Buying Redmi K20 Pro in 2020?

Redmi K20 Pro got a price cut of 4000/- in flipkart now which makes it a good deal at that price, But we are in 2020 now and this model released nearly an year ago. How can this compete with current flagships? Let’s find out.

Welcome to our new series - Once a Flagship - Always a Flagship

Design and build

Redmi K20 Pro has classy glass back with a flame design which makes us feel like a flagship and it’s about 190 gms, protected by Gorilla glass on display and back which makes it more robust. I personally like the simple vertically aligned camera setup which makes it look more formal. And the Pop-up camera is pretty intelligent evenn if you drop phone accidentally this will be closed within a second, we tested it several times with drop test and camera is perfectly fine. It has a bigger bezel less display without any notch or punch hole and that’s quite interesting point to note. People often say that parts with mechanical action won’t work after some days. But I’m using K20 Pro from last 1 year it’s still working pretty fine

K20 Pro is available in 4 colors - Flame Red, Glacier Blue, Carbon Fiber Black, Pearl White

And also it enhances privacy, when some app trys to use camera this camera should come up, BOOM you’ll easily know.



Specifications Redmi K20 Pro
Display Type AMOLED
Aspect Ratio 19.5:9
Screen to Body ratio 91%
Screen Protection Corning Gorilla Glass v5
Screen Size 6.39 inches (16.23 cm)
Screen Resolution 1080 x 2340 pixels

I personally like AMOLED screens over IPS LCD and the Bezell less display with screen to body ratio of 91% which makes it more elegant. Also we do have good brightness even in sun light. And 6.39 inches of screen size, makes it more handy than bigger 6.7 inch displays coming these days.


Specifications Redmi K20 Pro
Bootup Time 12.0 s
Chipset Snapdragon 855
Graphics Areno 640
Processor Octa core(2.84 Ghz)
ROM 128 GB

The most happening processor these days is Snapdragon 765G as NORD, Pixel 4a and other major devices are coming with 765G, But still Snapdragon 855 is better that 765G except 5G support. 5G support for the next 2 years is like a myth. Even performance wise k20 Pro is tough competitor.


Specifications Redmi K20 Pro
Back Camera Type Triple
Back Camera 48MP + 13MP(Ultra Wide)+ 8MP(Macro)
Front Camera Type Pop-Up
Front Camera 20MP f/2.2
Video Recording 1080p @ 30 fps, 720p @ 30 fps
Camera Sensor Exmor-RS CMOS Sensor
Optical Image Stabilisation No
Flash Dual LED Flash

Camera wise K20 Pro is still good, Redmi supports with better updates to camera app to make it more better. And with GCam you’ll get pretty great pictures.

OS and update support

OS - MIUI 12

It works on MIUI which is built on top of Android. Even though it’s an old device MIUI updates support will be there for next 3 years upto MIUI 12 which makes it more worthy. Recently MIUI 12 has been came to K20 series within 2 months of release.


Specifications Redmi K20 Pro

Capacity 4000 mAh
Fast Charger 18W (comes in box)
Fast Charging support 27W( need to buy)

Even we have crtical gaming sessions K20 Pro will stay alive a whole day, with 27W charger phone will charge within an hour from 0 to 100%.


Specifications Redmi K20 Pro
Headphone Jack 3.5mm
Stereo Speakers No
Fingerprint scanner In-display


Even if we compare to other phones at this price we won’t get that build quality and flagship look. Also Snapdragon 855 is a true beast which is more worth than 765G or 730G. We prefer K20 Pro as the best deal now on flipkart for 24,000. If you’re looking to buy this, Go ahead, This is still a flagship and it’s still worthy to buy in 2020.
