Xiaomiui is well-known for leaking unique information about new Xiaomi phones and MIUI updates. They hinted at forthcoming Redmi K50 and Xiaomi 12 models last week, and now they have further information on a probable K50 Gaming Edition.
In fact, the outlet has revealed information about two potential Redmi phones called Matisse and Rubens. The MIUI code obtained in the IMEI database was used to disclose their specifications.
The Matisse model will include three regional variants, including China, India, and a global variant, according to the source. The IMEI database revealed all of their model numbers.
As usual, it will bear the Redmi branding in China and the Poco label in the rest of the world. It is scheduled to be released in China in December of this year, with global and Indian models following in the next months.
However, Xiaomiui claims that the firm may not be able to meet the deadline because the handset’s software is still in development.
In terms of hardware, the phone will be powered by MediaTek’s latest flagship processor, the 4nm Dimensity 9000. It will have either a 120Hz or 144Hz OLED display.
The primary sensor will be a 64MP Sony IMX686 sensor, along with a 13MP ultrawide device, an 8MP telemacro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. There will also be a model with a 108MP primary camera.
This phone is scheduled to be released in China as the Redmi K50 Gaming Edition and in the worldwide market as the Poco F4 GT.
Rubens is reported to be a China-only model that will, predictably, bear the Redmi logo. It will most likely be the Redmi K50 Gaming Standard Edition. According to Xiaomiui, it will use the unreleased Dimensity 7000 SoC, which is a scaled-down version of the flagship Dimensity 9000 chip.
It will most likely feature the same characteristics as the K50 Gaming Edition, but with a different chipset.
Its model number suggests that it will be available in April 2022.
