“Given the fierce competition between the two brands in India off late, this was expected”
Xiaomi’s standalone brand Redmi unveiled the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro smartphones in India yesterday at a starting price of Rs 27,999 and Rs 21,999, respectively. Now, taking a jab at this, Realme India on Twitter highlighted how the brand’s Realme X smartphone is Rs 5,000 cheaper than the standard Redmi K20 while offering the same full-screen design with a pop-up selfie snapper. Given the fierce competition between the two brands in India off late, this was expected. Though Realme X has a bigger 6.53-inch AMOLED display, the Redmi K20 hits it back with a more powerful and latest Snapdragon 730 SoC, triple rear cameras, and a bigger 4,000mAh battery at the helm.
