After the release of the Redmi K40 series in China, the company eventually launched the Mi 11x series in India. Xiaomi General Manager, Lu Weibong, said that gaming smartphones that they released were not popular among people and didn’t sell well due to the price. He wanted to correct this situation and to do so when the K40 series was launched. And expectedly, it sold more than 1 lakh units within minutes of its launch. The general manager has also asked his followers on Weibo about their thoughts and questions on the next Redmi K50 series.
He has also stated that the company has been analysing and understanding the smartphone market and the release of the K50 series is due to the increased interest by the audience. The K50 series smartphones are under initial development and could be released by the end of this year.
The Redmi K40 gaming series which was earlier launched in China, is tipped to be rebranded as Poco F3 GT in India and is most likely to launch within the next 3 months. A Chinese tipster has also claimed that the K50 phone will come with better video recording capabilities, increased efficiency of fast charging and an all-round improved display from the previous K40 series.
As mentioned earlier, Weibong had asked the audience for their thoughts about the K50 series, and on their wish list, some of them say that they are in favour of the new flagship Qualcomm chip, 512 GB storage and wireless charging. There have been some who have also asked for Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) on the camera and not an OLED display.
The company hasn’t released any kind of hints or teasers on their social media accounts or their website, so there is no official communication from the company. But as for when the Redmi K50 series could launch in India, it could be by the end of this year or even as early as January 2022. The company has not provided any specifications of the smartphone and also any kind of details about the launch.
