Redmi K70 Pro with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3

Redmi K70 Pro 1

The Redmi K70 and Redmi K70 Pro are going to bet on power. The Redmi K70 has the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the processor that has been installed on the most powerful Android phones of the year. Has up to 16 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB of storage and the battery is 5,000 mAh with 120 W charging.

Xiaomi does not forget about dissipation and states that it has introduced controlled dissipation systems with the help of AI and with a 5,000 square mm plate. And the screen is not far behind in specifications either.

Is about a 6.67-inch C8 OLED panel with 2K resolution, 2,160 Hz sampling, 3,840 Hz PWM and a staggering 4,000 nits. This panel is made by TCL and has a typical brightness of 700 nits with an HBM of 1,200 nits, so we will have to see under what circumstances the 4,000 nits are displayed.

If we go to the Redmi K70 Pro, we have the same flat screen, the same battery and 120 W charging. What changes is the heart. And, we jump to Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 the latest Qualcomm SoC which is the one that will carry the most powerful Androids of 2024 and is accompanied by up to 24 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB of storage.

And everything will be controlled by HyperOS the new Xiaomi operating system that is expected to also reach the West and that has already been released in the Xiaomi 14.

Redmi K70 Pro

If we move on to the cameras of the Redmi K70 Pro, the main sensor has 50 megapixels with a 1/1.55-inch sensor size, two-micron pixels with pixel binning, OIS and f/1.6 lenses. The telephoto also has 50 megapixels for a 2X and the third camera is a 12 megapixel wide angle.

In the Redmi K70 we have the same main sensor, but the wide angle drops to 8 megapixels and we lose the telephoto, which is changed for a 2 megapixel macro.

On the other hand, Xiaomi has presented the Redmi K70E. It is a model with a design very similar to that of its older brothers and that also has HyperOS as the operating system, but that changes in practically all sections.

The first thing is that the heart will be the Dimensity 8300 Ultraa very capable SoC that is new for MediaTek’s mid-high range and that promises a lot in its power/efficiency ratio. The battery goes up to 5,500 mAh and the charge is 90 W.

The screen has 1.5K resolution with a PWM of 1,920 Hz, a sampling rate of 2,160 Hz and a peak brightness of 1,800 nits. And the cameras are also somewhat more basic, with a 64 Mpx main sensor with optical stabilization
