Under-the-hood, the company has already confirmed that the Redmi K20 will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 octa-core processor and a 4,000mAh battery, which will be more than enough to keep the phone running for more than a day under mixed usage.

Guess what 3.5mm audio jack will find its place in the K20, which is sure exciting music enthusiasts. 
It will be backed by Android Pie-based MIUI 10 OS and most probably come with 6GB RAM+ 128GB storage and 8GB RAM+ 256GB storage options.

On the front, it is said to come with 20MP pop-up front camera. It is also said to support face unlock in addition to in-screen fingerprint sensor in the display.

Given the fact that Xiaomi openly challenging OnePlus 7 with Redmi K20 in recent past, fans can expect the new phone to cost the same or if not less.  In India, Xiaomi, based on Poco F1 pricing, may keep the price of K20 series anywhere between Rs 22,000 and Rs 30,000.
