By the end of this month or in December, Xiaomi is expected to unveil its next flagship series, Xiaomi 13, as the company’s next flagship model. There is also some good news on the way for its sub-brand Redmi as well. The company is said to be working on a new smartphone series called Redmi K60, which is expected to include at least three smartphones when released quite soon. Redmi announced today that the vanilla Redmi K60 has been certified by China’s 3C, which might hint at an imminent launch date for the device. In order to better understand the situation, let’s take a closer look at it.
The Redmi smartphone with the model number 23013RK75C, which was first spotted by Anvin (Twitter @ZionsAnvin), has appeared on the 3C certification site for China bearing the model number 23013RK75C. The handset is believed to be the vanilla Redmi K60, which was released earlier in the year. Furthermore, an additional item in the listing suggests that this alleged handset has the capability to support fast charging at a rate of 67W.
According to the reports, it is expected that the Redmi K60 series will include several models in its line-up, including models like the Redmi K60, K60 Pro, and K60 Gaming. Depending on the specifications of the model, the Redmi K60 may be powered by a Dimensity 8200 processor.
A flat AMOLED display with a punch-hole design and a Sony IMX686 64-megapixel main camera are rumored to be the main features of the handset. This model could have a battery capacity of 5,500mAh and fast charging capabilities of 67W.
In contrast, the K60 Pro, which is expected to be released in the near future, will likely come with an improved chipset, a further improved camera setup, and a particularly fast charging feature. The K60 gaming notebook would be able to offer a 2K-resolution AMOLED touchscreen, as opposed to the K30 gaming notebook.
It has not yet been confirmed whether the company will release any details regarding the upcoming series. There is a rumor, however, that it will launch in China sometime during the first quarter of 2023. POCO is expected to rebrand some of its K60 series devices worldwide as POCO devices in the coming years.
