Xiaomi’s phones are known for being value for money, and Redmi K50 Pro is no different. While it is a mid-range phone, it’s still relatively affordable when you peek at its specs. The phone comes at a starting price of about €430 which approximately converts to $474. It comes in four storage configurations. The two economical variants have 8 GB of RAM with 128 GB and 256 GB of internal storage. The more premium ones have 12 GB of RAM with 256 GB and 512 GB of ROM. The RAM and memory types used here are the latest LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1 respectively. 5G connections are supported on this phone beside 2G, 3G, and 4G. The phone can accommodate two Nano-SIM cards.
For colors, you get to choose between Green, Gray, Blue, and Black. If you want a matte back finish, you should opt for the Green and Gray variants. In case you are a fan of glossy finishes, you should pick the latter two. The phone has a glass back, plastic frame, and a glass front which is Gorilla Glass Victus protected. It also has IP53 certification for dust and splash resistance. Looking at the specs, it’s safe to say that Xiaomi Redmi K50 Pro has a solid build quality. Coming to the dimensions, the phone measures 6.42 by 3.00 by 0.33 inches and has a manageable weight of 201 grams.
The device’s display quality and multimedia experience are amazing. It has a 6.67-inch 2K OLED screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The phone has an impressive screen-to-body ratio and PPI density of 86.4% and 526 respectively, too. What’s equally impressive is that the phone has support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+. While the device has stereo speakers and high-resolution audio, it misses out on a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Xiaomi Redmi K50 Pro can also go up to 1200 nits of brightness, to ensure ample visibility outdoors. The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 CPU delivers top-notch overall performance, which is expected. The Mali-G710 MC10 GPU takes care of the gaming performance.
The presence of stainless steel vapor chamber cooling system certainly improves the experience. On the software side of things, the device runs Android 12 with MIUI 13 on top. It will get major Android operating system updates for two years and security one for an additional year. When it comes to sensors, the phone has an accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, color spectrum, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Coming to cameras, their overall performance is decent, while the primary camera performs incredibly.
It has a 108 MP wide-angle camera with OIS (optical image stabilization), 8 MP ultrawide, and 2 MP macro camera, on the rear. On the front, the device has a 20 MP wide-angle camera for taking selfies and attending video calls. In addition to the usual camera features, Xiaomi Redmi K50 Pro has a Dual-LED dual-tone flash and gyro-EIS. The rear camera setup can record videos in 1080p. In comparison, the selfie camera can do so up to 4K. Communication options include dual-band Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Hotspot, Bluetooth 5.3, and GPS.
The device also has USB Type-C 2.0, USB On-The-Go, NFC, and the quite uncommon Infrared Port. It misses out on FM Radio, but so do most mid-range phones. The battery is one department where the phone excels. It sports a 5000 mAh Li-Po non-removable battery that provides backup for two days on average use, too. The phone supports 120W fast charging, which can charge it from 0 to 100% in just 19 minutes. It’s almost impossible to find a phone that charges quicker than Xiaomi Redmi K50 Pro.
