While Xiaomi unveiled the Redmi K70 series in China yesterday, the K70E is the more interesting model despite not using a Snapdragon 8-series chip. There’s already confirmation through a listing in Thailand that the Redmi K70E will be known as the POCO X6 Pro globally.
Comparing it to other listings, the Indian version carries the code 2311DRK48I, while the Redmi K70E carries the code 2311DRK48C. While Xiaomi may make a few changes to the POCO X6 Pro, the K70E should be a good indicator of what to expect with the next POCO X-series device.
Powering the K70E is a Dimensity 8300-Ultra processor that’s paired with up to 16GB RAM and up to 1TB storage, and keeping thermal stable is a 5000mm2 vapor chamber.
Those slim bezels on the K70E feature a 6.7-inch 120hz AMOLED panel with a 1220×2712 resolution, 12-bit color, and 1800nits maximum brightness. It has a larger-than-usual 5500mAh battery, and comes with 90w wired charging that can top-up the battery in around 34 minutes. a P2 chip handles fast charging, while the G1 chip manages battery life.
The K70E’s cameras are typical of what you expect on a 2024 mid-range phone: 64-megapixel main camera with OIS, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, and 2-megapixel macro camera. Selfies are taken care of by a 16-megapixel shooter that can shoot Full HD video at 60FPS.
The K70E starts at CNY 2000(~Php 16k) for the 12GB/256GB model, with the 16GB/1TB version priced at CNY 2600 (~Php 21k). While the POCO X6 Pro is expected to top out storage at 512GB, there’s still a possibility for a 1TB variant.
