Redmi K20 Pro Launched with Snapdragon 855 OnePlus 7 Killer ?
Xiaomi literally destroyed the competition last year with their new Sub-brand Poco by launching a Device with Flagship Snapdragon 845 at a price that nobody expected, and the Poco F1 still holds its position without any competitor even after a Year.
Now Xiaomi is Back with their another sub-brand Redmi and has launched Redmi K20 Pro which is also being called as the successor to Poco F1.
The all-new Redmi K20 Pro not only comes with the latest and Fastest Snapdragon Processor but also fixes on every issue and complaints that people had last year with Poco F1.
We are surprised to say that, but Redmi K20 Pro is the only smartphone in the market right now without any compromises.
Yes, you heard correct, It is the only phone which we can call a perfect phone.
Still, there are some minor issues with it but cannot be termed as deal-breaker and can be easily ignored.
And in this article, we are going to completely review Xiaomi’s Latest Flagship killer Redmi K20 Pro.
K20 Pro comes with a Snapdragon 855 with 6GB of Ram and 128Gb of Internal Storage for the base variant while the top-end variant comes with 8Gb of Ram and 256GB of Internal Storage.
The Device will be running on Android 9.0 Pie with MIUI 10 on top.
Adreno 640 is said to be the GPU here.
And all of this is powered by a 4000mAh battery which does support fast charging at 27W but only comes with 18W Charger out of the box.
Though, Xiaomi has announced a new 27W Charger too for ₹999 which you can anytime purchase from their Official Website
Qualcomm’s latest flagship offering Snapdragon 855 is a 64-Bit Octa-Core Processor with Eight Kryo-485 Cores clocked at 2.84Ghz and built on 7nm Process technology.
This Chipset does support 5G Technology which is yet to be launched in India but there is no word by the company if the Black Shark will support it or not.
GPU used here is Adreno 640 and does come with AIE(Artificial Intelligence Engine) Technology.
Qualcomm’s Hexagon 690 Processor is used as DSP(Digital Signal Processor).
On the front, there is a 6.39-inches FHD+ AMOLED Display with DCPI-3 Color Gamut and offers a complete bezel-less experience without any notch or punch-hole camera.
Xiaomi has opted for Pop-Up Front Camera system just like the OnePlus 7 Pro.
Pop-Up Camera on Redmi K20 Pro also comes with a Glowing LED Light on its sides which definitely attracts the attention of the person looking at the phone.
These LED lights embedded on the sides of Pop-Up Camera will also act as a notification LED light too.
The Frame is completely made up of Metal which makes it feel like a sturdy phone.
On the back, there is a Vertical Triple Camera Setup, Redmi Branding and a Unique Pattern depending upon the color variant which you will choose.
The Back is completely made up of Glass and Protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
Xiaomi is also using an In-Display Fingerprint Sensor this time, they call it as their 7th-Gen In-display Fingerprint sensor.
There is a Vertical Triple Camera Setup on the back of the phone placed at the centre consisting of a 48-Megapixel Sony IMX 586 Primary Shooter with an Aperture of f/1.75, 8-Megapixel Telephoto Shooter with an Aperture of f/2.4 and a 13-Megapixel Wide Angle Lens with an Aperture of f/2.4 which is 124º Wide.
All of the three cameras can shoot at 4k@60fps.
The Primary Sensor also comes with Slo-mo 960fps@1080 resolution
Redmi has implemented Laser Auto-focus system for fast and accurate focusing unlike the Dual-Pixel Auto-Focusing system on Poco F1.
On the top, there is a Pop-up 20-Megapixel Shooter for Selfies and can shoot videos up to 1080p@30fps.
Redmi K20 Pro comes at a starting Price tag of ₹27,999 for the 6GB Ram and 128GB Internal Storage variant.
Whereas the higher-end variant which comes with 8GB of Ram and 256GB of Internal Storage is priced at ₹30,999.
At such Pricing, the phone directly competes with OnePlus 7 which is also OnePlus’s Latest Flagship of 2019.
And to be very honest, both of the phones offer similar performance.
But overall, Redmi K20 Pro has an advantage.
Redmi has optimized their MIUI a lot for their K20 Pro and even has decided to remove all the ads, this makes K20 Pro faster than the OnePlus 7.
A very renowned YouTube C4eTech has made a video on that, you can check it out by clicking right here.
Even when it comes to hardware, K20 wins as it comes with a complete Bezel-Less Display compared to a Dew Drop Notch on OnePlus 7.
Redmi K20 Pro also retains the Headphone jack unlike the OnePlus 7.
And K20 Pro comes with Triple Camera Setup compared to Dual Camera setup on OnePlus 7.
So for sure, OnePlus 7 has already been overthrown by K20 Pro.
But one aspect where OnePlus 7 has an edge is Software experience, as it comes with OxygenOS.
But I don’t think that anyone would sacrifice Full-Screen Bezel-Less display and even Pay ₹5,000 more just for the OxygenOS.
Other Phones in the Market like Asus Zenfone 6Z are competitive too but cannot be considered over K20 Pro.
So what do we think is that, Redmi K20 Pro is definitely a worthy choice and user can anytime go with this over the OnePlus 7.
We feel that K20 Pro is a lot better in every aspect than the OnePlus 7 or any other device in this price range.
