It’s been a while since Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi launched the flagship K20 series in China and India. We usually don’t see many activities around launched products by these manufactures, but it seems Xiaomi has something more lined up for the the K20 lineup. The company has put up a new Redmi K20-related teaser on its Chinese social media channels. Although, aside from the August 16 date there aren’t a lot of hints.
The teaser image shows off boxing gloves, similar to K20 marketing materials, noting the text “KO” (via GSMArena). What can be seen is that Redmi has partnered with ONE Championship, a Singapore-based sports media enterprise. It is expected that there might be a new variant of the phone, but there is no specific hint by the company. To recall, a Redmi K20 Pro variant with 12GB of RAM was spotted on TENAA, so it might turn out to be that announcement. But we’ll have to wait for August 16.
Redmi had launched the K20 and K20 Pro smartphones in China in May. At present, only the 6GB and 8GB RAM variants of Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro are on sale in China.
