Today, a Weibo blogger said that a 2K screen smartphone under the Redmi brand is on the way. Also, our protagonist will be large in size and support a high refresh rate.
At present, Xiaomi has used 2K screens on ultra-high-end flagships, such as the Mi 12 Pro, Mi 11 Pro, Mi 11 Ultra, and other models. It increases the price a lot. So not all models can sport it.
Looking back at the Redmi models, the high-end K-series flagships currently use 1080P displays. Among them, we can mention the Redmi K40 Pro, Redmi K40 Pro+, Redmi K30 Pro, etc.
So when combining all this news, we can say that the upcoming Redmi smartphone with a 2K screen will be a premium handset. Thus, there is every reason to think it will belong to the Redmi K50 series.
But no need to think that this handset will be one of the earlier-leaked models. We mean this news doesn’t refer to any of the Redmi K50, K50 Pro, or even the K50 e-sports variant. All these models will come with a FullHD+ resolution.
By the way, the first smartphones from the Redmi K50 lineup will hit the market in a few days, in February.
According to the previous leaks, the selfie shooter of the Redmi K50 Pro has an opening in the upper middle area of the front panel. Like the Redmi K40, it uses an ultra-small diameter opening. The rear camera will use a new triangular layout and a large-size dual-color temperature flash.
As for sensors, the mobile phone is going to use a 64MP Sony IMX686 sensor. Also, there should be a 13MP OV13B10 ultra-wide-angle camera and a 2MP GC02M1 or an 8MP OV08A10 macro camera.
In other aspects, the phone is expected to sport an FHD+ AMOLED straight screen with a refresh rate of up to 120Hz and a size of 6.67 inches. There will be no under-screen camera as many have been thinking. Instead, the power button is still used as a fingerprint recognition device.
More interestingly, the Redmi K50 series models will differ by chips inside. For instance, the Redmi K50 will be equipped with MediaTek’s sub-flagship Dimensity 8000 chip; the Redmi K50 Pro will feature the powerful but relatively low-priced Dimensity 9000; the Redmi K50 Pro+ and the e-sports edition will be equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1;
