Redmi K50 renders leak: Could this be the Poco F4?

The Redmi K40 launched as the Poco F3 in global markets. Could the same happen with the K50?

TL;DR
  • Purported Redmi K50 renders have emerged online.
  • The phone looks similar to the claimed Redmi K50 Pro renders leaked earlier this week.
  • We’re guessing that this could be the Poco F4 in global markets.

We got our first apparent glimpse at the Redmi K50 Pro yesterday thanks to leaked renders, and it looks like the standard Redmi K50 wasn’t far behind.

Veteran leaker Steve ‘OnLeaks‘ Hemmerstoffer and Bestopedia have posted renders and a 360-degree video showing the purported Redmi K50. Hemmerstoffer later posted the dimensions, noting that it measures in at 163.30 x 76.0 x 8.1mm (and 10.4mm including the camera bump). Check out a couple of images below.

We see a similar two-step rear camera bump compared to the Redmi K50 Pro, but this model does differ by enclosing all the cameras in a circular element. Switch to the front of the device and we can see a center-mounted punch-hole cutout and a flat display that’s said to be 6.6-inches in size.

In terms of I/O, the phone has a USB-C port at the bottom, an IR blaster at the top, and a power button and volume rocker on the right. The power button also looks like it could double up as a fingerprint scanner.

There’s no word on specs, although the outlet speculates that it could gain a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, a 5,000mAh battery, and 120W charging.

For what it’s worth, last year’s Redmi K40 used the Snapdragon 870 SoC and offered a 4,520mAh battery with 33W charging. So we wouldn’t be surprised if Redmi sticks to the Snapdragon 888 or another chipset instead.

Speaking of the K40, this phone became the Poco F3 when it launched outside global markets last year. It’s, therefore, possible in theory that the K50 could become the Poco F4 when it eventually arrives in Europe, India, and other markets.

What do you think of the leaked Redmi K50 design?
