Redmi K50i launch event is set for today in India. The upcoming K50i is more or less a successor to the K20. But since this phone has an “i” in its name, it focuses on one aspect more than the others. That aspect is the performance. While Redmi has not shared the official specifications of the phone, there have been several leaks and rumours confirming what the phone will come with. The Redmi K50i is expected to bring a MediaTek Dimensity 8100 chipset, since it is a rebranded Redmi Note 11T Pro, per the leaks.

Redmi K50i specifications
The Redmi K50i is likely a rebranded Redmi Note 11T Pro, which is why the specifications should be the same.

The phone could come running Android 12-based MIUI 13, but you can expect it to support advertisements. The Redmi K50i 5G may be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 8100 chipset with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. It could come featuring a 64-megapixel triple camera system on the back, while the selfie snapper may use a 16-megapixel sensor. The phone could come with a 5080mAh battery with support for 67W fast charging.
