Xiaomi Redmi K30 started leaking a lot lately, even though it’s clearly 2020 material. There was a leak for a Redmi K30 5G at some point during the week and now the folks of Science and Knowledge have created a render of it. Just like the rumors said, it comes with a dual selfie camera cutout.
Considering the specs of the Redmi K20, we highly expect the Redmi K30 to have at least a Pro version with 5G. The thing is that 2020 will also bring us midrange 5G phones, that will become trendy, as prices for 5G devices drop. This means that we should see the Snapdragon 735 5G CPU on the Redmi K30 5G and some flavour of the Snapdragon 865 on the Redmi K30 Pro. The Snapdragon 735 is already rumored for the midrange 5G powered Nokia 8.2 5G.
Now back to the concept, the design is rather generic, with a tall and wide screen, with minimal bezels and devoid of notches. Xiaomi Redmi K30 5G does have a dual cutout on the top right side for the selfie camera, borrowed from the Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 5G I’d say. It’s also a tad smaller than on those models. I see the audio jack is still intact and the metal frame is pretty buff here.
The phone also has a quad camera at the back, which is pretty much standard now, after so many quad cam Xiaomi models. If I were to speculate, I’d say we’ll see a 64 MP or 108 MP camera here, coupled with a telephoto camera, ultra wide camera and probably a Bokeh or Macro one. Honestly the design doesn’t surprise me, but frankly I’m glad we got rid of the pop up camera, which felt rather fragile.
