Introducing Redmi K50 Gaming Edition, the new Xiaomi gaming phone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor

News unit : Company Xiaomi on Wednesday, February 16, 2022 (27 February 1400) during an event in China, a new gaming phone called Redmi K50 Gaming unveiled, which according to its name is a successor to Redmi K40 Gaming. Launched in April 2021, the Redmi K40 Gaming apart from the obvious differences with the Redmi K40 Pro and +Redmi K40 Pro In terms of processing, battery and charging capacity, it is considered a gaming phone and the side trigger buttons emphasize this point. Redmi K50 Gaming has continued this procedure and by keeping many key elements constant, it has made changes in the cooling system, battery and charger, communication and of course the processor.

Redmi K50 Gaming in the form of K40 Gaming is not far from last year and at a glance it is easy to say that these two belong to the same family. The back and top of the phone are still made of two flat surfaces without bending, and their side buttons and slide triggers do not show any change in appearance. The design of the embossed lines on the back of the phone is accompanied by changes compared to the K40, and the oval shape of the camera area is now rectangular. K50 Gaming is presented in three colors, black, blue and silver, and the special and limited edition of the device, which was made in collaboration with the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One team, is also gray with the Mercedes logo.

Redmi K50 Gaming from 8.5× dimensions It uses 76.7 x 162.5 mm, which has not seen a big change compared to K40 Gaming with dimensions of 8.3 x 76.9 x 161.9 mm. The weight of this model is 210 grams, despite the drop of 365 mAh of battery capacity, it is still 5 grams heavier than the K40 Gaming, the reason of which should be attributed above all to the internal changes of the device, especially the new cooling system.

The screen of the phone apparently Unchanged from the past is the same 6.67-inch 10-bit OLED as before, which uses a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and has a contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1, a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a maximum touch speed of 480 Hz. This panel, which received the A+ quality mark from the DisplayMate reference, has a PWM dimming system with a frequency of 1,920 Hz and supports the DCI-P3 color range and the display of HDR10 and HDR10+ content. A new note about this page, changing its protective cover from Gorilla Glass 5 in the previous generation to Goriila Glass Victus, according to Sande, is 1.5 times more resistant to falling and 2 times more resistant to scratches.


Top of the screen In the central punch hole of this part, there is a 20 megapixel selfie camera with Sony IMX596 sensor, which supports 1080p video recording with 30 or 60 frames per second and 720/120fps slow motion. This camera apparently lacks autofocus.

On the right side of the phone, just like the K40 Gaming (which was later released under the name Poco F3 GT), two physical buttons for games called shoulder keys are used. They are placed inside the phone body before use, but during the game, different tasks can be assigned to them, thus experiencing a more advanced gaming scenario. According to Xiaomi, these buttons use elastic silicone structure and 8 magnets for smooth opening and closing. which apparently provide a better experience than the previous generation.

In the back part of the phone, at first glance, the same three cameras as before are used, i.e. 64 megapixel main, 8 megapixel ultrawide and 2 megapixel macro, but at least in the case of the main camera, the condition It is different and we face a completely more advanced example.

64 megapixel camera K50 Gaming It uses a 1/1.73-inch Sony IMX686 sensor, which is better than the 1/2-inch sensor of the 64-megapixel camera. “Xiaomi Redmi K40 Gaming”>K40 Gaming is much bigger and its 1.6 micron pixels (after combining four adjacent pixels to form one larger pixel) also capture more light (at least on paper) than the 1.4 micron cells of the previous model. ) attract. The lens in front of this sensor has also changed and is now a more advanced 6-stage model. The main camera of K50 Gaming supports 4K video resolution at 60 frames per second, which is not the case in its previous counterpart, and by reducing the resolution to 1080p, you can also shoot videos at 30, 60 or 120 frames per second. The highest slow motion capture rate of this camera is 720p with 960 frames per second. The 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera with a 120-degree field of view and the 2-megapixel macro camera of this phone are apparently not much different than before.

Processing in this model as expected with advanced 4nm chipset Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is done from a core Cortex-X2 at 3 GHz, 3 cores 2.5 GHz Cortex-A710 and 1.8 GHz quad-core

One of the important points in the structure of gaming phones is how to remove excessive heat from the device while playing heavy graphic games, which otherwise affects the quality The processing of the phone and as a result the performance of the players leaves a significant negative impact. For this purpose, K50 Gaming uses a new vapor chamber (VC) cooling system, which, unlike the usual procedure, is not concentrated in only one point, and in a dual structure, apart from the processor of the device, it also covers the other point of heat generation, i.e. the battery charging chip.

In this structure, the larger VC cooling system that covers the upper part of the phone has an area of ​​4,015 square mm, and the part related to battery charging has an area of ​​845 square mm, the cooling surface below The coverage of this system brings it to a total of 4,860 square millimeters.

The positive performance of K50 Gaming in this section is not only limited to the items mentioned above and also shows new innovations in the field of materials used. These include a 20% improvement in the thermal conductivity of the signal receiving area, a 20% improvement in heat transfer in the three-dimensional graphite sheet on the back, an improvement in the thermal performance of the front graphite sheet (under the screen) with an area of ​​6,904 square millimeters, and the use of a copper radiator on the processor. (instead of the usual thermal gels) pointed out that the latter offers up to 3.5 times higher thermal conductivity.

The battery capacity of the K50 Gaming has decreased by 365 mAh compared to the K40 Gaming, from 5,065 mAh to 4,700 mAh. Of course, the lower capacity of this battery is fully compensated by its faster charger, and the place of the previous model’s 67-watt charger is now filled by a 120-watt lightning-fast charger. This charge called Xiaomi only needs 17 minutes to fill two separate battery cells and during The game also maintains its high speed to a large extent. This charger in the special version of K50 Gaming with the Mercedes logo is a more advanced type of GaN, which has the most effect on the volume and size of the charger.

JBL-tuned dual speakers, vibration motor based on Xiaomi CyberEngine technology, Wi-Fi 6e Bluetooth 5.2, dual-frequency satellite routers and NFC are other notable features of this phone.

Xiaomi Redmi K50 Gaming with operating system Android 12 and the MIUI 13 user interface have been released to the Chinese market since February 18 (29 February 1400) and still about the time There is no information about its delivery to international markets and its global price. The basic version of this phone with 8GB/128GB memory is offered to the Chinese market at a price of 3,299 yuan (at the current exchange rate of nearly 521 US dollars), and for the two more advanced versions with 12GB/128GB and 12GB/256GB memory, you need to pay 3,599 and 3,599, respectively. It cost 3,899 yuan ($568 and $615, respectively).

Limited and limited Mercedes version of this model, which is offered in only one 12GB/256GB memory, costs 4,199 yuan ($663).
