Over the past few weeks, there have been multiple reports regarding the Redmi K50 gaming edition (e-sports version). Since Lu Weibing, Redmi’s general manager, released a hint on this device, the internet has been buzzing. So far, it appears to be the most popular model in the Redmi K50 series so far. The name of this smartphone shows that it will not be a regular smartphone. It focuses on gaming and there will be trade-offs in configuration and appearance. Today, @DigitalChatStation revealed that the overall appearance of the Redmi K50 gaming edition is basically the same as the previous generation.

Furthermore, this device will have solid magnetic-floating gaming shoulder keys which was the most popular gaming configuration of the previous generation.
As for the back design, the Redmi K50 e-sports version will be different from other gaming phones on the market. It will not bring an overly exaggerated design but will make some game-related elements that are more suitable for daily use.
According to previous reports, the Redmi K50 e-sports version will come with a 6.67-inch flexible screen from Huaxing Optoelectronics. It will not use a screen fingerprint sensor but will use side fingerprints like the previous generation. As for the body size, the measurements of the Redmi K50 e-sports version is about 162 x 76.8 x 8.45 mm and the weight is 210g.
