Processor is considered as the brain of the smartphones. Everything you do on your smartphone depends on the processor. However, getting a high-end processor smartphones means investing in an expensive flagship smartphone. The amount of processing power you need depends on the tasks and applications you run on the phone. A processor performance mostly depends on two specifications; the number of cores and the clock speeds it has to offer.
Picking a smartphone solely going by the processor is difficult for most people.
Some High-End Processor Smartphones Under Rs. 20,000 Are Listed Below.
Xiaomi Redmi note 9 Pro
Xiaomi has launched the first time, one of the most, High-End Processor Smartphones, 7xx-series Snapdragon processor in a Redmi Note series device at the price of 12,999. It’s a predictable move considering the arms race manufacturers are in, but calls into question Qualcomm’s strategy of launching the 7xx-series as a premium tier to offset the downward migration of the 6xx-series.
You can get the Redmi Note 9 Pro with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage for Rs. 12,999, or with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for Rs. 15,999. The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max will give you 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage at Rs. 14,999, and is also the only option if you want to step up to 8GB.
Other highlights include NavIC support along with standard GPS, dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 5, and all the standard sensors. Along with the 18W charger and USB Type-C cable, you get only a SIM eject tool and plastic case in the box along with this phone – the blue and white variants will ship with a clear case while the black one will get a smoky translucent one
The Poco X2 runs Android 10 OS with MIUI 11 on top. It is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC, paired with Adreno 618 GPU and up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM. It features second-generation Game Turbo mode to boost graphics rendering. The smartphone also has a proprietary LiquidCool technology which provides 300 percent faster heat transfer over the models that don’t include a liquid cooling system according to the company.
As we stated earlier, the Poco X2 should not be seen as the successor to the Poco F1, and as such, it isn’t trying to offer a flagship-grade SoC at mid-range prices. You do get the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G, which is pretty much the next best thing. This is the same chip that powers this phone’s primary competitor, the Realme X2, so we can assume that gaming and general-purpose performance will be solid.
Samsung Galaxy M31
Samsung has retained the Exynos 9611 SoC from the Galaxy M30s. This is an octa-core processor with four performance ARM Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and four efficiency Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.7GHz. For graphics, it has the Mali-G72 GPU. You get 6GB of RAM and a choice between a 64GB storage variant and a 128GB storage variant for Rs. 15,999 or Rs. 16,999 respectively.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 8
Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 is powered by an octa-core Helio G90T processor coupled with an 800MHz ARM Mali G76 MC4 GPU. There are two RAM options: 6GB and 8GB. The device runs company’s own custom UI based on Android 9 Pie. Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 smartphone runs on Android v9.0 (Pie) operating system. The phone is powered by Octa core (2 GHz, Quad core, Kryo 260 + 1.8 GHz, Quad core, Kryo 260) processor. It runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 Chipset.

The star of the Realme X2 is its processor. This is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC, which we’ve seen before in phones such as the Samsung Galaxy A80 and the Oppo Reno 2 (Review). Notably, both of these phones cost more than Rs. 30,000, so to offer the same SoC for under Rs. 20,000 is quite an achievement for Realme. The Snapdragon 730G features eight Kryo 470 cores and an Adreno 618 GPU, both of which are superior to those found in the Snapdragon 710 and 712 SoCs. It’s also built on the smaller 8nm fabrication process, which should make it more power-efficient.
The main attraction here though is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC, which is targeted at gamers. This SoC is said to offer better graphics performance than its counterpart, the Snapdragon 730, as well as better overall performance compared to the Snapdragon 710 and 712. The Realme X2 is also the first phone in this segment to be built around this chip, thanks to aggressive pricing from Realme.
If you’re one of the many people always looking out for a good smartphone priced under Rs. 20,000, you’ll be wondering whether the Realme X2 is the best offering right now. The Realme X2 has been launched in three variants in India — one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage (Rs. 16,999); one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage (Rs. 18,999); and finally 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage (Rs. 19,999). All variants use LPDDR4X RAM and the UFS 2.1 flash storage standard

The display has a 90Hz refresh rate which helps the smartphone deliver a smooth experience. Realme has set the refresh rate to Auto which lets the phone decide between 60Hz and 90Hz, but you can override this. The display has a density of 405ppi and thanks to the hole-punch, the Realme 6 has a screen-to-body ratio of 90.5 percent. There’s Gorilla Glass 3 on the front for protection.
