Xiaomi has launched the gamepad for Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro a short while ago. The launch has come as a surprize. Earlier, Xiaomi announced its plans to launch the Xiaomi game controller at the China Joy Expo 2019. However, nobody had a clue that the launching will follow the announcement. The smartphone giant even published a poster announcing the launch of the Redmi K20.
Xiaomi was also supposed to launch a new gaming laptop. However, the launch of the new accessories which were announced at the Redmi K20’s launch event is confirmed.
Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro were also released in India and as is the case with any Xiaomi smartphone in India, it gained immense popularity in no time. What the Indian users did not know is that the Redmi K20 series supports Black Shark game controllers. But the Indian user might be disappointed as the controller will not be available in India anytime soon.
The gaming controller is priced at 179 yuan. However, there is a discount offer for the users of the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro. They can purchase it at the discounted price of 99 Yuan.
The game controller will hit the markets from Saturday. However, nobody has any clue regarding the launch of the game controller in India. The game controller which was announced is the same as the one that Black Shark launched along with the Black Shark 2.
The controller can be attached on the left side of the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro. The controller features a joystick, a D-pad, and a couple of buttons (LT and LB). It also features a quick-connect key, signature green-colored Bluetooth indicator, and a multi-purpose function button next to the Black Shark logo.
The controller runs on a 340 mAh battery. However, the game controller will require a custom case. The controller needs to be anchored in and snapped in the case before a user can start playing, say, PUBG Mobile game. The battery supports quick charge, and it is expected to last up to 40 hours of gameplay.
