Smash hit Redmi K20 series passes 1m shipments and India is still to come
Xiaomi’s Redmi K20 series came as a pleasant surprise back in May, touting a pop-up camera design and cheap price tag. Now, the Chinese brand has confirmed that it has shipped one million devices.
The news comes via Xiaomi executive Donovan Sung, revealing that it hit the one million figure in a month. It’s worth noting that these are units shipped to retailers and other distributors, rather than devices sold to customers.
Great news, Mi Fans. Excited to announce that shipments of the #RedmiK20 series hit 1M units in the first month! 👍Thank you to our Mi Fans for your support! ❤️#Redmi #InnovationForEveryone pic.twitter.com/lCpkOSrJdC— Donovan Sung (@donovansung) July 1, 2019
Redmi’s high-end duo first launched in China, but the standard model also made its way to Europe several weeks ago as the Mi 9T. In any event, the figure is pretty encouraging for the Xiaomi sub-brand, and it’s only set to accelerate when the device series hits India in the coming weeks.
The Redmi K20 series stands out from the pack by being two of the cheaper devices with a pop-up selfie camera. The two phones also share an OLED screen with an in-display fingerprint sensor, a 4,000mAh battery, a 3.5mm port, and a similar triple rear camera trio.
The Pro model offers a Snapdragon 855 chipset, 27 watt fast charging, and a slightly different 48MP main camera (IMX586 vs IMX582 on the K20). Meanwhile, the standard Redmi device delivers a Snapdragon 730 processor, and 18 watt charging. Interested in the device series? Then you can check out the Mi 9T Amazon listing via the button below.
