A couple of months ago, we heard of Redmi K50, coming with an in-display fingerprint scanner in 2022 and last month, it was confirmed that the phone may have multiple variants, including a Redmi K50 Gaming Edition which would come with MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000 chipset.
And today with the appearance of the official teaser of the Redmi K50 some of these have been confirmed. Popular tipster Abhishek Yadav shared the teaser on Twitter, alongside the information he has personally confirmed. The teaser mentions Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, whereas Dimensity 9000 seems to be still an option for the Redmi K50, according to Abhishek.

Redmi K50 may have multiple variants
According to the tipster, the Reddmi K50 Series would feature Dimensity 9000 even though the teaser mentions Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. So it looks like a confirmation that there are at least two confirmed variants of the phone. Apart from that, the teaser confirms a 4,700mAh battery with 120W fast charging. The teaser also mentions ’dual VC liquid cooling’ hinting towards two vapour chambers that might exist on the phone to provide better a cooling solution.
As of now, the two variants, one with MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000 and another one with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 can be confirmed. However, the existence of a third variant can not be ruled out.
A previous report suggested that the Redmi K50 with Dimensity 9000 would come with a 120Hz or 144Hz LTPO OLED display. The report also claimed that the phone would offer an optical under-display fingerprint scanner and a quad rear camera setup.
Not much is known about the camera on the phone
The Redmi K50 Series may have a 64-megapixel Sony IMX686 or Samsung ISOCELL GW3 as the primary camera sensor, while one of the variants may also feature 108-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL HM2 sensor. Apart from that, nothing much is known about the phones and until all the variants are confirmed, the camera specifications are in a kind of messed up state.
However, we are expecting that more details regarding the Redmi K50 will start emerging soon ahead of the official launch as Xiaomi has already started teasing the phone on social media in China. We’re expecting three variants as of now, the base model alongside the K50 Pro 5G, and K50 Pro Plus 5G.
