CONCLUSION

We tried to tell as much as possible about these smartphones, as well as point out the pros and cons. In our opinion, a lot will depend on the cost of the Redmi K20 Pro in Russia. According to the latest data, Redmi K20 and K20 Pro models will be sold only in China, and for the international market they will be called Xiaomi Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro, respectively. Changing the brand Redmi to Xiaomi, the price of a similar (for the filling) apparatus will change significantly, and not in the smaller direction.
