About a couple of weeks ago, we heard that Xiaomi’s Redmi was planning to launch the Redmi K50i in India. And yesterday, a report claimed that the K50i will debut in India on July 20. Well, that report has turned out to be correct as Redmi has announced that the K50i will launch in India on July 20 after all.
Redmi hasn’t divulged any specs of the K50i yet, but the teaser shared by the company reveals the smartphone’s design. It has a triple camera setup on the rear, and blue is one of the color options you will get to choose from.
The Redmi K50i looks similar to the Redmi Note 11T Pro and Redmi Note 11T Pro+ launched in China in May. These are basically the same phones with different batteries and charging speeds. The Note 11T Pro packs a 5,080 mAh battery with 67W charging, whereas the Note 11T Pro+ comes with a 4,400 mAh battery with 120W charging.
Rumors claim the Redmi K50i will be a rebranded Redmi Note 11T Pro+, and if that’s true, you will get the Dimensity 8100 SoC, 6.6″ FullHD+ 144Hz LCD, 16MP selfie camera, 64MP primary camera (joined by 8MP ultrawide and 2MP macro units), stereo speakers, and a side-mounted fingerprint reader.
With the event still two weeks away, you can expect to hear more about the Redmi K50i from the company. And in the meantime, you can head this way to check the detailed specs of the Redmi Note 11T Pro and Redmi Note 11T Pro+.
