Now, company's general manager Lu Weibing has posted on Weibo asking users about features, configuration, and everything else they wish from the Redmi K40 successor.

To recall, the Redmi K40 smartphones come with 33W fast-charging support and the same charger inside the box. Xiaomi has already paired its more premium Mi 11 Ultra with 67W and 55W fast chargers for China and India markets, respectively. It may add one of these chargers with the Redmi K50 smartphones.

There is still no official word on the launch date of the Redmi K50 but, it should arrive before the end of 2021. In that case, we should hear more about the Redmi K50 series in the coming days. Xiaomi is likely to launch at least two models in the line-up Redmi K50 and Redmi K50 Pro before adding more in the future.

In India, it has recently launched the Mi 11 Lite as the fourth smartphone in the Mi 11 series. The line-up already includes the Mi 11X, Mi 11X Pro and Mi 11 Ultra. Mi 11 Lite is the most affordable of all these smartphones. It features a 6.5-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 90 Hz refresh rate, HDR 10+ support and a 10-bit panel for better contrast and colours.

The smartphone is just 6.8mm thick and weighs 157 grams. It comes with a glass rear panel and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G processor in India. Xiaomi has launched only a 4G variant in the country right now but has hinted that a 5G model may arrive in the future.
