The launch of Redmi’s future low-cost smartphones is just around the corner. The Xiaomi 12 series, which is planned to launch by the end of this month, is expected to be followed by the K50 lineup.
The Redmi K50 family is scheduled to arrive in Q1 2022, exactly around the time the Redmi Note 11 series is expected to go worldwide, according to tipster Digital Chat Station. According to the source, the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition would have a flat display with a centred punch-hole. Its right edge, similar to the Black Shark phones, will incorporate mechanical shoulder buttons for gaming.
In China, it will be known as the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition, while in the rest of the world, it will most likely be known as the Poco. The Gaming Edition phone would sport a 120Hz or 144Hz OLED panel with a Dimensity 9000 chip and an in-display fingerprint sensor, according to prior sources.
On the back, there will be a 64MP primary sensor (Sony IMX686), as well as a 13MP ultrawide, 8MP telemacro, and a 2MP depth sensor. A phone with a 108MP primary sensor will be available as a separate model. A K50 Gaming Edition Pro model will also be available, but its specifications are unknown.
