In terms of body design there is a big breakthrough and it is beautiful. There are three different colors available: in flame red, glacial blue and carbon black for the K20 Pro. Xiaomi make used of Kevlar texture technology for the back, making the phone looks a little bit aesthetic. At the same time, there is a 3D arc design on the body, which makes it comfortable to hold in the hand.
The effect of taking pictures on the mobile phone is quite good. The K20 Pro is equipped with a pop-up camera lens with a sapphire lens cover, which Redmi has claimed will protect the lens from frequent use and Scratches, you will hear a sound effect whenever the front camera is activated and popping up. You can also select up to 6 different sound effects in settings. The front 20 megapixel lens also has the Ai beauty mode, with an option to disable it when taking pictures.

At first glance, the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro use the same triple cameras, but there are some differences between them. In the Pro version, we have the 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor is installed, while the younger model received an unknown Sony IMX582 module with the same resolution. The technical parameters are almost identical except for one thing: the IMX582 only supports 4K video recording at a frequency of 30 fps. Probably, the manufacturer chose this sensor because of the Snapdragon 730 processor, which does not support shooting at 4K @ 60 fps. You should know that both the camera now has a new laser focusing feature which is 3 times more powerful than ordinary focus.
