Due to the increasing competition from fellow OEMs, Xiaomi has been making budget-oriented smartphones with flagship-level specifications. One such example is the Redmi K-series.
Xiaomi has confirmed the launch of its upcoming Redmi K-series smartphone, Redmi K30, in December. The smartphone will launch in a month but has already started making appearances on several Chinese websites under the model number ‘M2001G7AE’. It has been certified by CCC and will come with a 30W charger in the box.
The smartphone was also listed on ‘5G digital mobile phone’ which means that it will come with 5G connectivity abilities.
Apart from this, live images of the upcoming mid-ranger were leaked on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo.
The first image shows the smartphone’s menu and confirms that it is the Redmi K30. The second image shows the display menu that shows the smartphone will offer a toggle between 60 Hz and 120 Hz refresh rate. It is very odd that Xiaomi has skipped the 90 Hz option. The ASUS ROG phone 2 also comes with a 120 Hz display but provides a toggle between 90 Hz and 120 Hz.
The last image shows the hardware and software specification of the smartphone revealing that the Redmi K30 will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC.
Moreover, the images reveal a pill-shaped punch-hole in the top right corner, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10+. The punch hole will be home to a dual-sensor selfie camera.
On the software front, the smartphone will most likely come with MIUI 11 but the images don’t reveal whether it will run on Android 10 or not.
