The Redmi K50 lineup arrived last week, and today it was the first sale of the duo. The Xiaomi brand sold 330,000 units of the Redmi K50 and Redmi K50 Pro phones in just five minutes, according to the official Weibo page of Redmi.
The amount includes four variants – the two phones with two memory options a piece. It is 10% better than the sales of the predecessor series – the Redmi K40, which was sold in three versions with even more RAM+storage options.
Both phones come in the same body, even have the same weight, despite some major differences. The K50 Pro has a Dimensity 9000 chipset, a 108MP main camera and 5,000mAh battery with 120W fast charging. The K50 brings a more affordable price tag, and for that Xiaomi downgraded the chip to Dimensity 8100, the camera to 48MP, and the charging to “just” 67W. However the battery capacity increased to 5,500mAh.
Next sale in China is scheduled for next Tuesday, and we still have no word when the series will escape the domestic market.
