Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi is all set to launch its first flagship smartphone, the Redmi K20 on May 28. The smartphone is being touted to come with tons of features with an affordable price tag giving a tough competition to recently launched flagships such as the OnePlus 7/OnePlus 7 Pro. The Redmi K20 series will have two smartphones: a regular variant and a Pro variant.
Xiaomi has already confirmed that the K20 will come with the top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset but didn’t specify whether it stands for either or both of them. Without any doubt, the processor will be powering the Pro variant. Now a new poster has revealed the chipset on the regular non-pro variant.
According to the poster spotted at a Mi store, the Redmi K20 will house a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 which also powers the Samsung Galaxy A80. The 8nm chipset was announced by Qualcomm back in April with the SD 665 and the SD 730G. The SD 730 is an octa-core chipset with a 2+6 Kyro 460 core arrangement and has Adreno 618GPU, a Hexagon 688 DSP, Qualcomm’s Hexagon Tensor accelerator and a computer vision ISP that allows 4K HDR video recording with bokeh effect.
The poster further confirms the Redmi K20 will feature a full-screen display, a pop-up selfie camera, triple rear camera setup with a 48MP primary camera. There will be a 7th generation in-screen fingerprint scanner along with a 4,000 mAh battery. It will run Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box.
