Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing has teased that the Redmi K30 will feature the “world’s first high-resolution image sensor.” Gizmochina reported that Weibing didn’t reveal the resolution of the camera and the rest of the details will be announced at the launch event.

The Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro and Mi Note 10 both feature Samsung’s 108 MP camera sensor. While the same sensor could make its way to the Redmi K30, it’s being reported that it could actually feature the 60 MP Sony IMX686 camera sensor. Although the sensor is official, it hasn’t been officially announced for a commercially available phone.

The Redmi K30 series will be the company’s first smartphone to support dual-mode 5G that includes hardware for standalone (SA) and non-standalone 5G networks.

Two front cameras are seen horizontally aligned and are placed on the top right of the smartphone. The other teaser was about 5G support.
