Xiaomi has confirmed the launch of a new Redmi K-series smartphone. The company had earlier confirmed the launch of a new smartphone in the Redmi K50 series with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. Reports suggested that the Redmi K50S series will debut with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon flagship chipset.
However, Xiaomi today confirmed that it will be launching the Redmi K50 Extreme Edition with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. The device will debut in China later this month.

Redmi K50 Extreme Edition: Launch
Redmi K50 Extreme Edition will be the fourth smartphone of the K50 series. The device will be the first in its series to feature Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. Xiaomi did not confirm any other details about the upcoming smartphone.
The Redmi K50 Extreme Edition could be the rumored K50S series phone that was rumored to launch in China. Xiaomi did not explicitly confirm or deny the launch of the Redmi K50S series. Hence, it may be possible that the K50S series and Redmi K50 Extreme Edition may launch together.
