Redmi K30 confirmed by company executive, says will come with 5G support

Before you start jumping, Redmi K30 will not launch anytime before early 2020.


It's just been a few weeks that Xiaomi debuted its new K-series in India with the launch of the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro (review). Now, the company general manager Lu Weibing has confirmed that Redmi is already working on the successor — Redmi K30.

Weibing announced this on his Weibo page, where along with revealing that the device will officially be called Redmi K30 and that the company is already working on it, he also said that the smartphone will come with support for 5G connectivity.

Unfortunately, that is the entire extent of what we know about the Redmi K30 smartphone so far. However, we do believe that like the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro were launched alongside each other, the Redmi K30 will also be unveiled along with a Pro version.

To recall, the Redmi K20 Pro comes with a 6.35-inch display with an FHD+ resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The device has a fingerprint sensor of the in-display variety along with a pop-out front-facing camera which gives the phone a near bezel-less design.

Redmi's 'Flagship Killer 2.0' has certainly got the flagship-level internals as well. Powering the device is a Snapdragon 855 SoC which is paired with up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. The device runs on Android 9.0 Pie along with Xiaomi's MIUI 10 skin overlaying it.

In terms of optics, the Redmi K20 Pro has triple rear cameras which consist of a 48 MP primary sensor + 13 MP ultra-wide sensor + 8 MP telephoto lens with 2X optical zoom.

Apart from that Redmi has also added a Game Turbo 2.0 feature that allocates more resources for gaming.
