Xiaomi Redmi K20 Full Specifications & Features in details

Redmi K20 Design

Xiaomi Redmi K20 Design: The design of the Redmi K20 is one of its biggest attractions. The flame-inspired gradient pattern on the rear panel of our Glacier Blue Review unit looks eye-catching, while the black bar in the middle contrasts with the dynamic pattern on both sides.

Xiaomi calls this aura prime design and says that it has been achieved using a 6-layer stacking process. The back of the Redmi K20 phone is made of curved gorilla glass. This design has been seen in the Glacier Blue and Flame Red variants of the phone, but Xiaomi also offers the Redmi K20 in the Carbon Black variant.

The curved glass panel ensures a comfortable grip, but the Redmi K20 is quite slippery and the rear panel also smoothes out quickly. Thankfully the retail package includes a tougher protective case that has a matte finish and provides a more assured grip. The frame series running around the edges of the phone is made of 6000 aluminum and matches the color scheme of the rear panel. Overall, the Redmi K20 is solidly built and gives a premium feel to the gate.

The phone has Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back. The volume and power buttons are comfortably positioned to the right, and both provide good tactile feedback when pressed. The power button has a red accent and stands out from the rest of the body. The camera module on the back of the Redmi K20 is slightly stretched, but it is not enough to stagger the phone while lying flat.

Redmi K20 pop-up front camera module has LED lights that glow when lifted in dark surroundings. It also has a small ring at the top which lights up and acts as the notification light of the phone, but most of the time it is difficult to notice when the phone is flat.

Redmi K20 Display and Performance

Redmi K20 Display and Performance: The 6.39-inch AMOLED display of the Redmi K20 is superb, and this is especially evident when MIUI's Dark Mode is enabled. The colors just pop, and the viewing angles are also good. The display offers a peak brightness of 600 nits, but we did not feel the need to shine up to 80 percent brightness even in daylight.

Sunlight's legability was also good and the contrast level for a phone in this price segment was excellent. Reading emails and viewing content on the Redmi K20 display was easy on the eyes. However, we found that screen brightness was sometimes adjusted incorrectly, requiring us to manually reset it using the slider in the notification shade.

Redmi K20 has full-screen display looks great and is also good for viewing content without a camera hole or without a notch.

The AMOLED panel is slightly warmer by default, but one color can adjust the temperature and be the opposite of their choice. Users can set the brightness and temperature of the night mode independently, and there is also a reading mode. To sum up, the Redmi K20's display is the best in its price bracket.

The Redmi K20 had no problem with high-end games. We played PUBG Mobile in high graphics settings and did not see any noticeable frame drop or stutter. Xiaomi has implemented some neat features and claims to increase speed with its Game Turbo 2.0 tool.

The Snapdragon 730 of the Redmi K20 is not at the level of the Snapdragon 845, which empowers many of the previous year's flagship which are still around Rs. 25,000. But it is a solid upgrade over the Snapdragon 710 and Snapdragon 675, both of which are now very common at this price level.

Redmi K20 Cameras and Battery

Redmi K20 Cameras and Battery: The Redmi K20 offers the same camera hardware as the flagship Redmi K20 Pro, and makes a solid statement for a phone that costs about two-thirds as much as the budget flagship OnePlus 7 (review) or Asus 6Z (review). The third rear camera is an added bonus.

The camera takes 12-megapixel pixel-binned photos by default, but has a 48-megapixel mode if you need full-resolution 48-megapixel photos. Images captured by the main sensor are crisp and contain a lot of detail. Dynamic range is also good. We notice that the Redmi K20 captures images at high ISO levels by default in daylight, and some of our shots are slightly oversized.

Redmi K20 dedicated night mode helps reduce noise and increase brightness, but details and colors are missing. Night mode simply increases ISO and does little to speed up objects in the frame. Nevertheless, compared to the regular mode, the Night mode does a good job with the theme display.

The low-light images captured by the wide-angle camera are also suppressed with poor exposure, lack of detail and grainy texture. We found that the Motorola One Vision (Review) Night Mode was better than its implementation on the Redmi K20. It is also notable that the wide-angle camera cannot take advantage of night mode.

The 20-megapixel pop-up selfie camera makes up for some of the drawbacks of rear cameras. The selfie captured by the 20-megapixel front camera demonstrated minimal over-processing, and this phone could capture natural colors with an impressive amount.

The portrait selfie had good subject separation and edge detection, but they are slightly less sharp than regular selfies. With the front camera or in dimly lit environments we only have a lower grip range and lack of sharpness with the front camera. 4K videos capture a good amount of detail and feature natural colors. OIS is not, but EIS does a commendable job of negating hand movements. Dynamic range is also better than 4K videos captured by phones that fall under the same price bracket.

Redmi K20 Software

Xiaomi Redmi K20 Full Specifications & Features | Mobiles11

Redmi K20 Software: The hardware of this phone is almost as expensive as the Redmi K20 Pro, which has two major differences. The Redmi K20 Pro is powered by Snapdragon 855 and employs a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor for its primary rear camera, while the Redmi K20 gets the Snapdragon 730 SoC and is equipped with a slightly lower-end 48-megapixel Sony IMX582 sensor.

The only difference between the two sensors is that the Sony IMX586 can record 4K video at 60fps, while the Sony IMX582 can only go up to 30fps. Xiaomi apparently went with the latter because the Snapdragon 730 does not support 4K video encoding at 60fps anyway.

The Redmi K20 features a 6.39-inch full-HD + (1080 x 2340 pixels) HDR AMOLED display with 19.5: 9 aspect ratio, an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 91.9 percent, 403ppi pixel density and 600 nits of peak brightness.

The in-display fingerprint sensor on the phone is quite quick and accurate, and unlocked the Redmi K20 within a second during our usage. While setting the fingerprint sensor, we were warned that using an adhesive screen protector could interfere with the scanner, and only an authorized protective cover compatible with the phone should be used.

Talking about camera features, the Redmi K20 supports slow-mo video capture at 960fps and 4K video capture at 30fps. There is a dedicated night mode, 48-megapixel mode, lighting effects, and a ton of beautification filters for play. The light is placed on a 4,000mAh battery, and this phone supports Quick Charge 3.0, so it can be topped with a given 18W fast charger.

Redmi K20 runs on MIUI 10.3.3 based on Android 9 Pie. Our review unit ran on Android security patch on May 2019, but we expect Xiaomi to roll out an update with the latest security patch soon.

The first thing we found about the Redmi K20 UI was the presence of an app drawer, which had been missing from MIUI for some time. This is thanks to the use of Poco Launcher. The rest of the interface is typical MIUI, with lots of customization options and useful features. The MIUI on the Redmi K20 feels slightly more sophisticated than its implementation on other Redmi series phones. The ambient display feature is a tidy touch, and we at the very least liked the dynamic wallpaper in which the sun changes its position on a circular path depending on the time of day.
