHONE FOR?

Having a flagship specs is not useful to any one. The Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro is no exception. It is especially for the people who do not care about the Operating System (OS) or the mobile skin but want the best raw performance. Redmi K20 comes with a lesser processor and lesser power. However, Redmi the K20 Pro is the best budget right now in terms of raw performance and power.
