Xiaomi India is expected to launch Redmi K20 Series in India in next two weeks and the new brand Realme will also announce Realme X in India on 15th July to compete with the base variant Redmi K20. Both the device packs identical specifications except few things and to clear all your doubt here is how both devices compete with each other; Realme X vs Redmi K20.
Design: Realme X vs Redmi K20
From the design aspect both the devices have a glass back and full-screen display without a notch. Although the design pattern on both the devices ain’t similar I will call it a tie. Since there is not a huge difference between design I would take both the designs.
Display: Realme X vs Redmi K20
Realme X flaunts 6.59-inch FullHD+ AMOLED display while Redmi K20 has slightly smaller 6.39-inch FullHD+ AMOLED display. Both gadgets features AMOLED panels and quality should be fine on both the device and I will have more to say when I get my hand-on.
Realme X and Redmi K20 feature Pop-up selfie camera to avoid the notches in the screen and to provide full-screen experience.
Camera: Realme X vs Redmi K20
Redmi K20 features 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor paired with a 13MP Ultra Wide camera sensor and 8MP Telephoto sensor. While Realme X features a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor paired with a 5MP depth sensor.
Even with the selfie camera, Redmi K20 gets a slight edge as packs 20MP f/2.0 sensor while Realme X packs 16MP f/2.0 shooter.
Redmi K20 offers more flexibility as it has more camera sensor that can be used as a various function. Both devices share a similar primary camera sensor but you can shoot Wide-Angle images and 2x zoom photos with Redmi K20; that gives it a slight edge.
Performance: Realme X vs Redmi K20
The Chinese variant of Realme X is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset and at the other hand, the Redmi K20 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 chipset. In case you don’t know, Snapdragon 730 is far better and powerful compared to Snapdragon 710 and that gives a big lead here.
Realme may launch Realme X in India with Snapdragon 730 but since it’s not confirmed let’s not take that in consideration.
Battery: Realme X vs Redmi K20
Realme X packs 4045mAh battery and that too supports 20W VOOC 3.0 charger that comes inside the box. However, Redmi K20 packs 4000mAh battery and supports 27W charger but inside the box, you will get an 18W charger which takes around 2 hours and 10 minutes to fully charge the device.
Well, At least in China there is an option to get 27W fast charger but QC4+ chargers are not available in India yet so you can’t utilize the technology. Realme X gets a slight edge over here.
OS: Realme X vs Redmi K20
Realme X runs on ColorOS 6 based on Android Pie. While Redmi K20 runs on MIUI 10 on top of Android Pie. I personally don’t like either of the customized OS but Redmi at least offers Bootloader unlock and the development is really good with the redmi device so I would pick Redmi K20 here.
Well, Not everyone is into development so your choice may vary. If you ask me, ColorOS basically looks like iOS and that notification panel looks weird to me.
Redmi K20 is expected to launch in India by 20th July and Realme X is confirmed to launch in India on 15th July. So, Let us know which device will you pick and why in the comments section below. The pricing of both the devices are unknown at this moment and we will let you know if we get any information.
