The well-known Chinese insider Digital Chat Station confirmed on his Weibo page that the Redmi K50 series is in development and will launch before the Chinese New Year. The next year according to the Chinese calendar will come on February 1, 2022, and the new Qualcomm platform will be presented at the end of the year, that is, the release of the Redmi K50 can be expected around January 2022.
Earlier, Lu Weibing, general manager of the Redmi brand, on the same social network confirmed the development of the Redmi K50, but did not talk about how the new series will differ from the Redmi K40. If Xiaomi Mi 12 becomes the first smartphone based on a single-chip system Snapdragon 895, then Redmi K50 Pro should receive the title of the cheapest flagship based on this platform and come out shortly after Xiaomi Mi 12.
The base model Redmi K50 is rumored to have a 48MP camera, while the Redmi K50 Pro will get a 108MP camera. At the same time, Redmi K50 will receive the Snapdragon 888 Plus platform to make smartphones even more different.
Following the trend, Redmi K50 smartphones should receive very high-quality displays and support for fast wired and wireless charging.
Earlier, Digital Chat Station was the first to accurately report the specifications and release dates of the Redmi K30, K40, Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 11.
