Xiaomi is gearing up for the launch of the Redmi K50 series in China. The company will announce its upcoming premium smartphone series in China in February 2022. Among the list of devices include Redmi K50, K50 Pro, Pro+, and K50 Pro Gaming Edition. 

Redmi is yet to confirm the exact launch date of its upcoming premium phones.

The Xiaomi executive further stated the upcoming Redmi flagship with Dimensity 9000 SoC will launch later this year.

Redmi K50 series launch imminent

MediaTek Dimensity 9000-powered phones were previously expected to launch in February. The K50 series was expected to be among the first to ship with the MediaTek flagship chipset. However, it looks like either company has hit a roadblock, resulting in the delay of the launch. The Redmi K50 Pro is rumoured to feature Dimensity 9000 SoC, whereas the K50 Gaming could come with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset.

On the contrary, some reports also state that the Gaming Edition variant could feature the Dimensity 9000 chip, whereas the vanilla K50 will come with a Dimensity 8000 SoC. Xiaomi has not yet confirmed the details yet. Therefore, it is best to wait for more details to surface online and not get confused by the evolving leaks. 

Regardless, the K50 series is expected to feature a 6.67-inch AMOLED display. All four devices could come with 120Hz refresh rate support. The Gaming Edition is confirmed to pack a 4700 mAh battery and support 120W fast charging out of the box. Xiaomi’s upcoming Redmi flagships will run Android 12-based MIUI 13 in China. 

The phones are also expected to feature a triple-camera setup on the back. The K50 Pro could get a 50MP Samsung GN5 sensor or a 108MP main camera. The Gaming Edition, on the other hand, is rumored to come with a 48MP or 64MP main camera. The rear camera setup will also feature a 13MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP/ 5MP macro shooter. It will come with a 16MP front camera. This device is also expected to launch as the Poco F4 GT in select markets outside China.
