Redmi K20 to use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 700 series SoC

Redmi K20

The upcoming Redmi flagship series is perhaps the most discussed smartphone in recent times. Today, a new set of renders appeared online which shows that the rear of the Redmi K20 series will be made with glass and its triple rear camera is vertically aligned. This series has two smartphones but exact differences between these devices have not been listed. Now, it appears that we may have gotten the first difference between the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro. While the K20 Pro has been established to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, a recent report shows that the Redmi K20 will be powered by a chip in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 700 series (probably SD710 or 712).
