Redmi K60 Gaming Launch: What to Expect?

It looks like many brands have lined up to release flagships packing the next-gen Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. One of the latest leaks suggests the Moto X40 could be the first phone to launch with this processor.

As a Redmi smartphone, we can expect the new flagship to be competitively priced. One of the latest flagships -- the Redmi K50i --has been attractively priced in the sub-Rs. 25K segment.
