Although with no much buzz in Nigeria surrounding its launch, Xiaomi’s recent inquest in the Nigerian market has seen lots of advert placements featured all over the country and the hope is that in no time, the Redmi K20 Pro will be able to breach the gap between midrange and the flagship device choice.

The Redmi K20 Pro runs on Android 9 Pie with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip processor sitting on top and the efficient Adreno 640 GPU for your gaming experience. A 6GB RAM and 64GB storage space erase all the need for an SD card.

The Redmi K20 Pro has a 6″ inch screen with 1080 x 2340 px (FHD+) display on the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 which seems huge but so is the 48/8MP Sony IMX586 Exmor RS primary and secondary sensor all packing dual LED capabilities.

You don’t need a helping hand to differentiate between a flagship-grade smartphone from a midrange but the Redmi K20 Pro design will leave you in a bewildered state as to which category it definitely falls in.

First off, the Redmi K20 comes in a glass est plastic design in its stride. A curved 3D glass body which houses all the usual smartphone elements; from the in-display fingerprint sensor, primary and secondary LED flashlight sensors, the headphone jack down to that pop-up camera at the very top.

On the front of the Redmi K20 Pro, there’s a 6.39-inch Full HD+ AMOLED notchless display which also houses a seventh generation in-display fingerprint scanner. With this expansive display, the K20 Pro gets a screen-to-body ratio of 91.9%.

Viewing angles on the K20 Pro is nothing short of cinematic with the device packing a 19:5:9 which is pretty much exceptional for viewing social media and local library content.

Redmi K20 Pro Battery

Having 4,000mAh battery in flagships might not be the BEST YET but have definitely come to be the mainstay in 2019 smartphones and the Redmi K20 Pro is no exception.

The fast charge technology embedded in this flagship has to be the major highlight with the device getting a 27W fast charging with the monster capability to charge the 4,000mAh battery within 80 minutes.

Redmi K20 Storage and Performance

The amount of storage packed in a device also speaks volumes as it’s a big determinant during a smartphone purchase given how much content people want to store in these companion handheld devices.
Expanded storage means more photos, files and video contents can be stored on the K20 Pro but Xiaomi might have made a huge mistake/flaw/has-all-bases-covered or whatever you might call it by leaving out the possibility of a Micro Sd card slot(None).
However, the Redmi K20 Pro comes in four different storage and performance variants for the RAM and local storage – 6GB/64GB, 6GB/128GB, 8GB/128, and 8GB/256GB. They’ve sort of got everything definitely got everything covered for you.
The Qualcomm Adreno 640 might be every mobile gamer’s dream as it outputs heavy but great gaming experience while maintaining the best temperature level for which the K20 Pro device can operate.
Heavy graphics demanding games like Fortnite, FIFA and Asphalt Nitro are a big steal here, no lagging of any sort!
