In accordance with the convention, in order to welcome the upcoming Double 11, various mobile phone manufacturers will specially launch flagship phones featuring cost-effective performance, to seize part of the market. Last year, Xiaomi’s Redmi K30s was a highly praised “Double 11 special flagship”.
Thanks to the excellent performance of Redmi K30s last year, many netizens are waiting for a new Redmi K40s series with Snapdragon 888 this year, but nothing has happened. From the latest news, it seems that this new phone has been cut in the domestic market, and there may only be a few models of Snapdragon 870.
It should be noted that the source also revealed some information about the new flagship, saying: “The next major battleground should be Xiaomi MI 12 and Redmi K50.”
According to multiple sources, both mi 12 and Redmi K50 will be powered by Qualcomm’s next-generation flagship processor Snapdragon 898, which is built using 4nm technology and has a modified architecture compared to its predecessor. Overall performance will climb again, while power consumption and heating are also expected to be reduced.
The Mi 12 is also expected to debut its Snapdragon 898 chip as early as mid-December, while Redmi K50 is expected to debut later, possibly after the Lunar New Year.
According to some leaks, Mi 12 series will continue the design of the previous three models, including the Mi 12, the Mi 12 Pro and the Mi 12 Ultra. The Mi 12 will be the entry-level version, equipped with the same chip, but may be weaker in fast charging, video, screen and other aspects. Ultra will be xiaomi’s top product and will stand at the top of the industry in every aspect.
As for Redmi K50 series, there should also be three new phones. There are some differences in screen and rear camera, but it will still take the ultimate cost-effective video recording route, which is worth looking forward to.
