The presentation of the new Xiaomi Redmi K20 will happen tomorrow, but that does not prevent that within 24 hours of its launch, new information continues to emerge. After dozens of leaks and rumors that revealed almost every detail of the smartphone, the first performance results have now emerged.
The Redmi K20 finally emerged on the Geekbench benchmark platform, where we can see its performance results. Being this a smartphone with a mid-range processor, the results are impressive. As already mentioned in several leaks, this will be one of the first smartphones to come equipped with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 730.
Mid-range smartphones already offer everything you need
Evolution in mid-range processors has been well above average, and SD730 is proof of that. The Xiaomi Redmi K20 achieved 2574 points in the single-core tests and an impressive 7079 points in the multi-core tests. Not enough to put itself side by side with the performance of the top-of-the-range SD855, the results are at the level of the still popular SD845.
In comparison, the Redmi K20 was able to present a considerably superior result in the single-core tests and a slightly lower result in the multi-core tests. The unit used in these tests had a total of 6GB of RAM, which may have influenced the results of the tests, since a variant with 8GB of RAM should be presented.
Redmi K20 is a top of the range disguised mid-range
Usually smartphones are classified according to the processor they have equipped. In this case, a processor of the Snapdragon 800 series would be considered top-of-the-range, while those with a Snapdragon 700 series are placed in the mid-range segment.
However, the performance level of the so-called ‘mid-range’ has already reached such a high level that most users will not even think they might need more. Therefore, it seems that more and more we should focus on its other specifications to determine if a smartphone should or should not be considered a top of the range.
It brings specs of making envy to many ‘tops of range’
In this situation, it will not be difficult to consider the Redmi K20 a top-of-the-range smartphone, just forget the fact that it arrives with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor. The manufacturer’s new smartphone will arrive with a 6.4 “AMOLED Full HD + without any notch or punch hole . A 7-generation fingerprint reader is still on the screen.
With regard to your memories, users will have available 3 variants:
- 4GB of RAM + 64GB of internal memory
- 6GB of RAM + 128GB of internal memory
- 8GB of RAM + 256GB of internal memory
The photographic capabilities of the Xiaomi Redmi K20 will surely surprise many users. This is the first smartphone from the upcoming manufacturer with a triple rear camera. This camera is composed of a main sensor of 48 megapixels (Sony IMX586), a secondary of 13 megapixels (superwide angle) and a third of 8 megapixels (telescopic lens). Dedicated to selfies, there will be a 20 megapixel pop-up camera.
Tomorrow will be the day that its price and availability will be revealed officially, but several rumors point to a price below € 250 for the most modest variant. Still, this would be a price almost impossible to resist for those who have a more limited budget.
