Xiaomi Redmi K60, Redmi K60 Pro and Redmi K60E detailed with various MediaTek and Snapdragon chipsets and 120 W charging for top model
Kacper Skrzypek has shared new details about the Redmi K60 series, one of two upcoming smartphone series that Xiaomi has in development. According to Skrzypek, Xiaomi has developed three Redmi K60 series models, with Xiaomi having already certified one model with the 3C in China earlier this month. Thought to be the Redmi K60, Skrzypek alleges that Xiaomi also plans to release the Redmi K60 Pro and the Redmi K60E, with the latter appearing to have no direct predecessor.
To that end, Sparrows News reports that Xiaomi has now certified two other Redmi K60 series models with the same regulatory body. As the screenshot below demonstrates, only one model supports 120 W fast charging, with Xiaomi restricting the other two models to 67 W. Potentially, ‘Redmi K60E’ could be shorthand for Redmi K60 Extreme, which would see it serve as a replacement for the Redmi K50 Ultra (Extreme Edition). Incidentally, Skrzypek claims that the Redmi K60E, codenamed ‘Rembrandt’ will utilise an unknown MediaTek SoC, potentially the Dimensity 8200 or Dimensity 9200. By contrast, Xiaomi has based the regular Redmi K60 around the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which Skrzypek adds Xiaomi has codenamed ‘Socrates’.
The leaker has revealed information about the Redmi K60 Pro too, although it is at odds with its ‘Pro’ moniker. Reputedly, the Redmi K60 Pro will rely on the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 rather than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, although Skrzypek is unsure why this would be the case. Currently, it is unknown when Xiaomi will announce the Redmi K60 series in China, let alone the Redmi K60, Redmi K60 Pro and Redmi K50E’s global models. However, Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing has hinted that new models could be arriving soon, which he revealed earlier this week.
