This is probably not a good idea. The K20 and K20 pro are budget phones. Adding gold to it makes it what? "A costly budget"? No matter what it's coated with, it'll remain the same... Its like wearing a gold plated flip-flops.
John, 16 Jul 2019Meanwhile, we're still waiting for the Mi 9T Pro to make its appearance...I'm still doubtful the K20 Pro will be rebranded as the Poco F2, no news on that front yet except for what GSMArena wrote a couple of months ago. Hopefully Xiaomi has things in the works for a proper successor that has a MicroSD slot.

HAHAH exactly. All Xiaomi oppo huawei budget phones are super thrash. Same for Samsung.
Just some marketing to build some hype around the K20. Probably a "very limited" edition.
I don't want K intials, I want my intials on the back..
Crap... keep your K with you redmie. No one's gonna faunt that he is a killer. If mi would have been written it was understandable.
Well done Xiaomi. Ppl with money to waste will definitely buy. For the rest of us I think the blue colour is best!

Just because same phone from apple or Samsung would cost 5-10 times more and because a money hungry companies which sells their devices with 500% price increase from manufacturing price is like a robbery on a customer which i would never support no matter what.
I seriously doubt they will produce numerous units of this. Most likely these will be made based on preorders... that is if this isn't simply a big joke.

wtf are they thinking? sure both phone are the best in their price range, but do they really think it can compete with $1000++ phone?

This will give losses to the company. I don't think anyone would have the money and mind to buy this. I don't remember seeing anyone wielding a Stuart Hughes custom phones (if I remember correctly).
I don't think anyone with the money to afford this thing would actually do it. And the reason why is because Xiaomi brand is associated with budget and affordable, cheaper products, not with luxury. To add to that Redmi brand is even more budget oriented and regular version of these phones is below $500, it may have made a bit of sense if they did it with Mi MIX 3 or some more expensive phone, but it simply doesn't make any sense with a $300 phone. It's like a gold plated Corvette. That cars is high performance and really good looking, but anything but luxury
