Xiaomi will unveil the new foldable Mix Fold 3, the Android tablet Pad 6 Max and the fitness tracker Band 8 Pro at a big event on August 14th. But that’s not all. Redmi is also part of the party and has its next premium smartphone with it. The Redmi K60 Ultra, which will be launched worldwide as the Xiaomi 13T Pro. Now, on its Weibo page, the company not only confirmed rumors about the Dimensity 9200+ chipset. Xiaomi also revealed the design of the new Redmi smartphone.
The display of the Redmi K60 Ultra / Xiaomi 13T Pro will support a refresh rate of 144 Hz and bring a resolution of 1.5K. Chinese manufacturers currently like to use this to advertise 1220p displays. Interestingly, both the Redmi K60 (Poco F5 worldwide) and Redmi K60 Pro (Poco F5 Pro) have a 1440p panel. Technically, the ultra panel would be a small downgrade.
According to the new Redmi K60 Ultra / Xiaomi 13T Pro teasers, there will also be a variant with 24GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. This would make it the first non-gaming smartphone with that much memory alongside the OnePlus Ace 2 Pro, which is also close to launch. There will be three cameras on the back. A 50-megapixel main camera will sit next to an ultra-wide camera and a 2-megapixel sensor for portraits or depth data.
All the details will come to light at Xiaomi’s big event on Monday, including the expected prices. For comparison: The Redmi K50 Ultra / Xiaomi 12T Pro started at a cheap CNY 3,000 ($415/€380), at least in China. There was also a limited Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team Edition priced at 4,200 CNY ($580/€530).
