Xiaomiui has shed some light on the Redmi K60E, one of the three Redmi K60 series smartphones outlined by Kacper Skryzpek, the others being the Redmi K60 and Redmi K60 Pro. While we speculated that Redmi K60E could be short for Redmi K60 Extreme, Xiaomiui claims that it will serve as a successor of sorts to the Redmi K40S. For reference, Xiaomiui claims to have obtained all the details below by examining the MIUI codebase.

Xiaomi has reportedly assigned model number ‘22127RK46C’ and code name ‘Rembrandt’ to the Redmi K60E, with the former already seen at 3C in China. According to Xiaomiui, the Redmi K60E is a reworked Redmi K50S, which itself was renamed Xiaomi 12T. For context, Xiaomi has not released the Xiaomi 12T in China; the smartphone launched in other markets last month with, among other things, a MediaTek Dimensity 8100 Ultra chipset, a 1220p AMOLED screen and a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 120W fast charging.

The Redmi K60E dips into the parts bin of the Redmi K50S for 120W wired charging support, but Xiaomi is rumored to have replaced the Dimensity 8100 Ultra with the Dimensity 8200, details of which leaked earlier this week. Xiaomiui adds that Xiaomi will only sell the Redmi K60E in China, presumably because of the similarities between it and the Xiaomi 12T. However, the Redmi K60 and Redmi K60 Pro should receive global releases, albeit apparently under the POCO F5 series.
