Tomorrow Xiaomi will arrange its next presentation, where it will present the Redmi K50 line. Until today, everything indicated that we were waiting for the premiere of Redmi K50, Redmi K50 Pro and Redmi K50 Pro+. But the well-known insider Digital Chat Station made a change in the composition of the presentation participants.
According to him, Redmi K50, Redmi K50 Pro and Redmi K40S will be presented tomorrow. It is not difficult to guess that the last of the named debutants will become a slightly upgraded version of the Redmi K40. And this is the same smartphone, the premiere of which was previously scheduled for the fall of 2021.
Redmi K40S will not receive any major upgrade. It is very likely that all changes will come down to the fact that the main camera will arrive with an optical stub. At the same time, Sony IMX582 at 48 megapixels will act as the main sensor, and the company has been using this sensor for the third generation of Redmi K series devices, starting with Redmi K20. It will be a device with a Snapdragon 870, a 6.67-inch Samsung E4 AMOLED screen, 6/8 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB of memory, a 4500 mAh battery with 67 W fast charging.
Redmi K40S may launch with the Redmi K50 and K50 Pro
Redmi K50 will offer a Dimensity 8100 chipset, a 6.7-inch QuadHD + AMOLED display, a 5500 mAh battery with 67-watt fast charging, 8/12 GB of RAM, a flash drive with a capacity of 128/256 GB and a triple camera with a main sensor on 108MP
The Redmi K50 Pro will have a Dimensity 9000 processor, a 5000 mAh battery with 120-watt charging, a 120-Hz QuadHD + AMOLED panel, 8/12 GB of RAM and 128/256/512 GB of memory and a main camera with three modules, where the main is a 108 megapixels sensor with OIS.
