Official Redmi K50 Pro, K50 and K40S: the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 arrives

Redmi K40s, K50 and K50 Pro are official in China: a triptych of high-end smartphones with remarkable performance and an excellent quality / price ratio. The launch is especially interesting because, thanks to the K50 Pro, finally we see the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 coming on the market: and given the excellent scores in the benchmarks leaked so far it will be interesting to understand in reality what it will be capable of. In any case, here are the details of all three devices:

REDMI K50 PRO



The smartphone shares a good part of the technical data sheet and the aesthetics of the K50 Gaming, which was the forerunner of the K50 family, but is more prestigious and powerful in several areas. Including the SoC – the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 is the only 4nm flagship chip made by TSMC (the others are all Samsung), and as a pure benchmark it seems clearly ahead of its competitors – it even approaches the levels of Apple A15 Bionic of the iPhone 13.
