Beijing, China – December 13, 2022 – Redmi K Series has been a reflection of Xiaomi’s Global Market. Every time a part of Redmi K was released, here we are wondering whether the tech giant is going to rebrand it as POCO or Mi T Series. While the other Redmi K phones are for casual individuals, Redmi K5 Gaming phones are labeled as e-sports phones by Xiaomi. It caters to every individual’s needs in terms of gaming. They even added buttons-like Xbox and PlayStation on the side. But now, Xiaomi’s Vice President, Lu Weibing has posted on Weibo that the Redmi K Gaming will be discontinued and we can assume that the Redmi K60 Gaming Edition is not going to happen.
Based on photos that were leaked, the Redmi K60 Series has been in production. The phone lineup will include a Redmi K60E that houses a confirmed Dimensity 8200 processor, a chip designed for gaming – a base version, Redmi K60 that houses Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor – and a Redmi K60 Pro with Qualcomm’s most powerful processor, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
We speculate that Redmi was forced to remove the gaming edition since most of the time, the iteration has been rivaling the pro model or it’s being overlooked due to its identical specs with other phones in the same lineup.
