The Snapdragon 855, with its tri-cluster architecture (1 x Prime core, 3 x Gold cores, 4 x Silver cores) and 7nm architecture, gives Redmi K20 Pro immense processing prowess, making it one of the most powerful smartphones in the world.
Redmi K20 Pro comes with 48MP AI primary camera with Sony IMX586 sensor, along with an 8MP 2x telephoto camera and 13MP ultra-wide camera with a 124.8° field of view.
