Redmi K30 Pro Specifications
If you take a look at the design, it’s quite different from the pattern we’ve been seeing on the Redmi K20 series. Being visually different, the Redmi K30 Pro looks more towards the premium side of smartphones. There’s a circular camera design on the back that houses the quad-cameras. It comes with the same old motorized pop-up selfie camera.
There’s a 6.67-inches Full HD+ AMOLED display panel with HDR10+ support. But the only thing that disappoints fans is the use of a 60Hz display. Xiaomi says it used a 60Hz display to extend the battery life otherwise the battery drain would be more on the smartphone.
It features Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon 865 chipset that means there’s 5G support without a question. It is available in three variants—6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB, and 8GB+256GB variants of RAM and internal storage. The RAM is an LPDDR4X RAM while the internal storage is a UFS 3.0 storage. It runs on Android 10 with MIUI 11 on top of it.
The central aspect of this smartphone is quad-cameras. There is a 64MP primary sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2MP macro sensor, and a 5MP telephoto sensor, which also has macro capabilities. Although the 5MP sensor is swapped for a 30x hybrid zoom telephoto lens on the “K30 Pro Zoom Edition”. The cameras unleash the capacity to record videos at 8K resolution.
Other specifications include a headphone jack, IP53 water resistance, NFC, WiFi 6, Dual GPS, and IR Blaster. There’s a 4,700 mAh battery to support all these activities. It comes with a 33W fast charger besides USB Type-C. Xiaomi claims that they have got a new and much better haptic feedback system, which is powered by linear motors.
