Xiaomi Redmi K20, K20 Pro India open sale goes live

India's top mobile-maker Xiaomi on Monday announced the Redmi K20 series open sale in India.

It's been barely three weeks since the new Redmi K20 and the K20 Pro launched in India and now, both the devices can be bought on Mi.com and Flipkart anytime. This is the fastest time, the company has ever announced the open sale of a new phone in India. Previously, it would take a couple or three months, if not more for Xiaomi to finally streamline the production to bridge the gap between the supply and consumer demand.

Now, prospective buyers can get their hands on Redmi K20 series phones without having to wait for the weekly flash sale.

Should you buy Xiaomi's new Redmi K20 series?
Yes, you can go for either of the Redmi K20 series variants as per your budget. Both the Redmi K20 and the K20 Pro are cost-effective phones.

During the launch event, I spent some time with the Redmi K20 Pro and have to say, it is truly a premium phone. I felt it when I held the device in my hands and the Aura Prime design language is visually appealing. Inside, it comes with Snapdragon 855 octa-core backed by Android Pie-based MIUI 10 OS, 6GB/8GB RAM, 128GB/256GB storage and a 4,000mAh battery with SonicCharge 27W fast charging support.

The Redmi K20 Pro boasts a feature-rich triple camera module having, one primary 48MP (with Sony IMX586 and F1.75 Aperture), 13MP telephoto lens and an 8MP 128-degree ultra-wide-angle-lens. On the front, it houses a pop-up 20MP snapper with face-unlock security capability.

On the other hand, the Redmi K20 too is a value-for-money phone. I have been using the device for more than two weeks and what impressed me the most is the camera, design, build quality and battery life.
