Aside from the Redmi K70E (that’s expected to debut globally as the POCO X6 Pro), Xiaomi also announced the standard Redmi K70 and its Pro version in China. We’re not sure about their possible global availability (and if they will launch as POCO devices), but both phones are interesting on paper.
Common features between the Redmi K70 and K70 Pro include a 6.67-inch 120hz OLED display with a 2K resolution, 5000mAh battery with support for 120w charging, a new 50-megapixel 1/1.55″ main camera with OIS, P2 charging and G1 battery management chips. and a 16-megapixel selfie shooter.
The main difference between the two phones is the rear camera setup and processor. The standard Redmi K70 settles for a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor that’s paired with up to 16GB RAM and 1TB storage while accompanying the 50-megapixel main camera is an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 2-megapixel macro camera.
The Pro model, on the other hand, upgrades to a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 with an option for as much as 24GB RAM. It also has a better rear camera setup with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide and a 50-megapixel telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom.
The Redmi K70 Pro also gets a flashy Lamborghini edition that has Lamborghini branding, a more angular camera module design, and yellow or green color options that take inspiration from the Italian carmaker’s Essenza SCV12.
The Redmi K70 starts at CNY 2499(~Php 20k) for the 12GB/256GB model, while the Pro version starts at CNY 3299(~Php 26k) for the same variant. The standard K70 tops out at 16GB/1TB for CNY 3399(~Php 27k), while the Pro version maxes out at 24GB/1TB at CNY 4399(~Php 35k). There’s no official pricing yet for the Lamborghini edition, but expect it to have a higher price tag than the standard 24GB/1TB version of the Redmi K70 Pro.
