Redmi has finally dropped the K50 series after introducing the K50 Gaming last month. The series brings two devices, the Redmi K50 and K50 Pro, with the latest MediaTek chips. Now, let's look at what else the series has to offer!

The vanilla variant gets powered by the Dimensity 8100 SoC, while the Pro packs the Dimensity 9000. Both also sport a 6.67-inch AMOLED QHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, the K50 has a 5,500mAh battery, and the Pro comes with a 5,000mAh package. However, the K50 Pro supports a higher fast charging speed at 120W, with Xiaomi claiming that it charges fully in just 19 minutes. Meanwhile, the K50 is not bad itself alongside a 67W charging support.

The camera setup on the Pro variant brings a higher-resolution 108MP primary camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), an 8MP ultrawide lens and a 2MP macro shooter. On the other hand, the standard K50 arrives with a 48MP OIS shooter, with the other two sensors being the same. They also have a 20MP shooter on the front for selfies and video calls. Other features include a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, a USB-C port, and MIUI 13.

The Redmi K50 series will be available in China with the K50's retail price starting from 2,399 Yuan (~RM1,585) for the 8/128GB model and K50 Pro starting from 2,999 Yuan (~RM1,981) for the same configuration. Currently, there's still no information about the global launch. Nevertheless, the source says it's likely to appear as rebranded POCO smartphones in other regions.
