The Redmi K50 Gaming Series is preparing to replace the Redmi Gaming series that started in 2021. A total of 2 devices will be released and one will be exclusive to China.
A few days ago, we informed you that Xiaomi is working on a device with the Mediatek Dimensity 2000 (or Dimensity 9000 according to recent leaks) processor under the codename Matisse. Today, according to the information we found on Mi Code, we learned more about these devices and we transfer them to you.
Redmi K50 Gaming Pro / POCO F4 GT (Matisse, L10)
This device will be the best device in the Redmi K50 Gaming series. As mentioned before, the device will be powered by the Dimensity 9000 processor. The model number is L10 and the codename is matisse, and the market name of this device is expected to be Redmi K50 Gaming or Redmi K50 Gaming Pro. It is expected to be introduced in the global market as the POCO F4 GT, as well as the POCO F3 GT. According to the information we found in the IMEI database, this device will be sold under the POCO brand in the Global and Indian markets. When we look at these model numbers, we can clearly see 21121210C model number for China, 21121210I model number for India, 21121210G model number for Global market. Matisse is expected to be launch in 2021/12. However, the MIUI software of the devices and the number of devices manufacted are not yet suitable for the launch in December.
The meaning of the codename Matisse comes from the French artist Henri Matisse. Matisse is commonly regarded, along with Pablo Picasso, as one of the artists who best helped to define the revolutionary developments in the visual arts throughout the opening decades of the twentieth century, responsible for significant developments in painting and sculpture.
Redmi K50 Gaming / POCO F4 GT Expected Specifications
It is expected to come with a 120 Hz or 144 Hz OLED display. Two different sensors, Goodix and FPC, will be used as fingerprints. There are four back camera sensor information in Mi Code. And according to these sensor information, we can say that it will come with quad camera setup. However, as in other Xiaomi, Redmi and POCO devices, they can use a 2 MP depth sensor instead of an 8 MP telemacro camera in different regions. Redmi K50 Gaming will have a 64MP Sony Exmor IMX686 sensor as the main camera instead of the 64MP Omnivision’s OV64B sensor found in the Redmi K40 Gaming. It will also has from Omnivision’s 13 MP OV13B10 sensor as wide angle, Omnivision’s 8MP OV08856 sensor as telemacro, and finally GalaxyCore’s 2MP GC02M1 sensor as depth sensor. There is also a version of this device with a 108MP resolution Samsung ISOCELL HM2 sensor.
Redmi K50 Gaming Standard Edition (Rubens, L11A)
This device is the affordable device of the Redmi K50 Gaming series. The codename is taken from the German artist Peter Paul Rubens and its codename is rubens. The model number is 22041211AC when we look at short model number, it is L11A. We think Redmi K50 Gaming Standard Edition, will contain the differences with the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G and Redmi K40 Gaming Edition. Therefore, like the difference of between Dimensity 1200 and Dimensity 1100 was past K40 Gaming series, we expect MediaTek Dimensity 7000 to be used in this device instead of the MediaTek Dimesnity 9000 used in the Pro model. If you’re wondering why we’re comparing it with the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G, the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G would have been available in the Chinese market as the Redmi K40 Gaming Standard Edition. There are still trigger control codes exist in the software of the device. Also, the Redmi K40 Gaming Global was launched in the market under the name POCO F3 GT, while the Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G was launched under the name POCO X3 GT. So to summarize, the Gaming series is sold as the GT series in the global market. However, this device is not currently planned to be sold in the global or Indian market and will be exclusive to the Chinese market. So in 2022, the POCO X4 GT may not be introduced in the POCO X4 series.
As can be understood from the license date, it is expected to be introduced on 2022/04. The number of manufactured devices and the new MIUI adaptions is still in the developing phase indicate that it will not be introduced in 2021.
Redmi K50 Gaming Standard Edition Specifications
The main camera will have the same resolution camera as the pro model, but the sensors will be different. Redmi K50 Gaming Standard Edition will have a 64MP Samsung ISOCELL GW3 sensor. It will also come with triple camera setup.
Redmi K50 Gaming Series Launch Date
Redmi K50 Gaming Standard Edition (rubens) will be exclusive to China, but the POCO F4 GT (Redmi K50 Gaming) will be available in all regions except Japan. We expect both devices to be introduced in April 2022, like the K40 Gaming series. The license date of the Redmi K50 Gaming Standard Edition also increases our expectations in this direction. Redmi K50 Gaming (matisse)’s development with MIUI started on October 17, 2021, while the development of Redmi K50 Gaming Stabdard Edition (rubens) with MIUI began on November 10, 2021.
