The upcoming Redmi phone was also recently teased to come with a DC Dimming-supported display.

The Redmi K20 Pro is expected to debut with a Snapdragon 855 SoC, while the Redmi K20 could have a Snapdragon 730 SoC. The phones are also rumoured to come with the same 6.39-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display.

From the previous teasers, Xiaomi has confirmed the existence of a seventh-generation in-display fingerprint sensor.

Further, it is teased to come with a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 primary sensor that would be a part of the triple rear camera setup.

It is also confirmed that the Redmi K20 will pack a 4,000mAh battery with support for 27W fast charging technology. A recent teaser image also confirmed an all-new gradient back panel along with Redmi branding.

The Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro are presumed to run Android Pie with MIUI 10 on top. Recently, a teaser confirmed the presence of dual-band GPS for precise location tracking.
