“Xiaomi sold 4.5 million units of the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro since their launch a little over six months ago”
4.5 million Xiaomi Redmi K20 and K20 Pro units have been sold globally. The company has announced the Redmi K20 series shipments has crossed the mark in a little over six months since its launch. The smartphones were launched back in May in China, before making its way to India in July. The Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro both come with pop-up selfie camera design, a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED display, 48MP triple rear cameras, and 4,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging tech. The only difference between the two is the chipset – the regular model of the phone rocks Snapdragon 730 SoC, while the Redmi K20 Pro is powered by Snapdragon 855 chipset.
Xiaomi revealed the Redmi K20 sales during the Redmi K30 launch event in China earlier this week. While the number is quite significant, the exact units sold in India remain vague. The handsets faced some criticisms from fans, especially due to its high price tag. To recall, the Redmi K20 price in India started at Rs 21,999.
