Redmi K50 Pro Unboxing and Review: Dimensity 9000 Powerhouse!
That being said, the rest of the series has finally arrived, and i have with me here today the brand new redmi k50 pro the k50 pro is one of the first smartphones in the world to feature the four nanometer run: mediatek dimensi t9000 chipset, which is the Main reason why the k50 pro released later than its sibling, the k50 gaming edition since that device is powered by the snapdragon 801 cpu, well have to see how the new dimension 9000 chip performs. But the smartphone itself comes in at the exact same price as its predecessor, the k40 pro its cheaper than the k50 gaming edition and a hell of a lot more affordable than the flagship xiaomi 12 pro. The new redmi king may be very well priced, but does that mean corners have been cut? Lets find out in my unboxing and review of the redmi k50 pro Music, the redmi k50 pro comes in four different color variants. You can pick it up in fantasy blue, which has a glossy back dim light green, which has a matte back as well as silver track, which also has a matte back, or the version that i have with me today, which is also a glossy glass back known. As ink feather black, i guess its pretty obvious why its called ink feather black, that is because of the nano micro crystalline back and inside that we have sparkling ice crystals its very subtle but looks super unique inside the device.
We have a 5 000 milliamp hour battery and crazy, fast 120 watt charging, as well as the brand new mediatek diamond c9000 chipset. We have a seven layer, vapor chamber liquid cooling system, lpddr5x ram, ufs, 3.1 storage and bluetooth 5.3. The display is protected by gorilla glass victus. We have a gorilla glass back, but unfortunately, wrapping around is a plastic frame, whereas the k50 gaming edition has an aluminum frame. The k50 gaming edition doesnt have an ip certification, but the k50 pro over here does that being an ip53 dust and splash resistance certification. The main camera here is quite a bit better than the k50 gaming and better than last years, k40 pro lineup, that being a 108 megapixel isoscell hm2 sensor, but the ultrawide and macro are unchanged at 8 megapixels and 2 megapixels respectively. The ultra wide shot looks okay. It is only 8 megapixels, 108 megapixel main looks decent, packed with detail, putting it down 9 to 1 betting to 12 looks even better. You can do two times digital zoom over here with the 108 megapixel shot, as well as bending down nine to one which looks better thanks to ai five times. Digital zoom over here can go up to a max of ten times. Digital zoom still kind of looks. Okay, i guess you could say and of course we can get up close and personal to a subject. Thanks to that 2 megapixel macro sensor, which does an average job and yes, we can shoot portrait picks as well.
We do have 1080p 60fps main video recording over here, ive seen better, but it looks alright, its nice and smooth thanks to ois. We also have 4k 30fps, but get this. There is no 60fps option when recording video at 4k and theres. No ak video at all, which is a bit of a bummer, and while we can record ultra wide, were capped to 1080p and 30fps no 60fps option over here and no 4k either. Recording ultrawide at night looks as bad as most xiaomi devices do when using this 8 megapixel ultra wide cam and recording 4k 30fps at night, doesnt look too bad still a bit of a glare effect over there a little bit of pixelization. It looks okay, though its nice and bright and of course, 1080p 60 at night is a lot darker, but it looks a lot more natural and the colors are more realistic, but we do have a night mode option, though the night mode pretty much just drops the Frame rates, which inevitably just raises up the brightness, but once again details are dumbed down. Ultrawide at night looks okay with night off night on, looks okay as well. Going to the main sensor. Taking night mode off looks okay night mode on does look a hell of a lot better than night mode off and digitally zooming in by two times looks average night mode on does make it look a bit better, but once again dumbs down the detail same thing.
Can be said with five times: digital zoom, with night mode off and night mode on and of course, max zoom is 10 times, regardless of whether youre using night mode off or night mode on the back cameras are okay. I guess you could say at this price bracket, theyre more than decent on the right side of the device. We do have a power button mixed up with a physical fingerprint sensor, above that we have the volume rocker at the bottom of the device. We have a dual sim 5g tray over here, no expandable storage. Unfortunately, though we do have that water resistant seal, we have a usb 2.0 type c port and alongside that is the first dual stereo speaker over here, which is paired up with dolby atmos. Second one at the top – and we also have an ir blaster at the top of the display in a punch hole. It sets a 20 megapixel imx 596 sensor, which is the same one that we saw in the k50 gaming edition. These selfie photos look alright theres a bit of detail over there, but it blows out the shot. Quite a bit portrait looks pretty decent too, with pretty much perfect edge detection. The redmi k50 pro is, unfortunately, capped at 1080p and 30 fps when using the selfie cam to record video. Nevertheless, let me know what you guys: think of the video and audio quality when recording with the selfie cam on the brand new k50 pro.
The gaming edition of the k50 lineup can record 1080p 60fps selfie video, where this is capped to 30fps, which is once again a bit of a bummer and taking selfies at night. You can switch on the night mode on option and it really does not look the best and there is no night mode option for the portrait mode and using the flash once again is very, very average. The selfie camera is a bit of a mixed bag. Once again, like i mentioned with the k50 gaming edition, though at least that had better recording and of course we have that always on display which can be kept always on, as was the side mounted physical fingerprint sensor, even though its an amoled display, there is no Fingerprint underneath the screen and we can customize our display with a new wallpaper set called crystallization and it pretty much matches the micro crystals found at the back of the ink feather version that i have over here, pretty nifty. If you ask me, we also have 2d face unlock that uses the selfie camera and the display itself is a 6.67 inch led flat dot display. It has dolby vision, hdr 10 plus dci, p3 color gamut rating and 1200 nits of max brightness, which is 100 less than the k50 gaming edition. The phone, however, does bump things up when compared to the gaming edition. It now has a wqhd plus display with 526 ppi, and it has a fixed 120 hertz refresh rate no ltpo tech over here.
So it cant refresh as low as 1 or 10 hertz, its sticking to 120 hertz most the time and we do have 480hz touch sampling rate, no pulse width, modulation rating. Here either we do have miui 13 skinned over android 12, which is less about features and more about optimizations, like ive said in many recent xiaomi review videos that ive done its pretty much the same old xiaomi software and yes, they are google services and, of course, The play store works as well on the redmi k50 pro we do have 12 gigs of lpddr5x ram and you can add an extra three gigs to that with ram extension. And yes, we have the new four nanometer run. Mediatek dimension 9000 octa core cpu. It has one ultracore sitting at 3.05, gigahertz three super cores at 2.85 gigahertz and four efficiency cores at 1.8 gigahertz and when combining that new chipset with the new included performance mode over here yields an antutu score of 1 million. Twenty thousand three hundred and fourteen points and when it comes to geekbench, it got a much higher single core and multi core score when compared to snapdragon 8gen, one powered smartphones with a single core score of 1307 and a multi core score of 4612.. But when running a 3dmark wildlife, it got a pretty terrible score of 8’4 with an average fps of 50.3, and i did test it over 20 times because it just didnt seem right, but at least its still quite a bit better than last years flagships.
But of course we can use this chipset for more than just running benchmarks. We can actually play games on it and enabling the fps content in developer options and hopping into our first game, which is gentian impact. We do have a game space over here where we can enable performance mode which were going to be doing on the next. Two games well be playing running highest possible graphics over here with the max available frames per second, since there is a cap being 60 fps and the redmi k50 pro managed to get somewhere between 30 and 58 frames per second min and high, with an average of Around 55, which is pretty similar to the min and max snapdragon 801 powered smartphone on my channel, which sits between 34 and 58 fps. I thought it would do a tad better than that at least a bit more stable, but nevertheless its on par with the latest. That qualcomm has to offer and running bullet force over here with ultra graphics and max fps. This game does not have a frames per second cap, it is unlimited and we managed to get between 111 and 122, which is slightly less stable than the average snapdragon 8gen. One powered smartphone on my channel, which averages between 113 and 122 fps and while the k50 gaming edition had quad stereo speakers, this only has dual stereo speakers. Nevertheless, lets go ahead and give them a listen while playing a game Music and now its time to give those speakers a listen while playing some music Music.
The redmi k50 pro is a serious powerhouse thanks to its new dimension. 9000 chipsets super fast lp, ddr5x ram gorilla glass, victus, protected wqhd, plus oled display dolby atmos, enhanced dual stereo speakers and a huge 7 layer, vapor chamber cooling system. It has a new design which is quite subtle, but is sure to turn some heads thanks to its new nano micro, crystalline backplate, that sparkles with ice crystals and while its newly formed camera module houses, a superb 108 megapixel, isoscell hm2 main sensor. It still has a subpar ultra wide and macro camera, not to mention 4k. Video is kept at 30fps the milliamp hour. Battery capacity is larger than the gaming editions. 4 700 milliamp hour cell. It has the same 120 watt wide charging as the gaming edition and while the k50 gaming edition may cost a tad more its better than the k50 pro in many ways it has aluminum frames a brighter display 1920hz pulse width, modulation, 4k, 60fps back, recording a 1080p 60Fps selfie recording a quad speaker system, a larger cooling system and even has physical pop up gaming triggers, but at the same time the k50 pro has the gaming edition beat with bluetooth 5.
