Xiaomi Redmi K50 series to launch with CyberEngine, a new x-axis haptics motor developed for greater precision and vibration strength
Xiaomi continues to tease the Redmi K50 series on Weibo ahead of a February anticipated launch. So far, the company has confirmed that at least one model would feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, currently Qualcomm's flagship mobile SoC. Additionally, the Redmi K50 series will support 120 W wired charging, vapour chamber cooling and a 4,700 mAh battery.
In effect, the Redmi K50 series will include some of the innovations that Xiaomi brought to its Redmi Note brand with the Redmi Note 11 series. Now, the company has teased that the Redmi K50 series will ship with a new x-axis haptics motor dubbed 'CyberEngine'. Supposedly, the CyberEngine is the largest haptics motor that Xiaomi has included in a smartphone to date, with it spanning 560 mm².
Additionally, Xiaomi states that the CyberEngine operates at between 50 Hz and 500 Hz, a range that should make it more precise than contemporary haptics motors. For reference, the equivalent in the iPhone 13 series peaks at 130 Hz. Xiaomi reports that the CyberEngine is 3x stronger than those that are commercially available at the moment. Unfortunately, it is unclear in which Redmi K50 devices the CyberEngine will be present. Presumably, the haptics motor will be in at least the Redmi K50 Gaming, which has leaked previously.
