Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro ‘Will Not Have Ad-Supported Monetisation,’ Says Xiaomi: What It Actually Means

Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro are Xiaomi’s most recent launches in the market, beginning at a price of CNY 2193 (roughly $ 318) and CNY 2790(roughly $ 405) respectively. This makes the K20 team the most costly Redmi phones in the market. While the Redmi K20 Pro price has been pretty well received, its increasingly affordable sibling has been the gotten in a bit of storm about its price tag, constraining Xiaomi to speak up on the problem.

“For a premium series, like the [Redmi] K-series that Xiaomi is going to launch today, we are somewhat looking at an alternate model here where these will not have ad-supported monetisation,”. Yet it doesn’t mean the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro will be without altogether of monetisation methods.

“Before everybody bounce on this particular question, [let me clarify]. I think, a ton of times, it has been misjudged, this entire thing, since we say we monetise our OS, which is valid, and the first item we built was the OS. And we monetise it in several different ways — we have Mi Music, we have Mi Video, numerous different things. And we essentially pay for content, we pay for a great deal of these services, right? Like we likewise have to pay, right? We have Mi Pay, our UPI stage. And we monetise a significant number of them.”

“Promotions is much the same as an extremely little piece of it, which people basically have made a huge deal about, that’s what I personally feel. Also, regardless of whether people don’t feel bad about it, yet it’s only great to express terrible words about Xiaomi about this specific thing.”

“An enormous number of brands fundamentally do this — almost everybody does this, right, in some form or the other, right… almost everybody who does some type of monetisation. Just because we’ve straightforwardly spoken about it is the reason basically people come and pounce upon us.”

“Practically any device, you can switch it off. I believe we’re the main ones — where people are, different brands are, putting monetised substance out there — we are the main ones who’re really talking about it, and furthermore giving an alternative to opt out,”.

In our experience, the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro for sure don’t show ads in specific places where other Xiaomi phones do, yet notification spam from apps like Mi Music and Mi Video is as yet something a few users might discover issue with. At least that issue is easier to solve by disabling notifications from the offending apps.
