The Redmi K40 series launched back in February last year. Many people assumed that the Redmi K50 series will be coming in February this year, and those assumptions were correct. The Redmi K50 series will be coming next month with 120W charging, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and other goodies.
The Redmi K50 series is coming next month with 120W charging & more
This information has been confirmed by the company, actually. Xiaomi shared a teaser on Weibo, a Chinese social media network. Just to be clear, the Redmi K50 and K50 Pro will launch in China first, but chances are they’ll make it to global markets as well.
Last year, Xiaomi launched the Redmi K40, K40 Pro, and K40 Pro+. It remains to be seen if the company will use the exact same naming structure this time around, or will there be any changes. We’ll likely see two or three devices being launched, though.
Redmi confirmed that 120W charging will be included in the ‘Pro’ model. We’re talking about wired charging here, of course, though it’s possible that fast wireless charging will also be included. Its predecessor offered 33W wired charging only, though.
Its 4,700mAh battery will be fully rechargeable in only 17 minutes
A 4,700mAh battery was also confirmed for the ‘Pro’ model, and Xiaomi said that it will be fully rechargeable in only 17 minutes thanks to 120W charging. Do note that this is the same 120W charging as included in the Redmi Note 11 Pro+.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 will also be a part of the ‘Pro’ variant. The vanilla Redmi K50 will likely have a slightly less powerful processor, though we don’t know which one exactly. It remains to be seen.
Another detail that Xiaomi confirmed is that the Redmi K50 Pro will have a dual vapor chamber. That’s why the company used a frozen background for the provided poster. Xiaomi says that the Redmi K50 Pro will be the “coldest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 phone”.
You can expect other high-end specs to be included in the Redmi K50 series, especially the ‘Pro’ variant. Xiaomi didn’t announce when exactly will the Redmi K50 series launch, but it’s coming at some point in February.
