What Does The First Addition Of The Flagship Snapdragon Core Bring To The Redmi K20 Pro?


[Bestbuy618 Mobile Channel]On May 28, the Redmi K20 series, the first flagship after Redmi brand independence, was officially launched; the K20 series’ most impressive feature is that it is “ruthless enough to beat its own people.” After all, the Redmi K20 Pro hardware configuration shows the determination to enter the high-end flagship, 2019 flagship must-have Snapdragon 855 mobile platform, 27W wired fast charging, rear IMX 586 4800 pixel lens, including 6.39-inch Samsung screen, and even a larger than Xiaomi 9 4000mAh battery, it is no surprise why Lu Weibing jokingly called Xiaomi 9 “Friends” many times at the launch.

The first is the “purple” color scheme on the back of the box, as well as the Daimler cartoon logo image, which is intended to appeal to children. The Redmi K20 Pro comes in three color options: Flame Red, Glacier Blue, and Carbon Black. The Redmi K20 Pro comes in three different colors: Flame Red, Glacier Blue, and Carbon Fiber Black.

The Flame Red and Glacier Blue are coated with multiple layers to create an extremely rich light effect; however, because the review machine I received this time is the carbon fiber black version, I am unable to provide you with a beautiful picture. However, according to hands-on experience, the flame red version of the body on both sides of the flame pattern in the room under a slight rotation of light, you can clearly feel the “flame” design sense; however, the carbon fiber black version is more textured, and the side power button is accented with a red design, which also looks less monotonous. The top bezel is narrower than on the Xiaomi 9, and the weight is 191g, which is slightly higher than on the Xiaomi 9.

The large 4000mAh battery and pop-up lens design are expected to complicate the internal structure of the body. Redmi K20 Pro (left) and Xiaomi Mi 9 (right).

The thicker body solves the camera protrusion problem of the Xiaomi 9, and there is enough space for the pop-up camera as well as the 3.5mm headphone jack. The red breathing light design in the lift module of the K20 Pro is also a small detail surprise. Of course, the lift camera is also arranged with six pop-up sound effects, including xylophone, magic, hatch, eagle eye, mech, and gear. Furthermore, K20 Pro supports 27W wired fast charging, as for power consumption, after a game of nearly half an hour of “Peaceful Elite”, the battery power dropped from 61 percent to 53 percent, and a game down did not feel the obvious heat.

According to Lu Weibing, the slogan of the K20 Pro is “True flagship, dare K.O,” which can be said to be quite confident of the performance experience of the K20 Pro.

True flagship, of course, without the help of Snapdragon 855, according to the data at the launch, Redmi K20 Pro official Rabbit run score 388,803 points, Tianmei actual test basically remained at 370,000, two times the data were 369,971 points and 371,466 points, also located in the camp of flagship models. Gamers are most concerned with the GPU, and the Snapdragon 855’s integrated Adreno 640 GPU boosts graphics rendering speed by 20% while also providing users with a smoother gaming experience. Furthermore, for the first time on a mobile device, Snapdragon 855 supports Vulkan 1.1, optimizing the game from the “bottom up,” allowing the hardware’s processing power to be more fully utilized in the game, while also bringing a 20% reduction in power consumption. Taking advantage of Snapdragon 855’s excellent performance, the K20 Pro supports Game Turbo 2.0 technology, which improves performance, touch, display, sound quality, network, and in-game caching.

According to the introduction, this feature can optimize the contrast of dark areas and improve screen visibility; in the game “Peace Elite,” the dark environment can show higher brightness details; of course, this is not possible without the overall gaming experience enhancement provided by Snapdragon Elite Gaming of Snapdragon 855. The Snapdragon Elite Gaming has a plethora of features that can support system-level game lag optimization solutions, anti-cheat extensions, and unique loading optimization solutions that can further improve game loading speed.

The Snapdragon 855’s 7nm process ensures performance while balancing power consumption. Furthermore, the Redmi K20 Pro employs 8-layer graphene stereo heat dissipation technology, which claims a 650 percent increase in heat dissipation when compared to single-layer graphite heat dissipation, and adds thermal gel to the back of the motherboard, allowing heat to be dispersed to external spaces from the top and bottom, reducing temperature rise caused by heat buildup.

In terms of battery life, the Redmi K20 Pro range has improved compared to the Xiaomi 9, using a large 4000mAh battery, combined with the Snapdragon 855 stable performance output, so that users have been playing a straight cool. Photography: still the familiar taste The flagship triple camera photo combination, combined with ultra-wide angle mode, the addition of Qualcomm’s fourth generation AI Engine, particularly the joint efforts of Qualcomm and a wide range of AI ecosystems The K20 Pro has good control over details and layering, as evidenced by the real-world sample photos.

By analyzing the viewfinder, the K20 Pro automatically suggests whether to use the ultra wide angle mode, and the accuracy is still quite high in practice. As you can see from the sample photos, buildings and large landscapes have more visual impact in ultra wide angle mode. For the problem of lens distortion at the edge of wide-angle lens sample photos, K20 Pro will open the “ultra-wide angle distortion correction” setting by default, which will also alleviate it to some extent.

Without ultra wide angle Ultra wide angle is not turned on

Open super wide angle In addition to super wide angle, Super Night View is a well-known flavor. With 4-in-1 1.6m large pixels, multiple exposure HDR, AI intelligent metering, AI anti-shake auto calibration, and more light intake while ensuring brightness and dark details of the image, the K20 Pro supports handheld Super Night View. The front 20 million pop-up front camera, covered with a sapphire material cover, supports group shot beauty.

A new panoramic selfie mode has also been added. To take a panoramic selfie of up to 120 degrees, simply switch to the front camera and rotate it to the left and right, respectively.

The multi-person selfie is indeed a requirement, but our lady in several tests will appear a side of the “broken” phenomenon, it appears to want a complete panoramic selfie on the smoothness of the handheld is still very high requirements. Another thing The first time NFC was added to a Redmi product Dual-band GPS, which has been available since the Xiaomi 8, is also available on the Redmi K20 Pro.

While it supports 27W fast charging, only the 18W plug is standard; it does not support wireless fast charging; it does not support infrared remote control; and it does not support dual speakers.

Redmi’s first flagship, the K20 Pro, was a departure with the flagship Snapdragon Core 855, and the first shot left a strong enough impression. The K20 is powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 730 mobile platform, which uses the same fourth-generation Kryo architecture as the Snapdragon 855 and was dubbed the “little Snapdragon 855” at the launch event by Lu Weibing. When compared to the Snapdragon 710, single-core performance is 35% higher, GPU performance is 10% higher, and AI performance is more than twice as good.

With Snapdragon 730 support, the Redmi K20 experience is also worth anticipating; in fact, after the release of the Redmi K20 Pro, Tianmei is even more interested in how the MIX series will be upgraded in the future. After all, with the MIX series’ positioning, it still requires a breakthrough point that is amazing enough that we can imagine it to our hearts’ content.
