The Redmi K50i marks the return of Redmi’s popular K series in India. The smartphone offers MediaTek Dimensity 8100, liquid cool technology, and a lot more at quite a competitive price. So, let us look at the specifications, features, availability, and expected price of the Redmi K50i in Nepal.

Redmi K50i Overview:

To reiterate, the last K series device, the Redmi K20 Series, was a quite successful product at the time. However, the K50i is not its successor—rather it’s a repackaged and rebagged Poco X4 GT that went official last month.

Design, Display

As a result, the K50i looks no different than the Poco X4 GT. It keeps the flat-edge design with slight curves on the back and will be available in Stealth Black, Quick Silver, and Phantom Blue colors.
