1Redmi K20 Pro

Picking up where the Xiaomi Pocophone F1 left, Redmi K20 Pro is everything that a flagship smartphone should be. But in half of the price. Meaning, Redmi K20 Pro packs the best of Snapdragon 855 chipset, coupled with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, powerful 48MP triple-camera on the back and more just for Rs. 49,999. Honestly, this is a steal when compared to $1000 smartphones whose price has gone through the roof.

Aesthetically, the K20 Pro is stunning in design, the glaring back panel with gradients converging in the middle is something you can’t get your eyes off. And not to forget the all-screen 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display, without any noticeable chin, bezels, or obtrusive notch. However, the K20 Pro did face some controversy regarding the 20MP selfie camera when the famous YouTuber MKBHD called it “straight garbage”. But later this was resolved after as the Redmi informed the K20 Pro he had been sent to was a defective one.

Other than that little controversy, the K20 Pro is undoubtedly the new flagship killer and stands right by OnePlus 7.
