As the Xiaomi executive revealed, the Redmi K50 e-sports version will use a 64-megapixel IMX686 camera sensor on the back. Interestingly, this is the same well-deserved CMOS found on the old but good K30 launched two years ago. The resolution of the photos is as high as 9248 x 6944, and the details are even more exquisite. Obviously, the company polished the sensor and it has become even better. This is basically a low-cost solution, which has reduced the pixel size from 0.8um to 0.7um.

On the front, our protagonist will use the Sony IMX596 sensor, which is the first appearance of this lens. It has a 20MP resolution and supports powerful AI functions. The company also posted a photo of a beautiful lady, emphasizing the details captured by the phone.

Apart from this, the Redmi K50 e-sports version will have a number of other features that will make this handset outstanding. First, we should point out the display. Initially, the company raised the question of what the Mi fans think of an LCD screen. So we were thinking the handset will use an LCD display. But later, we learned that the Redmi K50 e-sports version will use an OLED flexible straight screen. The latter has obtained international authoritative image quality certification: DisplayMate A+ and achieved 15 image quality records at one time!

Another amazing feature it comes with is “primary color screen” professional color calibration technology. Through film-by-chip adjustment, it can achieve accurate color. Its JNCD and ΔE are identical to a professional monitor. Of course, this display will be protected by Victus Gorilla® Glass. It is the strongest Gorilla® glass ever made by Corning. It is 1.5 times more resistant to drop, 2 times more resistant to scratches through a 2-meter drop test, and 4 times higher than ordinary glass.


The Redmi K50 e-sports version has built a hard core network with e-sports standards. It comes with an exclusive e-sports antenna greatly reducing game delay. Plus, there is a four-network synergy, which greatly reduces delay as well. The latter includes two-way WiFi + two-way 5G as well as real-time optimization. So the network is like driving on a highway and automatically selects the lane with the best road conditions.

We know that when holding a phone horizontally, it blocks the signal. The Redmi K50 gaming version is specially optimized, and a set of exclusive gaming antennas are arranged on the side of the fuselage, leaving a large clearance area for the horizontal grip. The hardware-level ensures stable signal reception and transmission. Game latency is drastically reduced by 30%.

What Else?

Xiaomi will release the Redmi K50 e-sports version on February 16. The main selling point of the Redmi K50 e-sports version will be the Snapdragon 8, dual VC, 120W fast charge, CyberEngine ultra-wideband motor, etc.
