Our Opinion On The Price Cut
With these new price cuts, the Redmi K20 and the K20 Pro became even more attractive, as these phones offer a lot of premium features which are not generally seen on smartphones that are priced under Rs. 25,000. This could be the best time to grab either one of these smartphones.
