Qualcomm is expected to announce the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 flagship chip by the end of this month. Speculations are rife that the Xiaomi 14 series could be the first phones to come equipped with the SD8G3 chip. It is speculated that the Redmi K70 Pro will also feature the same chip. Rumors surrounding the Redmi K70 series have claimed that it will debut in December of this year, as the Redmi K60 lineup was announced in December 2022. A recent Weibo post by a Chinese leaker reveals that the K70 lineup will debut earlier than expected.
According to a reliable tipster, the Redmi is gearing up for a November launch for the Redmi K70 series. The tipster added that the Snapdragon mobile platform will power the entire lineup. He added that the lineup has an optimized primary camera, and the good news is that there won’t be any price hikes for the models with extra-large storage capacities. The blogger also hinted at the potential use of a metal middle frame and the inclusion of a flat display that offers 2K resolution.
The IMEI database reveals specific device models for the series: Redmi K70 (model 2311DRK48), K70e (model 23117RK66C), and K70 Pro (model 23113RKC6C). It is speculated that the Redmi K70 will have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, whereas the Pro will feature the newer Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. It is unclear whether the Redmi K70e will have the rumored Dimensity 8300 chip or a Snapdragon chip.
Additionally, leakers have hinted that the Redmi K70 series will eliminate the plastic frame and feature incredibly slim bezels, promising an impressive screen-to-body ratio. The lineup is expected to pack large batteries and offer up to 120W fast charging.
