The Redmi K50 series recently went on sale to great acclaim. Even Lu Weibing, general manager of the Redmi, did not expect the Redmi K50 to be so popular. Can a phone that sells for 2399 yuan challenge the iPhone 13 Pro Max?
The Redmi K50 Standard Edition is similar to the Redmi K50 Pro in terms of design, but it has differences in hardware. The Redmi K50 Standard Edition includes the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 chipset, while the Pro model is equipped with MediaTek Dimensity 9000. The Dimensity 8100, which is manufactured with TSMC’s 5nm manufacturing technology, is extremely efficient and comparable to Qualcomm Snapdragon 888.
The Redmi K50 Standard Edition has one good feature over the Redmi K50 Pro: the battery has a capacity of 5500 mAh instead of the 5000 mAh battery of the K50 Pro. The large battery with a capacity of 5500mAh ensures long usage times. In fact, the battery of the Redmi K50 Standard Edition is so good that you can compare it with the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Redmi K50 series, Redmi’s best series ever, can offer longer usage time than the iPhone 13 Pro Max, according to official tests. The Redmi K50 and the iPhone 13 Pro Max, which were used for the test, started testing at the same time. At the end of the test, the Redmi K50 Pro has a capacity of 9%, while the iPhone 13 Pro Max has 8%. Excellent results!
In addition to the Redmi K50’s superior battery performance, the fast charging technology should not be forgotten. The Redmi K50’s 67W fast charging technology and the Redmi K50 Pro’s incredible 120W ultra fast charging technology do a great job charging the battery to 100% in 19 minutes.
