Redmi K80 Pro details leak

While we may associate Redmi with lower-end devices, over in China the brand has been churning out ‘flagship killers’ year after year in the K series – we just don’t ever see them launch internationally. Well, actually we do, sometimes, but as members of the Poco F series, not Redmi devices.

And so, let’s turn our attention towards the upcoming Redmi K80 Pro. This model will be the successor to the K70 Pro that launched in China last November. This device is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC, and boast a “2K” resolution screen, as well as a 5,500 mAh battery with support for 120W fast wired charging.

It’s rumored to also sport an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, as well as a 3x telephoto camera, up from 2x on the K70 Pro. A report from March claimed the Xiaomi 15 series and the OnePlus 13 would also switch to ultrasonic fingerprint scanners, which can be faster and more reliable than their optical counterparts.

According to the tipster posting this info on Weibo, the Redmi K80 Pro will be “like a flagship”, but that might impact its pricing – in fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if a price hike is involved, compared to its predecessor’s launch price.
