It was only few months ago that Xiaomi has revealed the Redmi K20 (known as Mi 9T in Malaysia) to the world but yet here we are, looking at its successor which comes in the form of Redmi K30 series. Truth to be told, plenty of details regarding the phone have been revealed prior to its official announcement today.
For example, it is already known fact that the Redmi K30 is equipped with a rear camera that features 64MP Sony IMX686 sensor. Aside from that, the Redmi K30 rear camera system also comes with an 8MP ultra wide-angle camera, 2MP macro camera, and 2MP portrait depth sensor.
On the front side of the phone, the Redmi K30 also features a 20MP selfie and 2MP portrait cameras that are located on the top right part of its display. It has also been previously revealed that the phone comes standard with 4500mAh battery although only the 5G model supports the 30W fast charger while the 4G model is limited to 27W.
Speaking about the differences between the 5G and 4G variants of Redmi K30, they are also powered by different processors. Specifically, the Pro model is running on the newly announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G while the non-Pro variant relies on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G as its processor.
While both variants can be obtained with up to 8GB of RAM, Xiaomi equips the Redmi K30 5G with LPDDR4x-2133 RAM module but has chosen the slower LPDDR4x-1866 for Redmi K30 4G. Regardless of the variants, both of them have storage options of up to 256GB and also feature a 6.67-inch full HD 20:9 display with maximum refresh rate of 120Hz.
Price-wise, the Redmi K20 4G with 6GB/64GB setup goes for CNY 1,599 (~RM 946) while the 6GB/128GB, 8GB/128GB, and 8GB/256GB options are listed at CNY 1,699 (~RM 1,006), CNY 1,899 (~RM 1,124), and CNY 2,199 (~RM 1,302) respectively.
In terms of availability, the Redmi K30 series is only available for China for the time being. We’ll keep you updated if Xiaomi decide to release the new phone outside of its native market.
