Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi is expected to make an official announcement tomorrow regarding its upcoming flagship. The announcement won’t be an actual event, but we will get the official name and the launch date. The Redmi smartphone has previously been subjected to multiple leaks and rumours.
Ahead of the announcement, a tipster has revealed new information about the Redmi flagship smartphone. There was a leak earlier this month which suggested the device will be named as Redmi K20 Pro and now tipster Ishan Agarwal revealed that the upcoming phones from the Chinese manufacturer will indeed be named as Redmi K20 and a higher variant Redmi K20 Pro.
The tipster further claims that both the devices will come in a Carbon Fibre Black, Glacier Blue, and Flame Red color options. The Redmi K20 will come in 6GB + 64GB, 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB storage configurations. As for the Pro variant, it will have the same storage options with an additional 8GB + 128GB variant.
Over the past weeks, we know a lot about the Redmi flagship smartphone from the leaks as well from the official hints and teasers. The smartphones codenamed “davinci” and “raphael” will be powered by the top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. The company also launched a new video which hints that the company’s next flagship smartphone will come with a pop-up camera. The pop-up camera seems to be placed a little towards the left side of the upper edge and not the center.
In terms of pricing, the smartphone will be priced higher than the higher variant of the Redmi Note 7 Pro as the company would not want to affect its sales. It will likely be priced in the range of Poco F1. We don’t have to wait much as the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro is expected to be launched by the end of this month of the start of June.
