Starting from 2019, Xiaomi has decided to also include its sub-brands in the top of the range market, a trend that is carried forward by Redmi K50 Ultra. Like every Xiaomi branded series, even the Redmi K one is not always the same every year and there was no real consistency between the models that are launched. First we had K20 and K20 Pro, then K30 4G / 5G, K30i, K30 Pro, K30 Ultra and K30S, finally K40, K40 Pro, K40 Pro +, K40S and K40 Gaming. Thus we arrive at 2022 and its most recent declination, so far composed of K50, K50 Pro, K50i and K50 Gaming: let's see what changes with K50 Ultra, two years after the latest Ultra model.
