The Redmi K50i has officially launched in India, and according to Redmi’s word, this phone is “Extreme” both in terms of its features and in terms of cost. The MediaTek Dimensity 8100 chipset makes the Redmi K50i the cheapest smartphone in India right now. That’s not all, too, since Redmi has virtually included everything in this phone that makes it an affordable gaming smartphone. Examine every aspect of it.

There are two storage options for the Redmi K50i available in India. There will be a basic model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for Rs. 25,999. A model with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage, on the other hand, is also available and costs Rs. 28,999.

Redmi K50i’s specifications and pricing

The Redmi K50i presently outperforms the Poco F4 in terms of performance for the price, making it the most potent smartphone available for less than Rs. 30,000. Performance-wise, the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 is on par with the Snapdragon 888 while operating cooler. Along with UFS 3.1 storage and LPDDR5 RAM, this guarantees that the phone will start up very quickly. Redmi comes pre-installed with MIUI 13, which is based on Android 12.

You will receive a 6.67-inch FHD+ Field Fringe Switching LCD screen with a variable refresh rate of up to 144Hz for the display. One billion colours, 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut, and Dolby Vision are all supported. For those who are curious, field fringe switching allows the display to maintain power efficiency while providing superior light transmittance, better colour reproduction, and broader viewing angles than an IPS LCD panel.

The phone includes dual speakers that support Dolby ATmos as well. Redmi claims that the 3.5mm headphone jack’s audiophile-grade circuitry eliminates the need for a DAC. A 64MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2MP macro camera are all included in the triple camera system at the back of the phone. A 5080mAh battery that supports 67W rapid cable charging powers the whole system. The phone is also IP53 certified, making it resistant to dust and water. Additionally, Gorilla Glass 5 is used to protect the display.
