Forums for the Redmi K20/Mi 9T, Redmi K20 Pro, and HTC U19e are now open
We’re always delighted to see the developer community embrace new devices and kickstart third-party endeavors intended to make the devices even better. So today, we’re adding dedicated forums for three newly launched smartphones with the anticipating significant momentum of development, especially considering the value proposition these devices offer.
Starting with the Redmi K20 Pro, the new flagship from Xiaomi’s spin-off brand Redmi has turned many heads since its launch last month. This is the first flagship-grade smartphone from Redmi and features a Snapdragon 855 with up to 8GB of RAM. The interesting features of the K20 Pro include its 3D glass back, pop-up selfie camera, in-display fingerprint reader, triple rear cameras besides its compelling price which starts below $400. We expect a lot of development for the smartphone as Xiaomi has released the kernel sources for the device already. A series of official teasers point that it shall be launching in India soon, so a dedicated XDA forum should help future buyers cherish custom mods, ROMs, etc.
Likewise, the Redmi K20, which was announced earlier this week as the Xiaomi Mi 9T for the European market, is also an attractive proposition. It comes with the same aesthetic elements as the Pro variant but a lesser powerful Snapdragon 730 chipset. The smartphone is also expected to launch alongside the K20 Pro in other Asian markets, so we foresee an abundance of development opportunities for the duo.
At the same time, HTC is hoping to bounce back from its sore smartphone business with the HTC U19e and the U19+. These are two premium looking smartphones but with mid-range specs and currently limited to the domestic market of Taiwan. Given features like the Snapdragon 710 SoC, 6GB RAM, dual rear cameras, 128GB storage, and more on the HTC U19e, we can expect that users might want to leave HTC’s Sense UI behind for more attractive options. Our dedicated forums should help users meet their needs for customizing their smartphones.
