Xiaomi Redmi K50 Pro+ to feature a periscope zoom and 108MP cameras
Xiaomi Redmi K50 lineup is still wrapped around mystery and there's little to no information about it. However, according to a renowned Weibo tipster, we have some of the key specs of the top-tier member of the family, the K50 Pro+.
Yes. it appears that Xiaomi is readying a Pro+ variant of the K50 once again and its core specs are seemingly revealed. We can expect the powerful and still unannounced Snapdragon 898 chipset powering up the handset while a 5,000 mAh battery would keep the lights on. Speaking of lights, the display is rumored to be curved with a centered punch-hole for the selfie camera and under-display fingerprint reader. Or at least that's what we were able to gather from the broken Google translation of the Weibo post.
On the camera front, we should see a 108MP main camera coupled with a periscope telephoto shooter. If those specs are accurate, the Pro+ would be a full-fledged flagship and not just a flagship killer.
The Snapdragon 898 part leads us to believe the K50 Pro+ won't be coming around for this year's holiday season, though. Since Qualcomm usually announces its flagship SoCs towards the end of each year and the first devices running the company's latest and greatest come out at the beginning of the next one. So it's easy to assume that the Redmi K50 Pro+ will be out sometime at the beginning of 2022.

I agree I use the tele for macros but people want close distance focus so basically UW with AF ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
