The Xiaomi Redmi K60 and K60 Pro are the first Android smartphones in their series to officially launch with 30W wireless charging, according to the company. They have also been joined for the first time by the K60E, which has some of their better features like 2K AMOLED displays and an OIS-enhanced primary back camera.
Redmi has now announced that the newest iteration of its K series is out, replete with a first-generation K60E running for the first time on the MediaTek Dimensity 8200 SoC. On the other hand, the Xiaomi brand’s first Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and 8 Gen 2 platforms have been announced as the K50 and K50 Pro’s successors.
The K60 Pro and K60 stack a 6.67-inch OLED displays that, while equipped with 1,400-nit peak brightness ratings, advanced 12-bit color, 120Hz refresh rates and 1,920Hz PWM dimming, is not of the Samsung E6 variant.
Redmi may feel that the premium Easter eggs that are present throughout the entire new line-up, including the upgrade to 30W wireless charging seen in the K60 as well as the K60 Pro and the Gorilla Glass Victus for the K60E’s own 2K (albeit 10-bit and 1,200-nit) AMOLED display, may make up for that, though.
Redmi saves its most advanced features, including as 120W wired charging and the Sony IMX800 primary camera, for the Pro model. The K60E and K60, which have a similar design, are limited to using older 48MP and 64MP cameras, respectively.
