Last week, the company has been teasing Indian “pianophiles” by creating buzz about the large battery and high-quality build of its upcoming Redmi K30 smartphone. After tossing around a couple of leaks and guesses related to the specs and launch date of handsets in India; Xiaomi has, at last, affirmed the final date for the Redmi K30 series.
The China-based OEM, Xiaomi K30 is currently set to launch on December 10 in India. Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing declared this news on the Chinese social media platform Weibo.
Xiaomi has claimed that this smartphone is going to adopt the latest 5G technology and is expected to make a grand entrance as a 5G compatible device in 2020.
It is no later than August 2019 that we got to heard mumbles about the Redmi K30 series. At the time, Weibing had stated that the phone will include a 5G network and support.
Another teaser from famous leakers affirmed a punch-hole display on the Redmi K30. The smartphone is additionally expected to house double front cameras in the pill-formed punch-opening. In a recent conference by Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun, he discussed releasing an influx of reasonable Xiaomi phones with 5G support. Jun further stated that the elusive range of Xiaomi’s handsets that are going to be unveiled in the first quarter of 2020 would be available for $285 or more and these smartphones will surely offer a 5G network.
The brand recently implied that the K30 won’t be the most reasonable 5G phone out there, however, it won’t be too costly either.
This counts with past tidbits and may put to bed the idea of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 powering the K30 series of smartphones as well. On the one side of the story is the images have recommended that the standard K30 would highlight a similar processor as its predecessors, the Snapdragon 730 does exclude a 5G modem. The 5G-competent MediaTek Dimensity 1000 could be utilized rather, as Xiaomi CEO Lu Weibing indicated. However, the distinctive SoCs that powered the K20 and K20 Pro, but now we would not preclude the possibility of using it once again in the K30 series. In the event that Xiaomi settles on Qualcomm in the K30 arrangement rather than MediaTek, at that point it would probably utilize the Snapdragon 855 Plus, which has a 5G modem.
The first batch of Redmi’s recent teasers was shared by Mi India’s official Twitter handle, and once again focused on the handset’s superior build. The teaser included the image of a cactus and a patch of green grass next to each. It is possible the company is having a go at the somewhat rough finish of the back of the K20 series. And the timing of the dig couldn’t be more apt, as the launch of the Redmi K30 is on December, 10.
If one looks beyond the context of the teasers, Xiaomi has revealed very little about the upcoming device, even though the launch date is just around the corner. Of course, a regular part of the smartphone’s marketing campaign has been the use of the letter ‘i’. The letter has been used in all promotional materials, event invites, and teasers. Perhaps that is a jab at the iOS. Though we must say, taking on Apple Inc would be a rather bold marketing objective.
From the leaks over the last couple of weeks, what can be expected is that the Xiaomi Redmi K30 series will run Android 10, will be powered by Snapdragon 855 Plus. Other rumored features include the 60 MP sensor and a well-known 48 MP camera sensor found in numerous cell phones released for the current year.
