Xiaomi announced the first flash sale of the Redmi K60 series has been a huge success with no less than 300,000 units of the phone sold in just 5 mins. The company took to the micro blogging platform Weibo to announce the sale results, claiming 100 of the K60 series phone finding buyers every second, or 60,000 units flying off the shelves every minute. The K60 series comprising of the base K60, the K60 Pro, and the K60E versions were launched in China last month though it went on sale in the country yesterday.
However, while the above sales figures are no doubt impressive, it still falls short of the record set by its predecessor. The K50 series which comprised of two models had notched sales of 3,30,000 units on the first day, which means the K60 series fell short by 10 percent. However, what remains to be seen is if the overall sales of the Redmi K60 series surpass that of the Redmi K50. As it is, the Redmi K60 comes with several attractive features such as the more recent Snapdragon 8 processor, 2K displays, and wireless charging.
Specifically, the Redmi K60 comes powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor while the Redmi K60 Pro features a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 processor under the hood. The Redmi K60E comes powered by the Dimensity 8200 chipset. All three versions come with the same 6.67-inch OLED display having a 2K resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate. Further, all three versions come with up to 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512 GB of storage on the top model.
For optics, a triple-lens camera arrangement is common on all three models along with an 8 MP ultra-wide angle lens and a 2 MP depth sensor. Accompanying the two is a 60 MP snapper on the Redmi K60 while the K60 Pro gets a 50 MP primary lens. The Redmi K60E comes with a 48 MP primary sensor.
Keeping the lights on is a 5000 mAh battery on the K60 Pro which is backed by 120W wired charging tech. The regular Redmi K60 and K60E come with a 5500 mAh battery with 67W wired charging support.
