Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, officially released the Redmi K60 series a couple of days ago. At the launch event, the company announced that the first official sales of this device will take place on December 31st. True to its words, the sales of the Redmi K60 and K60 Pro took place today and the starting price is 2,499 yuan ($362). This device is a flagship killer in terms of price. You can purchase a top-level 2K screen + Snapdragon 8-series flagship chip for less than $400. Redmi has also announced the first sales report of this series. The Redmi K60 series sales exceed 300,000 units within 5 minutes of the first sale.

Redmi K60 series brings some top technologies
Especially this year, Redmi has further popularized high-end technology. After the 2K screen, it also began to release wireless charging. Both models support 30W wireless charging as standard. This is a configuration that was only available on high-end flagships in the past. The mobile phones that should compete with this series can not boast of this feature. At the same time, Redmi launched the first wireless charger. This device costs only 49 yuan ($7) which makes it very attractive to buy.
It is worth mentioning that the 2K screen of the Redmi K60 series is also significantly upgraded compared with the previous generation. It is equipped with the top 2K Chinese screen jointly developed by Redmi and TCL Huaxing Optoelectronics. The display also support 1920Hz high-frequency PWM dimming, taking into account eye protection. The most important thing is that this top screen is the standard configuration of the whole series. Whether it is the Pro version starting at 3299 yuan ($478) or the K60 at 2499 yuan ($362), you will get the same feature.
