2K, 4000 cd/sq.m, Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, 5000 mAh, 120 W – cheap
Today in China, Redmi officially introduced the new flagship Redmi K70 Pro. This is the brand's first smartphone based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 single-chip system.
Accordingly, this is the most powerful Redmi in history. In AnTuTu, Redmi K70 Pro scores 2.247 million points – on par with Xiaomi 14 and other flagships on Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 (with the exception of Red Magic 9 Pro). A very large vapor chamber is responsible for cooling the SoC and components.
The temperature of the components is monitored by 9 sensors, and they are located not only in the area of the SoC and battery, but also in the main camera modules. Data from these sensors is analyzed by AI. In general, the Redmi K70 Pro uses AI almost everywhere (this applies to scenarios for using the smartphone by the user, and analysis of shooting conditions, and optimization of performance in games), so it can be called an AI smartphone. Sorry, Samsung.
The OLED C8 screen, jointly developed by TCL and Redmi, is characterized by a diagonal of 6.67 inches and a resolution of 2K. An important feature of the display is its ultra-high brightness of 4000 cd/sq.m. In terms of peak brightness, Redmi K70 Pro has surpassed all smartphones currently on the market. But OnePlus 12 will have higher peak brightness.
The main sensor of the Redmi K70 Pro main camera is a 50-megapixel Light and Shadow Hunter 800 optical format 1/1.55 inches with large pixels measuring 2 microns. The module contains a wide-angle lens with an F/1.6 aperture and an optical image stabilization system.
The module with a telephoto lens (it provides 2x optical zoom) uses a 50-megapixel sensor, and the third module uses a 12-megapixel sensor and an ultra-wide-angle lens with a viewing angle of 120°.
The Redmi K70 Pro battery capacity is 5000 mAh and supports 120 W charging. Redmi K70 Pro is the brand's first model with HyperOS based on Android 14 out of the box.
The price of the version with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory is $460. The cost of other configurations is as follows: 16/256 GB – $505, 16/512 GB – $545, 24 GB/1 TB – $615. Redmi K70 Pro has become the most affordable smartphone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3; the basic versions of other flagships are about $100 more expensive.
Along with the regular Redmi K70 Pro, a special version created in collaboration with Lamborghini, as well as the Redmi K70 and the Redmi Watch 4 smart watch, were presented today.
