Xiaomi first releases the new Redmi K20 and K20 Pro in Asia, but there also appears to be a European release. Several rumors claim that the Xiaomi Redmi K20 (Pro) appears in the Netherlands as the Mi 9T (Pro). We know this so far.
Redmi K20 possible to the Netherlands
The Redmi K20 and K20 Pro were presented this week as premium smartphones at competitive prices. The devices appear in India and China, among others, but the manufacturer seems to have an international release in mind. The Russian tech site Hi-tech mail writes that from next month Xiaomi will also sell the K20 and K20 Pro in Russia. The Redmi K20 would appear as the Xiaomi Mi 9T, while the K20 Pro will be renamed the Mi 9T Pro. That information corresponds to previously leaked information from smartphone Ishan Agarwal.
That the Redmi K20 series – under a different name – seems to be coming to Russia increases the chance that smartphones will also appear in Europe. A Dutch release is then obvious. Xiaomi sells devices such as the Mi 9, Mi 9 SE and Redmi Note 7 here through various large (web) stores. At the end of March, the company also announced that it would be opening its first physical stores in the Netherlands later this year.
In China, the Redmi K20 appears from the equivalent of 220 euros and the K20 Pro from 320 euros. Hi-tech mail claims that the K20 in Russia will cost 345 euros converted. The K20 Pro should yield a minimum of 483 euros.
In Russia, all smartphones are considerably more expensive than in China and Europe. It is therefore difficult to say how much the Redmi K20 (Pro) will cost in the Netherlands. Xiaomi has not yet announced a European release.
Xiaomi Redmi K20 (Pro) specifications
The Xiaomi Redmi K20 and K20 Pro have a 6.35 inch full HD OLED display with a fingerprint scanner under the screen. The smartphones have a 4000 mAh battery and a minimum of 6GB memory and 64GB storage space.
The selfie camera slides out of the top of the housing, a feature that we also see on the OnePlus 7 Pro and Oppo Reno. There are three cameras on the back, including a wide-angle lens. The Pro version has better cameras, a faster Snapdragon 855 processor and a battery that charges faster. Both devices run on Android 9.0 (Pie) with the MIUI shell from Xiaomi.
