Xiaomi Redmi K50 Pro design emerges with a different look to the new Redmi K50 Gaming Edition
OnLeaks has revealed renders of the Redmi K50 Pro, a device that he claims measures 163.2 x 76.2 x 8.7 mm, or 11.4 mm if you include its camera housing. In comparison, the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition measures 162.5 x 76.7 x 8.5 mm. Hence, the Redmi K50 Pro will not utilise its sibling's chassis, as with the Redmi K40 Pro and the Redmi K40 Pro+, for example.
As expected, the Redmi K50 Pro has three rear-facing cameras and a single front-facing one. Like many Xiaomi smartphones, the Redmi K50 Pro relies on a centred punch hole rather than an under-panel solution. Camera and display specifications remain unknown at this stage, although it appears that the Redmi K50 Pro has an in-display fingerprint scanner. Incidentally, the display has flat edges, mirroring the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition.
While Zouton speculates that the Redmi K50 Pro will launch with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, more reliable sources say otherwise. As we discussed earlier this month, the Redmi K50 Pro is rumoured to feature the Dimensity 8000 or Dimensity 8100, with the latter reported to be an overclocked version of the former. Additionally, the Redmi K50 Pro may support 66 W charging, not 120 W like the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition. The Redmi K50 Pro is tipped to arrive for significantly less than the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition, though.
According to @Shadow_Leak, the Redmi K50 Pro could launch for CNY 2,699 (~US$424), CNY 600 (~US$95) less than the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition. Reputedly, Xiaomi will unveil the Redmi K50 Pro in March alongside the rest of the Redmi K50 series. The Redmi K50 Pro may potentially make its way outside China as the Xiaomi 12i, based on the Mi 11i being the global alternative to the Redmi K40 Pro.
