Xiaomi’s Redmi is working on a flagship killer smartphone, dubbed the Redmi K20. The device has over the month leaked multiple times including some official teasers and renders, and with just a few days to its official debut, a fresh leaked render has surfaced that gives us a clearer view at the device from the flip side.
First spotted by Mysmartprice, the render reveals the Redmi K20 in an attractive flame Red with a holo-reflective panel on the back and a vertically positioned triple camera setup along side a dual-LED flash, while there are the usual power and volume buttons on the right side. The render once again confirms the K20 will get an under-display fingerprint scanner.
The upcoming K20 could come in two variants – the standard Redmi K20, and the K20 Pro which has so far received less attention from Redmi. As per reports, the K20 Pr0 is tipped to come with a Snapdragon 855 with Game Turbo 2.0 for optimized gaming performance, and up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of non-expandable storage, while the non- Pro variant could settle for the Snapdragon 710 chipset. While both devices are tipped to get the same design, it remains to be confirmed if the standard K20 will get an under-display scanner, a pop-up camera and of course the triple rear cameras all of which are believed to be some of the features that will make the Redmi k20 Pro stand out.
