Last month, Xiaomi launched its Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 in China. Since then, the company has been teasing the devices’ launch in India and has even called the Redmi K20 Pro as the “world’s fastest phone”. Yesterday, we had reported that we learned from some industry insiders that the company will launch the two smartphones in India on July 18. Today, Xiaomi India Managing Director Manu Kumar Jain has revealed via a tweet that Redmi K20 and Redmi Pro will launch in four weeks.
He wrote, “One step at a time, one punch at a time, and one round at a time. Let’s do it, guys. Let’s show them how it’s done. 4 weeks to go.”
Although Jain did not confirm the release date with this tweet, we should mention that earlier this month he said that the handsets will be launched in the next six weeks and the timeline ends in mid-July. We should also point out that four weeks from today will end on July 18, which is actually the launch date that we reported about.

Redmi K20 Pro is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 855 SoC, whereas the Redmi K20 houses Snapdragon 730 SoC. The phones come with up to 8GB RAM. Xiaomi has been comparing the Redmi K20 Pro with OnePlus 7 Pro because it has a similar pop-up selfie camera module and an in-display fingerprint sensor.

On the other hand, Redmi K20 features a 6.39-inch full-HD+ (1080×2340 pixels) AMOLED display and is powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC instead of the Snapdragon 855 SoC that is present in its elder sibling.
