Xiaomi is reportedly working on a Redmi smartphone that is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 7000 SoC, which has yet to be announced. Redmi CEO Lu Weibing has announced the arrival of a new phone that runs on this chipset. MediaTek recently announced the Dimensity 9000 SoC, but it’s also rumored to be introducing the Dimensity 7000 SoC. While previous reports claim that the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition will be the handset powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 7000 SoC, a new leak suggests otherwise.

Weibing went to Weibo to tease a Redmi phone with the MediaTek Dimensity 7000 SoC. He didn’t mention the phone’s name in his post, and his teaser was also in the form of an open-ended question for Redmi followers. In any case, a leak in the past suggests that Xiaomi is working on the Redmi K50 Gaming Standard Edition, which may be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 7000 SoC, and Weibing could speak of it. There is no real clarity on the matter, so this information should be viewed with a pinch of salt.

Tipster Digital Chat Station leaked the specifications of the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition separately. The tipster claims that the phone may be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC and likely contains a 5,000 mAh battery. The phone is equipped with a fingerprint sensor under the screen and houses a 64 megapixel main camera module. It will likely have a punch display as well.

Earlier reports suggested that the Redmi K50 Gaming Pro Edition might debut with the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC, while the Redmi K50 Gaming Standard Edition might debut with the MediaTek Dimensity 7000 SoC. Anyway, future leaks and teasers from Xiaomi should provide some clarity in the future.

The Redmi K50 gaming series is set to debut as the successor to the Redmi K40 series and is expected to hit the market in April 2022.
