Over the weekend, Saturday 10, to be precise, Xiaomi Kenya will be at Giwa House along Nairobi’s Moi Avenue to open a new Mi Store. During the event, the company will have lots of devices selling at discounts of up to 90%, but that won’t be all.
We already know of the impending arrival of the Xiaomi Mi Band 4. The company, through a recent tweet, also confirmed that the Mi TV Box S is also coming to Kenya this weekend. In fact, you can already pre-order these two ahead of their official arrival, but price details are still unknown.
Speaking of unknowns, Xiaomi Kenya hadn’t said much about the availability of the Redmi K20 in the country. But going by the information provided on its landing page, the company is set to unveil the K20 in the country this weekend.
The Redmi K20 has been causing waves in the few markets it has set foot thanks to not only what is a modern-day design, but also some solid performance and photography specs. The battery capacity is also great and so is the Super AMOLED display screen on board.
Below are the major specs of the Redmi K20.
- 6.23-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC
- 6GB RAM, 64GB or 128GB non-expandable storage
- Tri-lens 48MP + 8MP + 13MP main camera
- 20MP motorized pop-up selfie camera
- 4000mAh battery
- Android 9 Pie with MIUI 10
- Extras: Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C, 3.5mm audio jack, under-display fingerprint scanner, 18W fast battery charging, NFC, etc.
In India, the 6/64GB variant of the Redmi K20 goes for INR 21,999 while the 6/128GB model goes for INR 23,999. When converted, these prices equate to about Kshs 32,000 and Kshs 35,000, respectively, but these aren’t the official prices for the Kenyan market.
Also, Xiaomi Kenya hasn’t said a thing regarding the superior Redmi K20 Pro and its local availability, so we’ll have to wait. The Snapdragon 855-powered handset is already available for purchase in the Asian sub-continent priced at an equivalent of about Kshs 41,000 for the base model.
