As per the latest report from Yogesh Brar, the Redmi K50s when compared to the Redmi K50i will have several improvements. This includes the display, processor, camera, and fast charging technology. Here are some of the possible specifications and capabilities of the upcoming Redmi K50s.

Redmi K50s Will Be Better Than Redmi K50i In Most Aspects

The Redmi K50s is said to feature a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. This is likely to be a 10-bit panel with support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+. Similarly, the smartphone is also expected to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Powering the Redmi K50s will be the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Do note that, the device is also expected to be available with 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage at a much lower price point.

How Much Will Redmi K50s Cost?

Considering features like a 200MP camera, Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, and 120W fast charging, the smartphone will not be a cheap device for sure. However, it is likely to undercut most Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC-powered smartphones. If this ever launches in India, the device is most likely to cost around Rs. 60,000.
