Xiaomi Will Show Off The Redmi K50 Gaming
But that happened faster than expected. Xiaomi just announced that the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition will be shown off for the first time on February 16. With this news, we’ll get answers to some of the questions we had this morning.
The First K50 Will Be The Redmi K50 Gaming Edition
The design of the Redmi K50 Series was the focus of our first post this morning, which was confirmed by protective cases. But we also asked ourselves a few things that haven’t been answered yet. Even though we know from multiple certifications that the “affordable Xiaomi 12 series” has a total of four models, it was still unclear, especially in the premium area, whether it would be the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition, the Redmi K50 Pro+, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, or the MediaTek Dimensity 9000. MediaTek’s 9000s was far ahead of the other top processors when they were last compared. But this likely won’t happen right away on the first smartphone.
India is likely to charge Rs. 35,390 for the Xiaomi Redmi K50 Ultra. The Xiaomi Redmi K50 Ultra is likely to come out on December 7, 2022. This is the Xiaomi Redmi K50 Ultra base model with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. It is likely to come in Black, Blue, and Silver.
The Redmi Weibo channel has been busy in the past few hours. Several posters talk about technical details, like how fast the LPDDR5 RAM is and how the UFS 3.1 programme memory is on the inside. But what we will see from the K50 series first is much more important. Because everything this morning pointed to it only being a smartphone in advance, And there it is: The Redmi K50 Gaming Edition, which we’d like to show you next Wednesday, February 16 at 7 p.m., is now being advertised with a teaser (Asia Time).
Prices for older Redmi K50 models have been leaked in the past. The base price for the main model, the Redmi K50, will be 1,999 yuan. The base price for the Redmi K50 Pro will be 2,699 yuan, and the base price for the Redmi K50 Pro+ is expected to be 3,299 yuan. Lastly, the starting price for the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition will be 3,499 yuan. But since the brand is known for being high-quality and affordable, it is likely that its price will be competitive and its performance will be better than other phones with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor.
Probably Won’t Come To Germany
There are also rumours that a Poco version of the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition will be released in Germany, just like the one that came before it. The Poco F3 GT should have become the Poco F4 GT at that time. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is confirmed not only by the earlier release date of the Gaming Edition (the Dimensity 9000 is being held back), but also by the teaser. It’s also nice to see that the gaming smartphone has a nice design and shoulder buttons that are made of hardware. Also like the other K50 models, the main camera has three lenses, but they are lined up vertically instead of in a pyramid. I could be wrong, but it looks like there are RGB LEDs on either side of the three optics.
