You’d be forgiven to think the Redmi K20 is already official, that’s perhaps because the device has been in the news headlines for a while now, while the maker has been drip feeding us with bits of information regarding the device. The actual Redmi K20 launch is set for May 28 (about 24hrs from now), and from what we know so far, we will get to see two versions of the device – the standard Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro.
While the firm has so far refrained from teasing both devices separately, we now have more confirmation that the Redmi Pro actually exists. The confirmation comes courtesy of some real live images posted on Chinese social network Weibo revealing the retail package as well as the front view of the device.
The retail package shown below only confirms the K20 Pro moniker, while the other leaked image shows the phone’s main screen with the K20 Pro name, as well as some basic features. The screen as we can see inst illuminated, but then we can notice there isn’t any form of a notch, instead there is a protective covering that for the pop-up camera.

The protective film on the phone’s screen tells us the Redmi K20 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, a triple rear camera setup one of which is a 48MP camera with Sony’s IMX586 sensor earlier confirmed to come with support for 960 FPS slow-mo video recording. It also confirms the device will flaunt a large 6.39-inch AMOLED display with a fingerprint scanner and powered by a 4,000 mAh battery with 27W fast charging support.
The Redmi K20 Pro is expected to go official tomorrow, however, we might not have to wait until the before we get some idea of its market price, at least in China. As per a leaked poster posted on Weibo a few days ago, the Redmi K20 Pro with 6GB RAM/64GB storage will be priced at CNY2,599 ($377), the 6GB/128GB variant at CNY2,799 ($406), while the top of the range version with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage will go for as much as CNY2,999 ($435).
is it just me or is that render pic so blatantly fake? look at the strip of camera lenses in the middle. it’s not in perspective the same way the body of the phone is. seems to me it just got pasted into the pic. fake, or badly made rendering?
Nah, it looks good to me
To be fair, these are taken from the previously leaked case renders. Probably the renders were made by a third party case manufacturer. Hence the poor quality.
