The Redmi K20 and Realme X are two very similar devices that aren’t separated by much, but that’s not to see that both devices are identical. So, let’s take a look at the main areas of both phones.
The Redmi K20 gets an 8nm Snapdragon 730 SoC which can deliver better power efficiency and performance than the previous generation Snapdragon 710 chipset on the Realme X. The K20 also gets a bigger battery capacity as compared to the Realme X.
The rear camera system on the K20 features a 48-megapixel primary sensor, 8-megapixel telephoto lens and 13-megapixel ultra-wide lens as compared to the 48-megapixel primary and 5-megapixel depth sensor on the Realme X.
The Realme X might be the cheaper of the two options, but it is still early to tell. The addition of the telephoto and ultra-wide lenses on the Redmi K20 will undoubtedly give users more to work with. While the Redmi K20 features an upgraded Snapdragon 730 SoC, several reports claim the Realme X Indian version could get a processor upgrade, but we’ll just have to wait and find out.
