The Redmi K30 is one of the more awaited Xiaomi smartphones in a while. With the launch just a few weeks apart, we have more teasers and information aiming at a different and new high-resolution camera making its appearance on this device.
The Redmi K30 will be Xiaomi’s primary mid-range smartphone with dual-mode (NSA and SA) 5G supporter. It is going to be revealed and launched in China on December 10, with all over availability anticipated at the beginning of 2020. There have been a few news and teasers which give us a more genuine sense of what to assume and expect from the smartphone.
Lu Weibing, the chief of Redmi who originally reinforced the reality of the Redmi K30, took to Weibo to hint the “world’s first high-resolution image sensor” on the smartphone. Xiaomi has previously revealed off the 108MP sensor newly, so we believe he’s not really talking regarding megapixels here, but concerning a new high-resolution sensor that no other smartphone as of now has.
Sony IMX686 image sensor
This is highly expected to be the 60MP Sony IMX686 image sensor, the successor to the famous 48MP IMX586 sensor. Sony hasn’t revealed much about it, but giving sample pictures on Weibo, attaching more power to the theory that it will debut on an output intended for the Chinese market at prime.
Snapdragon 735 SoC
Other news shows that it will be powered by the expected Snapdragon 735 SoC with Adreno 618 graphics, which will be Qualcomm’s primary mid-range 5G chipset. The Redmi K30 will also have a big display with a dual punch-hole for the selfie cameras, added first for Xiaomi. Surprisingly, this LCD panel is expected to be able to output at 120Hz, matching the top flagships today.
Around the same time, Realme, Oppo and Vivo are also expected to unveil their next wave of relatively affordable 5G phones for the coming year.
