Xiaomi entered the Indian market with a huge splash in 2014, selling its Mi 3 with the then-flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor at an extremely low price. However, the company has concentrated more on its entry-level and mid-budget Redmi models for a while now. The new Redmi K20 Pro builds on the popular Redmi name but takes Xiaomi back into high-end territory. Priced starting at Rs. 27,999 with its top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, this phone undercuts even OnePlus, which has been the go-to brand for affordable flagship phones for quite some time now. The Redmi K20 Pro offers many of the features and capabilities of the OnePlus 7 and even the higher priced OnePlus 7 Pro.
Dubbed the ‘Flagship Killer 2.0′, the new Redmi K20 Pro has generated huge amounts of interest in India thanks to multiple leaks and teasers before its official unveiling this week, not to mention its price. This is now the lowest-priced smartphone in India with a Snapdragon 855 processor, but it also has three rear cameras, an in-display fingerprint sensor, a big notchless screen with a pop-up selfie camera, and an intriguing design. Should OnePlus be worried? Read on to find out.
