Redmi k20 and pro launch is near imo.
Why? Yesterday there was sale of Redmi Note 7 pro on flipkart. Usually it’s gone in seconds, but yesterday it was available dor more then 5 minutes and that too on cod mode. ( Earlier cod was not allowed)
if any user purchased it earlier , flipkart didn’t allow second unit to that user, but yesterday I purchased second phone for my friend.

Redmi K20 is coming within a month with snapdragon 730. Realme 4 Pro is coming with snapdragon 730 and triple camera setup most probably under 16000. Why anybody will buy Redmi Note 7 Pro?
