The Redmi K30 Pro has a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a tall 20:9 aspect ratio, a disappointing 60Hz refresh rate and a 180Hz touch sampling rate. It has a full-screen display with no punch-hole cutouts or notches but a motorized pop-up front camera similar to the Redmi K20 Pro from last year.

The back has a circular quad-camera setup right above the singular LED flash unit.

Internals and Storage

The device features Qualcomm’s latest and greatest SoC, the 7nm Snapdragon 865 with a 2.84GHz octa-core processor and up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1.

It also features the Adreno 650, which is currently the best mobile GPU available in Android smartphones.

The main camera on the Redmi K30 Pro is a 64MP Sony IMX686 sensor alongside a 13MP ultrawide lens, a 5MP macro shooter for close-up shots, and a 2MP depth sensor.

The Redmi K30 Pro Zoom Edition, on the other hand, swaps out the 5MP macro cam with a telephoto shooter capable of 3x optical zoom and 30x hybrid zoom.

The front-facing pop-up camera on both phones is a 20MP wide-angle lens that can capture HDR photos and record 1080p videos at 60 FPS.
