To remind you, the Redmi K20 was launched in India for Rs. 21,999 for the 6GB RAM with 64GB storage version and the 6GB RAM with 128GB storage version costs Rs. 23,999. The Redmi K20 Pro was launched for Rs. 27,999 for the 6GB RAM with 128GB storage version and the 8GB RAM with 256GB storage version costs Rs. 30,999, but the company has not launched the 8GB RAM with 128GB storage version of the K20 Pro in the country.
Since it has only been a week since the phones went on sale in India, we can’t expect a price cut soon, but it might get a price cut sometime later this year.
Other Redmi smartphones such as Redmi Note 7 Pro, Redmi 7 and Redmi 7A have received a price cut in China.
