redmi: Redmi K50 Ultra may feature Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ chipset

Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi launched the K50 series in the country in March. The Redmi K50 series included two smartphones — the Redmi K50 and the Redmi K50 Pro. The Chinese smartphone maker is now set to expand its K50 lineup with a new Ultra variant which is under development, according to a report by GSMArena. Xiaomi is likely to unveil the Redmi K50 Ultra smartphone in the second half of the year — anytime between July to December.
This handset is expected to feature a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ chipset. However, the company has not confirmed the details of this upcoming device. If the rumours are true, the upcoming device will become the most premium variant in the series. The Redmi K50 Ultra will also be the first phone in the lineup to come powered by a Qualcomm processor for the base model. The Pro variant features MediaTek chipsets.
