The Redmi K60 Gaming, as the name suggests will be a gaming-centric phone and will cater to a niche audience. The handset is said to come with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which is said to be unveiled during the Snapdragon Tech Summit in November. The chipset will be based on TSMC’s 4nm process and would feature a 1 + 2 + 2 + 3 core configuration. The SoC s said to come with a Cortex X3 core, two Cortex A720 cores, two CortexA720 cores, and three Cortex A510 cores.

The report further mentions the Redmi K60 Gaming will debut in early 2023 in China but might not be introduced in global markets, not even under the POCO branding. This comes as a surprise considering the Redmi K40 Gaming and Redmi K50 Gaming were launched as POCO F3 GT and the POCO F4 GT in global markets. The report says the Redmi K60 Gaming might be limited to China owing to the mediocre reception of the POCO F4 GT. We should know more details about the Redmi K60 series going forward.
