There is no denying the fact that the Redmi K20 series is one of the most popular launched this year. Both the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro have sold like cupcakes both in China as well as in India (even the #overpriced could not stop the sales).
As if all this were not enough, Xiaomi has decided to take things to a whole new level with a new “Extreme Edition” of the Redmi K20 Pro.
Lu Weibing recently broke the news via his official Weibo handle. As per his posts, the Xiaomi Redmi K20 Extreme Edition (or whatever the name turns out to be) will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC which will be coupled with 12GB of RAM and a whopping 512GB of internal storage.
Furthermore, we will get a 64MP primary sensor coming up with the device (the make of the sensor, however, is unconfirmed as of now).
As it turns out, this will be a special variant and will be available in fairly limited stock.
As far as the launch date of the device is concerned, the special variant of the Redmi K20 Pro will be unveiled on September 19.
As of now, the rest of the specifications are not clear. That said, the rest of the specifications will most likely stay the same.
Furthermore, the chances of the special variant launching in India are highly unlikely as the fans of the K20 series have so far not been able to get anything ever since the devices have launched in the country (take the special Avengers edition for instance).
Meanwhile, the Redmi Note 8 series of smartphones appears to be making its way to India soon. Both the Note 8 and the Note 8 Pro have got the RF certification which clearly means that the launch is nearby. If the previously leaked reports are to be believed, we will get to see the lineup launching in the country on October 16.
The rumor that the Indian Note 8 Pro units will ship with a Snapdragon chipset hase finally got debunked and we will indeed be getting the devices running on the MediaTek G90T chipset in India as well.
