There are too many rumors and leaks concerning the upcoming Redmi phones. And we don’t mean the Redmi K50 series only. Of course, we understand that it’s on everyone’s lips. But Redmi’s Note lineup is very popular as well. Anyway, today, Redmi released a poster, saying that the first handset from the Redmi K50 will hit the market in the Year of Tiger. As you know, the Chinese New Year begins on February 1. Thus, with this poster, the manufacturer wants to say that it’s scheduled to hit the market soon.
Also, the poster shows a part of the phone. There is a design element at the bottom of the phone that has a ring shape. But at the moment, we have no idea what it could be. If it is a rear camera module, the previous leaks showed quite a different design. Although we remembered a render that was displaying an OREO camera design. So maybe this is the case.
Anyway, the phone is confirmed to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile platform. Plus, our protagonist will come with dual VC vapor chambers, will support 120W fast charging, and sport a built-in broadband linear motor.
As the brand executive said, the Redmi K50 will be a “hardcore flagship of the year” with hardcore performance and extreme heat dissipation.
According to previous news, the first Redmi K50 model, codenamed “DreamPhone”, is scheduled to be released in February. Moreover, when this info was spotted, we also learned that it will feature a built-in 4700mAh battery, which will support 120W fast charging. Thus, the mentioned capacity will get fully charged in 17 minutes.
Well, what we introduced above are the semi-confirmed features of the handset. But we know that there will be different models in the series powered by different chips. Generally, the Redmi K50 universe will have a complete range of processors, including Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, Dimensity 7000, and Dimensity 9000.
But we think the model in the poster is the vanilla version of the Redmi K50 series. If so, it will be powered by MediaTek’s sub-flagship Dimensity 8000 chip. As for performance, it’s said to exceed that of the current hottest Snapdragon 870 chip.
Recently, the alleged case of the phone was shown on an e-commerce website. As we can see in the picture, the opening on the back of the phone case seems to use an Oreo lens, and the flash is located at the center of the camera.
We shouldn’t rule out the possibility of such a design, because the previous Redmi K30 Pro was using the Oreo lens design.
