In terms of design, the future Redmi K50 seems to be inspired by the Redmi Note 11 with a photo module separated into two parts. Only, if the Redmi Note 11 takes advantage of the lower part of the photographic module to integrate three cameras, and one on top, Xiaomi seems to have chosen a different path for its Redmi K50 with a plate that accommodates three cameras and the bottom plate. integrating only the flash.
As for the technical characteristics, the Redmi K50 should be equipped with a 6.6-inch borderless curved screen, but with a punch at the top, in its center, to integrate the selfie camera. Bestopedia and OnLeaks also note the presence of a USB-C socket, speaker and microphone on the bottom edge, but no headphone jack. The volume bat seems to be placed on the right, and the standby key also acts as a fingerprint reader.
A smartphone that should succeed the Poco F3
As for the features, OnLeaks says that the smartphone could be equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, the most powerful processor available for Android smartphones. It would also come with 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage. For the photo, therefore, we expect a triple photo module with a 64-megapixel main sensor, while autonomy would be provided by a 5000 mAh battery compatible with 120 W fast charging.
As a reminder, the predecessor of the Redmi K50, the Redmi K40, was launched in China just a year ago. The smartphone was then launched in Europe in March 2021 as the Xiaomi Poco F3. Logically, the Redmi K50 could use the same model and be offered in France in a few months under Xiaomi’s Poco range.
