Redmi K50 series with a Snapdragon 895 chip to launch this year?


As one of the most popular products of the Redmi brand, the Redmi K series has always been favoured by users with its extremely high-cost performance and super high configuration. This year’s K40 improves many previous shortcomings and performs particularly well. It provides excellent choices in terms of performance, screen, and appearance. The Redmi K40 is so popular that even after a few months of release, the demand is still high. In view of the excellent performance of the K40 series, many people are already looking forward to the debut of the Redmi K50 series.

Redmi K50 series

According to a recent report from a popular Weibo leakster, @DCS, the Redmi K50 series already has a network access model. Furthermore, he speculates that the Redmi K50 series will likely officially arrive before the Spring Festival.

According to previous news, the Redmi K50 series has actually begun internal planning. There are claims that the two iterative products of the series maintain a similar design style. The front side of both models adopts a 120Hz single punch-hole screen solution. Of course, this will make this smartphone miss the experience of true full screen. However, Redmi flagships cant have it all because of their pricing.

Redmi K50 speculations so far

Nevertheless, the company will improve on the camera department of this new flagship series. According to reports, the high model will come with a 108MP main camera. However, the other model will have a 48MP main shooter.

Regarding the processor, the Redmi K40 Pro comes with the Snapdragon 888 SoC. If we follow this trend, the Redmi K50 Pro should also use the Snapdragon 895 SoC. Or perhaps, it can come with the Snapdragon 888 Plus processor. This new series has many options if we consider that the Snapdragon 870 can also do a great job. The chip will be better controlled in terms of power consumption and heat generation.

However, if the Redmi K50 series will use the Snapdragon 895 SoC, then it will probably not launch this year. Qualcomm will release its next-generation flagship SoC in December at the earliest. Xiaomi is expected to debut this chip just like last year with a device from the Mi digital series. Thus, if the Redmi K50 series must arrive this year, it will most likely not use the Snapdragon 895 SoC. If it must use this processor, the Redmi will have to unveil this series in the first quarter of next year.
