Redmi K50i First Impressions: Check Out Is It A Flagship Device Or Not?

Redmi K50i First Impressions

The powerhouse Redmi K-series smartphones from Xiaomi haven’t always been readily available in India. In 2019, power consumers flocked to the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro, both of which remained popular for a long time.

The business has now unveiled the Redmi K50i, a new device that is designed specifically with gamers in mind. To help you decide if it strikes the right balance for you, let’s unbox this phone and review its specifications.

Newly released Redmi K50i models come with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for Rs. 25,999 in India and 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for Rs. 28,999.

It comes packaged in a rather simple box without even a picture. On one hand, the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 SoC and support for both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos are lauded as this phone’s key selling factors.

There are a few more specifications that are emphasised on the back as well; we’ll talk about those later. Here, the “Made in India” branding truly pops.

Looks like another smartphone with a range of colours! With practically every other smartphone this year, the practice of changing colour schemes with the light at the front panel is in vogue.

The Redmi K50i adopts the same stylish style while adding a colour gradient finish to the rear.

It has a plastic body formed entirely of the frame and weighs about 200 grammes (quite a little, for a plastic body?) Well, the weight distribution and design handle everything, and the edges have minor curves that make using them comfortably.

It has a 6.6-inch Liquid FFS Display with support for a 144 Hz refresh rate and 270 Hz touch sampling rate instead of an AMOLED display, which surprised me given the pricing.

The display is additionally protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Dolby Vision playback is also supported. As of now, the display is likely to produce vibrant colours in indoor lighting conditions.

If you look past its appearance, you’ll discover a potent smartphone with a performance focus that prioritises gaming and demanding workloads.

I was able to switch between programmes without experiencing any lags using the Density 8100 processor in conjunction with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage, and even gaming performed admirably over a brief session of 30 minutes playing Call of Duty: Mobile at high graphics.

You’ll have to wait till we publish our comprehensive review to learn how it performs under intensive use and gaming.

The Redmi K50i has a potent processor and a big 5080 mAh battery with 67W fast charging capabilities. Speaking about its user interface, the Redmi K50i comes pre-installed with MIUI 13, which is based on Android 12.

Should you be concerned about already installed apps? Yes, sadly! However, you feel that bloatware pop-up notifications are a thing of the past.

The device has three cameras on the back: a 64MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2MP macro camera.

The punch-hole camera in the centre has a 16MP lens that is located in the front. The camera appears to have the potential to handle photography with bright, clear photographs even after limited use.

Redmi goes one step further to compete fiercely with its rivals by introducing MediaTek Dimensity 8100 in the sub-Rs. 30000 market. The Redmi K50i handles even intensive usage nicely so far, and there have been no complaints.

But can it outperform competitors from brands like iQOO, Realme, Poco, and Oppo in this market while also outperforming them in other areas? I hope so!
