Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi recently launched its Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro handsets at an event in the company’s home country. Around the same time, it was confirmed that the handsets will be launched in India too. Xiaomi India MD Manu Kumar Jain took to Twitter to confirm that the two smartphones will come to India in “six weeks.” With the timing of the tweet, it was inferred that the devices will launch in India till mid-July.
Today, the date of the launch of the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro in India has been leaked. According to industry insiders, the two smartphones will finally be launched in India on July 18, that is exactly a month from today. This is completely in sync with the timeline that Jain tweeted about.
We should point out that Xiaomi has been leaving no stone unturned to create a buzz about its upcoming smartphones before their launch. This is particularly true for the Redmi K20 Pro. The company recently confirmed the launch of the smartphone in India via its official Twitter handle. In the post, Xiaomi has called Redmi K20 Pro as the “world’s fastest phone.” With the tweet, the Chinese brand has touted the presence of Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC and 8GB of RAM in the handset.
Just two days later, the company also shared the Antutu score of the Redmi K20 Pro on social media. It has claimed that the smartphone scored 3,88,803 in Antutu, in an attempt to highlight how powerful the performance of the device really is. It is worth noticing though that benchmark tests are not an ideal way to judge a handset’s performance, as a number of devices have been caught cheating in such tests. We would have to wait to try it ourselves before we can say if Redmi K20 Pro is actually that good a performer.
