Xiaomi’s independent brand, Redmi has a new model to offer which is the Redmi K50 Ultra. This smartphone offers flagship-level specs and features but at a mid-range price tag. Since it is a device in the K50 Series let’s have a quick look at how the new Redmi K50 Ultra differs from the Redmi K50 Pro that was announced a few months back.

DESIGN

K50 Pro was announced first, and a few months after they announced the K50 Ultra and in terms of the form factor, both devices remain the same. They are about 8.55mm in thickness and weights around 201 grams. They both sports a subtle curve at the back with round corners for a better grip. Both devices have a smooth texture and matte-like finish. Even the fingerprint sensor are placed identically.

They start to differ when it comes to color variants, along with some minor changes. The K50 Ultra offers 3 color variants which are black, gray, and light blue. There is also a special AMG edition that sports a dark gray along with some green accents. As for K50 Pro, it offers green, grey, blue, and a special black edition.
As I mentioned earlier there are some minor changes made, like the narrower camera module with the sensors aligns vertically for the K50 Ultra. While the K50 Pro uses a circular camera module that houses all of its camera sensors.

Despite it being a minor change the K50 Ultra shows a more modern and premium-looking design giving a slight edge in this department.

DISPLAY

As for their display, both smartphones boast the same 6.67″ panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, 480Hz touch sampling rate, Dolby Vision, and HDR10+ support. But here is where they differ, Redmi K50 Ultra comes with a 1.5k resolution which is a (2712 x 1220) display instead of the 2k (1440 x 3200) (WQHD+) of the K50 Pro.

The drop in resolution on the higher-end Ultra model is definitely surprising but won’t be much of a problem. So whichever device you pick you still get a pretty decent display.

SPECS AND SOFTWARE

As for their chipset, the K50 Ultra is powered by Snapdragon’s latest flagship chip which is the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Soc. While the K50 Pro is powered by a flagship chipset from MediaTek which is the Dimensity 9000. So the K50 Ultra is in big advantage here since the 8+ Gen 1 SoC delivers an impressive overall performance including sustained gaming.

As for their memory options, they are both maxed at 12GB ram and 256GB storage, plus they both run on Android 12 based on MIUI OS. So in terms of overall performance based on paper, the K50 Ultra is the choice in this comparison.

CAMERA

The camera setup remains the same on both the K50 Pro and the K50 Ultra. Both are equipped with a whopping 108MP main camera with an OIS, 8MP wide-angle shooter with a 119 field of view, and a basic 2MP f/2.4 macro camera.

Despite them having the same identical camera hardware, the chipset that they carry will contribute to the final output of each photo and video. Traditionally, the Snapdragon chipset outputs better camera samples than its MediaTek counterpart we expect the same case as the K50 Ultra.

BATTERY

As for their battery, they are both packed with a 5000mAh battery which is paired with a 120W fast charging. In terms of battery and charging, you won’t be worrying much about it because of the charging speed and huge battery.

Unfortunately, given their affordable status, both the Redmi devices don’t support Wireless Charging.

CONCLUSION

The Redmi K50 Ultra ranked higher than the Pro model, so if you want the best performance and features, it makes sense to go for the new Ultra model. On the other hand, the Redmi K50 Pro is still a pretty good option. It comes with an efficient yet powerful Dimensity 9000 chipset with a 2K resolution display and a similar camera setup.

But if you are getting the Ultra for a few dollars more, it makes complete sense to get the newer model with Qualcomm’s most powerful chipset.
