According to rumors, the presentation of the Redmi K50 series will take place in February. We expect that four smartphones will launch within its framework, differing from each other, primarily in hardware platforms. There is no doubt that the gaming Redmi K50 Gaming Edition will receive Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and it should be the only one in the family with this platform.
Well-known insider Digital Chat Station said that the other three smartphones will be built on the basis of Snapdragon 870, Dimensity 8000 and Dimensity 9000. There is no information about which model this or that chip will get. We can only assume that an SoC from Qualcomm will form the basis of the base model of the series, but the chips from MediaTek will go to Redmi K50 Pro and Redmi K50 Pro +.
Also, at the moment, there is other information about the characteristics of Redmi K50 Gaming Edition. It will be a device with dimensions of 162×76.8×8.45 mm and a weight of 210 grams, on the front panel of which a 6.67-inch 2K screen is available. It will receive a powerful cooling system, a 4700 mAh battery with fast 120-watt charging, a fingerprint scanner at the end, MIUI 13 and a triple rear camera of 64 MP + 13 MP + 2 MP.
Redmi K50 promises the best vibration among Android smartphones
Recently, 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. In addition, 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.
So, with an eye to the characteristics of the linear vibration motor; we assume 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.
