Xiaomi Redmi K60 series to launch with a 2K display option, a 50 MP camera and a dual SoC strategy
Digital Chat Station has provided initial information about the Redmi K60 series, albeit without going into too much detail. Writing on Weibo, the leaker asserts that Xiaomi will equip Redmi K60 models with various chipsets from MediaTek and Qualcomm, a strategy that the company has been employing for some time. It is worth stressing that none of these details have been confirmed yet, although Digital Chat Station has a solid reputation at this stage.
Unfortunately, Digital Chat Station has not outlined which chipsets Xiaomi will source. However, they have mentioned that all chipsets will be built on TSMC N4 nodes. For reference, MediaTek manufacturers the Dimensity 9000+ on a 4 nm process, as does Qualcomm with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. In other words, it seems likely that the Redmi K60 series will utilise a flagship chipset in one way or another.
Additionally, Digital Chat Station reports that Xiaomi will equip the Redmi K60 series with a flexible 2K screen with a centred front-facing camera. Hence, the Redmi K60 series could resemble something like the Redmi K50 Pro, pictured above. Separately, at least one model will utilise a modified Sony IMX766, the same sensor that Nothing uses in the Phone (1). Like other Redmi smartphones, Digital Chat Station expects the Redmi K60 series to feature in-display fingerprint scanners and batteries that support high wattage wired charging. Presumably, Xiaomi's 125 W charging technology will return with the Redmi K60 series. Currently, Xiaomi is expected to launch the Redmi K60 series in early 2023, approximately a year after the Redmi K50 series' debut.
