Xiaomi just introduced the Redmi K50 Ultra, the world’s first phone with a 1.5K display. Aside from having a fantastic display, this device also has a flagship-class hardware department at a very reasonable price. This, together with the fast refresh rate, makes this device ideal for gamers and power users. If you require a similar gadget at the same price, you might consider the newest iQOO Neo7, which was introduced at the end of last month. It boasts a fantastic CPU, a long battery life, and a fantastic multimedia section. Many gamers are unsure which one to choose, which is why we decided to assist them. We did it with this comparison of the iQOO Neo7 and the Xiaomi Redmi K50 Ultra’s major characteristics.
The Redmi K50 Ultra’s design is more appealing since it has a more simple appearance, in my view. Its camera module is not intrusive, and the phone has a very high screen-to-body ratio, with a punch hole in the upper area of the display. The screen-to-body ratio of the iQOO Neo7 is even greater, but the inclusion of a massive camera module does not persuade me. It is also a larger phone due to the larger display, therefore it is not ideal if you want a more compact smartphone. Furthermore, the Xiaomi Redmi K50 Ultra is available in a special version dedicated to Mercedes AMG, with a highly unique back design and color selection. You should not miss it if you enjoy sports automobiles.
The Redmi K50 Ultra from Xiaomi has the most advanced display. It’s an OLED panel, the first with a 1.5K resolution of 1220 x 2712 pixels. This display can display up to 68 billion colors and has a very fast 144 Hz refresh rate, as well as Dolby Vision support and HDR10+ certification. The phone also has stereo speakers and an in-display fingerprint reader. The iQOO Neo7 features a 6.78-inch diagonal AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, a refresh rate of 120 Hz, HDR10+ certification, a peak brightness of 1,500 nits, and an in-display fingerprint reader. Furthermore, it lacks dual speakers in favor of a single mono speaker and lacks a 3.5 mm audio connection.
If you want a superior camera, you should go with the iQOO Neo 7. It sports a triple back camera with a 50 MP primary sensor with OIS, an 8 MP ultrawide lens, and a 2 MP macro shooter, as well as a front camera with a 16 MP resolution. The Redmi K50 Ultra is inferior but not disappointing, with a 108 MP main camera with OIS and the same secondary sensors, but a 20 MP selfie camera.
Specs & Performance
Despite the fact that these two devices have different CPUs, their performance levels are comparable. The Redmi K50 Ultra is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile platform, which features an octa-core architecture with a Cortex X2 CPU operating at 3.19 GHz, three Cortex A710 CPUs, four Cortex A510 CPUs, and an Adreno 730 GPU. The iQOO Neo 7 has a Mediatek Dimensity 9000+ mobile platform with a 4 nm manufacturing process and an octa-core architecture with a Cortex X2 CPU operating at 3.2 GHz, three Cortex A710 CPUs, four Cortex A510 CPUs, and a Mali G710 MC10 GPU. Both phones have up to 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal storage, however, the iQOO Neo7 has Android 13 out of the box (customized by OriginOS 3), and the Redmi K50 Ultra still has Android 12.
The battery life of these two handsets is similar, however, the Redmi K50 Ultra should last somewhat longer. The charging speeds are also comparable.
Price & Availability
The Redmi K50 Ultra costs around $430 or Php24,687, while the iQOO Neo 7 costs around $380 or Php21,816. Which one would you choose?
