Redmi K30 5G variant
Qualcomm recently announced the Snapdragon 765G chipset with an integrated 5G modem at Snapdragon Summit. Xiaomi will announce the Redmi K30 5G as the first smartphone with the chip in China next week. The Snapdragon 765G will be a huge update over the Snapdragon 730 mobile platform seen on its predecessor. It not only brings 5G to the premium mid-range price segment but also offers performance improvements with Kryo 475 CPU and Adreno 620 GPU. However, there are still no reports on whether the 4G/LTE version of the Redmi K30 smartphone will equip the same processor or not.
Expected specifications and features
As per previous leaks, Xiaomi Redmi K30 will pack a 4,500-mAh battery and also come with 30W fast-charging which Xiaomi claims can charge the device from 0 to 100 percent in just one hour.
With Redmi K30, Xiaomi is getting rid of pop-up camera altogether as the smartphone will instead come with a pill-shaped punch hole camera. It is said to feature a 64-megapixel main camera with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, an 8-megapixel telephoto camera, and a depth sensor.
