Recently, the vice-president of Xiaomi and the head of Redmi Lu Weibing announced the start of a promotional campaign to promote the Redmi K50 series. And yesterday, the company completely declassified a number of features that will be inherent in one of the smartphones of the new line. In particular, it was announced that the device will be based on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 platform.
Later, Lu Weibing published a post in which he stated that the presence of a top-end processor from Qualcomm causes a sense of alarm among users. He did not directly say that such anxiety is due to the fear; that a smartphone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 will overheat and throttle hard. Instead, he decided to focus on what would help avoid this – the cooling system.
The top manager said that users should pay attention; not only to the presence of a cooling system inside the smartphone; but also to the total area of heat dissipation. Naturally, the more the better. It is also worth considering the construction of temperature monitoring in order to be sure that the frame rate will not sag when the temperature rises. And the last important point is power consumption and charging speed.
Recall that yesterday with its teaser, the company announced that it will make Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 cool in Redmi K50. Among the specs of the device is fast wired charging with a power of 120 W; which is capable of “refueling” a 4700 mAh battery in just 17 minutes.
