Xiaomi is following the Redmi K50 Pro and Redmi K50 Gaming edition with an even higher-specced model called the Redmi K50 Ultra in China. The “ultra” K50 packs a 12-bit 1.5K resolution display, Qualcomm’s top-shelf Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, 108MP triple rear cameras, and whopping 120W fast charging support. In typical Redmi fashion, this one won’t cost you a bomb either. The Redmi K50 Ultra starts at just CNY 2,999 which roughly translates to Rs 35,500.
