Today, on its official Weibo page, Redmi announced that the Redmi K50 series will be the first in the world to offer the CyberEngine broadband linear vibration motor, codenamed 1016. This is the largest vibration motor among Android devices, with a wide frequency and amplitude of oscillation. In terms of tactile sensations and performance, it surpasses all other solutions on the market, and was created by specialists from AAC Technology.
In order to achieve a tangible and multi-level vibration feedback, the volume of the linear vibration motor was 560 mm³, and the frequency range of 50 Hz – 500 Hz and offered the most comfortable resonant frequency for a person of 130 Hz, which is comparable to the Taptic Engine in the iPhone.
Also, the company claims that the vibration level is three times that of conventional linear motors found in smartphones. CyberEngine features a low power consumption of 0.12W; and a maximum vibration level of up to 1.1 Grms, equivalent to 1.88 Grms for traditional X-axis linear motors.
With an eye to the characteristics of the linear vibration motor; it is assumed that it will definitely find its use in Redmi K50 Gaming Edition. This is a gaming smartphone that will offer a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, a 4700 mAh battery with 120-watt fast charging, a 6.67-inch display, an in-display fingerprint scanner and a powerful cooling system.
Redmi Note 12 series launch is closer than expected
Last October Xiaomi surprised its fans in China with the Redmi Note 11 series. It has yet to enter the global market, but the manufacturer is already preparing successors. Xiaomiui has found information on certification of 12 devices, some of which may well come out within the Redmi Note 12 line.
As a reminder, the K16 model number belongs to the Redmi Note 11 Pro (67W); and the K16U is the Redmi Note 11 Pro + (120W). L16 could very well be owned by Redmi Note 12 Pro, while L16U could stand for Redmi Note 12 Pro +. The K19 was assigned to the Redmi Note 10 5G, the K19P went to the Poco M3 Pro 5G. Redmi Note 12 can be hidden behind the L19 model number, and the L19P – POCO M5 Pro 5G. The L19N could be the NFC-enabled version of the Redmi Note 12.
At the moment there is no information about the characteristics of the devices. At the same time, the source suggested that they should debut in the second quarter of this year. It’s hard to believe in such an early debut of the Redmi Note 12 line on the global market. It is much more likely that this series can enter the Chinese market; but it will get to the global market later. Also, do not forget that the imminent release of the Redmi Note 12 family is just an assumption; and any smartphones that are not part of the Redmi Note family may be hiding behind the models that have passed certification.
