“The new Redmi K20 Pro teaser image shows the special edition variant will have a gold body with diamond-encrusted K at the bottom right corner”
Xiaomi will be launching a Redmi K20 Pro variant with gold and diamond-encrusted body in India. The company’s global Vice President and India Managing Director Manu Kumar Jain has teased the launch of this special edition Redmi K20 series smartphone. Going by the teaser, it is not clear if this special version will be of the standard model, the Pro, or both; however, we can expect it to be of the Pro model at least. While Xiaomi is known for offering feature-loaded offerings with budget pricing, this could be something of an ‘out of the world’ product from the brand. This Redmi K20 series model will be introduced alongside the other variants in the series tomorrow in India.
