Xiaomi might be gearing up to bring back the Redmi K series to the Indian market. The Chinese smartphone maker is expected to launch the Redmi K50i 5G in India soon.
According to industry insider Ishan Agarwal, the Redmi K50i India launch is set to take place soon, suggesting the phone could arrive as early as next month.
If the report is accurate, then the Redmi K series will be making its comeback in India soon. The last Redmi phone in its K series to debut in India was the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro. However, both Redmi K30 and K40 branded smartphones never reached Indian shores.
Xiaomi has also launched three smartphones in the Redmi K50 series in China, including the Redmi K50, Redmi K50 Pro, and Redmi K50 Gaming Edition. However, the image shared by Agarwal looks nothing like any of the three phones. The report notes that the Redmi K50i will be a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 11T Pro, which was unveiled in China last month.
