Xiaomi has been teasing the specifications and features of the K60 series. The latest teaser reveals the camera specifications of the Redmi K60 Pro.

According to the latest teaser (via), the Redmi K60 Pro will feature a Sony IMX800 primary camera sensor. The same sensor has been used in the Xiaomi 13 5G, which was launched earlier this month in China. This means that the Redmi flagship smartphone will feature a 50MP Sony IMX800 primary camera sensor with an f/1.8 aperture and support for optical image stabilisation (OIS). The device will also feature Xiaomi Image Brain 2.0 (translated), which will help enhance the camera’s core photo and video-capturing capabilities.

The device is confirmed to feature a triple-camera setup. Xiaomi teased the design of the Pro model, which revealed a vertically aligned triple-camera setup inside the rectangular camera module. The teaser also revealed the phone in its grey colour back with a carbon fibre-like texture tapering towards the edges.

Xiaomi has also confirmed that the Pro phone will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. To keep thermals under check, there will be a 5,000 square mm vapour chamber liquid cooling area. The device is also confirmed to feature up to 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 512GB of UFS 4.0 storage.

In addition to this, the company revealed that the K60 series will feature a 12-bit display with a 2K resolution and 1400 nits of peak brightness. The display will support 1920Hz PWM Dimming, HDR10+, P3 colour gamut and Dolby Vision. We can also expect the devices to support a 120Hz refresh rate. All three phones are rumoured to sport a 6.67-inch AMOLED display.

The K60 5G is also confirmed to feature a leather back panel. It will launch in Blue and Black colours, with the latter sporting a glass back. The K60 5G is also tipped to feature a 5500mAh battery and support 67W fast charging. It could come with 30W wireless charging as well. The Pro model is expected to support 120W fast charging and 30W wireless charging. The rumour mill also claims that the K60e will support only 67W fast charging and miss out on wireless charging support.

The K60 5G or the K60e 5G could also feature a 64MP triple-camera setup. Xiaomi has confirmed that the K60e will feature a MediaTek Dimensity 8200 SoC. The K60 5G could get a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. 

Both the K60 Pro and the K60 5G will boot Android 13-based MIUI 14 out of the box. The K60e is likely to run on the Android 12-based MIUI 13 out of the box. Xiaomi is expected to launch the K60 series in India and other markets. However, the phones might launch as POCO devices in India. What are your thoughts about the K60 series?
