Xiaomi has its own Surge P1 charging chip, and it’s implemented in the Redmi K60 Pro. The chip takes care of the power distribution for the 5,000mAh camera and makes sure the 120W fast charge protects the phone as it fills it from 0-100% in 19 minutes.

Redmi K60E

The Redmi K60E is the first flagship K series phone with the letter E at the end. Xiaomi hasn’t revealed the reasoning behind the letter, but it’s definitely an efficient smartphone.

Redmi kept its premium status with the Mediatek chipset and brought the 6.67-inch AMOLED with 120Hz refresh rate and 1440p resolution, seen in the other two Redmi K60 phones.

Another downgrade for this phone is storage – instead of UFS 4.0, all storage options are UFS 3.1, while RAM has been downgraded slightly from LPDDR5X to LPPDR5.
