Today, we have collected all the relevant information from trusted sources to give you a glimpse of the duo. Let us tell you the most important factor of the upcoming lineup that it will consist the first-ever 5G handsets under the Redmi brand. We have come to know lots of things prior to the official announcement. It includes official declarations as well as rumors, leaks and speculations.
So, let’s proceed further without wasting another second.
Xiaomi Redmi K30 and Redmi K30 5G Smartphone: Expected Specifications
Design and Construction
As per the external aesthetics, both handsets are pretty ergonomic and sleek to provide exquisite finish and smooth touch feel. We have witnessed lots of design images revealed officially. Further, it gets splendid craftsmanship with the dual front cameras in the punch-hole style.
The display is designed beautifully within ultra-narrow bezels although it embeds punch-hole structure. Similarly, another teased image broadcasts the Redmi K30 backside, consisting of a circular mode with four cameras aligned vertically.
Additionally, you can see the dual-LED flash under the camera module as well as the word ‘5G’. Near the bottom end, you will find the brand logo printed vertically. Others, the device places a 3.5mm jack, an IR blaster, and NFC etc.
Well, the upcoming Redmi K30 smartphone will host a 6.6” large IPS touch display with narrow bezels. The panel provides as high as 120 Hz refresh rate like the latest iPhones. Moreover, the screen captures dual cameras for selfies in the punch-hole design. These are aligned horizontally.
Notably, the 120 Hz refresh rate may be posed for the Redmi K30 Pro model, and the Redmi K30 phone might come with a standard 60 Hz rate.
In other display characteristics, the Redmi K30 will feature Full HD+ with 2400x1080p resolution and 29:9 aspect ratio. The company has offered the fingerprint sensor on the side. For protection, it installs the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 layer, which is sturdy and impressive, if not the latest.
Software and Hardware Configurations
The software department of the smartphone will run the latest Android 10.0 out-of-the-box along with the customized MIUI 11 skin on top.
As per the rumours, at least one of the two devices will configure the 5G connectivity support. Unlike all other 5G models launched previously, the Redmi K30 5G variant will not configure the Qualcomm-made processor. It is expected to be empowered by the MediaTek’s 5G chipset, consisting of flagship-standard specifications.
The smartphone most probably will host the Dimensity 1000, which has a 5G modem. Further, it boasts a dual-band 5G network, which means it will be compatible with both SA and NSA modes on the network.
Consequently, it doesn’t essentially need to depend upon 4G and can rely on LTE infrastructure if 5G is not supporting in certain zones. It is also exciting to know that MediaTek Dimensity 1000 was already performed and tested on AnTuTu platforms. Here it scores even better points against Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ and Apple A13 Bionic.
On the other hand, the Redmi K30 model will come with the 4G connectivity along with less powerful Snapdragon 730G SoC. However, it is an advanced edition of the processor we found on the Redmi K20. But we can still expect the presence of Snapdragon 730 as the GPU unit is appearing with the Adreno 618. In terms of storage space, the phone is being rumored to host the 64GB internal space. But we may find even more data storage strength in the final product.
Xiaomi has loaded the Redmi K30 smartphone will excellent camera specifications too along with the great offerings in the chipset department. At such an interesting price tag, you will find a pretty nice photography department, including 4 cameras on the back and 2 on the front side.
The primary quad-cam system (aligned vertically) will appoint the SONY IMX686 60 MP sensor as a leader to lead three other sensors like a 13MP ultrawide sensor, an 8 MP telephoto sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor.
On the opposite side, users will get dual selfie shooters aligned horizontally. The set will consist of a 32MP main sensor to click selfies and another ToF sensor for 3D facial recognition. Both are fitted in the punch-hole style to make a modern sense.
However, we get contrary opinions regarding the front camera setup. Some of the rumours are recognizing the secondary ultra-wide sensor, like in the Honor V30 Pro.
Well, the upcoming Redmi K30 smartphone is expected to be a house for a battery ranging between 4500 mAh and 5000 mAh. Moreover, it will be a long-lasting power grid just like the previously launched Mi CC9 Pro. You can get 27W Fast Charging support with the phone, which is not the fastest but still satisfying. To recall, the Redmi K20 hosts only 18W Fast Charging.

Thankfully, the company has already confirmed the launch date for the device via an official teaser. The official announcement will be published on December 10 for both flagship editions. Moreover, it will debut for the Chinese buyers only since the Redmi K Series is only meant for the local market.
