Xiaomi has officially announced the inclusion of the newest device from its subsidiary Redmi, the Redmi K20 Pro in the Android Q Beta testing program. For now, only the flagship K20 Pro is included, no word on the K20 model.
The Android Q beta testing program will allow developers who purchase the new smartphone to already place the new version of the operating system signed by Google and build on that distribution itself.
With this, the Redmi K20 Pro is the third handset from Xiaomi to benefit from the Android Q beta, accompanying the Mi MIX 3 5G and Mi 9. It also hints that this may be another smartphone to be embraced by the developer community.
It should be noted that, because it is a testing program some inconsistencies can be observed, among which we can mention as more important the non-support to the phone. Below are the known issues you might encounter with the Redmi K20 Pro in Android Q Beta build:
- Does not support fingerprint module.
- “Settings” app crashes after user selects “App & Notifications” and shows a notification that says “Settings keeps stopping”
- Unable to switch between multiple users.
- There might be instances where videos downloaded from Google Drive does not show the length of the video in the photo gallery.
- Bluetooth search might not work for some specific keyboards. A known failed case is
- Logitech’s k380 keyboard.
The Redmi K20 and K20 are only available in the Chinese market and there is no information on arriving in the global market. We’ve recently reported that the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro might arrive as Poco F2 and Poco F2 Pro in India.
