It’s only been a handful of months since Redmi announced the Redmi K20 Pro, but the Xiaomi sub-brand announced today it will replace the phone with the Redmi K20 Pro Exclusive Edition.
According to Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing, the sub-brand will announce the phone September 19. He also hinted at the Exclusive Edition’s Snapdragon 855 Plus processor. Relative to the regular Snapdragon 855, the Snapdragon 855 Plus features a slightly-overclocked CPU and a GPU with a 15% performance boost.
The Redmi K20 Pro Exclusive Edition is different from the Redmi K20 Pro Signature Edition, which features a solid gold back and diamond logo. It also sports an stratospheric price tag of Rs. 480,000 (~$6,714) to match the high-end materials.
The rest of the Redmi K20 Pro Exclusive Edition might remain the same as the Redmi K20 Pro. That means a 6.39-inch FHD+ OLED display, an in-display fingerprint scanner, a rear triple camera system, the Snapdragon 855 processor, up to 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB of storage, and a 4,000mAh battery.
