The Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro is the flagship model of the new K20 series and comes with a 6.39-inch AMOLED display with 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution. The panel is to cover the front of the device to nearly 92 percent and has no cutout for the front camera and only a narrow "chin" at the bottom. The screen is in 19.5: 9 format and should be able to light up to 600 candelas if required.

The front camera with its 20 megapixel resolution and an f / 2.0 aperture sits in an extendable module that can be extended within 0.8 seconds. It has a "sapphire crystal" cover to prevent scratches and, according to the manufacturer, should withstand at least 300,000 extension and retraction procedures. The K20 Pro also has a new fingerprint reader underneath the surface of the AMOLED screen, which is designed to enable significantly faster user recognition.

Inside the device is the latest high-end technology around the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, whose eight cores reach a maximum of 2.84 gigahertz. Among other things, Xiaomi promises that with new materials, one wants to achieve an optimal dissipation of the resulting heat, in order to enable extended loads such as game sessions without chokes. Depending on the model, the chip is combined with six, eight or even twelve gigabytes of RAM, while the internal flash memory with 64, 128 or 256 GB is also quite neatly dimensioned.

For the cameras, Xiaomi relies on the current concept of combining different sensors into a triple-cam unit. The main sensor is a Sony IMX586 with 48 megapixel resolution, which has a six-part lens and pixel-binning to deliver sharper images. The main camera has a f / 1.75 aperture, but comes without an optical image stabilizer therefore. The second camera on the back uses a 13 megapixel sensor with an f / 2.4 aperture and an almost 125 degree wide field of view for ultra wide-angle shooting. There is also a zoom lens with 8-megapixel sensor and f / 2.4 aperture.

The Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro has also built a 4000mAh large battery, which can be loaded extremely fast with Quick Charge 4.0. In addition to the USB-C port used for this device, unlike most current top smartphones, the device also has a 3.5 millimeter jack connection for headsets and headphones, which is housed at the upper end next to the retractable front camera. Also welcome is the support for the new dual-GPS technology, which allows a meter-new positioning.

As usual, the funk will be done via ac-WLAN, Gigabit-LTE and, by the way, also via NFC. The smartphone has a housing made of glass and metal and brings it with a height of 8.8 millimeters to a weight of 191 grams. Xiaomi intends to start distribution of the K20 Pro in China as of June 1, placing a price of only 2499 yuan for the base version with six GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, which equates to € 323. For the output with doubled internal memory converted 336 euros are due, while in the models with 8 / 128GB converted 362 euros and 8/256 GB memory only 388 euros are due.

Should the Chinese manufacturer be able to implement these prices even approximately in the same form in Europe, the competitors should certainly have to dress warmly. In addition to the Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro Xiaomi also presented the "normal" K20, in place of the high-end SoC a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 is used with up to 2.2 gigahertz. The further equipment is here practically identical, whereby it starts with this model priced with converted only scarcely 260 euro.
