The price of the model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage is Rs. 28,999.

In addition to that, there is a 2,500-Rs. exchange incentive. Customers who shop offline have the option of selecting the Mi Smart Speaker in place of the bank offer.

Redmi K50i Design

The Redmi K50i has a straightforward appearance, in contrast to its more attractive forerunner, the Redmi K50, which had a novel dual-tone design and a nifty pop-up camera. Rather than giving anything new, the K-series now offers the same old thing. Instead of the curved glass rear seen in the Redmi K20 series, the Redmi K50i has a plastic black finish with a glossy appearance. Even though it weighs 200 grams, the phone nevertheless has a pleasant hand-feeling.

The smartphone boasts flat sides, which have grown popular since Apple debuted flat sides on its newest iPhones. The front of the device has a big display with a notch in the middle. You won’t have to worry about being distracted when you’re watching because of the small bezels on the sides. The gadget also has an LED flash in addition to its triple camera configuration that is housed in a rectangular module. The remainder of the rear is unadorned, and the only identifying feature is the Redmi logo in the lower left-hand corner.

The slot for the SIM card, the microphone, the port for the USB Type-C cable, and the loudspeaker grille are all located at the bottom of the device. On the right side of the phone, you’ll find a volume rocker and a power button with an integrated fingerprint sensor. An IR sensor, a speaker grille, and a 3.5mm audio connector are all located on the device’s top.

Redmi K50i Display

The screen of the Redmi K50i is 6.6 inches and has a resolution of Full HD+. The Redmi K50i display has got 144Hz refresh rate. You have the option of choosing between Automatic, 60Hz, 90Hz, and 144Hz for the refresh rate, even though the device already has a 144Hz refresh rate. Enjoying all of your favourite programmes and movies will seem like a real pleasure thanks to the enormous display size.

The display has support for HDR10 and Dolby Vision, both of which improve the colours and deliver output that is clear and bright respectively. However, it is unfortunate that the Redmi K50i does not have an AMOLED screen like the one found in the Redmi K20 Pro. Instead, the firm has opted to utilise an LCD panel for the display.

Redmi K50i Performance

The Redmi K50i comes with a processor manufactured by MediaTek called the Dimensity 8100, as well as up to 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and the device features 256GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage. The chipset has been manufactured using a 5nm technology and is highly powerful. The smartphone can run demanding games without a hitch and efficiently handles everything else you can pitch at it. There is a system known as Liquid Cooling 2.0, which features a vapour cooling chamber for thermal management.

The Redmi K50i comes preinstalled with Android 12 and the latest version of the company’s MIUI 13 skin on top of it. If you have ever used a device manufactured by Xiaomi, you are probably aware of the highly customised skin known as MIUI that is provided by the firm.

Redmi K50i Camera

On the rear of the Redmi K50i is a triple camera configuration that includes the main camera with 64 megapixels, an ultra-wide-angle camera with 8 megapixels, and a macro sensor with 2 megapixels. On the Redmi K50i, you may capture movies at resolutions of up to 4K at 30 frames per second. A selfie camera with 16 megapixels is built into the device’s front face. The highest video resolution can be recorded in 1080p at 30 frames per second.

The camera on the Redmi K50i comes with a variety of different modes, including cloning, vlogging, and others. However, don’t anticipate the gadget to produce photographs on par with those produced by a DSLR camera since its camera is not its strong feature. Aside from that, it’s comparable to other Redmi and Xiaomi cameras in terms of quality and value for money.

Redmi K50i Battery

In terms of its battery capacity, the Redmi K50i is equipped with a massive 5,080 mAh battery that is compatible with 67W quick charging. The battery life of the smartphone is sufficient to endure throughout the day. The time required to charge the smartphone from empty to 50 per cent capacity is 15 minutes, and the full charge takes 46 minutes.

Redmi K50i Verdict

Redmi K50i is not without exceptions. However, this does not mean that it is a poor-quality smartphone. It has a rapid charging feature, a headphone port for those who choose to use one, and a decent display and battery life for its price point. The performance is extremely excellent, particularly when compared to other available alternatives. However, the camera doesn’t quite live up to expectations. The design is not very memorable either.
