Xiaomi to discontinue its best-selling Redmi K20 Pro in February
Xiaomi has decided to discontinue the Redmi K20 Pro, one of its best-selling smartphones to date, in this month itself. According to the company's Vice President, Lu Weibing, the sales of the K20 Pro will be closed in February. However, the discontinuation might be limited to China only, considering a Xiaomi India executive has said the handset will continue to remain available in India.
Xiaomi has shipped over 5 million Redmi K20 Pro
According to Weibing's post, Xiaomi has shipped over 5 million units of the Redmi K20 Pro since its launch in China in May last year. However, the company has now decided to discontinue the well-received handset in this month itself. Notably, Weibing's post doesn't clarify whether the decision is limited to China only, or if it will be implemented in other markets as well.
In India, the phone will continue to remain available
According to an official statement from a Xiaomi India executive (via Gagdet360), the handset will not go off the shelves in India. "Redmi K20 series will continue to be available in India as it's our number one premium smartphone series," said the Xiaomi India executive.
