The Redmi K20 Pro went on sale a few days ago, and the first batch of more than 200,000 units was completely sold out in 1 hour and 45 minutes. The original model and the Pro version will go on sale again on June 6. What’s more amazing, with the launch of this handset, Xiaomi returned to the mark of 1999 yuan ($289). On this regard, Redmi general manager Lu Weibing has begun to promote this event and released a video on Weibo a clip video, adding ‘1999 yuan is a testimony of an era, this time Redmi K20 returned to 1999 yuan. Pay tribute to the times.’
Later, he explained that ‘1999 is a price tag with a sense of history and ritual. In the past, it was a very competitive price to satisfy the Mi fans longing for the flagship product. Today, the cost structure of the smartphone has undergone tremendous changes, and the real return of the flagship to 1999 is no longer possible. We used today’s flagship processor (Snapdragon 730) with all other aspects of the flagship configuration to meet the requirement of the price of many Mi fans for 1999.’

In other words, Lu Weibing believes that the price of 1999 yuan cannot cover the current (Snapdragon 855) flagship phone costs, and can only use the sub-flagship processor Snapdragon 730 to set the price of 1999 yuan.
At present, the Redmi K20 8GB+256GB version is priced at 2,599 yuan, providing three colors of flame red, carbon black and glacier blue.
