It reveals the processor to be clearly a Snapdragon 439 SoC. A couple of hours back, Xiaomi India’s head Manu Kumar Jain tweeted about the Redmi 7A and said “this time we are smarter by upgrading to latest SD 730, which is 40% faster than 1-year-old SD 710”. This led to presumptions that the handset could have a Snapdragon 730 SoC. Jain then had to issue a clarification tweet in which he revealed that the Redmi K20 will be the one coming with the Snapdragon 730 chip.

As for the difference in the Indian variant, the rear camera will be a 12MP AI sensor (Sony IMX 486). There’s also talk about a feature which is only on under Rs 20,000 phones such as the Redmi Note 7 and Mi A2. We’re expecting it to be Type-C but we’ll find out the reality tomorrow.
