The Redmi K50 series will be official next month and from reports, the starting price will be decent. According to reports, the Redmi K50 will come with the Snapdragon 870 SoC. Recall that the previous generation Redmi K40 also uses this processor. The starting price of the Redmi K40 6GB + 128GB version is 1999 yuan ($315). Considering that the Redmi K50 also uses the same processor, the company may not increase the price of this device.
Interestingly, since the inception of the Redmi K series, its starting price has been consistent. The Redmi K20, K30 5G, and K40 all come with a 1999 yuan starting price. This is another reason why there are speculations that the Redmi K50 will also start at 1999 yuan ($315).
Since the birth of the Redmi K series, the flagship prices of the Redmi K20, Redmi K30 5G, Redmi K40, and other generations of K series flagships all start at 1999 yuan ($315), so it is not ruled out that the Snapdragon 870 version of the K50 is priced at 1999 yuan ($315).
In addition, the standard version of the Redmi K50 will continue the side fingerprint design of the K40. At the same time, it will adopt a center punch-hole screen solution. This smartphone will also come with an FHD+ OLED screen that supports a 120Hz refresh rate.
Redmi K50 series to use multiple processors
The Redmi K50 gaming edition (or e-sports version) will also be official next month. The Redmi K50 gaming edition will use a center punch-hole straight screen. The right fuselage will retain the physical shoulder button, which can bring a stronger game control experience. Furthermore, this smartphone will come with a 6.67-inch display. In addition to the core performance, the charging speed of the Redmi K50 gaming edition is also very good this time. Although it has a built-in 4700 mAh large-capacity battery, it will come with a 120W Immortal Second Charge Pro. This charging capacity will deliver a full 100% charge in 17 minutes. This is the fastest charging speed in the history of Redmi.
We will also have the Redmi K50 Pro which will come with the Dimensity 9000 processor. This chip also uses a 4nm manufacturing process but from TSMC. The performance output of this chip is no weaker than that of the Snapdragon 8 Gen1. According to previous news, the K50 series will use a 2K resolution high refresh screen for the first time.
It is worth mentioning that in addition to these models, there are also reports of the Redmi K50 Pro+. However, there is really no report on the specification of this smartphone.
