Redmi K60 Design, Colour Options Revealed; To Launch with Leather and Glass Back


Redmi K60 series launch is set to take place on December 27. The company will launch its new Redmi flagship smartphones in China. The devices might make it to other markets with different names or branding. While we wait for more details about that, Redmi has revealed the design of the K60 series. The latest teaser shows the rear panel design of the K60, which will sit between the K60e and the K60 Pro model. 

Xiaomi is expected to launch the phone in multiple colour options. The latest teaser (via) confirms that the Redmi K60 will debut in two colour options at least. One of the two colour options teased in the video has a leather back. Faux leather backs have been making rounds in the industry to give customers an alternative to glass back panels without losing out on the premium in-hand feel.

The latest Redmi teaser shows the K60 5G in its blue colour option, which will have a leather back panel. There will also be a glass back option. This particular variant will be black in colour. The highlight of this colour would be its carbon fibre-like texture on the back cover.

The rear panel teaser also gives us a better look at the camera module design. There is a rectangular camera module with a dual-tone design. The outsides of the camera module for the leather back option are blue in colour, whereas the camera array is black. With the black glass cover variant, the camera array colour is pitch black as compared to the other tones.

We can also see the triple-camera setup with two large circular cutouts and a square-shaped camera module. The LED flash is located next to the square-shaped camera cutout.

Xiaomi has not revealed the camera specs but reports suggest that one of the K60 series phones will have a 50MP triple-camera setup. The other phone’s camera will feature a 64MP triple-camera setup. 

The company has confirmed the display features though. The 12-bit screen will remain flat and sport a hole-punch cutout at the top centre. In terms of features, the 2K resolution display will offer up to 1400 nits of peak brightness and 1920Hz PWM dimming support. There will be support for the P3 colour gamut, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision. It is rumoured that all three devices will sport a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate support.

Xiaomi has also confirmed that the K60 Pro will feature a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, whereas the K60 will feature a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. The baseline K60e will get the new MediaTek Dimensity 8200 SoC. The flagship series is also confirmed to get up to 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 512GB of UFS 4.0 storage.

Other leaked details include up to 5500mAh battery with 67W fast charging and 30W wireless charging support in the vanilla model. The Pro model will get 120W fast charging and 30W wireless charging, whereas the K60e will only support 67W wired charging. The phones are expected to boot Android 13-based MIUI 14 out of the box. Some reports suggest that the K60e will get Android 12-based MIUI 13.
