In a week, the Indian Mi fans will meet a new smartphone from Xiaomi, namely the Redmi K50i. The latter is planned to be uncovered in the world’s second-largest market on July 20. We know almost everything about this handset and we have to say its specs look quite attractive. Among them, we have to point out the Dimensity 8100 chip. Today, Redmi India not only confirmed this but also displayed a screenshot with the benchmark results. Yes, it’s going to be a very powerful device in its price range.

As we can see, in the AnTuTu benchmark platform, the Redmi K50i scores 822,274 points. The result shows that the Redmi K50i got more than some Snapdragon 888 phones and the iPhone 13 series with its A15 chip. And though in general, AnTuTu’s Android and iOS benchmarks cannot be directly compared, this is a clear hint that our protagonist will make competition to many Android mid-rangers that are currently on the market.
Redmi K50i Specs
As for the rest of the features, the Redmi K50i is expected to be a rebranded model of the Redmi Note 11T Pro+. The latter came with the Dimensity 8100 chip as well. However, apart from the latter, it sports a 6.6-inch 144Hz IPS LCD (FHD+, 20.5:9) screen, and a triple camera on the rear comes with the 64MP+8MP+ 2MP sensors combination, a 16MP front-facing camera, a 3.5mm jack, and a 4400mAh battery. By the way, though this is not a flagship phone, it still supports 120W fast charging. Thus, the battery can reach 50% in 10 minutes and 100% in 19 minutes.
We think there will be some minor differences between the Redmi Note 11T Pro+ and the Redmi K50i because such a practice is common when launching a rebranded model. For instance, the Poco X4 GT has many things in common with the Redmi Note 11T Pro+, but it comes with a 5080mAh battery and a 67W charging (100% in 46 minutes).
Redmi India ought to commence shipping the phone on July 22. The 6GB+128GB variant costs 27,000 Indian rupees (about $339), while the 8GB+256GB model is 32,000 Indian rupees (about $402).
