Xiaomi Confirms it Won’t Launch Flagship Redmi Phones With LCD Screens in 2021

Last year, some of the Redmi K30 series devices such as Redmi K30S, Redmi K30S Extreme came equipped with LCD panels.

Xiaomi‘s Redmi got an independent identity in China a couple of years back, and as a result, Redmi K-series, a flagship-killer lineup, came into existence. All Redmi K20 series devices were equipped with AMOLED displays, but with Redmi K30 series, Redmi decided to go with LCD panel on some models in favor of higher refresh rate panels. These devices include Redmi K30 (known as POCO X2 in India), Redmi K30S (called Mi 10T in global markets), Redmi K30S Extreme (known as Mi 10T Pro in global markets), and more. Now, Xiaomi has confirmed that it will not launch any Redmi flagship with an LCD display.

In response to a query, Redmi director, Wang revealed that Redmi won’t launch a flagship smartphone with LCD this year. Further, he suggested the users to buy a Redmi K30S in case they want a flagship smartphone with LCD display.

This means that going forward, all flagship smartphones from Redmi will offer an AMOLED panel. This must be good news for the users, no matter which region/market they belong to. As often Redmi K-series devices end up launching under POCO, or Mi branding in global markets.

Xiaomi unveiled Redmi Note 10 series devices including Redmi Note 10, Redmi Note 10 5G, Redmi Note 10S, Redmi Note 10 Pro, and Redmi Note 10 Pro Max in global markets a couple of months back, and except for the Redmi Note 10 5G, all the devices are equipped with an AMOLED panel. In fact, the Redmi Note 10 Pro series devices even offer higher-refresh rate panels.

In other news, Xiaomi’s Redmi is gearing up to launch the  Redmi Note 10S in the Indian market. The company will also launch first-ever Redmi smartwatch – Redmi Watch alongside Redmi Note 10S in May 13th event.
