We already know that the Redmi K50 e-sports version will sport the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, while the K50 standard version will come with the Snapdragon 870 like the Redmi K40. Today, a Weibo blogger said that there will be new opportunities for the K50 using the MediaTek Dimensity 8000 and 9000 platforms.
The whistleblower said that we hadn’t seen Redmi K50 series models powered by the Snapdragon 8 but the e-sports version. However, the overall shipment of the new Dimensity series SoCs is late. This simply means the phones can’t be announced at the moment. And we have no idea when Redmi will be able to introduce them.
As for the concrete chips, the MediaTek Dimensity 8000 mobile platform is expected to be built with TSMC’s 5nm process technology. It will also come with four A78 large cores at 2.75GHz and four A55 small cores at 2.0GHz, and it integrates the Mali-G510 MC6 GPU.
Anyway, when the Redmi K50 is out, the version powered by the Dimensity 8000 will also come with a 6.6-inch full-screen, a 50MP OIS main camera, and a 50MP ultra-wide-angle lens.
By the way, besides the Redmi K50, the VIVO X80 is also expected to be equipped with the Dimensity 8000 processor. This model will have a front 44MP camera, and the price is expected to be above 3,000 yuan ($473).
Redmi K50 e-sports features
The Redmi K50 e-sports version will have a punch-hole screen design. The rear panel will differ from other gaming phones on the market. It will not bring an overly exaggerated design but will make some game-related elements on the basis of conventional mobile phones. This will make it more suitable for daily use. Anyway, the screen size will be 6.67 inches. This flexible screen will be supplied by Huaxing Optoelectronics. It will not use screen fingerprint recognition but will use side fingerprints like the previous generation. The chin will be further narrowed.
Generally talking, various gaming smartphone manufacturers have always stood in front of a dilemma. They didn’t know whether mobile devices in this field should differ by their appearance. In effect, they design and launch models that look like ordinary handsets. Our readers just should know that when a smartphone carries many gaming elements, not many customers tend to buy it.
As for the body size, the measurements of the Redmi K50 e-sports version are about 162*76.8*8.45mm and the weight is 210g.
