Yesterday, Lu Weibing, President of Xiaomi Group China and General Manager of the Redmi brand, took to Weibo to hype up Redmi products coming in 2022. The question posed was rather straightforward, seeking netizens’ word on the product they’re looking forward to the most.
The replies to the post mostly revolved around the upcoming Redmi K50 series and netizens expect the flagship to start at just 1,999 Yuan or around $313 – a reasonable guess considering that Redmi has maintained that price for the Redmi K20, Redmi K30 5G, and the Redmi K40.
Lu Weibing has been hyping up the upcoming series for a while now, recently posting another similar question on Weibo about whether the Redmi K50 series needs an SE model. Mi Fans had responded to it saying that it’s unnecessary as the lineup will already be offering 4 models.
As for the Redmi K50 devices themselves, the series will be offering four high-end chipset options, namely the Snapdragon 8 Gen1, MediaTek 9000, MediaTek 7000, and the Snapdragon 870. Other known specs include 108-megapixel primary camera, X-axis haptics motor, and JBL dual stereo speakers.
The lineup will likely be comprised of Redmi K50, K50 Pro, K50 Pro+, and K50 Gaming Edition and will be debuting in early 2022.
