Next week, Qualcomm will hold the 2022 Snapdragon Summit. We eagerly await this event because the American company will take wraps off the new beast, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Its closes rival, the Dimensity 9200, has already been announced. So we want to see how these two will fight.
Redmi K60 specs and price
The first model with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will likely be the Xiaomi Mi 13 series. It includes several models. But the Mi 13 and Mi 13 Pro will appear first. The Ultra version will be absent and released later in the year or the middle of next year. There are rumors that the series will also include another model, the Xiaomi Mi 13X. But the latter has nothing in common with the ones introduced above. It will have a lower positioning and come with a Dimensity chip.
Well, Xiaomi and Redmi have always been walking hand in hand. It seems nothing has changed. So there is every reason to think that the Redmi K60 will hit the market soon. Before this, we learned that it got a few certifications and is almost ready to go on sale. The series should include at least two models. What’s more surprising, the high-end variant will sport the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. This is not a premium handset, but it will provide outstanding performance.
Today, a Weibo blogger said that the Redmi K60 would have no equal on the market. He meant there wouldn’t be a cheaper phone powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
Regarding other specs, the Redmi K60 will have a 2K screen with a 1440*3200 resolution. The latter will use an AMOLED panel, supporting a 120Hz refresh rate with a maximum brightness of 1000 nits. Moreover, this series will support at least 67W fast charging.
In addition, the standard version of the Redmi K60 will come with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip. This is an overhaul in comparison to the previous generation’s Dimensity 8100.
At the same time, due to ISP and various adjustments, the camera will be stronger than the previous generation. Of course, it will come with OIS (optical image stabilization) as standard.
