Redmi K20 now available for deposit-based pre-order in China
Redmi has unleashed its new flagship, the K20, on the market. Despite the fact that its actual launch date is still in the future, it can already be reserved on either Mi.com or JD.com in China. Unlike many other similar procedures, Redmi requires its customers to pay 100 yuan (about US$14.50) towards the full price of the phone in order to secure a unit. This may indicate the Xiaomi brand's level of confidence in its new premium Snapdragon 855 device.
Some more details on the phone have also been released: the Redmi K20 exhibits a 6.39-inch notch-free AMOLED display. This, as expected, is due to its pop-up camera, which is 20MP in resolution. The K20 has a "7th-generaion" Synaptics fingerprint sensor. It is to be sold in color options that include carbon fibre, blue and red (in a manner rather reminiscent of the POCO F1).
Redmi has not disclosed every detail on the K20 yet, however. We know that the phone will rock a 48MP main camera that is likely to be have a Sony IMX 586 sensor, but have fewer details on the other 2 lenses that should accompany it. However, it is now thought that this main camera will be able to capture slow motion video captureat 960 frame.
The Redmi K20 will also have a Game Turbo 2 mode, which involves the ability to answer texts while gaming. It will be released on May 28, 2019, at which point those who have reserved it will be able to order their phones in full.
