Xiaomi reinvented its Redmi lineup in the last year launching it as a separate brand. The sub-brand started with smart steps to quickly conquer its independence thanks to the powerful Redmi K20 lineup. The Redmi K20 and K20 Pro hit a milestone for Xiaomi with flagship specifications, premium design, bezel-less display and a cheaper price tag. Now, the company is selling a Redmi K30 in China and soon will reveal the Redmi K30 Pro to the world. Despite the big interest in the K30, there’s still a good amount of Redmi K20 phones on the market as well. Xiaomi is working to clear the remaining stock with a new deal.
In order to celebrate the Lunar New Year, the company slashed the price of the Redmi K20 Pro Premium to CNY2,799. It’s the equivalent of $403 in direct conversion. The Redmi K20 Pro Premium is the most powerful variant of the Redmi K20 series. It retains the same design and cameras of K20 Pro, however, it an updated Snapdragon 855+, 12GB of RAM and 512GB of Internal Storage. That’s a lot of muscles for the asked price.
The handset originally came with a CNY3,199 price tag. Then it got a discount reaching CNY2,999 around the end of December. Now it is reaching the smaller price ever. Apart from the internals, you get a gorgeous bezel-less 6.39-inch AMOLED display with a pop-up 20MP selfie snapper. On the back, there is a triple-camera array with 48MP + 8MP + 16MP cameras. The handset draws power from a generous 4,000mAh battery with 27W fast-charging.
Redmi K20 Price cut comes in light of the Mi 10 series launch
Xiaomi wants to clean the stock of this device to gather interest for the next ones. In the next month, the company will unveil Mi 10 lineup during MWC 2020 in Barcelona. We also see the advent of a new Redmi K30 Pro (Mi 10T Pro) in the coming months which is expected to debut with Snapdragon 865 chipset.
