Thus, this is not entirely a surprise. However, none of the Redmi K-series phones in China uses a MediaTek processor. If this is the case, this will be the first K-series phone to use a MediaTek chip.

Xiaomi’s partnership with the Taiwanese chipmaker MediaTek is quite old. The Chinese maker already produced smartphones featuring MediaTek chipsets due to its cost-effective value.
