The Redmi K30 is believed to launch in a 4G and 5G configuration variant. The device will succeed this year's Redmi K20 smartphones and its highlight is expected to be 27 W fast charging and a 120 Hz screen. Today's leak is pretty much in line with these details as well.
In a post on Weibo, a leakster has shared the preliminary specification sheet of the Redmi K30, which claims that the 4G variant of the smartphone will sport a 6.66-inch LCD screen with a 20:9 aspect ratio and a 1080 pixel resolution. The purported specs sheet also suggests that the display will sport a 120 Hz refresh rate. The display is believed to be protected by the 5th generation Gorilla Glass.
The specification sheet also suggests that the Redmi K30 will sport a physical fingerprint sensor but on the edge of the phone. We believe it will likely be on the power button so you can wake and unlock the phone at the single tap and click.
Powering the device will apparently by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chipset, with a starting RAM and storage configuration of 6 GB + 64 GB. The device will reportedly run Android Q-based MIUI 11.

The leak also claims that the smartphone will be priced starting CNY 1,999, which is a little over Rs 20,000 as per today's exchange rate.
While the leak specifies these details to be for the 4G variant of the Redmi K30, we believe that, if true, the 5G variant will likely sport similar features as well.
As Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing has already confirmed, the smartphone will launch in China on 10 December. The Redmi K30's India launch timeline is currently unknown.
In addition to this leak, famous Xiaomi tipster, who goes by the name Xiaomishka, has shared a live image of a device he claims is the Redmi K30.
