Xiaomi Redmi K70 Pro smartphone review: Spectacular hardware for a mid-range price [Poco F6 Pro]

An impressive 4061 nits for less than $500! With its bright 1400p AMOLED display, WiFi 7, a Snapdragon 8 Gen3 with up to 24 GB of RAM and a camera system with OIS, the Redmi K70 Pro is more than just an insider tip among the flagship killers. Does Xiaomi's mid-range phone have any weaknesses? Let's find out.
The Xiaomi Redmi K70 Pro in review

If any smartphone deserves the title of "flagship killer", it's definitely the Redmi K70 Pro. With up to 24 GB of RAM, the best chipset currently available in an Android smartphone and over 4000 nits, the Xiaomi smartphone sets standards for the year 2024 in the mid-range, at least on the data sheet.

However, the Redmi K70 Pro is only available as an import for now, including from Trading Shenzhen with 12 GB RAM and 256 GB flash storage for a price of around $485. The top model with 24 GB RAM and 1 TB flash storage costs around $730. If the rumors are true, the Xiaomi smartphone will also get a global launch, albeit with different branding, namely as the Poco F6 Pro.

In order to achieve these aggressively low prices, Xiaomi has installed solid, but not high-end hardware in the cameras. However, buyers will still benefit from optical image stabilization and an 8K video option for the 50 MP main camera.

Lamborghini edition of the Redmi K70 Pro

The Redmi K70 comes in two designs. While the standard design appears rather plain and inconspicuous, the two Lamborghini editions are very distinctive. In total, there are five colors to choose from. IP certification has been omitted to minimize costs, but the SIM card slot has a red-coloured sealing ring.

The edges around the 6.67-inch AMOLED panel are not symmetrical, but they are thin, which results in a better display-to-surface ratio of 89%. Since Xiaomi has decided against a protective glass from Corning for the 14 Pro and opted for an in-house material solution, we assume that no Gorilla Glass is used for the K70 Pro either and there is no official information on this.

The build quality and feel are very good for a mid-range smartphone and the built-in keys sit comfortably firmly in the aluminum frame. The gaps are also flush and give no cause for criticism. The only drawback is the plastic back, which doesn't attract greasy finger marks thanks to its matte finish and doesn't feel all that cheap.

Equipment - IR blaster on board

With Bluetooth 5.4, dual SIM, stereo speakers, an IR blaster and NFC for contactless payment, the Redmi K70 Pro offers very well-rounded features for the mid-range. As expected, the USB-C port is only of the 2.0 standard, which means that wired image output is not possible here. In our copy test with a M2.SSD hard disk (Samsung 980 Pro), the transfer speed of the USB port is a low 30 MB/s. The connected storage media can be formatted with FAT, FAT32 or exFAT. Xiaomi also supports reading and writing for NTFS drives.

Our test device has 256 GB of UFS 4.0 storage, but the actual available storage space is less (around 227 GB) due to the operating system and some pre-installed apps. If you need more space, you can transfer files to an external storage medium, such as memory sticks, via USB-OTG. Storage expansion with a microSD card is not possible.

The K70 Pro does not support wired image output, but the wireless transmission of display content to external monitors via Miracast is possible. Video content from streaming services can be viewed in HD quality thanks to Widevine L1.

Software - HyperOS

The Redmi K70 Pro utilizes the Xiaomi HyperOS kernel, a fusion of Linux and the self-developed Vela system. At the time of review, the HyperOS interface was based on the latest Android 14, including security patches from February 2024. Xiaomi plans to provide the K70 Pro with security-relevant updates for five years, but it is not certain how often these will be rolled out each year. The same applies to the number of planned Android upgrades. However, the update supply for Redmi models has not been reliable in the past (increasingly longer intervals as they get older).

The K70 Pro does not support Google apps or a comprehensive language selection ex works. Here, users have to install the apk files themselves, such as the Playstore, and make do with English as the interface language. There are also limitations with Android Auto.

Communication and GNSS - 5G included

Thanks to WiFi 7, the Redmi K70 Pro delivers blazing speeds, provided the corresponding counterpart is just as fast. Connected to our Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 reference router, very high transfer rates in the 6 GHz range of over 1800 MBit/s are also possible, at least when sending. However, the high data rates are quite inconsistent and fluctuate greatly.

In addition to the high-performing WiFi, the K70 Pro utilizes the fast 5G standard and a solid frequency range on the 4G network. However, band 20 and 32 are missing from the 17 LTE bands often used in countries worldwide.

The Redmi K70 Pro uses the main satellite systems to establish its position: GPS, Galileo, GLONASS and Beidou, usually in dual band. The positioning accuracy of the mid-range smartphone, which we put to the test on a short bike ride, is very good.

We recorded a route in parallel with the Garmin Venu 2 for comparison purposes. Deviations between the measurements of both devices are generally minor, but we like the detailed tracking on the Redmi K70 Pro even better than on the Garmin smartwatch. But the recorded routes are often congruent. The Redmi smartphone is thus more than suitable for everyday navigational tasks.

The Redmi K70 Pro offers a fully-fledged dual SIM with two nano-SIM card slots, but there is no option of integrating an eSIM into the system. Calls can also be made via WLAN.

The K70 Pro's two built-in microphones provide good voice quality, although this is somewhat impaired by minor background noise. The noise suppression works at a satisfactory level. The same applies to the voice quality via the earphones.

Cameras - OIS part of the package

The mid-range smartphone's selfie camera takes photos with a resolution of 16 MP and uses fixed focus to focus on the subject. In bright surroundings, the quality is absolutely satisfactory, but the lack of a 4K video option means that the Redmi K70 Pro is not a vlogging expert.

The 50 MP main camera is more suitable for recording moving images thanks to the supported 8K recording or 4K60 option, but the stabilization is not at flagship level despite OIS.

In terms of photo quality, the Light Hunter 800 image sensor, a 1/1.55-inch sensor from Omnivision, delivers thoroughly appealing results. The dynamic range is convincing and the shots have with plenty of light thanks to the large aperture (f/1.6). However, photos taken with the Redmi K70 Pro often appear somewhat overexposed. The sharpness level could also be a little higher.

The mid-range phone also offers a lossless zoom. The 50 MP lens has 2x optical magnification and the results are quite impressive. However, if you want to get closer to the subject, you'll quickly lose quality so that there is hardly any detail at 5x zoom.

The main and telephoto optics are complemented by a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle camera. The sharpness of the images is okay for this price range, but background noise is already visible in daylight. However, the third lens in the Redmi K70 Pro's camera array always delivers satisfactory results for social media.

Under controlled lighting conditions, we analyzed the color representation of the Light Hunter 800 in comparison to the actual reference colors. Apart from the typical brightening that often occurs in smartphones, the Redmi K70 Pro does not reveal any major deviations in the ColorChecker passport. The smartphone only exhibits color outliers (>10) in cyan.

Input devices & operation

The capacitive touchscreen responds very precisely to finger input. With a sampling rate of up to 2160 Hz, the OLED panel is highly sensitive to touches, but the screen only refreshes 2160 times per second in certain application scenarios, such as in games, in order to ensure very low latency for inputs.

Xiaomi installs a solid x-axis vibration motor in the Redmi K70 Pro, which provides pleasant haptic feedback in everyday use. The optical fingerprint sensor is integrated into the OLED display and unlocks reliably and quickly. There is also the 2D facial recognition, which functions via the front camera.

Display - Decent AMOLED panel

The OLED display uses an RGGB sub-pixel matrix consisting of one red, one blue and two green LEDs.
The OLED display uses an RGGB sub-pixel matrix consisting of one red, one blue and two green LEDs.

The built-in 6.67-inch AMOLED display from TCL reaches a WQHD+ resolution and a very high pixel density of 522 ppi. The system outputs a minimum frequency of 60 Hz for the 120 Hz screen in automatic mode. Alternatively, the refresh rate can also be fixed at 60 or 120 Hz.

The maximum brightness with a pure white display and activated ambient light sensor is 1026 cd/m²; the display appears brighter when the light and dark areas are evenly distributed (APL18). Here, however, the Redmi K70 Pro falls slightly short of our expectations with 1236 cd/m². Fortunately, we still achieved the advertised peak brightness of 4000 nits, namely 4061 cd/m², when playing back 4K video material. This makes the Redmi K70 Pro ideally suited to the playback of HDR content. HLG, HDR10+ and HDR Vivid as well as Dolby Vision are supported.

Due to the OLED technology, Xiaomi uses PWM modulation to control screen brightness, including the typical screen flickering. In our measurement with the oscilloscope, the amplitude curve is very even across the entire brightness spectrum and constant at 120 Hz. A special feature of the Redmi K70 Pro, however, is the very high frequency of 3840 Hz, at which the panel exhibits visually perceptible fluctuations in luminance. This should make the OLED display much more suitable for users with PWM sensitivity than the basic flickering suggests. 


Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 120 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 120 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 120 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17803 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Series of measurements at a fixed zoom level and different brightness settings

The calibration setting options are very extensive. In addition to three color profiles, there is an "Advanced" mode to choose from. This allows both the color temperature and individual parameters, such as saturation or color space, to be adjusted, while the larger DCI-P3 color space and another very well-calibrated color mode are also available for use.

We examined the deviations in the color calibration of the AMOLED panel using the Calman analysis software. In the "Original" profile, the sRGB color space is almost completely covered. Differences in the individual colors are barely discernible. Our measured DeltaE values indicate a slight deviation in the colors and grayscale within the target range (<3).

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
1.17 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.625 ms rise
↘ 0.5435 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 2 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
0.99 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.488 ms rise
↘ 0.5005 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.7 ms).

Outdoors, the Xiaomi smartphone benefits from its high brightness levels and leaves a great impression. The panel has enough brightness reserves to cope with early summer light situations. However, reflections limit the readability of the AMOLED panel somewhat. It should be noted that the maximum luminance without a brightness sensor is only 507 cd/m².

We like the viewing angle stability very much; only a slight loss of brightness is visible at very flat viewing angles. Colors remain vivid even when the screen is tilted and there is no inversion. 

Performance - Modern Qualcomm SoC

The Redmi K70 Pro is very much future-proof when it comes to the choice of SoC. With the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, Xiaomi installs the best chip to date. In our benchmarks, the mid-range phone with 16 GB DDR5x RAM and fast 256 GB UFS 4.0 memory performs at a very high level.

The single-core CPU performance in Geekbench 5.5 is very strong, and the K70 Pro performs better than the Nubia RedMagic 9 Pro with its Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, especially in the multi-core benchmarks. However, the Xiaomi smartphone unexpectedly lags behind in version 6.2, but still outperforms the Realme GT5 with last year's SoC in multi-core, which was to be expected due to the high clocked Cortex A720 cores. Otherwise, there is nothing comparable to be found in the mid-range, as even the MediaTek Dimensity 8300 Ultra performs significantly worse in the tests than the Qualcomm chipset in the K70 Pro.

In the graphics tests, the Redmi K70 Pro delivers very good results thanks to its Adreno 750. In GFXBench in particular, it often outperforms the Nubia RedMagic 9 Pro and is able to utilize the panel's full 120 Hz in the on-screen values. However, fluctuations can be seen in the off-screen values and in the 3DMark results - probably due to a thermally induced reduction in performance.

In terms of storage speed, the UFS 4.0 memory of the Redmi K70 Pro offers excellent performance. The AndroBench values are very good, especially in reading and writing. However, some minor weaknesses show up when writing small blocks of data.

Gaming - Up to 90 fps

To assess the graphics power of the Adreno GPU outside of benchmarks in everyday use, we take a look at two games from the PlayStore using a tool from our partner, GameBench

Although the display supports a refresh rate of 120 Hz, we "only" get 60 fps in the first-person shooter Dead Trigger 2, which should theoretically enable HFR gaming up to 144 Hz. Based on the strong on-screen values of GFXBench, this was unexpected. There is probably a lack of software optimization here.

This assumption is also confirmed by the 90 fps in PUBG Mobile at low details. The typical 60 fps is possible in the HD setting and the Redmi K70 Pro runs at a constant 40 fps at the highest detail level (UHD).

Emissions - Moderate throttling

Temperature

The Redmi K70 Pro manages to keep its surface temperatures well under control in everyday use, but we measured a rather high waste heat of over 45.2 degrees in our burnout benchmark. This resulted in moderate throttling of system performance of 20 to 30% in the Wild Life Stress Tests of 3DMark. A better cooled (gaming) smartphone, such as the Nubia RedMagic 9 Pro, throttles its Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 significantly less and operates at a higher performance level overall.

Speakers

The Redmi K70 Pro has two speakers, but a sound generator is located in the earpiece, so it does not produce uniform stereo sound. The speaker on the bottom end is very loud: we measured a maximum volume of over 92 dB. Deep bass is lacking, and the Pink Noise also shows an ascending frequency curve for the mids. Overall, the Redmi K70 Pro is still very decent for the mid-range.

If you want to use an external sound output, you can use the wired USB port or wireless Bluetooth 5.4. The latter uses the SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX HD, aptX Adaptive, aptX TWS+, LDAC and LHDC V5 codecs. LC3 or aptX Lossless is not supported.

Battery life - 120 watt charging

Power consumption

The integrated lithium-ion polymer battery has a capacity of 5000 mAh and is charged very quickly at 120 watts. Thanks to the in-house Xiaomi P2 and Xiaomi G1 chips, a long battery service life is guaranteed despite the high charging times. Those on the go can also fall back on common fast charging protocols (QC3+, PD3.0) for quick battery charging. It took us around 30 minutes for a full charge with the included power adapter. Individuals in a hurry can activate boost mode, which charges the battery in 20 minutes. Wireless charging is not available.

The power consumption of the K70 Pro is rather inconspicuous in idle mode as well as under load. However, 16 watts at peak is not low, even for a Snapdragon 8 Gen3 smartphone
