Redmi’s general manager, Lu Weibing announced some details of the upcoming Redmi K50 series. According to him, this device uses the code-name “Dream Phone” and it will be official next month. His latest Weibo post reveals information on the battery, charging, and heat dissipation of the Redmi K50 series. This new smartphone will come with dual VCs liquid colling, that is, two VC heat plates. These plates will deliver the ultimate heat dissipation capacity and may offer the industry’s coolest Snapdragon 8 Gen1 model.
In addition, this new smartphone will also come with a 4700 mAh battery that supports 120W fast charging. According to Lu Weibing, this charging capacity will deliver a full charge in only 17 minutes.
Of course, the Redmi K50 series will not have just the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 version. Redmi officials have since confirmed that the Redmi K50 series will also use the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 processors. According to previous reports, the Redmi K50 currently has a complete range of processors, including Snapdragon 8 Gen1, Dimensity 7000, and Dimensity 9000 models. This series will have three models and each model will come with a different chip and configuration. The Redmi K50 with MediaTek’s sub-flagship, Dimensity 8000 chip has a performance that exceeds the Snapdragon 870.
Redmi K50 Pro will come with the powerful but relatively low-priced Dimensity 9000. This chip uses TSMC’s 4nm process and has a performance output that is not weaker than that of Snapdragon 8 Gen1. Redmi K50 Pro+, as the top-of-the-line flagship, may be equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen1, which has the most comprehensive performance.
Redmi K50 series will not be entirely cheap
It is important to note that the Redmi K50 series may not entirely be a cheap series. The regular models may be attractive in terms of price but the Pro+ model will not be cheap.
According to Lu Weibing, the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 “puts everyone under pressure”. He advises that users should buy the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 hard-core flagship in 2022. Furthermore, he recommends that users pay attention to the following points when looking at the Redmi K50 series
- The heat dissipation stack is fierce: Don’t just look at the total area of heat dissipation. The key is to look at the VC area and VC layout.
- Performance temperature control strategy: also pay attention to the frame rate and temperature
- Power consumption will also affect charging. This not only depends on the off-screen charging speed but also depends on the charging speed while playing. The battery is 4700 mAh and the charging speed is 120W.
