[Confirmed]: The Redmi K20 will sport a 4000mAh battery

Published

on

A recent report has confirmed that the upcoming Redmi K20 will sport a 4,000mAh battery. This was already pointed out numerous times in the past and now it is official.

A little, we received an intel which suggested that the device will be unveiled on May 29.

As per the leak, there will be 4 variants of the device:

  • 6GB/64GB
  • 6GB/128GB
  • 8GB/128GB
  • 8GB/256GB

More specifications of the device:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC
  • Adreno 640 GPU
  • 4000mAh battery
  • 27W fast charging
  • 6.39-inch OLED display
  • 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution
  • 19.5:9 aspect ratio
  • UFS 2.1 storage

To check out the live shots of the device, you can head to our existing coverage of the same.

Yesterday, we got a couple of funny tweets from Asus and Xiaomi which kind of threw an open challenge to the recently launched OnePlus 7 series of smartphones.

As it turns out, the Xiaomi Redmi K20 does have something in its pockets to back that tweet up. The device has recently appeared on the AnTuTu benchmark website and has given out a whopping score of 458754, thereby living up to its Demon King title.

As of now, the leading high score on the website belongs to the Xiaomi Mi 9. Clearly, the Redmi K20 has something down its sleeve to get this high a score (maybe the device will come with UFS 3.0 storage).

The Redmi K20 is reportedly going to feature a 6.39-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 6. There will be an under-display fingerprint scanner.

Under the hood, the device will be powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset which will be coupled with 8GB of RAM.

At the back, we will get a triple camera setup (48MP primary + 16MP telephoto sensor + 8MP ultra-wide). The front camera will be a 20MP unit which will pop out whenever required.

The battery of the device is tipped to be 4000mAh with 27W fast charging support.

As of now, this is all we know about the device, but we are sure to receive further intel on the same in the coming days.

Oppo K3 will be priced less than ¥1899 at the very least, company confirms

Published

on

oppo k3 display

Well, the Oppo K3 won’t be priced ¥1899 at the least. The upcoming Oppo K3 will be priced less than Yuan 1899. The company has made the news official via Weibo where it has hinted the “X” to be less than 8 at the very least. Don’t know what the X is? Check out our existing coverage of the same.

A little while ago, the live shots of the device also got leaked which showcased the device in all its glory.

The source of the images is unconfirmed, so we might as well take this leak with a pinch of salt. That said, the image shows off the Nebula Purple color variant of the device.

Furthermore, if we dig down a bit deeper, we can see the pop-up camera perfectly aligned at the middle, so there is little doubt as to whether the images are fake or not. The third image also reveals that there will be an always-on display mode coming up with the device.

Right ahead of the launch, the color variants of the device have got leaked. As per the report, the Oppo K3 will come in three color variants, namely

  • Nebula Purple
  • Secret Black
  • Morning White

The price of the device is kept secret (not completely as the company has given us a figure of 1X99 Yuan and asked us to guess as to what might replace the X).

Our wild guess is that the Oppo K3 will cost Yuan 1899.

Full specifications of the device –

  • 6.5-inch panoramic display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset
  • UFS 2.1 flash storage
  • LPDDR4x dual-channel memory
  • 8GB of RAM
  • 256GB of internal storage
  • Ultra-clear night view 2.0
  • 3765mAh battery
  • Game Boost 2.0
  • Under-display fingerprint scanner

Alongside the Oppo K3, the company is planning on launching a new bunch of VOOC chargers including a SuperVOOC car charger on May 23.

The new flash charger family products include 3 new mobile power supplies and 1 SuperVOOC car charger
