Earlier this month, we received a tip that some of the Redmi K50 series will be powered by a Qualcomm SoC. Today we heard that some of the models will also get a MediaTek SoC.
According to reports, there will be four models in the K50 series – the Redmi K50, K50 Game Edition, K50 Pro, and K50 Pro+. New reports suggest that the Redmi K50 models will come with the Dimensity 7000 and Dimensity 9000 chipsets. MediaTek recently announced the Dimensity 9000. The Dimensity 7000 is in the testing phase.
Moreover, the tipster claimed that the series will also come with the latest MIUI 13. It is expected that Matisse and Rubens will be branded as Redmi K50 series gaming smartphones. The former will come with Dimensity 9000, while the latter will come with Dimensity 7000. In some markets, the duo will come under the name POCO.
The two upper-end models (the Redmi K50 Pro and Redmi K50 Pro+) will feature high-end E5 AMOLED displays with a high refresh rate and will support 100W fast charging.
Some other reports suggest that there will be no Redmi K50 SE. The series might use the 64MP ISOCELL GW3 and IMX686 as the main camera sensors along with the macro ultra-wide-angle cameras. Some models will also offer optical fingerprint readers and E5 LTPO displays, while some will come with a QHD+ display.
This second source predicted that there would be three models featuring the Snapdragon 888, Dimensity 7000, and Dimensity 9000. Two of the models may support 67W fast charging, while the third one would support 120W fast charging.
Since the company hasn’t said a word about the specs, on the K50 series, we aren’t 100% sure of what this lineup would bring. However, we hope to see this series in Q1 of 2022, which means soon we’ll start getting some clear and valid details about the Redmi K50 series.
