Xiaomi has finally unveiled the new Redmi K20 Pro Premium Edition in China starting at RMB 2699. The smartphone was officially announced via the company website on 20th of September, 2019.
Redmi K20 Pro Premium Edition is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor and up to 12GB RAM + 512GB storage combination. This version of the Snapdragon processor has a higher clock frequency (from 2.84GHz to 2.96GHz). It also has an improved Adreno 640 GPU that enhances a 15% better graphics performance than the standard Snapdragon 855.
An official Xiomi blog post refers that the smartphone is “designed with mobile gamers in mind” and sports an “8-layer graphite stack cooling system, which is up to 650% more efficient in reducing temperature rise caused by heat accumulation than single-layer graphite”.
The smartphone has a capacity of 12GB RAM and 512GB storage and it can store up to 100,000 photos or install up to 643 mobile apps. It also comes with a 4000 mAh battery and a 27W fast charging adapter in-box. The device can be charged 58% charge in half an hour and a 100% in 72 minutes.

The new K20 offers AI triple camera setup and includes Sony’s 48MP wide-angle camera, 13MP wide-angle camera, and 8MP telephoto camera. It also features a 2MP pop-up selfie camera. However, the selfie camera does not live up to our expectations when compared to the other devices in the market.
