Remember when Xiaomi revealed plans to launch an even better and upgraded version of their recently released Redmi K20 Pro? The fast-rising smartphone brand has now introduced a much more scintillating and high-tech smartphone – Introducing the Redmi K20 Pro Premium.
The Redmi series has been the brand’s standout smartphone series in recent times and has yet again introduced another top-drawer into the category. This post looks at some of this smartphone’s core features and how much they would go for in the market.
Price of Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro Premium in Zambia
The Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro Premium has not been launched in Zambia yet nor is it available in the market for pre-order. Therefore, this makes it quite tricky to fix an estimated price it will go for when finally released. While the sale is expected to commence in some countries towards the end of September 2019, we are anticipating the smartphone will be available for purchase in Zambia before the end of the year.
With nothing certain yet, we expect the smartphone to go for anything between KW270,000 and KW280,000 when finally available for purchase. This, however, is subject to change based on factors including currency exchange rate, place and period of purchase and other similar factors.

Availability – This, perhaps, is one of the few low points of this smartphone. Like most other Xiaomi phones, the K20 Pro Premium might not be as readily available for purchase.
