Redmi X Is Redmi K20, Redmi K20 Pro?
Meanwhile, talking about new flagships by Redmi, some very interesting details have emerged.
As per leakster Ishan Agarwal, Redmi X will be launched in two variants: They are Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro.
We had earlier speculated the same and had reported that Redmi X can be Redmi K20 Pro. As per the leaks, it seems confirmed that K20 and K20 Pro will be these new flagships.
This theory holds value, Redmi General Manager: Lu Weibing had earlier stated that the names of the new Redmi flagships are almost confirmed, and will be revealed soon. He had shared four possible names for this flagship: K20, P20, X20 and T20.
It seems that K20 has been indeed finalized.
But there has been no official remark from Xiaomi on this news. Probably, they will announce it tomorrow.
So far, we know that this flagship from Redmi will have Snapdragon 855 processor, and a 20MP pop-up selfie camera along with 48MP rear camera with triple camera setup will adorn the rear. Sony IMX586 sensor is also confirmed.
It will most probably support ultra-gaming mode, and will have Android Q support as well.
We will keep you updated, as more details come in.
