We’ve seen some questionable naming details for Redmi’s upcoming flagship phone which will feature the Snapdragon 855. Yesterday, the brand’s General Manager Lu Weibing went on Weibo asking users to help with the naming of the new flagship and today he officially announced the upcoming device will be called the Redmi K20.
According to Weibing “K series is the performance flagship of Redmi and K is the killer first”. So we know where the K comes but why the 20 you may ask? Well, it seems that there is no exact reasoning behind the number apart from competing with Huawei as Weibing said his company has a lot to learn from Huawei’s approach to marketing.
The Redmi K20 will allegedly feature a 6.39-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen with a built-in fingerprint reader and Corning Gorilla Glass 6. The front camera will be mounted on a pop-up mechanism and sport a 20MP sensor. The highlight of the phone will be its Snapdragon 855 chipset – a first for the newly spun-off Redmi subbrand.
Around the back, the phone will feature a triple camera array with a 48MP main, 8MP ultra-wide and 16MP telephoto sensors. The battery will come in at 4,000 mAh with 27W fast charging support.
