Here’s what we know about the Redmi K50 Gaming series phone so far

We previously reported on the Xiaomi 12 and Redmi K50 series of phones’ supposed model numbers. A few days later, new information concerning two of those devices became available. Let’s have a look at the features of these phones.

Xiaomiui has revealed the codenames, Matisse and Rubens, for two forthcoming Xiaomi devices. The model numbers for these devices are L10 and L11A, respectively. The MIUI code and the IMEI database both provide information about the couple.

Matisse Xiaomi (L10)

There will be three regional varieties of the Xiaomi Matisse: China, Global, and India. The model numbers 21121210C, 21121210G, and 21121210I in the IMEI database support this.

It will be offered under the Redmi name in China, but under the POCO brand in other areas. Because the first four digits of Xioami device model numbers reflect the release year and month, this phone could be released in December 2012.

However, Xiaomiui claims that because the handset’s software is still in development, Xiaomi may not be able to ship it on time.

In terms of specifications, the smartphone is claimed to be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC, which was recently announced. It’ll sport a 120Hz or 144Hz OLED display, as well as a mix of Goodix and FPC in-screen fingerprint sensors.

It will have quad cameras on the back for photography and videography. A 64MP Sony IMX686 primary sensor, a 13MP OmniVision OV13B10 ultra-wide sensor, an 8MP OmniVision OV08856 telemacro sensor, and a 2MP GalaxyCore GC02M1 depth sensor will make up the configuration. This phone is also available with a 108MP Samsung ISOCELL HM2 primary camera.

Finally, when it comes to nomenclature, the device is believed to be known in China as the Redmi K50 Gaming or Redmi K50 Gaming Pro, and in other markets as the POCO F4 GT.

Rubens Xiaomi (L11A)

There is presently only a ‘China’ variation of the Xiaomi Rubens with the model number 22041211AC. The smartphone will be branded Redmi in its home nation, which is unsurprising.

The Redmi Note 10 Pro 5G and Redmi K40 Gaming are both powered by the same Dimensity 1100 and Dimensity 1200 chipsets. Similarly, Xiaomi Rubens is reported to be powered by the unreleased Dimensity 7000 processor, which is rumored to be a scaled-down version of the Dimensity 9000 chip slated to power Xiaomi Matisse.

Unfortunately, little is known about this device other than the fact that it will have three rear cameras. A 64MP Samsung ISOCELL GW3 main sensor will be used in the arrangement.

The smartphone is expected to be released in April 2022, according to its model number.
