The back shimmering design was one of a kind as well. Xiaomi put a lot of efforts into the K20 which made it a great all-rounder phone.
The Redmi K20 was equipped with Snapdragon 730 which even till this day, variants of the particular SoC are being used such as Snapdragon 720G, Snapdragon 730G/732G found on most Xiaomi and Realme phones.
On the software end, Redmi K20 came with Android 9 out of the box with MIUI 10. Well, Xiaomi is kind enough and is now rolling out a stable MIUI 12.5 update for Redmi K20. Do note that this is the Pilot release and thus most users will not receive it.
