Redmi K60 Series – Here’s all we know so far

Redmi K60E, K60 & K60 Pro are launching on December 27 in China

In the first half of this year, we got the Redmi K50 series, including the K50 Gaming Edition, K50, and K50 Pro. The Gaming Edition had Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the Redmi K50 had the Dimensity 8100, and the K50 Pro featured the Dimensity 9000 SOC. Later in August, the Redmi K50 Extreme Edition was launched in China with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. The Extreme Edition also had a unique 1.5K display.

Now, Redmi is all set to unveil the K60 series in the Chinese market. The K60 series is launching on December 27, and the company has already confirmed that there are at least three phones that are launching – Redmi K60E, Redmi K60 & Redmi K60 Pro. The company has shared some key features on its Weibo page and will keep doing that till the launch. So, we will be updating the article as we get more details.

Design-wise, the Redmi K60 series has a different camera module design than the K50 series, and one image also shows a carbon fiber pattern under the rear glass back. Also, do not mistake that third camera for a periscope camera since it is a standard lens, not a periscope lens.

As for the SOCs, the Redmi K60E is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 8200, the Redmi K60 is powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, and the Redmi K60 Pro is powered by the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.

The Redmi K60 Pro features a VC Liquid cooling system with a heat dissipation area of 5000 mm square, which is the largest in the Redmi K series. The company used stainless steel material, and while the area is 26% larger, the overall weight has been reduced. The phone also has up to 16GB LPDDR5X RAM and 512GB UFS 4.0 storage. So, performance-wise, there are no compromises. We may not see a “Gaming Edition” under the Redmi K60 series.

Another highlight of the Redemi K60 series is the 2K display. Since both the Redmi K50 & K50 Pro had a 2K display, we are expecting the same to be the case with the Redmi K60 & K60 Pro. In one post, Redmi shared the specifications of the Redmi K60 Pro’s display. This is a 12-bit Quad-HD+ OLED display with HDR10+ and Dolby Vision support, 526PPI pixel density, and 1920Hz PWM Dimming. The peak brightness of this panel is 1400 nits which is higher than the 1200-nits peak brightness of the Redmi K50 Pro’s display.

Well, the Redmi K50 launched at ¥2399 (~$379) and the K50 Pro at ¥2999 (~$472) so let’s see at what price the Redmi K60 series launches in China.
