It’s been a month since Xiaomi asked fans to wait for Redmi K20 series India launch. The company had provided a tentative six week timeline, but there was no confirmed launch date back then. Now, it seems the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro will finally make it to India on July 17. Xiaomi India MD and Global VP, Manu Kumar Jain, has tweeted about the ‘Mi Pop’ event in New Delhi on July 17, asking Mi Fans to join them for celebration of Xiaomi’s 5-year anniversary.
Initial rumors were that Xiaomi would launch the Redmi K20 series on July 15, the same day when the company turns 5 in India. Interestingly, Realme has already announced their Realme X launch date for July 15, and it seems Xiaomi had to reschedule the launch accordingly.
Mi fans! #MiPop is back 🎉🎉
It's time to party! 🎊 Let’s have a fan-tastic celebration @ #MiPop @ 17th July in New Delhi.
