Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi and their K Series are stuck in a limbo between gaming phones and daily driver ones, looks like the K60 Series will further blur the lines
Redmi is officially done with the crowd-favorite K50 Series after the final installment in the series, Redmi K50 Ultra last dropped in August. Now, the company reported that they are beginning on the next gen flagships they’ll be calling the Redmi K60 Series.
A bunch of infos regarding the K60 Series has been surfaced online but until then, no one can really verify it until DCS, a well-known tipster has (via ITHome) has revealed the K60 Series’ fast-charging capabilities: a 67W standard charging mode, 30W wireless charging, and a large 120W standard wired charging and 30W wireless is also in the works.
Keep in mind, Redmi’s has been conservative with their charging speeds until now. A pattern of trend is getting more sense here: the 67W will have the bigger battery over the more-premium 120W one. A 6.67 OLED display in 120Hz is also confirmed and is heavier than the previous K50, weighing in at around 210 grams.
As for the processor, the K60 Series will either have a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, the upcoming 8 Gen 2, or both. The most premium (and expensive) on the K60 roster will have a 2K display panel. The cameras will also get a makeover, as the 50MP main camera sensor might be having some tweaks from Redmi themselves, modifying some elements of the Sony IMX766 sensor.
It is also rumored that the series will feature an under-display fingerprint scanner, and a similar-“Dynamic Island” design derived from the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max smartphones.
