At the new product launch event, apart from the vanilla version, we also met the Redmi K50 Pro. Like Xiaomi, Redmi wants to leave its name in the premium smartphone segment. And the newly released phone has all chances for this.
The Redmi K50 series has 4 color variants, namely ink feather, serene glow, silver trace, and magic mirror. The thickness of the body is 8.48mm.
The Redmi K50 Pro sports the Dimensity 9000 flagship processor. It’s not the pioneer, as the OPPO Find X5 Pro hit the market earlier. Anyway, there are a few features that make the phone stand out. For instance, it comes with a 3950mm² super large VC liquid cooling + 7-layer graphite system. So when playing heavy games for a long time, they will run at a stable high frame rate. Also, at room temperature of 25 ℃, the fuselage will reach only 46 ℃.
The Dimensity 9000 adopts TSMC’s 4nm process. It also uses a new generation of Armv9 architecture + X2 super core. The GPU and APU are upgraded and it adopts up to 5 self-developed technologies. Due to them, in AnTuTu, scores over 1.04 million points.
The Redmi K50 Pro sports the same “Surge P1” charging chip as the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro. Thus, it supports 120W charging and comes with a 5000mAh battery. The latter will be fully charged in 19 minutes.
In addition, Redmi K50 Pro uses LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512GB UFS3.1 native storage. The rest of the noteworthy features include Bluetooth 5.3, WiFi 6 160MHz, precise navigation, Dolby stereo dual speakers, X-axis linear motor, multi-function NFC3.0, etc.
However, we should also mention that there is no in-screen fingerprint recognition module. So the Redmi K50 Pro still uses the side fingerprint recognition method. But its recognition rate and speed are better than screen fingerprint modules. At the same time, the cost is lower.
