Redmi K20, Poco F2 launches on 28 May : Price, Specification, Launch date !!

After teasing its new flagship on multiple occasions and openly nudging OnePlus, Redmi has finally put a date to the launch of the K20. The Redmi K20 will be launched officially on 28 May in China at 2 pm local time (11:30 am IST). Here's what you can expect from the OnePlus killer:

The name's Killer, Flagship Killer

While Lu Weibing revealed that the K in K20 stands for "Killer", that is only half of the story. Redmi's teaser for the K20 in India reads "Congratulations, OnePlus! We heard about your new flagship. Regards Flagship Killer 2.0".

OnePlus earned the moniker Flagship Killer thanks to its value-for-money devices. This is the first hint at what Redmi is trying to do.

48MP IMX586 primary camera

The smartphone would feature a 48MP Sony IMX586 primary camera sensor. Redmi has currently employed this sensor in the Redmi Note 7S and Note 7 Pro.

Flagship-grade Snapdragon 855 processor

The Indian teaser for the smartphone reiterates the presence of Qualcomm's latest flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 855. This also goes in line with what Weibing said in an earlier Weibo post. We can expect this to be paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

Besides this, the Redmi K20 appeared on a Geekbench listing. It scored 3,500 and 11,100 on single-core and multi-core tests respectively.

Rebranding as Poco F2

Some reports suggest that a Pro variant of the Redmi K20 is also in the pipeline that may be renamed as the Poco F2 in markets outside China. Poco F2 is also due to be upgraded, so there is a high possibility this might happen.

Display and battery

A recent leak on Weibo reveals that the Redmi K20 might have a 4,000mAh battery that supports 27W fast charging. It also revealed that the smartphone will come with a 6.39-inch AMOLED display.

The pricing of the upcoming flagship isn't clear yet, but we expect it to be under the ₹30,000 price point.
