Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro smartphones are now getting the new Sky Replacement feature that’ll enable users to change the colour of the sky and theme in a photo from a range of presets. This would make images more appealing and social media-ready. While the feature was exclusively introduced with the recently launched Mi CC9 and Mi CC9e smartphones, the Redmi K20 Pro and its younger sibling are now getting it as well via a software update. The feature can be accessed from the Gallery app by selecting a photo and editing with the preloaded filters.
