Redmi’s Upcoming Phone will Come with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2


While a lot of smartphone manufacturers are working on incorporating the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip in their new and upcoming phones, that’s not necessarily the case with Redmi’s upcoming K70 handset, which is scheduled to launch tomorrow in China.

More specifically, it’s expected that the Redmi K70 will feature last year’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 – while it is technically an “older” chip, the 8 Gen 2 has got to be one of the more well-received Qualcomm chips in recent times, thanks to impressive performance and power efficiency. The information was initially shared via Chinese social media site Weibo.

With that being said, it’s not exactly surprising to see Xiaomi use older chips on newer devices, given the brand’s push for budget-friendly devices which don’t necessarily lose out on performance. Other details of the Redmi K70 include two color variants which are available in purple and blue, as well as a 1220p resolution display with up to a whopping 4,000 nits of peak brightness.

Redmi fans will have to tune into tomorrow’s K70 launch event, which will be held online and will also showcase the spec’d out Redmi K70 Pro variant.
