Xiaomi launched the mid-range Redmi K30 series in China with a 120Hz high refresh rate LCD, Snapdragon 765G and a 64MP Sony IMX 686 main camera. But defying their own tradition of the Redmi K20 series, there was no “Pro” variant to be found. There was evidence that another Redmi device was coming with a Snapdragon 865 SoC, but nothing has been officially confirmed by Redmi or Xiaomi at this point. Redmi has finally confirmed that the Redmi K30 Pro 5G comes with Qualcomm’s latest flagship SoC, and has since revealed several key features of the upcoming smartphone, including a March 24 launch date. Now, Redmi has confirmed a few other key specs, such as the single pop-up camera, 64MP main rear camera, Game Turbo 3.0, improved vibration motor, and purple color variant.
In previous renders, one could spot the cutout on the top edge of the smartphone for the pop-up camera, but there was still a very small possibility that it could have been something else, even though the front of the phone was also clean and n had no cameras. Yet this new promotional image directly and very clearly confirms that the Redmi K30 Pro will come with a single pop-up front camera, with LEDs on the side, just like the Redmi K20 series.
What we can also clearly read is the “64MP” mark on the camera, which means that the primary rear camera will be a 64MP shooter. There are also three other cameras, and we hope to hear more very soon.
Redmi also states that the the vibration motor on the device has been improved and optimized for 153 MIUI scenarios. The display is also certified by TÜV Rheinland. There is also Turbo Game 3.0 which has some nifty new features such as night vision and voice changer. Finally, Redmi also showed the purple color variant of the Redmi K30 Pro.
Redmi has also confirmed that the Redmi K30 Pro will come with an AMOLED display, which is different from the LCD approach taken on the Redmi K30.
The screen is from Samsung, supports HDR 10+ and has a peak brightness of 800 nits and a peak brightness of 1200 nits. There’s no mention of a high refresh rate, so at this point we can assume the refresh rate is the standard 60Hz. Let’s hope that Redmi surprises us in this area.
We hope to learn more about the phone as teasers arrive. Maybe even something about Zoom editing, maybe?
