In the previous article, we had on hand the Redmi K50 Gaming, one of Xiaomi’s newly launched gaming phones with strong performance, equipped with many features to support mobile gamers. Like last year, Redmi K50 Gaming also has a special version, but this year’s version will be cooperated by Xiaomi with Mercedes-AMG.
The full name of this special edition is called “Redmi K50 Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Gaming Phone”. As the name suggests, the appearance of the Redmi K50 Mercedes-AMG is customized to the style of F1 Mercedes-AMG racing cars, creating a distinctive feature for the product.
The box design of the Redmi K50 Gaming Mercedes-AMG also has its own style, using the main color tones of blue and black. The side has a picture of a Mercedes-AMG F1 W12 racing car, this is also the racing car that Xiaomi sent 1:43 model to the media in China before the launch date.
Notably, the charger of the Redmi K50 Gaming Mercedes-AMG is a high-power GaN charger that uses USB-C output, not USB-A like on the standard Redmi K50 Gaming version or like the Xiaomi 12 series. Users can even use this charger to charge the whole laptop
The combined “Redmi” and “AMG Petronas F1 Team” logos are engraved on the back of the device
As a gaming smartphone, Redmi K50 Gaming will be equipped with a trigger key system on the side. However, unlike other gaming phones on the market, the trigger on the Redmi K50 Gaming is a physical trigger, which can be activated with a lever. Playing games with a physical trigger is definitely more “cool” than a force-sensitive trigger
The bottom and top edges, the layout of the “holes” is the same on the standard version
Performance score of Redmi K50 Gaming Mercedes-AMG Edition when scored with AnTuTu and Geekbench 5. With this version, it seems that Xiaomi has updated the software to improve the heat dissipation of the device. Although when performing heavy tasks, the device becomes noticeably hotter, especially the area around the border, but not as hot as the standard Redmi K50 Gaming we had on hand before.
