Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro are all set to become official tomorrow, and ever since the launch date was confirmed, the company has been dropping teasers to build up the anticipation. Redmi General Manager, Lu Weibing, has now revealed that the upcoming Redmi K20 series phones will come with dual-band GPS support to enhance the positioning accuracy and speed of location detection. Additionally, an alleged marketing image of the Redmi K20 has surfaced in China and it shows a pop-up selfie camera and the phone itself sporting a gradient blue design. An alleged image of the Redmi K20 Pro has popped up online as well, with some of its key specifications in tow.
Starting with the presence of dual-band GPS, Weibing said in a post on Weibo that the upcoming Redmi flagship smartphone, most likely referring to both Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro, will utilize dual-band GPS technology and will be capable of using L1 and L5 satellite signals simultaneously to improve the positioning accuracy and speed.

This is the first time that a new color variant of the Redmi K20 has broken cover, ever since the first official look at the phone sporting, a red gradient design was released earlier this month.
