The so-called flagship killer /Demon king official launch (Redmi K20)is still a couple of days away, but the company can’t wait to launch it already. The firm’s GM and the official Redmi social media handlers have been drip feeding us with bits of information, and with this pace, it appears there won’t be much left to reveal at the launch tipped for May 28th in China.
The official Redmi on Weibo has released a teaser poster that reveals the battery size of the upcoming Redmi K20. The poster has the tag “Want More” with “4000 mAh long life” indicating a 4000mAh battery – the same battery capacity found in the Redmi 3s, and the entire Redmi Note 7 family. One that isn’t sure yet is whether or not this will feature in the alleged Redmi K20 or the regular Redmi smartphones or both. While that isn’t the big deal, reports have it that the device will bring to the table one of the features currently found only in the Mi 9 flagship – the fast charging capability up to 27W.
