Xiaomi Redmi K50 phone with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 incoming soon

Yordan, 20 July 2022

Qualcomm introduced its new Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 flagship chipset and makers are now rushing to refresh their performance-oriented devices. Xiaomi already unveiled the 12S series, and it's also about to give us a Redmi phone with the new top chip.

The brand chief Lu Weibing, also known as William Lu, revealed on Weibo there is a new Redmi K50 flagship in the works and it will come “soon” with the Qualcomm platform.

Lu reposted an image that Xiaomi shared before, confirming 33% better energy efficiency of the Plus’ CPU and 30% of the GPU. We expected the phone to be called Redmi K50 Ultra but since the series is still bound to the domestic market, we have heard practically nothing about a follow-up.

Some reports suggest the name will be Redmi K50S, akin to the Xiaomi 12S series. However in the past S has denoted a special member of the Redmi lineups rather than an update.

Looks fantastic

Even the ongoing 11T Pro is still more than that in my region.

Don't know why you think the camera design is bad, it looks decent enough to me, not as bad as Poco X3 Pro or some other Poco/redmi note phones
