Xiaomi India, the country’s No.1 smartphone brand, today brought back its bestselling Redmi K series with the launch of Redmi K50i 5G. Turning the price to performance ratio on its head, Redmi K50i delivers extreme performance with the flagship MediaTek Dimensity 8100, 144Hz FFS AdaptiveSync Display, 67W Turbo charge and triple camera set-up at an affordable price. With this launch, Redmi promises a whole new world of extreme performance to the mid premium-segment of the Indian smartphone market.
“The Redmi K series set a new benchmark for performance in India with the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro in 2019, and we are delighted to bring it back,” said Raghu Reddy, Chief Business Officer Xiaomi India. “Redmi K50i 5G is the most powerful Redmi ever. It has everything a consumer would want, from an insanely powerful processor to one of the highest refresh rate displays to phenomenal cameras to great battery life with super fast charging. This is extreme performance, with zero compromises. And as befits a Redmi device, it is affordable too, reflecting our constant commitment to make technology not just cutting edge but also accessible!“
What makes Redmi K50i 5G an extreme performer is the flagship processor that drives it. The heart of the phone is the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 processor, which is built using the TSMC N5 (5nm-class) process, and comes with four ARM Cortex A78 super cores, and four ARM Cortex A55 efficiency cores, striking the perfect balance between power-packed performance and power efficiency. The result is a processor that is capable of handling anything and everything that is thrown at it and delivers Antutu scores that are higher than almost every flagship chipset out there. Aiding this ultimate performance are speedy LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage, ensuring speedy and smooth multitasking. Whether it is multitasking between dozens of apps, editing videos and images, or getting through intense sessions of BGMI, Genshin impact and Asphalt racing, Redmi K50i 5G is exceptionally comfortable with extreme performance. The phone comes with LiquidCool 2.0, featuring a 7-layer graphite sheet which ensures that it stays cool no matter how hefty the tasks may be.
Extremely smooth Display:
Adding an extra edge to this performance, is a top of the 16.7cm (6.6) full HD+ liquid Field Fringe Switching (FFS) display. A first in a Redmi device to support Dolby Vision™, with 100% DCI-P3 gamut coverage, support for 1 Billion colors, and a market-leading 144Hz 7-stage adaptive refresh rate. The display can smartly switch refresh rates depending on the content being shown on it, optimizing battery life. Field Fringe Switching enables the display to deliver better light transmittance, better colour reproduction, and wider viewing angles, all while keeping it power efficient.
Redmi K50i 5G delivers exceptional multimedia as well. The phone comes with support from Dolby Atmos®, as well as Hi-Res wired and wireless audio. On board are dual stereo speakers for terrific sound along with a 3.5 mm audio jack for those who want to use wired headphones with the device. It supports a 3.5mm audio jack too – it can not only support regular earphones, but even powerful headphones, thanks to its output capacity of 500 mv at 32 ohms. Audiophiles can leave their DACs behind! Taking the experience a notch higher, Redmi K50i 5G also comes with dual voice assistant making it a perfect intelligent, entertaiment partner.
