In its major announcement in China that has the Mix Fold 3 as the highlight, Xiaomi has unveiled the third member of the Redmi K60 series with the Ultra variant. We know that the vanilla Redmi K60 eventually became the POCO F5 Pro for global markets, and the Redmi K60 Ultra is long-rumored to be known as the upcoming Xiaomi 13T for global markets.
One of the main highlights of the K60 Ultra is its use of a Dimensity 9200+ processor, which is a flagship-grade chip from MediaTek that can go head-to-head with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and 8+ Gen 1–the latter being commonly used on budget flagship devices. Making its configuration options incredible–at least in China–is that you can have the K60 Ultra with as much as 24GB LPDDR5 RAM, which is the most you can get for a non-gaming phone. Storage is just as generous, as you can get up to 1TB of UFS 3.1 storage.
As a flagship-caliber device, the K60 Ultra comes with a 144hz OLED display with a 1.5K resolution, 2880Hz PWM dimming, and a dedicated PixelWorks X7 chip for driving the display. The punch-hole has a 20-megapixel selfie camera, while the display also houses the in-display fingerprint scanner.
It has a triple rear camera setup that consists of a 50-megapixel main camera with OIS, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor, along with a 5000mAh battery with 120w charging and Xiaomi’s Surge P1 and G1 chips for power management. You also get an IP68 rating as well, which is a rare feature for a Redmi device.
The Redmi K60 Ultra starts at CNY 2599(~Php 21k) for the 12GB/256GB variant, while the top-end 24GB/1TB variant is priced at CNY 3599(~Php 29k).
