Recent reports indicate that Xiaomi is gearing up to launch a flagship smartphone that carries the code-name “K8”.
The code name was rumored to be paired with Xiaomi Mi Mix 4, but things are turning now. Reliable Chinese tipster Digital Chat Station says that the K8 code-named smartphone does not belong to the Mi Mix series. He also claims that the smartphone will be launch next month, August 2021.
Without revealing the chipset name, the tipster claims that the phone has top-tier configurations. Past leaks have told us that the smartphone is being tested with Qualcomm’s most powerful Snapdragon 888 Plus chipset. The phone is said to have a 5,000mAh battery. It may offer 120W fast wired charging and 80W fast wireless charging.
As of now, Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is the company’s most powerful phone with industry-leading display quality, powerful processor, and outstanding cameras. Now, it seems that the “K8” code-named smartphone might be the new top-end flagship from Xiaomi. We won’t have to wait very long as the device is likely to go official next month. Xiaomi is also expecting to unveil MIUI 13 in August. So, there’s a chance that the MIUI 13 may debut in the new flagship phone coming next month.
Xiaomi Mi Pad 5
Xiaomi is reportedly in the works to launch a new tablet which could be Mi Pad 5. It is said to be offered in two SoC options – the lower version with Snapdragon 860 and the higher one may get Snapdragon 870 SoC. It may feature an 11-inch 2K display, 120Hz refresh rate, and 480Hz sampling rate. The tablet may launch in August 2021 and likely to compete with Huawei MatePad 11.
