Xiaomi has put the rumours regarding the name of the Redmi K20 in India to rest. Previously, it was reported that company’s sub-brand Redmi might launch the phone as Poco F2 in the country, but now, Manu Kumar Jain, Managing Director Xiaomi India and Global Vice President, has confirmed that the phone will be called the Redmi K20 in India as well. He shared a bunch of images on Twitter to confirm the development.

The images shared by Jain not only confirmed that the phone will be called the Redmi K20, but they also took a dig at the recently-launched OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro smartphones. All the Redmi K20 hoardings were placed alongside the OnePlus 7 Pro ads at various locations in India. The promos have a neat wordplay, claiming the phone to be “Starkly Superior To The Latest One.”

If you don’t know, OnePlus has roped-in Robert Downey Jr. as the brand ambassador and he has been seen promoting the OnePlus 7 Pro. The wordplay in Redmi K20 ads makes the dig obvious as it uses “Starkly” to highlight Downey’s role as Tony Stark in Marvel movies. The font of the word “One” is the same as the one in the OnePlus logo. Also, there is a mention of “+1” where the top executive is asking to like and share his tweet.
