How long will the Redmi K50 series be supported?

Considering Redmi still supports the Redmi K40 series, with the Redmi K30 series, and both devices from the Redmi K30/K40 series is still receiving Android updates, but neither series’ base model device is widely available at the moment, or even sold in major retailers, so the Redmi K50 series should be supported for a long while when it comes to software, but not long when it comes to support from Redmi, or Xiaomi. The device will receive updates, but won’t be sold in many retailers after a while. So if you’re looking for a device to rival Apple’s software support, the Redmi K50 series update life is probably not for you, but they are still amazing phones in their own rights.
