Rumor: Redmi K60 will feature Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, Pro gets 8+ Gen 1 instead
There have been several leaks regarding the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi K60 series, but now everything is starting to fall into place. A report of My Drivers suggests that the new series will be unveiled in January, probably before the Chinese New Year (January 22).
The Xiaomi Redmi K60 will feature the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. It is also expected to have a QHD+ 120Hz display and 67W fast wired charging and for the first time on a K-phone there will be wireless charging. of 30 W. On its back, we should see a 64MP main camera plus an 8MP ultrawide module and a 2MP macro camera. On the front, a 16MP selfie camera.
Then there’s the so-called Redmi K60 Pro, which you’ll have to settle for with the old but still efficient Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. We don’t know why the Pro will have a slower chipset, it’s possible the reports have flipped things around, so wait until you see the first round of benchmarks. Either way, the Pro is expected to have a 120Hz QHD+ display.

At the bottom of the scale will be the Redmi K60E – this model is expected to be powered by either the Snapdragon 870 or the upcoming Dimensity 8200. Early benchmark results have surfaced, confirming the Snapdragon 870 version. The K60E model is expected to have a 48MP main camera (with OIS), based on what we’ve heard so far. This one will also arrive with older software – Android 12 and MIUI 13. The other two will run Android 13 and MIUI 14.
PS. Based on the model names, it looks like the Poco F5 will be based on the Redmi K60 Pro – both are dubbed “Mondrian”. The K60 is “Socrates” and the K60E is “Rembrandt”.
