Xiaomi-backed Redmi is preparing to enter the flagship space later this month with the launch of the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20Pro in China. Quite a lot has leaked about both devices in the past few weeks, and the brand in its hype game has also released some teasers that highlights the key specs of the upcoming devices.
While the K20 smartphone is tipped to launch in China on May 28, Redmi India has also confirmed both devices will be launching in India, and while its fate outside of these two countries remains unconfirmed, the latest scoop from Europe suggest the RedmiK20 and K20 Pro will indeed launch in the region, but as a re-branded Xiaomi phone.
Spiderweb reports that the Redmi K20 and RedmiK20 Pro will indeed launch in Poland, but not as the K20 and K20 Pro. The report has it that both devices could be re-branded to launch as the Xiaomi Redmi 9T and Redmi 9T Pro.

While this is an indication both devices will not be limited to China and India, the source further hinted that the report is about 100% legit, though the exact date it will reach the central EU country remains unknown. Perhaps, we will hear more about international availability at the May 28 Beijing event.
While the premium Redmi K20 Pro is expected to highlight the Snapdragon 855, the standard K20 as per a report from Yesterday revealed the standard Redmik20 will ditch the SD855 SoC for the recent Snapdragon 730. Other areas of differences could be difference in camera, and of course you should expect a few compromises made in the camera department. For the Pro variant, we do know that it will come with a triple camera module- 48MP primary sensor (Sony IMX586) + 13MP Ultra wide sens + 8MP telephoto lens. On the front, it is said to come with 20MP pop-up front came, we do not know much about the standard K20 st the moment.
