Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro vs OnePlus 7 Pro: Xiaomi has finally launched its flagship K20 series in India which comprises of two smartphones – the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro – the latter claims to be the fastest in the world and is set to take on the OnePlus 7 Pro which was launched in India in May. Touted as the ‘flagship killer 2.0’, the Redmi K20 Pro comes with premium features like bezel-less display, pop-up camera, in-display fingerprint sensor and a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. The features are similar to what you get with the OnePlus 7 Pro but at a considerably lower price. I took a close look at both and here is the comparison result between both the devices in order to help you make the smart decision.
Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro vs OnePlus 7 Pro: Design and display
While OnePlus phones have always been a hit when it comes to their design, Xiaomi has done an incredible job with the K20 series as well. The K20 Pro gets a 3D curved glass body and comes in three attractive colour options: Glacier Blue, Flame Red and Carbon Black. Personally, I like the Flame Red colour the most as it truly brings the best out of this beast. The front camera has been replaced with a pop-up selfie which you also get on the OnePlus 7 Pro and there is also an in-display fingerprint scanner that allows a full screen display. The K20 Pro comes with a 6.39-inch AMOLED display which is smaller than the 6.67-inch AMOLED display that you get with the OnePlus 7 Pro.
Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro vs OnePlus 7 Pro: Performance
There is hardly anything to choose from here. Both the smartphones are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, sport a 4,000mAh battery and offer up to 256GB of onboard stoarge. With the K20 Pro, you get 27W fast charging, while OnePlus 7 Pro offers Dash Charge 30.
Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro vs OnePlus 7 Pro: Camera
Again, there is not much to decide here. Both the smartphones come with similar optics. The K20 Pro and the OnePlus 7 Pro have a triple rear camera setup with 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor. On K20 Pro, you get an 8-megapixel telephoto lens and a 13-megapixel wide-angle lens while the OnePlus 7 Pro offers an 8-megapixel telephoto lens and a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens. On the front, the OnePlus 7 Pro had a 16-megapixel selfie camera and the K20 Pro gets a 20-megapixel camera.
Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro vs OnePlus 7 Pro: Price
This is where the Redmi K20 Pro has truly trumped the OnePlus 7 Pro offering the entire packaging at just Rs 27,999 for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant while the 6GB RAM + 256GB storage variant has been priced at Rs 30,999. This is way less than what you pay for the OnePlus 7 Pro variants. The OnePlus 7 Pro price in India starts at Rs 48,999 for the base model and goes up to Rs 57,999.
Which one is better?
Going by the first look, the Redmi K20 Pro offers almost similar features as OnePlus 7 Pro for almost half the price. We spent a bit of time with the K20 Pro during the launch event and it looked impressive. However, a complete review will help understand the performance better and judge whether the smartphone delivers what it promises.
