Realme used its official Twitter account to highlight how its Realme X is cheaper than the Redmi K20 while also offering a “Real Full Screen” display. We’ll just have to pretend like that chin isn’t there, right?

Anyway, the point here is that in the cut-throat Indian smartphone market Redmi and Realme are direct competitors, so one can’t let the other launch something and not respond in some way.
The Realme X does have a bigger screen than the Redmi K20 (around 5% more surface area), but the older Snapdragon 710 and not the 730 at the helm, and while the Realme starts at 4GB of RAM, the K20 goes up from 6. The K20 also has more cameras on the rear, pairing the main 48 MP sensor with an ultra-wide and a tele, and its battery is bigger too.
Whether or not all that is enough to warrant the INR 5,000 ($72 or 64) price differential is entirely up to you, of course. If you want to compare the two handsets in-depth, use our special tool here.
