Redmi K80 Series: Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 Launch Timing Leaked

Earlier this week, reports surfaced hinting that Xiaomi may lead the way in introducing smartphones equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chip within their premium Xiaomi 15 series.

Redmi's Affordable Alternative

It is also speculated that Redmi is planning to unveil a device featuring the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 but at a more budget-friendly price point. This anticipated phone is expected to be part of the forthcoming Redmi K80 series.

Potential November Launch

A recent leak from Weibo tipster Smart Pikachu now suggests that the Redmi K80 series could potentially debut in the market as early as November.

Qualcomm is slated to launch the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC in October. Subsequent speculations indicate that Xiaomi might reveal the Xiaomi 15 series smartphones during the same month, possibly paving the way for the introduction of Redmi K80 series devices in November.

Expected Features

If the rumors hold true, the Redmi K80 Pro is rumored to incorporate the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chip, while the standard model might run on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor.

Additionally, as per the tipster, both the Redmi K80 and K80 Pro are anticipated to feature a 2K resolution display akin to the Redmi K70 and K70 Pro models.

However, Smart Pikachu indicates that there might not be a Redmi K80E, the supposed successor to the K70E, this year. This decision purportedly aligns with Xiaomi's strategy to concentrate the Redmi K series on premium offerings.

Despite the limited information available at present regarding the upcoming Redmi K80 phones, we will continue to provide updates on any new developments.
