The Redmi K50 series is set to debut next month. A new leak has now revealed what chipsets will power the different phones in the lineup, and things are looking up, with the least powerful chipset apparently being the capable Snapdragon 870.

After launching the Xiaomi 12 series in China last month, the Redmi K50 series stands as the next item on Xiaomi's checklist for its home market. The company is set to debut the Redmi K50 lineup next month, and word on the grapevine has now confirmed some more details about the phones.

As revealed by Digital Chat Station, the Redmi K50 series will launch with four phones and four distinct chipsets. All four phones will be powered by capable chipsets, with the cheapest model being the vanilla Redmi K50 which will sport a Snapdragon 870.

The Redmi K50 Gaming looks to be the first device that will launch, perhaps alongside the regular Redmi K50. The gaming-centric phone will be powered by Qualcomm's latest and greatest, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. The Redmi K50 Gaming will offer superb heat dissipation, premium haptics, and shoulder triggers, but at the expense of truly premium cameras.

Lastly, two other Redmi K50 models are expected to be powered by both the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 and Dimensity 8000. The two phones may be the Redmi K50 Pro and Redmi K50 Pro+. Those chipsets aren't shipping quite yet, though, so both phones are unlikely to launch till later in the year.

Buy the Poco F3 on Amazon.
