Lu Weibing (general manager of Redmi) recently announced that Redmi will launch a new Redmi K50 Series smartphone with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Generation 1 SoC. The device was announced before it was even released.
Redmi K50S Pro will be the official name of the new smartphone. According to rumors. Digital Chat Station claims that the phone will have a larger display, better cameras, a bigger battery, faster charging, and a faster processor. The insider also confirms that the phone has a telephoto lens. Do not rely on zooms of 5x and 10x. It will most likely be a regular module, with magnifications of 2x and 3x.
Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition was China’s last Redmi phone to have an optical zoom camera. It had an 8MP telephoto lens, 3x zoom, and OIS. Redmi K20 Pro and Redmi K20 Pro both had 8MP modules with 2x zoom.

Redmi K series was supposed to have the same camera configuration. However, it didn’t happen. Redmi K30, Redmi K30 5G had useless 2MP macro sensors. Redmi K30 Pro was the first to feature Xiaomi’s 5-megapixel autofocus macro camera. This camera was later used in the Redmi K40 series (except Redmi K40 gaming edition), but the Redmi K50 series discarded it this year in favor of a useless macro camera (2MP).
Redmi K50S Pro will be available in international markets as Xiaomi 12T Pro.
