In about 24 hours from now, Xiaomi and it Redmi brand will be unveiling the K60-series. Xiaomi has been dishing out key specifications on these upcoming smartphones since the past few days, and today, the company has officially announced the primary sensor on the K60 Pro model.
As per the teaser, the upcoming Redmi K60 will mount the same Sony IMX800 image sensor found on the rear of the Xiaomi 13 smartphone. Aside the Xiaomi 13, the IMX800 is the same senor used on the recently announced Honor 70.
It is a 54-megapixel main shooter, featuring PDAF, 1/1.49-Inch sensor size and an f/1.9 aperture. The sensor will be merged with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), along with Xiaomi’s self developed image sensor version 2.0.
As per earlier teasers, the Pro model in the K60 series will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 flagship processor. This is the same CPU used on the Xiaomi 13, 13 Pro and even the recently announced iQOO 11-series.
Rumor claims that Xiaomi is aiming to disrupt the sales of the iQOO 11 in China with the K60 Pro version, due to it aggressive pricing. Sadly, exactly what these aggressive price will be is yet to be known.
The Nubia Z50 is currently the most affordable Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 powered smartphone, not even the iQOO 11. But whether the Redmi K60 Pro will be price lower than the $430 starting price on the Nubia Z50 is also not confirmed. But since the K60-series will go official on the 27th of December, which is just a day from today, it is best we wait and see.
