Xiaomi just announced the successors to last year’s Redmi K60 lineup in a Chinese event today. The new lineup consists of the Redmi K70E, vanilla Redmi K70, and Redmi K70 Pro. In this article, let’s have a look at the K70 and its pro sibling alongside their features, full specifications, and expected price in Nepal.
Redmi K70 and K70 Pro Overview
Design and Display
Both K70 phones feature similar designs with flat edges and glass backs. The standard K70 is available in Black, White, Moonstone Blue, and Purple colors while the K70 Pro goes for your typical Black, White and Blue color options alongside a super special Automobili Lamborghini Squadra Corse edition.
Both sport 6.67-inch QHD+ OLED screens from TCL. The 120Hz panels support 12-bit colors, have 2160Hz touch sampling rate, 3840 Hz PWM dimming, and can reach an astonishing 4000 nits of peak brightness.
Under the hood, the Redmi K70 is powered by last year’s flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor while the pro variant gets the newer SD Gen 3. To keep the chips cool, you also get a 5000 mm2 heat-dispersing area with a vapor chamber.
In terms of memory, the base variants of both Redmi K70 and K70 Pro feature 12GB of LPPDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 4.0 storage. But while the Pro version can go up to 24GB / 1TB, the vanilla K70 maxes out at 16GB / 1TB.
The devices run on Android 14-based HyperOS out of the box.
Though both phones sport triple-camera setups on a rectangular island, all the lenses do not translate over. The primary shooter for both is a 50MP Sony LYTIA 800 lens with a 1/1.55″ sensor and OIS.
The ultrawide in the K70 is an 8MP shooter while the Pro sibling gets a 12MP one. Similarly, the pro treatment continues with the telephoto lens where we see a 50MP 2x portrait cam on the K70 Pro as opposed to the “AI Cam” on the standard variant. On the front, we see the same 16MP selfie cam housed in the hole-punch.
Battery and Extras
Fueling the Redmi K70 devices is a 5000mAh battery. Both the vanilla K70 and K70 Pro support super fast 120W fast charging promising a full charge in under 20 minutes (~18 minutes). For safety and longevity, there are P2 (power) and G1 (battery) chips to improve battery life and overall power management.
Other features include NFC, Bluetooth 5.3, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and WiFi 7 support.
